Bamsen78 (3225) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2014
Bottle @ Craenenburg, Brugge. Pours clear dark ruby / copper brown with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of caramel malt, fruit and yeast. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt, with fruity and estery notes, complemented by bitter touches of hops. Bitter, slightly nutty aftertaste with touches of yeast. Decent.

chinchill (1955) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 14, 2014
On nitro tap at the Porter Bar (ATL). Served in Brugse Zot stemware. Dark fruit and a hint of wood in the nose. Flavor. Rich and complex. Mostly dark fruits and light spices. Sweet and bitter in about equal measure with a subtle tartness too. O: nearly on par with Westmalle?

eduardovl (865) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle served in a shifter glass. A: Pours a beautiful deep amber clear color forming a big yellow to beige head. Good retention and some spotty lacings left. A thin layer remains for long time on the top S: Sweet, fruity and spicy. Dark fruits, mint, black pepper and caramel. Bready Belgian yeasts T: Follows the nose. A sweet fruity a candy sugar upfront followed by notes of caramel malts, black pepper, earthly yeasts. Mild pleasant hoppy bitterness in the end M: Medium molasses body with good carbonation. Grainy and slightly bitter aftertaste O: Easy drinking beer. Strong Belgian character. Recommended [ BA Review @ 11/30/2012 ]

Decent beer. Definitely better in bruges ... Brown in appearance with a heavy head. Think taste with Carmel flavor

Zymurgeist2 (1051) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 19, 2014
At the brewery in Brugge after the canal tour. Nice, hazy brown with large head (tan). Aroma of subtle malt, cracker and melonoidin. Taste is restrained and thin. Lacks the complexity that i love in a dubbel.

darrennelson12 (415) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2014
AT the brewery; pours a brownish/amber color. Not alot from the aroma. Taste was somewhat sweet, though the alcohol definitely came through on this one. Overall, an OK beer but not nearly there best

rdb84 (114) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2014 Bottle. Pours a slightly red cola colour with strong foam head. Aromas are hearty and sweet, everything is in there: subtle sweetness of kandij (rock candy), triple-like yeast, barley wine, small hints of raisins and cherries. Deep whiff gives off a little salmiak. Very well balanced. Taste is very earthy, sensation resembles liquid whole wheat bread/rye. Salmiak is relatively strong, flows into a nice bitterness with slightly boozy aftertaste. With some of the stronger Trappist beers, you only care for drinking a single one (due to the overwhelming taste). Not this one. Great bear to have all through a hearty winter meal.

triskaideka (144) - Killarney, IRELAND - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle at home - pours copper with off white head. Fruity, yeasty aroma. Taste is of malt and fruit cake.
