2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2016 Opaque dark brown, almost black color with a copper hue, and strong glass clinging activity. Light brown 4 fingers island head explosion, extra frothy with sparks, lasts around 15-20 minutes, with strong leggings.
Aromas of ginger, floral, molassy, and dark fruits. Flavors of syrupy molasses, dark fruits, ester fruits, spicy peppercorn, herbal and floral spices. Ginger bread feel.
Slick medium body with prickly carbonation. Strong and long finish, ending with an overly spicy feel, thick syrupy sugary feel, leathery and molassy tongue coat.
Overall average quality craft. OK flavors that are unbalanced and way too spicy and sugary. Too intense and doesn’t feel very fresh. Still good accessibility with low perception of alcohol.
Originally L’Amoszus Double with a score of 4.2 (8+4+8+5+17) Almost opaque dark brown, almost black color with a copper hue, and powerful activity. Explosive extra frothy light brown 4 finger sparkly island head, lasting around 15 to 20 minutes, with some very good legs.
Flavors of ester fruits including dark berries and apples, grapes, plums, cherries, toffee, molasses, yeasty caramel, floral and herbal spices. Highly sugary and yeasty with a nice sharpness.
Smooth almost creamy full body with a sharp perfectly balanced amount of carbonation. Medium strength finish with some ginger spices, a thick sugary molassy feel, and faint herbal bitterness.
Overall an excellent quality craft. Great complex flavors, very fruity and pleasant. Well intensified with a strong warming feel yet low perception of alcohol. Very good freshness for a dubbel. Excellent appetizer and highly accessible.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: clear cola red/brown with a short loose light beige head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: dark fruit, molasses and brown sugar, liquorice, citrus and spices. (7/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate-low bitter, light tart. (7/10) Medium-full body, moderate carbonation, off-dry slightly sticky and spicy warming finish. (4/5)
Aromas of raisins and figs heavily sweetened with brown sugar, and the taste follows, but it’s not so sweet as to become sickly. The moderate sustained carbonation probably helps there, and although it finishes a little sticky, it never becomes mouth-coating or cloying. Spicy and citrus flavours come through mostly in the finish, which is also the only indication of the fairly high ABV. Not the greatest Abbey Dubbel I’ve had, but definitely solid - and hard, if not impossible, to beat for the very reasonable price. (14/20)

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle bought at SAQ under the name L’Amoszus. Pours a darker brown with a small beige head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of dark fruits and caramel. Taste is of dark fruits, caramel, licorice. Moderately sweet. Body is medium-full, carbonation moderate and the alcohol shows a little. A little sticky. A more than fair dubbel, I didn’t expect as much!

Une bière avec un gout prononcé de réglisse de caramel. Un caractère très puissant.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bouteille 750 ml
Couleur : Brune foncée, faible carbonation et faible effervescence.
Arômes : Subtil, on croit reconnaître la senteur des boissons gazeuses au nez, me rappelant le Dr Pepper! C’est assez fruité également, allant chercher des tons de myrtilles ou de mûres.
Goût : La saveur me rappelle curieusement encore une fois le Dr Pepper en version alcoolisé. On goût le côté carbonisé de la boisson gazeuse, ainsi qu’un certain côté fruité.
Appréciation : C’est loin d’être mal fait. Profil de saveur intéressant, mais il manque de complexité pour que je considère cette bière comme l’une des meilleures de son style.

On tap at beerbistro. Rather faint aroma of raisins, toffee and caramel. Smells very sweet, and it is indeed. Flavour profile is typical for a dubbel. Very smooth. Lingering licorice and sweet orange flavours.

Favorite from the three from the brewery. Cola brown pour with a thin to medium rocky light tan head. Lovely malt forward aroma, caramel, molasses, some dark fruit. Decently sweet taste, heavier somewhat syrupy body, though the carbonation cuts through well.

Molasses and caramel foretaste with some fruitiness and raisin in the body. Complex with some nice depth but a little bit too sweet for my taste. A much more interesting beer than their whitbier though.
