BiereLuc (904) - Montréal, Quebec, - FEB 15, 2013
Yeux : Nettement brune avec des reflets cuivrés alléchants. Une fine mousse teintée crème est amplifiée par une effervescence régulière à petites bulles. Nez : Vapeurs de rousse bien fraîche, comme un complexe inavoué. Le taux d’alcool de cette double typique n’est pas encore révélé. On voudrait présager son goût par ses arômes, mais le secret persiste. Quelques fruits nous viennent en tête, mais en vain… Bouche : Très goûteuse en entrée, la Floreffe révèle son rare taux d’alcool après quelques secondes seulement. Une pincette de cassonade prédomine sur les autres flaveurs. Une amertume soutenable, bien fidèle à la double fermentation, ramène le dégustateur à l’ordre. Gorge : Le doux pétillement s’éteint pour laisser place à un post-goût épicé qui rappelle une bonne Chouffe. Verdict : La Floreffe se laisse boire en douceur. Voilà une brune qui ne fait pas ombrage à la réputation belge. À essayer chambrée, si l’occasion se présente.

presario (4642) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 23, 2014
Left the glass alone and the foam made a mountain on top of the glass. Brown liquid. Sweet dark malt and yeast aroma. Dark malt flavour. Chocolate, coffee, a little toffee and anise. Light dustiness. Sweetish.

RCx240 (47) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 28, 2014
Dark brown in colour, with virtually no head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, raisin, plum, and vanilla. Taste is a sour, citrus tartness, hints of plum and raspberries, followed by notes of toast, roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Fairly light body, thin, with average carbonation and a long lingering finish.

Alengrin (1824) - BELGIUM - AUG 14, 2014
Tasted as Floreffe Double and as Durboyse Brune. Mousse-like, stable, light beige head, colour very dark mahogany brown with ruby hue. Aroma of caramel malts, coffee grounds, dates, iron, aniseed, raisins; malty taste, simple and one-sided, bit metallic, sweetish, smooth mouthfeel, light bitterish aftertaste, hint of roasted bitterness. Totally redundant abbey dubbel.

Ik heb dit zowel in de floreffe-versie gedronken als in de durboyse-versie. Een heel lekker donker bier

Japalo (1176) - DENMARK - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle@home. Very dark reddish. Huge foam. Caramel toffee dark dried fruit. Not mush spicyness. Sweet with some alcoholic mouthfeel. Classic dubbel which makes a monk survive the monastey.

simardsam (137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2014
Brune, avec un bon col de mousse beige. Nez léger sucré, de malt et fruité. Goût légèrement caramélisé, de petits fruits (mûres et raisins) et un peu épicé. L’amertume se fait sentir en bouche et les flaveurs sont subtiles.
