COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Abbey beer, ruby colour, top-fermentation beer, outstanding owing to its soft flavour and fantastic aroma. This beer’s name comes from the French Capuchins, who had a monastery in Budel at the beginning of the last century.

Donkere chocoladebruine kleur met goede schuimkraag. Ruikt zoetig en een beetje fruitig, grapefruit. Smaakt veels te zoet. Tonen van caramel en iets frutig.

Abijen (1422) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2013
Pours a nice dark red beer with a not very long lasting head. Smells quite good. A little bit sour and fish. Salty. The taste is not so nice. Strange ingredient.

WheatKing (1290) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 31, 2013
Pours very dark brown, beige head. Nose is a lot of chocolate, malt, cola. Flavour is similar, subtle malt, a lot of esters, somewhat phenolic, caramel. This is probably the subtlest dubbel I’ve ever had. I’m really taking a liking to it though, it’s very sessionable. No overpowering molasses flavour. 3/4 dubbel, 1/4 porter.

Mahogany brown colour with thin but well maintained head. Taste has a sticky sweetness on the lips. Quite fruity.

Douberd (2189) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - FEB 6, 2013
300 ml bottle, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 6.5% Three fingers of off-white, sopay head, with very good retention, especially after it loses its initial half size. Heavy lacing left behind. Colour of the beer itself is a very dark mohogany brown. Impressive. Sweet aroma of roasted malts and lots of caramel and at the same time a bit sour, of stewed dark fruits. Taste is sweet at first and fruity. Lots of the roasted malts here too, along with fruits, becomes a very pleasant light bitterness, with delicious choclate notes. Full body, as much carbonation as needed and sort of sticky on the palate. Pleasantly surprised with this one, a truly delicious beer, although I am sure many will find it too sweet.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 14, 2013
Bouteille 330ml. De couleur brune et claire. Nez de caramel toffee légèrement rôti, moyennement fruité (raisins, prunes, notes de dates) avec des notes de mélasse et de sucre brun. Moyenne en bouche avec une texture huileuse. Goût fruité sucré (prunes, raisins, traces de petits fruits rouges) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi rapidement d’un goût de caramel légèrement rôti et aux faibles traces terreuses avec des notes de sucre brun puis en finale, une très légère amertume de houblon herbeux s’installe avec des traces d’alcool. Post-goût moyen, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux avec un léger goût fruité (pelures de prunes, traces de raisins vineux).

The head is medium, the body brown-red. It smells sprit, alcoholic, malty. The taste is malty, hoppy, malty-alcoholic, a bit strange. Ok 11/11/10/10/11/10
