macio_men (161) - Warszawa, POLAND - DEC 25, 2015
Butelka 0,75l przywieziona z Brukseli. Aromat kwaskowaty, chmielowy, skórka chleba. Wygląd perfekcyjny, piana bardzo gęsta i bardzo wysoka; piwo lekko przejrzyste o mętnym, czerwonym zabarwieniu. Stosunkowo mocne nasycenie. W smaku wyczuwalna mocna goryczka, kwaskowatość, troszkę rodzynki. Trochę przebija się alkohol. Spodziewałem się więcej.

bg80 (84) - California, USA - DEC 19, 2015
From the small bottle. Overall an excellent Abbey dubbel, Trappist worthy. Complex, sweet, flavorful. Nice carbonation. A little thin compared to the best of the best, but its a quibble.

Suiker, hout, kersen, graan, kastanje, gist, leer. Krachtig maar niet heel verfijnd. Al die suiker altijd maar man.. Backlog from 2015/03/07.

mrjez (317) - Osaka, JAPAN - DEC 4, 2015
L: pours a hazy brown with amber highlights showcasing carbonation, and a gorgeous two-fingers of beige foam. S: a strong bready malt, as I work my way through, I get raisins, brown sugar, a little alcohol, and some champagne notes through the yeast. T: follows the nose accurately, definitely sweet but it gets cancelled out by alcohol esters and Belgian yeast. F: has the body and feel more of a Belgian pale, quite spritzy up front, reasonably light body, but with warming in the throat. O: very nice, just lags behind the best through a little less complexity and body, but a very solid dubbel.
