Bottle. Wonderful deep red colour with big head. Nice kind of sweet taste, a bit fruity. Too little body though and taste dissapears a bit too quickly. Had better beer of this style.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Amber ruby color with a large beige head and nice lacing. Nose is fruity, malty, yeast, wine, and a bit of raison. On par for the style. Tastes sweet with dark fruits, malt, and a crisp finish. A little caramel sweetness with the maltiness smooths it out. Thank you Jordan for sharing this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark Brown with Red Hue and Sandy Head. Dry Malt, Yeast and Spiced Aroma. Medium Mouthfeel...Nice and Creamy...and Quite Smooth. Wonderful Layers of Malt...Very Aromatic Even While Drinking. Cinnamon, Cloves and Nutmeg Dance On your Tongue While Sweet Dry Malts Do the Lions Share of the Work. Nice Bready Quality to it. Overall Just a Really Drinkable Dubbel.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Luscious dark malt nose, plums with dark fruit, subtle spice, and faint brown sugar. Deep dark dull red body with strong carbonation and an excited tanned head. Sweet taste of dark fruit. Bubblegum and plum. Velvety malt doesn’t match the carbonation, and body is too thin, even for a dubbel. Aftertaste is kinda bland. Very slightly warming. Wow, didn’t think I was going to kill this - it’s good! - but it’s just a little too uninteresting.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled: Beer served too cold, excuse me while I give myself an uppercut. Poured a deep copper with a tan medium head. Quite active carbonation, the aroma featured stewed fruit, plums, brown sugar, grapes and alcohol. Flavour was similar - stone fruit, leather, alcohol up front and a touch of pepper. Balanced by a light bitter finish. Quite nice but not quite up to some of its trappist brothers IMO.
