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 (631) - 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)

grimreeser (797) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Reddish brown color with a pleasing head. Raisin aroma, tasted fruity. I wasn’t especially fond of the aftertaste, but it wasn’t bad.

bb (6851) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 5, 2006
Bottle. Dark ruby-brown beer with a nice light cocoa head. Aroma of rasins, chocolate, yeast and toasted malts. Toffee malt with some fruity esters, prunes, and light spice. Medium bodied. A bit sweet, but not bad.

nick76 (4213) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 5, 2006
The aroma has yeast, raisins, herbs, and dark fruit. The appearance is a clear red brown with a nice foamy head but not overly carbonated. The malt taste has a multi-grain quality along with molasses, raisins, herbs, and prunes. The palate is average. The aftertaste is really the only part I am not fond of; it has an astringent taste to go along with cereal grains. Overall though it’s pretty good.

rederic (2911) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 3, 2006
Sampled at Sunset Grill & Tap in Allston, hazy dark brown hue, with a white head, roasted malt, note of chocolate, and dark fruits in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate, with roasted malt, sweet brown chocolate character, brown sugar, with a nice candied dark fruits of figs, plums, raisins, hint of spiciness, leading towards a lingering pruney finish.

alobar (2765) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2006
Soapy, off-white head with a dark brown color. Aroma was faint, but fruity with some caramel, malts, and yeast. Taste was weak-caramel, molasses, and some alcohol. A bit too carbonated.

TBone (12545) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 29, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2006 Bottled (BB 02/2007)
Dark ruby color, not much head. Yeasty, sugary, fruity aroma with kind of glue-like notes. Starts promising as an abbey dubbel: fruity, enough alcoholic and malty. Unfortunately finishes too quickly and leaves full impression a bit empty. Quality beer it is for sure, for the masses. (7/3/7/3/13 3.3)
Re-rated, bottled [BB 02/2007)
Dark ruby color, decent tan head. Fruity (plums, vigs) aroma, also sweet caramelly with metallic side notes. Notably alcoholic, fruity (raisins), sweet toffeeish. Cellaring of 3-4 years would be interesting. (6/4/7/3/13 3.3)

Bottle 33 cl. Reddish brown colour, white head. Citrus aroma. Yeasty flavour. Good carbonation, okay beer.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2006 Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours brown with a white head. Aroma of yeast, citrus, and caramel. Flavor is smooth, carbonated, citrus. Drinkable.
