Bottle at home Pours dark brown , big white head . Smell is very weird ... Green, but not at all in a hoppy manner, more like... earthy , leaves ,caramel, herbs ... Very complex and just weird . Taste is bit bitter, sweet, chocolate, bit metallic, earthy , caramel , malts, the herbal character is there, but way less than in the scent . Very , very complex beer, with the ideal carbonation . aftertaste is herbal earthy , soft and a tad sweet . No gusher, yet made by alvinne ( appatently different yeast according to the description . it IS possible !

Random pickup from a store in Milan, had no idea what it was. Medium brown, little head. Aroma is quite boozy, with chocolate, molasses, boozy dark fruit rum cake. Taste is pretty nice, very enjoyable sweetness with a slick finish. I thought it was great.

Bière heavy dark brown matured on oak, importée aux States par « Twelve percent » … cela ne s’improvise pas !! Mais elle ne fait quand même « que » 9 % abv au compteur... même s’il s’agit d’un « révérend père » (traduction du nom). Par contre elle est à ranger parmi les quadruple, et non simplement dans les « belgian strong ale » comme le fait ratebeer... Couleur brun châtain très foncé et opaque. Mousse beige très épaisse, avec des petits cratères en haut, puis crémeuse et stable à 8 mm, superbe. Arômes de bois de fût, pruneau, vin rouge en chai de maturation. Sublime. 1ère bouche soyeuse à veloutée à l’entrée en matière exceptionnelle, vineuse (dans le bon sens des grands crus), boisée, complexe avec des fruits noirs, du raisin et une pointe de porto. 2ème avec un peu de café très distingué sur les nuances vineuses, et une pointe de bois de rose. 3ème avec du bois, des fruits noirs, malt, levure. Tout y est. Arrière-bouche pleine, ample, vaste … que dis-je, prodigieuse. La longueur nous donne du bois exotique, du grand vin, du fût de chai de supérieure maison … Exceptionnelle longueur avec un charme inouï (à ne pas confondre avec inuit …). La levure est riche, intense, aux mille nuances. Superbe veine. L’alcool répond à son attente, il fait un admirable travail, avec une progression lente et infinie. La finale donne des nuances d’une finesse divine, comme les grandes tapisseries du Moyen-âge. CONCLUSION : suprême nectar qui anoblit la bière pour la porter aux confins des grands vignobles. Après ce genre de bière, vous ne devez jamais vous abaisser devant un dégustateur de vin. Egalité totale entre les deux breuvages. Exceptionnelle complexité de cette quadruple. Honneur soit accordé à ce révérend père !!!

Alengrin (2355) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
Abbey-style massive ale since 2008, with a creamy, yellowish beige head and misty bronze colour. Sweetly perfumed aroma of pear, port wine, dates, apple sauce, candi syrup, thyme, ginger, pepper. Relatively complex taste with candi sweetness, honeyish, oily and full mouthfeel, resinous, finishing in a subtle alcohol warmth with herbal hops that are applied too modestly to balance out the initial candi sweetness. Nice though, I you are into this style.

BlackHaddock (4052) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2014
Draft at the 2014 Brugge Beer Festival on 2nd Feb. Smooth, creamy body with chocolate notes throughout, this is easy drinking beer hides it’s alcohol very well although there is a mild ’spirit’ feel within the taste and aroma below the soft milk chocolate front. Medium sweetness for a chocolate flavoured brew.

Douberd (2513) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2014
Stubby bottle 330 ml, at home. Into a tulip. ABV 9% Dark brown colour on the body, dark beige on the foam. Quite thick, with good retention, leaving light lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, funk, sour grapes. Taste has also some sourness in it, again some grapes and funkiness, yeast, light caramel. Quite good. Medium thin body, carbonation towards the high side. Overall quite nice beer, it actually reminded me of some of the Alvinne brews.

jkwood04 (4126) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 20, 2014
11.2oz bottle in a teku. Pours dark brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of dark and chocolate and caramel malts, light oak, hints of funkiness, plus some dark fruits and light spices. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Average to smooth texture. A pretty unique Belgian Dark ale that is definitely worth trying.

Nice Belgian dubbel beer. Has the roasted sweetness, but also some oak, dark fruits and a special funk.

EddyBeer1 (920) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 6, 2014
Brune rougeâtre, effervescence moyenne-faible, col beige moyen. Malts toastés, caramel, légèrement amère, petit fruité, les foudres se goûtent un peu.

bartlebier (1884) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2014
Draught sample @BBF 02/2014, ZO. Listed as "dubbel" in festival booklet, which at 9% sounds odd but gives a better impression of this smooth and creamy beer than as Belgian Strong Ale. Upfront light milk chocolate malts meet cognac-style wood notes on a dryish palate. Slight smoke, woody acidity peeking around the corner. Easy drinker, smooth and creamy amped-up dubbel.
