Pours a hazy dark copper colour with a reddish tinge and huge soapy head leaving sticky lace all up the glass. Aromas of rich sweet malt, rasins, plums, perfumy, lightly spicy, mild alcohol. Flavour is similar to the aroma, somewhat dry, the alcohol is more prominent and a high carbonation.

It pours amber with a full head and plenty of lacing. It has aromas of yeast, a bit of leather, and floral elements. It has flavors that are sweet with yeast, leather, and spicy notes. It has a bitter finish with warming.

3.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Best before date 05/2011. Lot 1892 07 37. An ’8’ per the label, but no pabv listed there. Brewed and bottled by Duvel Moorgaat NV, Puurs, Belgium.
On opening there is a delicate sweet white bread/orange spray, with mild caramel backing, pouring dark, with a higher head than some other Belgian Abbey Ales I could name.
There is a roast coffee/anise entry, with what may be leather and a little staleness midpalate, but wait and see. Full bitter.burnt chocolate finish. Sort of a triangle--starts fine, and ends broad, perhaps a tad clunky. Malt seems scorched and the sweetness tails off; if it weren’t so bitter, I’d think it’d be short on the finish.
Score is as is, at 4 plus years of age, perhaps 6. Needs to be revisited with a fresh bottle.

Amber color with small brown foam. Aroma of malt and caramel with spicy and fruity notes. Taste is light to medium sweet with medium body. Aftertaste is sweet and pleasant. It should be drank after it sits on room temp. for a few minutes, then you can sense all the aromas.

A brown beer with a very nice head. It has a nice fruity aroma and a very powerful ale taste with quite a lot of bitterness for a belgian beer. Really an enjoyable beer.

Bottle at the airport after a mad dash left us waiting over two hours for a delayed flight. ITs important to keep busy. Pours dark Brown with a Beige head. Caramel, candy sugar and bread dough. Nice balance of sweetness and spice. Full bodied and full flavoured. I like dubbels.
