Red brown color, off white head. Has a very herbal and spicy base which gives a medicinal (cough sirup) effect together with the caramel and licorice flavors. It’s not overly sweet and medium dry in the finish. A very well balanced beer that doesn’t taste like 90% of the other "dubbel" (double) beers. It’s best feature is that every sip gives a different flavor nuance. It stays fresh and exciting to drink.

Nice belgian style dubbel. Fine aroma and a sweet body. Feels kind of basic stuff compared to some other dubbel beers, because theres not so much character.

tom10101 (2818) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Hazy brown with a small/medium beige head and little lacing. Aroma is of molasses, spices, dark fruits and a touch of alcohol. Taste is a tad more spicy and aroma so the molasses came second and his followed by dark fruits and, again, a touch of alcohol. Medium body. Maybe a tad week for the style. Medium carbonation. Slightly spicy finish. Quite decent Dubbel. Lack a bit of body, but it’s quite tasty nonetheless.

33 cl. 07-08-15. Grosse mousse. Robe rubis. Nez très fruité et malté avec une touche de réglisse/épices. Bouche sur les cerises, les raisins, les pommes et les malts. Corps cremeux de bonne densité. Finale axée sur la douceur et les épices. Facile à boire. Facile à aimer.

rodenbach99 (3158) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 30, 2014
Bouteille de 330ml. 07-08-15. Bière de couleur classique pour une double, un brun acajou sertit d’une mousse beige. Un nez de chocolat, noisette, épices nobles. Une bouche où l’alcool est discret mais les épices sont bien présents. Une finale piquante épicée et agréable.

mathieuc (1326) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 25, 2014
Pours a medium brown with red highlight. It is topped by a small white head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of raisins and other dark fruits, feeling almost artificial. Some syrupy notes, too. Taste is moderately sweet, in fact, it is drier than most abbey dubbels I think. Flavors are once again of dark fruits and candi sugar. Body is medium, carbonation as well. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky. Overall a fair dubbel, not the best but not the worst either.

Pours a dark redish brown body with a medium beige head. Hoppy aroma, almost like a lager. Nice and well balanced malty taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
