aroma is very special. It has a certain earthy, outdoor feel to it. The beer is high on carbonation, taste is dry, spicy, earthy and a little sour...

Wonderful easy to find abbey ale. I haven't had this in a while, but i really rather enjoyed this. Very fruity and raisiny with some notes of chocolate. All I really remember is being delightfully surprised. Must drink out of a Corsendonk glass (and not the one of the left there, a more goblety one)

very distinctive aroma of molasses; dark brown with a huge tan head; the taste was not at all like the smell - in fact, it's slightly sour

The aroma of this beer is interesting, a touch of fruit, a little bit of something sweet. The color is something between caramel and milk chocolate. The flavor is nutty, chocolatey, and fruity. In my mind this is a great example of a dubbel.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Murky tan/brown liquid with a light tan head. Aromas of dates, raisins, oranges, brown sugar and toffee. Spritzy feel. Wine like acidity cut through most of the flavors. Apples and raisin with only hints of malt. There is a late toasty malt finish, but to thin in the middle. A cross between a flemish red and a dubbel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark vibrant ruby color, with a continous head building on top. Smells of yeast and of some berry notes too. The beer just feels a little too carbonated. Has a seltzerish mouthfeel to it at first, I guess it needs to settle more than usual. Still has a nice taste to it.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slight metallic aroma. Creamy head that never dies. Creamy smooth palate that finishes watery. Yeast and fruit flavor with a licorice aftertaste.
