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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
NYC Trip Beer #11. Tried out Vol de Nuit in the West Village and was really disappointed. All Belgian list, but nothing rare or outside the mainstream. Seems like a cool concept with poor execution. Why add this information? Because I think atmosphere can add or detract from a rater’s impression of a beer. Poured a deep amber. Sweet yet bland flavoring. This beer seems like a run-of-the-mill Dubbel. Bottle - Vol de Nuit - New York, NY

Pours dark brown, but to light it shines a beautiful red! very little head but lots of lacework. The thin layer of head remains for the duration of the beer.
Strong sweet malt aromas. Stewed fruit, cherries, plum and chocolate.
Rich, complex malt flavors with some hop bitterness.
Light bodied with a medium-dry finish. High carbonation in the mouth!
A good beer, but there are others that I would drink.

Pours a deep brown with a nutty aroma. Taste is a bit creamy with choco nuts flavor. A slight bitterness bitterness tickles the back of the throat. Overall a decent beer for the style.

330 ml bottle. L3036/0332. BB 07/2015. From bierzwerg.de.
Dark clear reddish brown colour with a small to average sized foamy light tan head. The aroma has chocolate all over it. After the strong chocolate comes some bready malt, mild hops, cola and mild alcohol. The flavour is malt, hops, dark chocolate, cola and some dark fruits. Rather enjoyable. Slightly thin.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From 330 ml bottle, poured a deep brown with a small beige head. The nose has raisins, currants, peach, caramel, apple, vanilla and spice. The taste starts off with big fruit flavours of dried fruits, baked apple, a little peach and some light citrus. Then some biscuit and bread characters kick in. There’s some tartness on the finish. Full, creamy mouth feel and a lightly spicy aftertaste. Nice stuff.

Aroma of sweet caramel malt and a trace of yeast. Taste of sweet caramel malt, fruits, and a trace of spice. Medium body. Long smooth sweet finish. Nice.
