Nice spritzy head. Aroma of dark fruits (raisins) and rum with some roast and chocolate. Taste follows aroma with a stronger chocolate/roasty flavor at the finish. Alcohol seems pretty restrained but present. Nice layering of flavors. Nice dubbel with more roast/chocolate than others.

A very decent abbey beer. Gives a good kick with its 8%, but doesn’t have that harsh alcoholic taste to it like for example Delirium. Would drink again soon (ok, I have more in the fridge).

De laatste uit België. Ruikt lekker Droppig. Dun schuim, goed voor een bruine. Smaakt zoet, maar net niet super lekker. Nasmaak wat minder...

radagast83 (4901) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - NOV 6, 2014
11.2oz bottle. Poured a dark copper color with a small off-white head. Wow, I can’t believe I haven’t had this one, of all the beers I haven’t possibly have had... Aroma was dark pitted fruits - raisins, plums. Flavor was toasted caramel notes, candi sugar character. Easy drinking, nice sweetness. Exceptional example of the style.
