33 cl. bottle sampled @ Gollem. Murky brown, ruby hue, beige head. Nose is light iron, med. price chocolate, bunch of choco puffs, light dried dark fruits,… Taste is surprising in a great way, creamy with some chocolate milk, choco puffs, mocha, chocolate cereal, creamy dark fruits, touch fake but still great,… Not the fullest body but still creamy,… Surprise but a lovely one.

Vaiz (3560) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2013
Bottle at home. Clear brown pour, thin light brown head. Aroma of brown sugar, ripe fruits, some licorice and slightly dusty. Flavor is bitter, spicy, slightly roasted, some bready yeast and a hint of brandy with alcoholic ripe fruits. Decent dubbel, but very dubbel.

RD400F (200) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 10, 2013
Bottle with best before of June 2013 to Leffe glass.

Aroma: Coffee, rotten fruits, sourness, licorice, raisin...quite a lot going on. A bit of booze detectable.

Appearance: Very dark burgundy with a cream colored head like mousse, looks like there will be lots of lacing.

Taste: A slight bit disappointing considering the aroma’s strength. Strong flavours of liquorice, dark malts, raisin, smoke and dark chocolate.

Palate: Really good, alcohol hidden well, heavy mouthfeel, perfect carbonation, dry finish. The only flaw is a lingering sourness.

Overall: Much better than I expected. Quite nice.

A great satisfying classic Belgium brune. Elegant high class beer. Must try. The fruity aspects of this beer are phenomenal. Plum, prune, pear and peach. Woody, musty, barrel. First rate bitter profile. Carbonation and body are perfect. Top ten for me.

Poured from a bottle. Comes out cloudy medium brown with lots of lacing and a big bubbly head. Aroma of yeast, caramel, and a little metallic. Lightly sweet with cloves, caramel, and some citrus. Light bodied and fizzy with a smooth finish.

tfredvik (1203) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 6, 2012
A light gusher. Clear, dark brown body with a small, frothy, light-brown head that reduces to a thin film very fast (even if it was served in a trappist chalice that usually sustains the head for a very long time). The nose is first of all yeasty metallic. There are some faint dark dried fruits as well that sort of save the aroma from a disaster, but the metallic notes are the dominant. The taste is light to moderate sweet and light bitter. Flavours are tin can, yeast, dark dried fruits and stinging alcohol. The body is quite light and feels watery. Rather lively carbonation, a dry yeasty finish. A big disappointment.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 1 month before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Online]
