rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - MAR 15, 2011
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 11.2oz bottle into a chalice. The bottle has a best before date of 16 04 12. The back label also lists the abv at 8%. Appearance: It has a dark burgundy colored body with a light haze and some yeast floaters. This is capped by a light beige head of frothy light foam. From the pour it left some yeast sediment on top of the head which looks like a dusting of cinnamon. The head hangs on well, slowly fading as I drink and making some nice lacing on the glass. Smell: There are fruity and estery yeast notes of raisins and apple peel with a slight hint of spice and funk. This is all comes with a nice sweet bready maltiness as well. Taste/Palate: Wow, this one has good complexity with fruity and spicy yeast, sweet bready and nutty malts. I get notes of cocoa powder blending with notes of walnuts and hazel nuts like Nutella within the sweet bready maltiness. Fruity notes remind me of raisins and as it warms I get some cherry as well. Hops are light and help to balance with mild bitterness and dryness in the finish. The palate has a solid medium body with mild carbonation. Notes: This beer has wonderful complexity and drinkability.

Big bottle from total wine and spirits with commonmac and rosskyle. Cloudy plum Color with off white head. Sour dark fruit aroma with funkiness. Yeast, dark fruit, slight Belgian yeast and sourness, and fuzzy finish. Fills out their portfolio well even if it’s not as great as the 8, 10, 12.

commonmac (596) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Bottle purchased at Total Wine & Spirits. Poured into Belgian glass. Aroma is kind of a cola, plum/dark fruit. It’s a murky, mahogany/brown color with tan head. Little bit of a funky, yeast or borderline sour quality. Nice round mouthfeel that almost has a velvety characteristic. Malty with dark fruit at the finish. Pretty solid but others in the St. Bernardus family are better.

beeebon (264) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2015
Pours a dark chestnut brown initially with big foamy tan head which quickly goes. Aroma is initially a noticable cola type smell followed by berry type fruits and figs, doughy yeast and cereal malt with a slight herbal presence. Taste is initially sweet then sour and bitter, nicely balanced. Lively carbonation and slick feel. Very nice Abbey Dubbel beer!

Hamirubi (222) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 2, 2015
33cl bottle at home. A mild, even light and good to drink Belgian dubbel. It is a bit of a minor beer in the St. Bernardus series. Yet as a dubbel, a very lovely drink with well balanced sweet bitterness flavours - and of course with the so typical chestnut scents and brown sugar notes.

Butelka, warka do 08-04-16. Bardzo bujna, wysoka, ladna i dosc powoli opadajaca piana, lekko kremowa. samo piwo miedziano-brazowe, lekko metne. Aromaty ciemnych owocow, w tym glownie suszonych (rodzynki), slodowe, lekka przyprawowosc, troche alkoholu, troche karmelu Jednym slowem: dublowo ;) w smaku wiekszosc nut z aromatu jest odczuwalnych (moze poza przyprawami), lekko w slodka strone w miodowy sposob, z deikatnym szczypaniem nieniskiego wysycenia.goryczki wlasciwie brak, jednak "w zamian" czuc troche alkoholu - w nieirytujacy sposob. Niemalo ciala. Bardzo gladkie, kremowe w odczuciu. wyjatkowo "lekkie" w piciu. bardzo dobre piwo, najwyzsza polka dubbli. z 8mka z tego browaru przegrywa w kategorii intensywnosci, zwlaszcza owocowej, ale wygrywa wlasnie ta lekkoscia, pijalnoscia.

Update a propos food-pairing - zupelnie nie pasuje do camamberta - w polaczeniu z nim staje sie kwasne :)
