3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Belgian yest aroma with dark fruits and sour notes. Dark brown with light head. Taste is traditional abby style but somewhat flat. Easy to drink for a dark beer. Better than average but not amazing

"A nice little beer for a good price, but not really a standout in the dubbel style. cloudy light brown, nice feel and fruity-malty-yeasty flavor and aroma, but nothing that wows."

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
~Rich malty aroma of raisin, prune, caramel, bread, and alcohol. Clovey peppery spice from the yeast.
~ Pours a ruby amberish color with small wispy white head.
~Prune in flavor with raisin and carmel, spice and alcohol.
~medium light bodied with medium low CO2, lingering sweetness.
~ It’s ok. Was expecting more from a dubbel. feels a bit thin and isn’t all that interesting. Still drinkable and enjoyable

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz Bottle poured into a Corsendonk badged stemmed tulip on 14th July 2014 in Orange County while on holiday. Looked fine a red hue to the brown body, the head a nun staying off white colour. Fairly malty nose and taste bordering on sweet. The body seemed a little thin for the alcohol, but it suited the beer. Overall not bad, but a long way from what I am used too when I have a proper Belgian Abbey Dubbel.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Malty, sweet, and malty. Way too sweet for my taste. Has body but is flat and boring.
