Pours a dark mahogany color with a tan head that has good retention. The taste is of caramel and coffe malts there is also a distinct hop taste. There is a lot of carbonation present and the alcohol is well hidden.

A fine dark Belgian that smells as good as it looks. Very balanced flavor with caramel sweetness and an alcohol presence. Smooth texture and nice finish. Definitely drink this in the proper container at the proper temperature for total enjoyment.

On draft at Ludwig’s Garten... Appears a dark brown with a light red hue and a beige head that slowly fades out. Light scattered lacing is left around the glass. Smell is of light caramel, cocoa, figs, raisins, with some doughy bread notes. Taste is of the same aromas that seem to work well in unison. Mouthfeel is full bodied with a creamy, sugary raisin, and yeasty feel that cling to the palate.

timtheenchanta (70) - Clemson, South Carolina, USA - JUN 4, 2006
Dark brown with large tan head and lots of thick lacing. The smell is dark fruit and alcohol maybe a little bit of plum. The taste is alcohol and roasted grains… surprisingly. Tastes of coffee and none of the fruitiness from the smell. Smooth creamy feel. A bit thin. Good taste. Interesting brew. I’ll try this one again the next time I get a chance.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 3, 2006
Bottle 51F Trappist Glass. Aroma of malts, dark and rich in aroma, very little hops presence, notes of yeast and peach like fruit smells, very warming smell. Appearance, is dark red, with a lgith brown fluffy long lasting head. Taste is lighter than expected, with sour notes to bitter notes, almost no sweetness is present, no sweet chocolate or delicious malty characters. Very light mouthfeel, with high carbonation, the finish appears off to me. Alcohol is not noticble which is good. An average belgian strong. The mouthfeel is to light nor is their very much complexity.

eaglefan538 (3027) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 2, 2006
An nice beer, but within its class, nothing special. Poured with an ok head that quickly disappeared and left minimal lacing. Nice ruby brown color but the aroma was somewhat of alcohol and the flavor was slightly bitter with an alcohol-vinous touch. Advertised as a "dubbel," this was lacking the sweetness typical of many dubbels.

750ml corked bottle. Deep dark garnet color. Funky and musty. Notes of vanilla and prunes. Caramel and toast. Tasty and dry.
