750 ml bottle shared by Tmoney99 (2011 notes). Pours a lightly hazy caramel brown color with a large off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel, lightly toasted, mild spices, with dark fruit. Not overly complex, but worth trying.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The appearance of this beer is a reddish orange color with a large off-white head and some fine-grain sediment throughout the liquid, and the aroma is reminiscent of sour fruit and yeast. The taste is mildly sour and slightly sweet, and the palate combines a medium body, average carbonation, slick texture, and a long finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Refrigerated corked and capped 75 cl brown bottle poured into a trappist glass. Pours translucent dark amber with medium brown/reddish hues and medium fluffy beige head. Aroma is dark candy sugar, medium body, medium carbonation, and nice big bubble lacing. Taste is dark candy sugar spice (mostly cinnamon), a little anise, and some dark fruit. The spices don’t add anything positive from my perspective, I prefer several other dubbels.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear very dark brown color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is somewhat sweet with elements of molasses to it and implies a rather sweet drink. Taste is fairly sweet, but not overly so. Slightly heavy and not overly drinkable, but passable.
