I tried this beer on June 28, 2008 after purchasing from the Queen’s Quay LCBO outlet in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer pours a slightly translucent dark brown with a long lasting tan coloured head. The aroma was sweet malt and some spices. The mouthfeel is medoim bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is primarily malty, with a hoppy bitter finish, and in between, some peppery spiciness.

Tried at the Belgium Beer Cafe CHCH in NZ. Dark almost black appearance. Good size brown head. Smooth, malty beer with a distinct and strong coffee after taste. Nice beer, but could only have a couple.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2009 Poured a very dark brown, almost black, and very cloudy. Had an off-white foamy head that was long lasting. Beautiful taste - amazing mix of flavors! Very smooth, medium body, and easy to drink.

Threw back a few golbets of this and then found myself chugging pitchers later on in the night. Extremely tasteful abbey dubbel that goes down smoothly.

On tap at "Krøjers Familiehave". Deep brown body with a large off white head. Sweet "thick" body with lots of malt in the flavour. Sweet finish.

REDBOSOX (80) - Vineyard Haven, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 5, 2008
This is a delicious brown ale that I’ll take any day over Newcastle. Newcastle’s good, but this one’s much better. It’s got more flavor, it’s sweeter, smoother, and the aftertaste is better too. Hard to believe it’s 6.5% ABV. You won’t even realize it until you’ve had a few of them and catch a buzz.

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2008 A clear brown colored beer, with a beige foamed head. The aroma has caramel and roasted malts in it. The taste is fruity sweet, with roasted malts, a little bitter. Then there is a sweet/bitter aftertaste. Good beer but nothing special.
