Not bad but not great... Standard Abbey dubbel flavor but nothing to write home about. Head disappears quickly little to no lace.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Beautiful, clear mahogany colour with a small, creamy, beige head that leaves a fine lacing. Lightly spiced aroma with notes of roasted malt. Flavour also contains some roasted malt with a touch of caramel. No real sweetness, this beer is surprisingly dry and in spite of the alcohol it appears rather light and easygoing. 280805

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Clear, dark reddish amber color with a smallish, white and foamy, lacy head. Same aroma as in the gerardus Blond, but with some added caramel. Toffee-malty, caramely flavor with some acidity and roastiness. Medium-bodied, quite foamy-carbonated palate. Quite easy and boring dubbel, but at least it’s not spoiled with excess sugar. Hides the ABV well.
