3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

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.

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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
