Very nice nose of raisins and spice. Looks great - Ruby mahogany in the glass with a strong creamy head. Taste is a great balance between freshly thirstquenching and the traditional abbey complexity. I like it a lot.

GREAT. The malty flavor is accented by a sweet, smooth aftertaste. Its so creamy and malty for a dubbel, I was very very pleasantly surprised. A new favorite for sure

Now one of my favourites - malty flavor is accented by a sweet, smooth aftertaste. Creamy and malty - great body - not bitter - tastes great straight from bottle also

From a dwarf sized 12 fl. oz bottle marked: 1502QL0465A. Pours a very dark brown with a little bit of ruby red when held to the light. Creamy, beige head that stays for the entire session. Aroma of malts, hops, and nuts. The taste is extremely sweet like honey, caramel, or sugar. Yummy! I liked this one a whole lot.

Warm, creamy, sweet, malt and chocolate at the same time. Sweet like sugar. On tap at Cafe Hollander in Milwaukee.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2011 Bottle in Tolosa. Masterpiece. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, butter, dark fruit, and apple. Taste is sweet and bitter, with long length. Palate is syrupy, and full bodied. Dark brown, with a frothy head. Previous rating: 2009 Tap. It’s good, but not the best dubbel I had. Caramel in the aroma, and a sweet flavour with lingering bitterness. It’s thin and watery in the palate. Dark red colour, with a white and long-lasting head.

Lovely dubbel, dark bitter sweet, fresh & fruity, liked it very much. Same quality as the more famous blonde.

ExpendableHero (774) - Florida, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Hazy copper/brown beer with an off-white head. Aromas of toffee, caramel, and candy sugars mixed with fruit. Tastes of Belgian candy sugars, some toffee, sweet caramel, even some honey, and dark fruits. Earthy flavors are there as well mixing with sweet boozy goodness. Finish is boozy sweet and somewhat fruity. The alcohol warms and develops the other flavors quite nicely. Easy to drink and enjoy. What an awesome beer.
