Chocolate colour with red hints when held to the light. A good reddish creamy head that fades soon, leaving some lace.Aroma is cherries, vanilla, dark fruits. Do I detect some tobacco? Sour flavor, taste of cherries, flowers, vanilla 3essence, dry and sour.

(33cl bottle). Dark brown beer with a big light brown head. Sweet, roasted, slightly fruity, and medium bitter. Nice but not great.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - SEP 11, 2007
Bottle, 33cl. Pours a nice dark brown color, with lightbroen head. The arome is fruity and spicy. Flavor is a little disapointing, could be more rich. The flavor is spicy and leaves the mouth pretty quick. Overall it is a good but nor impressing beer.

Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2007 Pours with a creamy, foamy head and looks rich. Suspended yeast signals the potentially nourishing qualities of the beer. Aroma is complex, spicy. Cinammon is most pronounced, but so is some currant, clove, cardamom, and chicory. These aromas carry over into the full-flavored abbey dubbel. It’s smooth and balanced in spite of the spiciness. The Floreffe dubbel leaves a strange bittery aftertaste of orange peel that is not offensive but not particularly pleasant either. The back of the throat senses sharp spice like ginger sensation. This is fairly highly carbonated beer too, which serves to usher the flavors into the mouth. A little salty too. Big yet mild.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - AUG 20, 2007
Bottiglia da 33cl comprata in enoteca a Brignole; colore rosso intenso scurissimo, schiuma leggera (beige) ma persistente e cremosa. Aroma intenso, asprigno ma delicato; sapore speziato e dolcissimo (punte di cioccolato fondente) con finale non molto amaro ma piacevole. Retrogusto evanescente, nel suo fortemente cioccolatoso con qualche erba aromatica. Molto buona! Tra le migliori dubbel assaggiate finora.

[Sampled in 2004.] Huge head and dark brown color. Sweet ad not so much bitterness as some others. Fruit, roast and alcohol and mediumbodied with a nice sweet finish.

ChrisThomson (522) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2007
Brussels-07. Very dark brown almost black colour with one finger of tan head. Aromas of caramel, plums, malt, chocolate and raisins. Sweet flavour with notes of caramel, fruit, roasty malts and finishing with plums. Medium body, low carbonation with a short finish. Nice abbey Dubbel.

KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2007
This beer pours a dark brown with a large tan head. The nose is typical for a sweet Belgian abbey beer--sugary and somewhat flowery--and the mouthfeel is silky and somewhat syrupy, though it isn’t overbearing. The cane sugar with which this beer is brewed really comes forward to provide a taste reminiscent of sugard-coated, roasted nuts on top of the light hop floweriness and creamy-sweet malts. This is a very good Belgian, but like most of them (except Orval) it suffers from weak hops and too much sugary sweetness.

A gift from my son. The color is a nice dark brown with a thick beige head. The taste is sweet and spicy not tart. The aroma is a nice sweet smell. A good Abbey Dubbel, but not the best.
