(Tap) Had at the International Beer Fest in Hamburg, Germany. Pours tan/brown with a tan head. Smells overly sweet, but the taste was balanced very well. Caramel and toffee notes were predominent. Aftertaste was a little on the sweet side. Overall one of my favorites of the fest.

#16 on the 2006 Europe tour--Dark brown beer with a frothy head. The aroma was of caramel and yeast. The taste was of malt, caramel and a sweet finish.

Bottle at St. Louis Microfest - Dark copper pour with a huge head because the dumbass pouring the beer had no clue how to pour Abbey ales. It did result in a nice looking lacing effect. Aroma had rich caramel malt & earthy yeast - a bit of toffee is noticeable as well. Taste has a lot of what was on the aroma, but it was cloying and sugary sweet. Finish continues with the sugary sweetness and some dark fruits. Pretty much just a fair dubbel.

sethdude (699) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 20, 2006
Pours a rich, style-correct reddish-amber with a medium lacy head. Aroma is apple, slight cherry, an extremely faint lambic funk, and sweet molasses. Flavor is full and fruity, fairly correct for the style, though these malts seem somewhat stale and cheap. Hops come in in the back half and do a good job of accompanying the banana and cinnamon notes. Not bad, but not a strong example of the style either.

mjg74 (2492) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 14, 2006
Bottled. Pours a deep ruby color. Roasty dark fruity aroma. Slightly sweet right up front. Has a slightly bitter roasted dark fruit flavor. Slighty sweet and somewhat vinous finish.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2006
Nice dark red/brown coloured brew. Aroma is a bit fruity and malty. Flavour is sweet, a lot like brown sugar. Overal a bit too sweet, but still enjoyable.

Sten (636) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - MAY 6, 2006
A dark brow beer with a slightly brownisch head. A very good sweet and fruity aroma. The flavour is not really my thing. Way to sweet. (Bottle 33cl)
