Pours a dark brown color with a big head. Interesting aroma... almost apple-ish? Tasting... hot damn, it is apple! In a dubbel! Coupled up with slight malt and spice character, this is a winning beer!

amazing head that stood an inch outside the glass. "Notes of raisin" were a little too much for my taste but i loved the chocolate aftertaste. I would like to try aging this one.

I first heard about this beer when I was reading "Get Fuzzy" when Rob Wilco was balancing one on his stomach while drunk. I wondered if it is real. Lo and behold, it is! So I found some, and I was amazed!!! It tastes so much like the sparkling grape juice I drank as a kid, only better! The creamy head, the pretty color, and the sweet taste...this beer is awesome! I want to try the pale ale!

750ml bottle: Just as I removed the metallic protection piece on top of the cork and went to get a glass, the cork popped out and beer started to poured from the bottle – this is already an exciting beer. Quickly poured a glass of dark and hazy brown beer with huge foamy head with excellent retention. Aroma is mostly comprised of spices with some subtle notes of malt and yeast. Taste is more spicy then what I’m used for an Abbey Dubbel but I still very much enjoyed that one, I would have appreciated a bit more roastiness though. Carbonation is perfect and body is above average.

deep brown ale, lots of beige head that fizzes away quickly. awesome aroma of candy and brown sugar, some yeast and spice, some cider notes. flavor hints at raisin and chocolate, some alcohol. really enjoyable beer!

Bottle. pours a cloudy dark brown with a fat off white heads that surrenders like the French. alcohol and apple are dominant in the nose. very tart taste of fruit yeast dough and assorted spices. I am going to pick up a few of these to cellar to get a better handle on but i have to go with what i have at this point. this is very warming. finish is a sweet fruit and pepper with a solid malt backbone. I look forward to experiencing the aged versions of this.

Pours hazy brown with a thick white head...smells fruity and yeasty...tastes as you would expect...earthy, dark fruits...chocolately and port...good, but not outstanding...
