Stuedmaster (244) - Vista, California, USA - MAY 24, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours dark brown with a small head, no lacing. Very nice aroma of plum, anise, bread, cherries, alcohol, and toffee. Taste is medium sweet with a light bitterness and lightly sour. Very soft on the palate, not highly carbonated, medium body, sticky texture, and sweet finish. This is an above-average Belgian dubbel due to the nice aroma and taste.

ciocanelu (101) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 24, 2014
330 ml bottle, poured into a long tulip glass. Brown color, a bit cloudy. One finger head that reduces to nothing. Smell is dominated by dark, sweet malt. Quite boozy. Taste is on the sweet side with notes of brown sugar and liquorice. Body feels medium and fizzy. Overall it was a decent brew. I wasn’t very impressed but I enjoyed it.

ILduce (209) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2014
Bottle from It’s An Eco Life Inc. (Ontario) unfiltered amber with medium beige head that lasts. Decent carbonation. Smells like dark fruits and caramel malts. Flavours of fig, prune, and dates. Roasted malts and some licorice round it off. Short but pronounced bitter end. Excellent brew from an old recipe.

ruigo (1269) - PORTUGAL - MAR 19, 2014
Shared a 33cl bottle from Cora (Luxembourg). Pours a hazy brown colour with a off-white head. Aroma is deep liquorice, caramel and sweet malts. Average to soft carbonation and medium body. Taste medium sweet and light to medium bitter and a lightly dry finish. Some roasted notes. Overall, a very drinkable beer but a bit too sweet for me.
