12oz bottle from the beer store. Brown with ruby hues, frothy head with plenty retention and lacing. Smells of sweet caramel, a little chocolate and esters, just like you’d expect from a dark Belgian. Tastes of caramel dark fruit, and toffee, but mostly candied sugar (damn sugary). Very creamy and smooth with a slight hop bitterness on the finish. Not bad, but I’d grab other abbeys over this one.

Bue 15 mois avant DLC. Biere brune a fin col de mousse a bonne tenue. Carbo importante. Arome de caramel, houblons legers. Final caramel, malt grilles et pointe d’alcool. Belle rondeur. Jd prefere la blonde mais pas mal du tout.

FinnIckler (22) - GERMANY - AUG 21, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2016 Bottle bought at maruhn in eberstadt. Pours reddish brown. Smells of toffee and wheat. Starts a bit lackluster, but After a few Moments the taste gets full of chocolate, coffee and wheat. Lies a bit heavy in the stomach, even though it has medium carbonation. Does have an refreshing and awakening effect.

Syvän tummanruskea olut, hetken kestävällä vaahdolla. Hyvin hiivainen haju, maussa hiivaisuutta ja hieman metallisuutta & vetisyyttä, mutta ihan hyvä belgidubbel tämä on silti edelleen.

By far my favorite Trappist beer. Good ale taste with a bit of sweetness to it. Definitely good for sipping rather than chugging.
