scantron (63) - Ontario, - DEC 8, 2012
December 6, 2012; 7.0% abv, 330 mL, trappist, BBD: 09/70/14 Aroma of belgian yeast, banana and bubble gum. Also some herbal hops evident with some spice. Pours a deep burgundy with a tan head which doesn’t stick around for too long. Sweet toasty malts with dark fruit. Spices from the booze are upfront while the herbal hops take a backseat. Nice carbonation from the bottle conditions. Medium bodied. Pretty good but nothing special within the style.

ClubGonzo (4548) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 27, 2015
Bottle. Slow gusher. Pours a clear dark ruby-hued brown body with a massive creamy off-white head. Aroma is red fruits, raisins, caramel, grains and hints of figs and toffee. Taste is caramel, toffee, figs, mild prunes and hints of grains, bread dough and candi sugar. Medium body, medium to high carbonation. A pleasant dubbel for sure; no big surprises but well crafted and true to style.

A nice Abbey Dubble. From the rich, dark taste, you’d suspect a higher alcohol content. A recommendation!

PlutonowyMan (105) - POLAND - MAR 16, 2015
Piana be?owa, drobna i trwa?a. Aromat jak i smak to bardzo delikatne nuty owoców le?nych i minimalnie karmel, a wszystko to jakby za ma?o wyra?ne. Wysycenie niskie. Augustijn Donker jest zbyt wodnisty i za ma?o tre?ciwy.Goryczka bardzo krótkotrwa?a niczym utwór Napalm Death "You Suffer" ( http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/You_Suffer ) i nie d?u?ej. Alkohol kompletnie niewyczuwalny. Piwo pije si? bardzo ?atwo, ale bez wi?kszego zaanga?owania kubków smakowych. Ten Augustijn jest raczej "?redni", szkoda.
