Brown pour with a somewhat turbid body and creamy maple shaded head. The nose is sweet and yeasty with a nice malty backbone. This abbaye dubbel delivers caramelized malts, which give a soft bitterness, good hops paired with an effervescent sweetness and finishes with a pleasant warmth. Simply a great belgium ale.

RafeAU (216) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - DEC 27, 2014
a deep brown red, overly high carbonation. aroma is sweet, alcohol, malty. Low esters. and to just get simple; this is okay, I was hoping for more.

A sweet Belgian brown. Warming alcohol becomes more noticeable as you continue the drink. Smooth and not overly complex.

Beautiful ruby brown color. Fairly carbonated. Head is only half a finger. Initial taste is of a good brown/anber beer, but after taste is very flat, and i feel the total taste is quite bitter and not that complex. Aroma is also not that special. Overall a good beer, but not great, no where near world class.

ThirstyBird (1754) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - DEC 21, 2014
Pours a call brown with reddish highlights and a ran head. The smell is fruity, brown sugar with a vineous quality. The taste is as it smells with a pretty solid sweet call melt presence... Giving caramel, toasted malt, licorice and cherry flavors. Light+ in with average carbonation. Quite complex in flavor, this one.

Butelka, warka do 04 2016. Aromat karmelowy, owocowy (sliwki), lekko miodowy, alkoholowy. Piana dosc ladna ale bardzo szybko znikajaca, fajnie brudzi szklo. Piekna barwa - czerwono--mahoniowo-miedziana. w smaku nieco drozdzy, rodzynki, sliwki, karmel, alkohol. sumarycznie dosc slodki. odczucia w ustach nieco jak przy piciu porto czy likieru. Alkohol prawdopodobnie by sie bardziej ulozyl za jakis czas, az kusi, zeby odlozyc do lezakowania. Raczej pozytywne wrazenia, ale raczej tez nie bede powtarzal.

HippyHop (305) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 18, 2014
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.
