Brune belge / Dubbel

Les moines trappistes, avec leur rigueur et leur savoir-faire, ont probablement le plus contribué au développement des traditions brassicoles. Étant prêts à tout pour offrir une boisson des plus délectables, les moines firent de multiples essais et certains allèrent même jusqu’à offrir le pardon à des fidèles en échange de leurs recettes de bière. Il ne reste aujourd’hui que sept abbayes trappistes qui produisent de la bière. C’est en leur honneur et à la mémoire des nombreux moines qui ont développé et aimé ces bières au fil des siècles que nous avons créé ce divin nectar. L’Assoiffé – 8 est une bière de type double belge aux notes maltées de fruits secs, agrémentées d’un soupçon subtil de mélasse et de noisettes grillées, le tout se terminant sur une finale douce, légèrement sucrée et peu amère.

Through their knowledge and rigor, Trappist monks made great contributions to the development of modern brewing traditions . Driven by their desire for a more delectable beverage, the monks worked continuously to improve their methods and some even went so far as to offer forgiveness to the faithful in exchange for beer recipes . There are now only seven Trappist monasteries producing beer. It is in their honor and in memory of the many monks who developed and enjoyed these types of beer over the centuries that we have created this divine nectar. Assoifé – 8 is a Belgian-style Dubbel that presents malted notes of dried fruit, accented with a subtle hint of molasses and toasted hazelnuts, ending with a slightly sweet and slightly bitter finish.

LBarouf (127) - Ontario, - NOV 17, 2012
341ml bottle
Appearance : Clear dark amber with medium head. Light lacing.
Aroma : Light belgian yeast with light caramel. Light nutty notes. Some red fruits. Interesting fruits. Light hops too. A bit spicy
Taste : Yeast with red fruits. Some brown sugar. Spicy and nutty.
Palate Finish is spicy with notes of cinnamon. Light bitterness, not much sugar. Carbonation quite soft which isn’t exactly to style. Well maybe not soft but is starts pickly and quickly fades. Not sure this is bottle conditioned. Light banana bread on finish...
Overall : Not bad. Nose slightly better than taste. Would have liked a little bit more residual sugar and a fluffier carbonation. Quite drinkable and rather complex especially considering the low abv. Quite clean and well brewed. I think finish is a bit too bitter for the style (probably due to the lack of residual sweetness).

Bendrixian (1492) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2016
Dark brown pour. Belgian yeast, caramel, brown sugar and some nutmeg.m2dium bodied. Drier than expected sporting a fairly watery mid palate. More disappointing than expected given the aroma.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2016
341ml Bottle. Deep mahogany in colour with a thin off-white head, light lacing. The aroma is of caramel, dark fruits, some brown sugar, bready. Flavour is of light roasted malts, dark fruits, plums, some spice. Warming mouthfeel, medium/light body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, quite bitter with a fair amount of alcohol burn. Not what I was expecting. Lacking the body of other Dubbels, sweetness of the aroma doesn’t carry over to the flavour. Just ok.

matbigrey (114) - Mascouche, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 22, 2015
341ml Bottle. Dark ginger clear color with a beige head. Aromas of amber malts, candi sugar and notes of roasted wheat if I’m not mistaken. taste is based on cereals, not too thick, not too dry. Roasty yet not agressive. I do not detect any hazelnut as described on the label but if it’s there, it’s very subtle. Not very hoppy but that’s not what I was expecting from it. finale is somewhat dry and sweet. I like it but was expecting more because I don’t really feel the yeasty belgian signature I was looking for.

AleRider78 (682) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2015
Nice! Pours a dark brown colour with a light brown coloured foamy head that sticks around till the midway point. Fair carbonation. Good clean mouthfeel, not much of a bitter aftertaste, as was expecting. Aromas of coffee grinds, caramel, malts. Flavours of dark roasted malts, coffee, molasses, spices. Easy going down. Reasonably priced and can be purchased individually (not having to buy six pack).

Bottle from Halles St-Jean. Aroma: dark fruits, caramel, floral. App: clear brown reddish, small beige head. Taste and palate: medium to full body, medium sweetness, fruity dry finish. Overall: good surprise, maybe because I wasn?t expecting much but ended up really liking it. Quite easy to drink.

Beardbeerman (339) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 15, 2015
Pours a hazy brown sporting a deep amber hue, topped by a finger of fizzy/creamy tanned head. Retention is moderate and fine lacing remains as the head sets. The nose is sweet, milk chocolate, hazelnuts, dark fruits. The taste is milk chocolate paired with roasted nuts. Sesame seeds. Very liquourish but not boozy. Carbonation is not really present on the tongue. Finishes long, nutty, earthy and moderately bitter. Very good beer to pair with your favorite decadent dessert. Cheers!

HippyHop (605) - Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2014
This is a weird one. The pour is beautiful: great dark caramel colour, good retention, decent lacing. The nose is less impressive. There’s some sweet fruit, caramel, a bit of roasted grain, but also a lot of what smells like overripe banana and rubbing alcohol. Taste was totally unexpected. Toasted grain and nuts, maybe some chocolate, molasses and a surprisingly bitter, hoppy finish. There’s a surprising lack of sweetness here too. Other than the rubbing alcohol/rotten banana scent it’s actually pretty tasty stuff, but calling it an abbey dubbel seems dubious to me.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4661) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 12, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. It pours a deep red and I got a bit of raspberry in the nose, the taste is dark molasses, sweet pepper, fruits, bready Belgian style goodness.
