I am really impressed with this beer. It comes off as very modest and reasonably priced. We opted for it because there wasn’t much at the local supermarket that we hadn’t already tried and we were looking for something new. It has a strong flavor of toasted oats, but not as strong as a porter or even a stout. It is mildly sweet, but without that residual sugar taste left on the tongue that can sometimes be off putting. If I were to compare it to a more mainstream variety, I’d say it’s similar to Negro Modelo, with more intense caramel and oat flavors.

nazbion (111) - Tübingen, GERMANY - JUL 27, 2015
Pours dark brown with creamy persistent beige head. Aroma of candy sugar, dark fruits, molasses and some toasted malt. Taste is sweet with a light bitterness at the end. Medium body, light carbonation. Balanced and accessible dubbel.

Not bad for a Belgium bier. Aftertaste is a tad heavy, so it doesn’t get high marks from me.

SkillsFactory (179) - ITALY - JUL 27, 2015
Color tonaca di frate chiaro, schiuma beige di media persistenza. Aroma fruttato di banana matura e uvetta, zucchero caramellato, leggermente speziata. Al palato stesse note fruttate e caramellate, corpo medio, mediamente carbonata.

Absoluut geen aanwinst voor onze o zo mooie biercultuur, vind dit bier allesbehalve een meerwaarde voor ons o zo mooie land. Proef hier vooral heel veel suiker en zeker en vooral een bier dat gebrouwen is om snel te verkopen. Heb dit bier vroeger als puber echt veel gedronken.

hrabren (143) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 18, 2015
Another Belgian classic, drank it since I was a kid. Dark brown with reddish tint, off white small head. Only hints of dried fruit and caramel. A bit mediocre taste, sweet, nuts, fruity. Medium body, weak finish. Not my favorite.

Malty slightly chocolatey aroma. Dark brown, nearly black. Slightly spicy. Really delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

McWorta (998) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 14, 2015
Deep nut brown with an off-white head and good lacings. Aromas of artificial dark chocolate, malt and candid-sugar and some faint hints of dried fruit. Light carbonation, somewhat slick and a medium-full body. Malty sweetness with hints of chocolate are dominating with a very faint bitterness lurking around the corner after a good while. Medium lasting finish.

bartholos (100) - GERMANY - JUL 8, 2015
Bottle. Dark reddish-brown, clear and fizzy with a full frothy tan head. Aroma of roasted malts and caramel along with fruity notes of plum and resin. Taste is light sweet with a bitter finish. Flavor is fruity and roasted as well, with a well noticeable alcoholic touch and I had some metallic notes as well. The body is medium to thick with medium carbonation and some alcoholic warmth.

jamestulloch (2139) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 7, 2015
Bottle at Tovjerna Sesame, Dubrovnik. Dark brown body with a thick beige head. Nice lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee granules, toast and prunes. Flavour of caramel, fig and ashy malts. Thin to medium body with a watery texture. Lively fizz. Quite tasty but lacking body and depth.
