Dark red-brown colored with huge light brown head. Spicy and yeasty aroma with dominating hops, flowery amd licoricy notes also present. Interesting aroma with Yankee tones and licorice. Medium bodied. Flavor is more caramelly and flowery with fine hops. Dries with strong American hops and flowers, excellent aftertaste. Slightly unbalanced with strong aftertaste, still excellent beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2013 Bottle at Barley Wine, Copenhagen. Pours dark brown with a foamy, tan head; the head creams up very nicely. Dusty cocoa nose with some dirt. Medium sweet flavor, lightly roasty, with some dark cocoa, toasted leaves, some light caramel and dark, sugary bread, and mild dark fruits. Medium bodied with average to lively carbonation, and it’s creamy, massaging. Mild sticky sweet finish with plenty of dusty cocoa, some light and dirty earthy bitterness. Light a nice, sweet Belgian brown ale. Not as sweet with caramel as a dubbel, though. Good one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Huge light-beige head over very deep-dark ruby beer; some UFO’s end of bottle. Sweet & earthy aromas, liquorice, roasted malts. Again roasted & earthy, peanuts, mild spicy-bitterish malts. Point of saltiness; faintly nutt retronasal. Medium bodied; bit light finish, faint dreamy texture. Light, but pleasing mork öl, less sweet than the nose suggested. Wasn’t the goal an Abbey dubbel?

500 ml bottle @ Gastropub Nordic. BBE 19.9.2011. 7,2% abv.
Pours a dark brown, almost black colour with a foamy, natural white head. Aroma of sweet dark berries and syrup. Flavour of salty licorice, chocolate and sweet decent malts. Belgian yeast is definitely there. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and decent carbonation. Easy to drink. I wouldn’t have guessed this was a Belgian Ale.
