UPDATED: NOV 24, 2013 Bottle in the summer of 2005.
Brown color. Compared to the blonde it’s not as fresh in the scent. Almost unpleasant taste. Not my kind of beer at all.
4/3/4/3/8=2.2

Second rating on December 25, 2006.
Big bottle.
More a nice fruity and sweet tone to it than I remembered, the one time I had it before might have been a damaged bottle of some kind. Fresh fruity scent and taste, warming alcohol.

Beautiful dark brown color with fine head. Too much carbonation. Slightly burnt taste with caramel and a little bitterness.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2006
Coffee-coloured black. Aromas are pretty reserved, offering vague hints of black raspberry, malt and alcohol. The flavour is also pretty laid-back, much more reserved than expected, with a bit of chocolate and a bitter coffee finish. Palate feels nice and rich. I expected more but don’t mind this just the way it is.

Very dark red colour. thick, beige, lacy and slowly diminishing head. nose of dark fruits and a spicy touch with some citrus. roasty, hopsy taste and dark fruits, hint of PVC

Krasulak (88) - Wapadrand, Pretoria, SOUTH AFRICA - MAR 23, 2006
Bottle 33 cl. Brown hazy with a good off white head. Aroma of brown sugar malt and yeast. Medium sweet, toasted malt and fruityness (plum). Light bodied with light carbonation. Somewhat creamy palate. Finishes sweetly with a touch of bitterness. Not particularly complex but quite good Abbey Dubbel.

Fish (440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 20, 2006
Had this on tap at a lovely Irish Pub in Montreal called "Claddagh" (or something like that). It was verry tastey. Lots of character, but very drinkable for a Belgian Abbey Ale.

dj (567) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2006 Bottle, 750ml. A clear dark brown colour with an average lasting head. A room-filling aroma of malt, berries and honey. Perhaps a touch of disinfectant there too... Taste has strong roasted malts, dark chocolate and honey. A somewhat sweet, fairly bitter roasted malt finish. Moderate carbonation. This is a great brew.

Beautiful dark brown body. Creamy light white/brown head that sticks to the glass. Tastes like dark fruit and a bit woody. Long lasting sweet bitter aftertaste.

(Draft. 03/2006) My last beer consumed in Belgium, at Zaventum National Airport, killing time before going through security. Not bad. Big, off-white head. Clear. Deep, deep brown. Big malty aromas. Sweet, malty taste. Some DMS. Have one and forget it. Relatively thin on the palate in the end.
