Pours brown with a good white head. Has that Belgian spciiness to it with hints of raisons. Slightly floral. Not overwhelming like some Belgians. I enjoyed it.

As the commercial description states this has a fruity/yeasty aroma. Initial flavor is raisins and herbs. Thinner body than I expected but quite nice.

Incredible. Smell fruity yet slightly smokey. Tastes of rasins and chocolate. One of the best beers I have ever had

HarmonKill-a-Brew (407) - Wilmar, Arkansas, USA - JUL 1, 2004
Aroma was fruity... kind of sweet and sour at the same time. Also a slight hint of chocolate. Appearance was wonderful... looked like dark muddy water. Flavor was of dirt, chocolate, fruit, and yeast. Mouthfeel was a bit thin. Good beer.

rhapsouldize (174) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2004
Pours a mahogany color with foamy light tan head. Aroma of citrusy fruit and wine. Very dry...almost the dryness of Orval. Sharp citrus flavor that reminds me a whole lot of wine. Overall, definitely a delicious beer.

skaughty (652) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 20, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2004 Re-rateSecond tastig on draft was much improved (Strange for a Belgian). There was a hint of blood in the taste, but in a good way. Almost as if it was fortified with minerals. (No i'm not a vampire). <P> This is a pretty simple one - if you can get past the old (musty, sweaty) elements of the aroma - you have a wonderful beer. It pours beautifully, with a rich, dark head. The flavor is significantly "darker" than most dubbels, almost like a smoky Westmalle. The finish is creamy and a touch spicy.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2004
Reddish brown in color with good head. Aroma was intriguing. Fruit and malt in a curious way. Mouthfeel was smooth and pleasant. Flavor was full, sweet and tart, raisins. Not bad.

Pours a dark mahogany brown with a puffy light tan head. Sweet caramel and Belgian yeasty aroma has a touch of earthy maltiness and light fruit. Starts with a sweet caramel toffee body and a fresh yeasty flavor hinting at tartness toward the finish. Full, smooth and tasty, a vice nice Abbey Dubbel that’s hides its alcohol well.
