Birra d’abbazia davvero gradevole. Apparenza stimolante, poca schiuma, gusto amaro piacevole con un retrogusto di caramello e pane tostato.

Rhombic (118) - SPAIN - JUL 3, 2016
Pours reddish brown, tan head. Apple and grass, some cider-like aroma coming through too (reminiscent of a local wild fruit: madroño). Caramel, dried fruits and a few hints of malt make up the perfectly balanced flavour profile - this is what we want! Smooth taste, alcohol well concealed, not stridently sharp. A bit of wood/leather with the yeasty flavour, for that mildly astringent note, giving it a very mellow background. Really nice. Oily, medium body with a nice gradual finish. No major complaints, a good brew!

tricksta_p (3613) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is malt, caramel, raisins, dried fruits, spices, brown sugar, hint of roast. Flavour is sweet with a little bitterness in the finish. Body is a medium, pretty solid. Overall a decent typical Dubbel.

Small bottle in Vientiane, Laos. Reddish brown colour with a short-lived light brown foam. Lively carbonation. Fruit and malt, some caramel and yeast. Balanced flavours. Not bad by any means but an unremarkable Dubbel.

WilkerNet (12) - Salvador, BRAZIL - JUN 27, 2016
Singular cerveja de abadia de sabor impecável. Apresenta moderado amargor e aroma com toques de chocolate, frutas e caramelo. A espuma é cremosa e densa além de duradoura e, ao meu gosto, saborosa. Esta deliciosa belga Dark Strong Ale tem teor alcoólico de 8%. Simplesmente maravilhosa. Fiquei fã!

Very well balanced, rounded body. The aroma is intense honey, valeric acid, citric, ceder, fresh wood, almonds. Stone fruits, grape fruit nuances mixed with roasted coffee, nuts, cocoa notes. Good beer.

GoddamnNoise (62) - Pontevedra, SPAIN - JUN 12, 2016
Aroma: alcohol, subtle aromas of: cereal, bread, caramel, malt. Appearance: nice light-medium amber color. Low-to-medium thick head with beige foam made of tiny bubbles. Medium retention. NIce Brussels’ lace. Clear liquid. Taste: low-to-medium bitterness, low-to-medium sweet. No sour. Palate: light body, Thin, watery texture. Soft Carbonation. Slightly short sweet finish. Overall: alcohol is too obvious in the nose and in the mouth. Great color and appearance. Not much flavor. The Maredsous Blond is much more interesting and refreshing.
