Krasulak (88) - Wapadrand, Pretoria, SOUTH AFRICA - MAR 23, 2006
Bottle 33 cl. Brown hazy with a good off white head. Aroma of brown sugar malt and yeast. Medium sweet, toasted malt and fruityness (plum). Light bodied with light carbonation. Somewhat creamy palate. Finishes sweetly with a touch of bitterness. Not particularly complex but quite good Abbey Dubbel.

Had this on tap at a lovely Irish Pub in Montreal called "Claddagh" (or something like that). It was verry tastey. Lots of character, but very drinkable for a Belgian Abbey Ale.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2006 Bottle, 750ml. A clear dark brown colour with an average lasting head. A room-filling aroma of malt, berries and honey. Perhaps a touch of disinfectant there too... Taste has strong roasted malts, dark chocolate and honey. A somewhat sweet, fairly bitter roasted malt finish. Moderate carbonation. This is a great brew.

Beautiful dark brown body. Creamy light white/brown head that sticks to the glass. Tastes like dark fruit and a bit woody. Long lasting sweet bitter aftertaste.

(Draft. 03/2006) My last beer consumed in Belgium, at Zaventum National Airport, killing time before going through security. Not bad. Big, off-white head. Clear. Deep, deep brown. Big malty aromas. Sweet, malty taste. Some DMS. Have one and forget it. Relatively thin on the palate in the end.

Smooth, rich, sweet. Easy to drink. Induces a fortified wine sleepiness. Thick and tasty. Charming, I thought.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2012 Bottle. I had the pleasure of having this in Belgium, during my stay in Iper. I enjoyed the Brune with a fantastic pizza. Served with the proper Leffe glassware, it poured a dark brown color, with a light tan head. Aroma was fruity, like plum, but a bit of chocolate as well. Flavor was very smooth, sweet, and well balanced. Moderate carbonation. Wonderful malty finish, but did not mask the flavor. Later in the evening, I moved to another establishment, and ordered another. The location played a part, but the most relaxing beer I have had yet. Not easy to get the Brune where I live.

Bottle shared courtesy of fatty. Bottle labeled best before 25-08-2006. Poured a dark brown color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of fruits, light chocolate, yeast and a little smoky. Tastes of fruits, chocolate, and smoke.

Thanks to fatty for this... Appears a dark brown with a small tan head. Lots of lacing scattered everywhere along the glass. Smell is of delicate caramel, cocoa, with vanilla notes and yeast. Taste is of the same delicate aromas with the light amounts of caramel, cocoa, vanilla, and perhaps a hint of yeast & raisins in the mix. Mouthfeel is of a super smooth, velvetty batch. This may be one of the smoothest, silkiest brews that I have had. Really nice beer.
