Very intense for a dubbel, dark with strong Belgian character. Pours thick with a large head. Pretty well balanced and overall one of my favorite Belgian ales.

Pour is just beautiful: mahogany with a massive, pillowy tan cap that lasts forever and sticks to the glass like a clingy girlfriend at a party full of strangers (I don’t even know what that means, and I’m sorry Ray). Nose is lots of dark fruit (raisins, prunes), caramel, Belgian yeast, a bit of booze. Taste is moderately sweet, lightly bitter/sour, with a nice touch of bitterness on the finish. Booze is well-masked for 8%. Good stuff.

330cc bottle. Beautiful brown red colour with tan persistent foamy head. It is fruity and with nicely balanced sweetness/sourness. Very nice bruin abdij.

Boxereddy (146) - BELGIUM - DEC 9, 2014
Roodbruin bier met dunne beige schuimkraag. Duidelijk geroosterde mout in de neus. Licht mondgevoel met karamel en bessen in de smaak. Zacht bitterige afdronk.

Ulysse (120) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 8, 2014
Attractive tan head with abundant foam. Something in its aroma makes me think of molasses. Rich first impression. Then it’s suddenly gone. A dominant roasted malt component.

- Alcoholpercentage van 8% - Redelijk biertje destijds gedronken - Niet verkeerd, maar heb naar mijn smaak veel lekkerder biertjes gedronken - Vandaar mijn niet al te hoge waardering uiteindelijk ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Couleur rousse avec un mince col beige assez durable. Assez complexe comme saveurs: caramel,fruits rouges,raisin, torréfaction, un petit coté sauvage, sucre brun. Ce boit tres bien, excellente!

Piana grubo i średnio pęcherzykowa, szybko opada do poziomu zero. Barwa brązowo-miedziana, klarowna, piwo ładnie bąbelkuje w szkle. Aromat początkowo dość kwaśny, kojarzący się z przejrzałym winem owocowym, po chwili dochodzi karmel, trochę paloności, alkoholu. Nie jest tak intensywny i szlachetny jak w innych dublach. Smak też jakoś mniej szlachetny, czuć alkohol i pestkową, nieprzyjemnie zalegającą goryczkę. Dość wysokie, szczypiące w język wysycenie. Mało słodkości, bardziej wytrawny profil, przyprawowy, delikatna kwaśność wiśniowo-kawowo-chlebowa. Piwo jest ciężkie przez swoją likierowo-piekącą alkoholowość w połączeniu z dziwnie przeszkadzającą goryczą, a jednocześnie puste, wodniste jak na dubla, pozbawione całej gamy estrów suszonych ciemnych owoców, rodzynek i trufli. Liczyłem na znacznie lepsze piwo, mimo małej pojemności trudno je niestety dopić.

Appearance is a murky, muddy brown with minimal off white foam cap. Aroma is raisin, clove, wood, whiskey, vanilla, and chocolate. Taste is cherry, caramel, raisin, with woody notes on the backside. Bitterness is just enough to balance the rich malt. Mouthfeel is medium with slight creaminess and a high carbonation and noticeable alcohol warmth. Finishes with some lingering dark fruit and caramel maltiness.

maxwelldeux (3791) - Everett, Washington, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours a cloudy and very dark amber color with a thick tan head on there. Nose has some raisin, candied sugar, and caramel coming through for me. Taste is a little sweet and malty. Feels fairly heavy on the palate.

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.
