WhoU (121) - Cape Town, - JAN 21, 2013
(Bottle) medium dark maroon with oamy big head. good appearance. sous initial sting wth intesting malty ending. Although it feels like the beer is missng something in the middle region after the initial sting. Definitly aroma and flavour of umami, marmite o bovril and savoury mince. Pours clear dark ruby with big beige head - looks very enticing. Aroma is not very distinct, caramel with hint of wet leaves. Medium bodied and rather surprisingly fizzy. Starts slightly sour and then the rich caramel malt flavours develop. Just as the flavours seem to be subsiding a rich and bitter kick develops at the end. I was expecting more from this beer, so it left me disappointed mainly about a rather muddy and odd set of flavours

Marrom escuro, boa formação de espuma e estabilidade. Aroma bem intenso de ameixas, figo, caramelo, açúcar mascavo. Na boca, ela é adocicada e alcoólica. Corpo médio. Final adocicado, alcoólico. Boa cerveja.

barbillon (37) - Pesaro, ITALY - JAN 2, 2015
Questa birra di primo impatto assomiglia a una Orval...però molto più delicato...non per questo più apprezzato...anzi! Una buona birra da gustarsi in compagnia!

strap (491) - Seoul, SOUTH KOREA - JAN 2, 2015
pours a dark brown. heavy on the alcohol, very noticeable. slightly sweet, a brown sugar sort of taste that lingered. a very nice beer. a full bottle of this is enough for one session.

Beardbeerman (138) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
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.
