daniel0017 (408) - Yukon, CANADA - OCT 16, 2006
Sweet coffee and dark chocolate nose. Beige, quickly dissipating, short head with dark brown and reddish body. Sweet, fruit, coffee and dark chocolate flavor. The palate is rich and full also. Not too bubbly, excellently balanced. Was expecting roughly the same as Leffe Blond but was pleasantly surprised... This one is much better in almost all respects.

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2006
330ml Bottle: Poured a rich mahogany with a thick foam head. Excellent head retention and lacing throughout on this one. A complex aroma rich in cherry, apple, and grape alongside sugar and roasted malts. The flavour is quite yeasty with great caramel malt flourishes and faint hops in the back. As it warms I noticed a strong port wine flavour with a touch of nuts in the aftertaste. One of the few abbey dubbel’s to lose intensity and flavour as it warms, but still a good brew.
