travita (4233) - Frisco, Texas, USA - FEB 10, 2008
Dark reddish brown in color with a pretty decent head. Aromas have strong fruit and spiced smells. That continues into the flavors and contributes to a nice taste. Sweet finish with a pleasant amount of alcohol warmth.

Clear dark reddish brown color, medium sized tan head. Acidic, wood and red wine scent, a bit dry and sweet. Sweet and spicy, caramel taste. Sweet aftertaste. Scent and taste is very different. When I first semled I thought "this will taste like Duchesse de Bourgogne" but it sure didn’t. Moussy mouthfeel, low bitterness. Some chocolate in the back.

armando629 (2433) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 13, 2008
dark brown beer, huge, stable beige head with spicy-creamy nose. In the taste are the candy-sugar, some chocolate, the roasted malts-like coffe taste, caramel, nuts and fruits. Carbonation is moderated, the high percentage of alcohol is unobtrusive. Nice aftertaste with roasted malt. Good, balanced and complex beer wich beer is not so expensive. Thanks Lefebvre! You can buy it in the hungarian Match.

KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2008
Dark brown with good off white head. Sweet malty aroma with overripe fruits, spices and chocolate. Flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, chocolate, toffee and fruits. Like a good dessert. Lovely.

I was, earlier today, tired of big hops. This has been a pleasant interlude. Not mouth heavy, which I routinely like, but floating on the palate. The star anice and orange peel have an early nice taste. This disappears as it warms. It pours a lovely brown, maintains nice lacing, and is thoroughly enjoyable.

iep (230) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2007
Dense and fruity. Concentrated aroma’s of plums, dried apricot and palm sugar. Caramel, bread, and pears on the palate. Nice and heavy. Not much CO2, full-bodied;. Thick and layered!

BBB63 (6299) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 20, 2007
11.2 oz bottle and served in my NB Worthy glass. A deep brown hue with a foamy off-white head that left very good lace upon the glassware. The aroma has notes of Belgian dark sugar, caramel, grape, plum and prune esters, star anise, cardamom, and a hit of lactic acid. The taste starts with a twangy fruit presence over a layer of caramelized malt and candy sugar. There is a yeasty quality in midsection before wandering off towards a muddled and light-spiced ending. The mouth feel is lively and a tad chalky upon the finish. While not has complex or deep as the best of the genre this is still a very drinkable brew.

Cobra (1100) - - NOV 12, 2007
Definitely a dubbel. 750 ml. brown, corked & caged Belgian bottle. No freshness date seen. Loud pop releases the cork. Highly carbonated. Poured out a deep chocolate brown, with some red highlights. Massive, tan colored sticky head clings to the chalice like a drowning man to a life preserver. Big malty aromas, mixed with raisins and dried fruit dominate the aromas. Flavors are of dried fruits, some spices, massive malts, some brown sugar & candied pears. Thick mouthfeel, rich & chewy. Fabulouso! Best Belgian I’ve had in years.

DruncanVeasey (7351) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2007
Deep brown pour swirling with tan froth. Sourish aroma awash with grape, apple, cherry, brown sugar, aniseed and bubblegum. Yeasty, herbal and headily alcoholic as it warms. Silky, sweetish, dubbel-like ale wth sourish fruity touches, chocolatey bready malt and a generous pinch of aniseed.
