Very dark red, healty head. Sharp winey and sour aroma, some alcohol, maybe medicianl. Sweet alcoholic with medicine-like maraschino cherries and marzipan. Not sophisticated at all.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beast pours a beautiful chocolate brown w/ a huge rocky froth. Head retention is superb as it finally reduces to a clump of cream and a thick, fluffy, sticky ring. Nice! Aromas of spiced dark fruits and bitters. Medium nectar weight w/ ample residual effers that are soft like cotton. Strongly flavored, this brew is spicey and only mildy sweet. Angostora bitters upfront w/ ginger, dried rose petals, citrus rind, and rusted metal. Other nuances of wet tree bark, leather, bitter stems and herbs, cherry, nectarine. As it warms a tartness appears w/ some mild cola flavors. The finish is bittered well leaving enough heavy spices to linger you could fill a spice rack. Overall: Iíve had Dubbels and Iíve had Dubbels and this one fits in nicely. Good scores on all components reveals a great new brewfor the celiacís. Itís way under-rated.

Mahogany with a nice, large head. The aroma has notes of vegetables and malt, and the veggies are found in the flavour too (celery), but also candy sugar, roasted malt, sweetness, syrup, cikory and a tart finish. The body is light and itís way too sweet. Thanks Yngwie!

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Smells as a mix of vodka and octoberfest beer. Tastes better. With the price of $6 per 17 oz would avoid at all costs. You can find a LOT of Belgian beers in this price range to be much much better then Greenís
This beer should be banned from the States. Enough said - and do not try it.

Is this an abbey dubbel? Dark, quite sweet with some malt and caramel, but very low esters. Drinkable but boring.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A Sim rate (RBESG tasting): Hard liquor aroma. Almost offensive, but bittersweet. So brightly red and black with a nice lacing. Flavour again is too too bitter.

Bottle from pechams. Aroma is sweet candy sugar, yeasty molasses and hints of fresh spice, corriander maybe. Taste is a similar bag of tricks thin boy but very dirnkable. The best yet from greens.
