Beerheart65 (957) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 7, 2014
Clear ruby with hint of mahogany, light brown frothy head. Sweet and malty aroma has also bit fruits, some licorice, ash and Belgian yeast. Medium body, slightly fizzy feel, alcohol is evident, malty with balancing fruits, light feel. Tasty but could use more nuances and better flavors, bit watery.

VDuquerroux (208) - Airvault, FRANCE - APR 27, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A clear sparkling dark brown beer with a large white-off head, thin texture. Medium persistence. Nice lacing. Aroma of caramel, liquorice, roasty malt, alcohol, some fruits. Light bitterness as a base line with warming medium sweet waves. Full body, silky texture, average carbonation, long warming finish. Overall, a good dubbel (nice look and aroma).

TXBadger (1214) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 23, 2014
Pours a nice brown colors. Aroma has dark fruits, prune, fig, and dark cherry. On the palate the dark fruits are very present, but balanced nicely with just a little yeast. Finishes with a semi-sweet note.

Dark brown, with hints of honey gold when backlit. Uneven white head, with a good amount of lacing. The aroma is complex. Taste is very mature, with a warm alcohol finish. Sparkly champagne bubbles in mouthfeel. Served at Taverne Manneken Pis in Brussels June 5 2007.

martjoobolut (545) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 17, 2014
0,33L bottle, BB 07.2015. Pours dark ruby with off white head. The head stays. Aroma is caramel, brown sugar, and some spicy notes. Taste burnt sugar, some tart, fruits, and malt. Alcohol well covered. Overall: good beer, but not as good as I hoped (and rating would suggest).

fkoolen (217) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2014
Dark reddish brown, beige creamy head, quite stable. Spicy sweet aroma and taste with red fruits, plums, figs, clove, gingerbread, chocolate, roasted malts, sweet dark bread, even some boozy burn, smoke and wood coming through. Complex but rounded with nicely balanced sweet, sour and bitter tones. Aftertaste is bittersweet and a bit dry. Medium bodied, oily mouthfeel, relatively high carbonated. Very nice abbey double, body could be bigger.
