Tåget orangegylden med et stabilt cremefarvet skum. Duft med maltsødme, mørke malt og en svag antydning af belgisk gær. Smagen er gyldig af malt og lidt chokoladeagtigt. Mørk malt er tydelig og medspiller i en markant men difus bitterhed, der hurtigt forsvinder i en kort eftersmag. Ikke nogen stor trappist men ok.

Pours a dark coppery Amber with a very thick and fluffy buff head. (The damn gnats that have been plaguing me for days sure like it!) Strong, fruity aroma has notes of pear, Apple and banana, plus caramel and sharp alcohol hints. Bold, fruity flavor pleases with apple, pear, bready, caramel, and subtle banana and nuty tones. Texture is smooth and fairly fizzy, if a little thin. Those lucky monks!

A decent Belgish Ale with a very nice color. It has a bit too much of an alcohol taste

Bottle - Malty notes, stone fruit and some raisin. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. Lots of fruity esters, stone fruit, plum and some sugars. A little bitterness and booze in the finish. Not bad.

Good dark beer, great taste. The palate may appear to be a little bit pasty, but very good in the end.

Off-white lasting big head, deep orange slightly hazy. Nose is sweet, spicy, honey. Carbonation soft. Light bitterness. Not too complicated. Pleasant but not very lasting taste wise.

Transfer from BA review on 6-19-13-
Poured from bottle into a chalice glass
Appearance – The beer pours a hazy and murky brownish amber color with a one finger tan colored head. The head has a decent retention, fading over time to leave a lighter level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell- The aroma is of fruit and biscuit with lots of cherry and plum. Along with these smells other aromas of a honey and a decent presence of a yeasty aroma bringing with it spice of coriander, pepper and clove.
Taste –The taste begins with a biscuit malt flavor mixed with darker fruits of cherry and plum. Unlike in the nose not much honey was detected in the taste, but instead the sweetness came largely from the fruit flavors. More toward the middle a tartness and yeastiness began developing on the tongue along with some spice of coriander. These flavors take the taste to its end where the tart and more tart flavors get more potent leaving a biscuit and fruity tart flavor to linger in the mouth.
Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the thicker and chewier side with a carbonation level that is on the average side. For the tart flavors of the brew a slightly thinner body may have been slightly more appropriate although the medium carbonation level was a nice balancer of the tart and the biscuit flavors that were simultaneously present at the end.
Overall – An alright dubbel but nothing too out of the ordinary here in my opinion.
