4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Wow, this is a flavorful beer! With a dark hazy brown color and a slightly sour smell it has a rich and a vibrant flavor with grainy aspects and a full body. IT lingers for a while and leaves you coming back for more. One of the best of the best, after all it is a Belgian beer....

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a deep opaque brown with a thin cream head leaving sheet lacing. The nose is raisins and caramel. The taste is the same with a full body. Although it has more structure and flavor profile than the Pater 6, the initial impression was that there would be more depth. 11.2 oz bottle in a variety pack with a best by date of 8/24/17.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
An outstanding beer, IMHO almost as fine as Westvleteren 8, the best in the world. I have sampled many times at home and keep a couple of cases for aging; at a bar in Brugges; at a bar in Brussels; mostly in 330s but also in 750s. Warm, attractive nose with caramel, chocolate, fudge, malt, walnutes, herbs. Perfect head which is white as the driven snow. A very smooth presentation, goes down nicely but it has not the incredible smoothness of Westy. Lasts and lasts.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
11.2 oz. bottle from The Hop Yard, Raleigh, NC. Brown pour with a foamy light beige head. Aroma of green raisin, candi sugar, and dark fruit. Taste is sweet, but not too sweet, offering a strong malt profile but enough fruitiness to keep this from becoming overly sugary. Moderate warmth. As close to perfect of an example of a dubbel as you could possibly find.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark hazy ruby-brown with a large foamy off-white head. Floral aromas, Belgian yeast, plum, date, and cherry on the nose. Has a nice full body with a slightly chewy mouthfeel. There’s a nice amount of sweetness, but not overly so. A sort of dry cherry flavor is present along with that familiar St. Bernardus/Belgian yeast flavor.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a dark brownish producing a creamy, tan head. Aroma of malts, dried fruits, coriander and hints of banana and yeasty esters. Taste is very well balanced. Moderate fruity, well rounded sweetness and a slight bitter touch finishing it off. A slight alcoholic warmth as well. Body is full with an almost thick texture. Co2 levels are high as is usual for the style. Very nice stuff.
