Has a clouded dark brown color with a thick off-white head. Smell is of malt and spice. Taste is of malt/spice/chocolate and finishes with a slight alcohol bit. Overall a fine strong ale.

0.33 bottle. Very darl brown color and a large, tanned head of great retention. Aroma of dark malts, some glass, dark fruits, delicate caramel, and subtle toast. Taste is sweet and sour with caramel and malts creating the former and dark fruits the latter. It also features some metallic and washing soap notes. Medium body, slick texture, and above average carbonation. Finish is medium long and kind of sour. Overall the beer is watery and the taste somewhat chemical; either I had a bad batch or it’s simply not as good.

Pours a muddy brown with a thin head leaving behind light lacing. Aromas are of raisin bread soaked in booze. Tastes of raisin bread, toffee, and some definite booziness.

Leicht trübes dunkles rotbraun. Offehite, mittellanger Schaum. Hefig nach Pferdestall, süsslich, Honig, Trockenpflaumen und Harz. Bitter-süss, malzig, pflaumig und Honig im Antrunk. Mittelvoll, leicht cremig, kaum Säure, wenig Co2. Alk fühlbar, nicht unangenehm. Abgang malzig-fruchtig, mittellang. Recht gut.

Dark beige head with light candy aroma. Brown and moderately hazy body. In mouth, Good balance of carbonation and some thickness made of toffee, malts and sweet taste. Great with warm bistro food. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Typical double, modest foam head. Aroma: nice mellow blend of vanilla, chocolate, nutmeg, black pepper, dried apricots, plums, raisins. Typical double again, but nice. Taste is followed by aroma, with vanilla, chocolate and plums. Hint of laurel, salty licorice (salmiak) and nutmeg,in the evolution. Slightly sticky aftertaste.

Fine beer as second choice at the Maredsous cafe by the abbey. Wife liked this one better (but of course she prefers darker/maltier beers).

BOTTLE 33 CL. Lovely ruby red color and a long-standing creamy head. Rich aroma of dried fruit, dried cranberries, figs, some fruity liqueur, aromatic malt. The taste is dried fruit, some caramel, grainy, spicy hop and alcoholic bitterness to balance, sweet but dry enough to be easy drinking. The body is lighter than the aroma suggests, but still hefty. The palate is left somewhat sticky, despite the bitterness, and a bit numb from the warming alcohol. A bigger kind of dubbel. Very nice.
