Dark brown color. Mild aroma, quite typical Belgian, some caramel and some esters from the yeast. The flavor has some caramel, light yeast fruitness, but a bit poor overall.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bruges-07. I tried this one right at the brewery in Bruges. Nutty receding head with some hints of caramel and roasted malt. I found it better than their blonde, but still nothing special.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gorgeous beige head stays over the cloudy russet body forever. Active carbonation ensures a healthy mouthfeel with a solid bite. Toasted munich malts dominate the flavour with their very nutty, bready, creamy caramel flavours. Well integrated throughout, deploying an interesting floral, saazy? bitterness punctuated with flowery nuances. So the balance is excellent, but the richness does not reach the same excellence.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap in the brewery in Brugge (It’s amazing how much brewery fresh beer tastes). Nutty receding head with some hints of caramel and roasted malt. I found it better than the blonde offering.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled (BB 10/2009)
Dark nut brown color, big beige head. Metallic, roasted and nutty aroma, hints of cold coffee. Crisp mouthfeel. Caramelly (brown sugar) flavor in the light palate. Tiny shade of spices, lots of caramel malts. Some bitterness and alcohol in the aftertaste. Quite typical middle-of-the-road abbey dubbel, no big faults but not very interesting either.
