COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brown ale inspired by the beer brewed by Belgian Trappist monks. Very little bitterness, this beer has malty and sweet flavours, mixed with the taste of chocolate and caramel. It presents complex red fruit and spice flavours due to the type of yeast that is used during the brewing process.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2003 I expected a lot, but as MartinT pointed me out, it's far from a typical dubbel and I'm happy not to see it in that style on the site database. It's basically dark brown with very fugacious head, well-laced nevertheless. Neglectable carbonation. The nose reminds of chocolate milk. Weird malt taste.. I don't know how to qualify it, flat malt comes to mind. The texture reminds of coke, somewhat powdery, but very smooth and sliding on the tongue. Overly sweet and definitely not one that impressed me.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2003 08-Oct-03: Rigor Mortis double Biere d'Abbaye #20 (7.5%) April 2002 Bottle-conditioned. Fruity sweet malty aroma. Dark brown with red tones. Finger of tan head that recedes quickly with very good lacing. Malty, candy-sugar sweet flavour with some nuttiness and a slight earthiness in the finish with final alcohol on the tongue. Smooth mouthfeel. This is a dangerously easy-drinking beer. 21-Sep-03: 5-3-7-5-16-3.6 Big aroma - malty with something funky in there... Definitely odd although not necessarily bad. Beautiful deep brown colour with a finger of head of tight small dense bubbles. Some lacing. Good malt flavour roasted malts initially apparent rounded out by asweet caramel flavour with a touch of alcohol warming in the finish. Mouthfeel of this beer is absolutely fantastic. It just slides easily across the palate and eases down the throat. A pleasure to drink. Definitely a beer I would have again (and again) but there's something about that aroma I'm not quite sure about... On tap.

Deep brown colour, nice beige head, shy sweet aroma of chocolate and red berries. Big malty flavor, roastiness upfront, pretty sweet, some bitter chocolate, a touch of alcohol and an illusion of smoke in the finish.

Deep amber in color with a nice tan head.Small fine bubbles.Aroma is malty,yeast/bready with a touch of fruit esters.A much different approach than most doubles but I enjoyed it.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2003
Dark brown. Substantial tan head. Aroma of dark fruit, berries, chocolate, & band-aid. Full bodied. Flavour is quite malty (caramel) w/ a yeasty, fruity quality. Alcohol comes through quite strongly in the finish.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2003
Brown in colour. Aroma of caramel, malt, chocolate and yeast. Flavour of dark chocolate, meadium bitterness, berries, yeast. Finishes with a lingering medium bitterness. As Martin said, this is slightly cloying.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2004 Caramel malt with sweet berries…Flemish Sour undertones, but not enough to be a real oud bruin...Cloying for a dubbel(?!)…
