Bottled. Malt, banana, raisin and cove in the aroma. Flavor is initially burnt malt, progreesing to fruit and bitterness. Mouthfeel is surprisingly thin. A little nice lasting bitterness. Overall a decent mass produced belgian ale and i like the roasted quality, but i probably prefer the blond.

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2006 One of the first beers that open my eyes to what great beer could tast like. First go at a double at the time. Smooth, ritch and very drinkable, with a light/dark color and tast. A slight bit of burned caramel and a sweet ending.

Stefano (1886) - Thisted, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2011 Let me say right away that I prefer the maltyness of dubbels to the spiciness of tripels. The aroma & flavour were highly malty, so I liked it, even though slightly medicinal. Finish is a little sweet but that’s alright in my book too.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 23, 2006
Poured from the bottle at Hideaway Bar in Wimbledon (London), dark black with a large rocky tan head. A yeasty aroma with caramal. Quite carbonated in the mouth, spicey caramal flavours and a tangy finish.

Has nice white-brown head, aroma is a bit yeasty and chocolate, tastes on chocolate and caramel and slightly bitter aftertaste.

pubbe (493) - Højbjerg, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2006
Bottle. Golden brown with mostly lasting beige head. Aroma offers plenty of malt (some of which burnt), and some bitterness. In the flavor these are supplemented with some sweet caramel and a little hint of espresso. Fairly long slightly bitter finish.

emjay (30) - Markham, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2006
Bottle. Pours a deep deep read with an impressive beige head. Aroma is of yeast and chocolate. Taste had mild notes of chocolate, caramel, coffee, and spices, with very little bitterness. The palate is quite thin and moderately carbonated. A pretty unremarkable beer.

Borup (6305) - Albertslund, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2006
Bottle. Brown colour with a beige head. Sweet roasted malt aroma and flavour of coffee, malt and caramel.

Diogène (1066) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 6, 2006
Bouteille, LCBO. Brun foncé et opaque avec une mousse épaisse qui dure relativement longtemps. Assez subtile au nez, malt, biscuit, caramel et raisins. Âcreté au goût, levure, caramel, biscuit, assez amère. Bien pour quelqu’un qui veut s’initier aux bières belges, mais rien d’exceptionnel.

One of my first belgium beer. Tasted some years ago but still love to get a new taste, good start for new abbey tasters. Nice beer.
