So very good and so easy to find in Europe. The stuff in the US on draft is a bit tasteless and bubbly.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2004
A pleasant surpirse, as I am not a fan of Leffe Blonde. Very mild aroma, nice cola colouring with a decent sweet/sour taste that is very mild for such a dark brew. A bit of bitterness in the aftertaste and a bit thin in the closing, but a very nice dubbel when all is said and done.

Eructoblaster (3156) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 7, 2004
On tap at Ste-Elizabeth (Montréal). Dark brown body with perfect foamy, large and lasting off-white head. Good malty aroma with various hints of toffee, bread and fruits. Alcohol is well hidden. Carbonation is soft, and taste is sweet and fruity. Average final with a warming touch. Very enjoyable beer.

nickchalk (229) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2004
Brown, fizzy tan head. Aroma is yeasty. Flavour is nutty. Water: lacks complexity, is quite boring for what one expects of the style. Not bad though. Draught.

This is a Ok Abbey Dubbel. Sweet, malty, and light flavors. Finishes dry, crisp, and clean.

Commodore (112) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2004
Sampled in a Zeller’s attempt at a Trappist glass. A rich dark colour with a long lasting dirty-snow-coloured head. Aroma of some N/A lager. Very thick, chewy palate. It has a woody taste, with more flavours apparent as it warmed. Apples, maybe, spices, berries and cherries of the forest. (reverse those last two). A very strong beer, had my head swimming (though I hadn’t eaten in 6 hours). Wouldn’t order especially, but wouldn’t shy away from it.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2004
Dark red, nice big light brown head. Aroma very fruity, soma banana and also apple can be noticed. Flavor is strongly fruity with convenient and cutting hops. Very creamy and full bodied mouthfeel. Leaves nicely yeasty and banana aftertaste in mouth. Nice and enjoyable beer.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2004
Hybrid rating: draft at the Abbaye and draft at Bieres et Compangne in MTL. Absolutely beautiful pour in MTL. Thick long lasting head; 2mm lace evenly coats the glass when finished. Flavor and palate not as remarkable as I remembered, nevertheless, thoroughly enjoyable.

An all-around great beer. Pours a dark, thick brown with a sizable tannish head. A malty aroma is balanced with a nice blend of spice (my comrade and I couldn’t single out any specific kind), both of which are prevalent in the flavor, along with maple, tannin, and berry fruit. Thick-bodied, ideally for the colder months, but, as we found, it can also be enjoyed during the summer. Good stuff.
