COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Launched 1982 by Jef Keersmaekers as Pater Noster. Brewed by Brasserie Du Bocq since launch.
Ingredients: Caramel, Pilsen and Munich barley malts, and Saaz, Kent and Hallertau hops

Bottle. Deep cloudy brown with off-white head. Aroma is sweet malt and fruity, but you can smell the yeasty alcohol. Taste is smooth and warming with hints of raison, fig, and chocolate. Damn this is good.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - DEC 27, 2003
Pours a nice dark reddish-brown. Sweet tangy aroma, very fruity. A sour flavor followed by a port aftertaste. This beer has aged quite well with the collage of flavors on the palate. I think a nice choice for a after Xmas beer.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 25, 2003
Bottle pours a red brown color with a monster head and good lace. Aroma consists of yeast. The flavor is quite yeasty and malty. The palate is fairly moderate. Overall, another good Abbey Dubbel, but not as good as some others.

BeerandBlues2 (10606) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 24, 2003
Pours brown with a large tan and frothy head. Strong fruity and yeasty aroma. Slightly acidic but otherwise fruity with notes of raisins and wine. Light on the palate and does not linger.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2003 Brown colored with an amber hue and almost clear. Initial head is frothy and tan but settles down to a thin layer that is dense and creamy. Aroma of sweet malt and chocolate with a hint of dried fruit and alcohol. Also a bit yeasty which is very nice. Mouthfeel is effervescent and a smooth medium body. Flavor is mostly a chocolate one with notes of raisins and figs. Overall one of the better Dubbels I've had.

On draught. Nice brown body and a creamy beige head. Chocolate and malt nose. Chocolate, nut and fruit flavor. Smooth and well balanced!

SteC (140) - Oostende, BELGIUM - DEC 10, 2003
This is one of the better in it's kind. Maybe the fact that this bottle had stood in my closet for a year had something to do with it. The head is nice, but not extraordinary, it remains quite long, but the bubbles are big. It had a fenomenal aroma, wich I liked. The taste has initial choclate in it, later more sweet (honey) and with a bitter, dry aftertaste.

rudolf (2342) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 7, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2006 Re-rate 8/06 Deep ruby/copper body. Light tan head. Nose is plenty of plum, fruit, chocolate, mint, dark caramel, earthy malt, fruit. Flavor is slightly cherry, some caramel, mint, yeast. Not as complex as I recall. Dry oakey caramel/yeast finish. A bit thin Original rate: 9/5/9/4/19 Nice head - I can see the individual bubbles. Rich brown appearance. The first thing I thought of when I smelled this was peanut butter. Malt hits the tounge first, then brown sugar. Id like a bit more chewiness in this but its still great stuff.
