33 cL bottle. Pours dark murky brown with huge creamy light brown to slight grey head. Vague aroma, slight malty roasted with some minor fruity yeast notes. Sweet malty flavour with fruity yeast notes. Softly lingering into a slight bitter finish.

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.
