Amber/brown in color. Very carbinated tan head that sticks around. A bit sweet, a little chocolate. I really enjoyed this one. Would pick up again for sure. Also could taste the malt in this one.

The official description sounds exactly right. Fruity and slightly smokey, with notes of port, raisins, and sweet dark chocolate. Of course they forgot three words ... sour, sour, and sour. Beautiful reddish brown beer with a huge light brown head. Beer was surprisingly thin in the mouth, given its nose and its appearance.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 (Bottle 25 cl) Hazy brown, almost muddy appearance. Lots of aroma from the malts, extremely aromatic and pleasant. A bit on the dry side for a "Dubbel" making this easier to drink than some of it’s brothers. Has been marketed extensively in recent years, but seems to have maintained all it’s qualities. 020893

Explosive cork that shot off the bottle after I removed the cage. Poured a massive faomy ahead atop the mahogany body. Aroma of rasins and cocoa with a hint of smoke and vanilla. Fruity, notes of plum and pear a very slight touch of smoke. Yeasty finish. Enjoyable.

Beautiful brown, translucent in appearance with a great creamy, fluffy head, leaving nice lacing tracks as we go along. Smells of golden raisins, pepper, anise and apple cinnamon. Flavor is most predominantly pepper, caramel and toffee. Sour red grape aftertaste. Great beer.
