Bottle - Dark brown with little head. Aroma of cream and chocolate and berries, unexpected and nice. Flavor is a tad sour and bitter, with notes of chocolate, yeast and toasted grain. Mouthfeel is nice with good carbonation.

Couleur rousse avec un mince col beige assez durable. Assez complexe comme saveurs: caramel,fruits rouges,raisin, torréfaction, un petit coté sauvage, sucre brun. Ce boit tres bien, excellente!

alteregoo (43) - POLAND - NOV 22, 2014
Piana grubo i średnio pęcherzykowa, szybko opada do poziomu zero. Barwa brązowo-miedziana, klarowna, piwo ładnie bąbelkuje w szkle. Aromat początkowo dość kwaśny, kojarzący się z przejrzałym winem owocowym, po chwili dochodzi karmel, trochę paloności, alkoholu. Nie jest tak intensywny i szlachetny jak w innych dublach. Smak też jakoś mniej szlachetny, czuć alkohol i pestkową, nieprzyjemnie zalegającą goryczkę. Dość wysokie, szczypiące w język wysycenie. Mało słodkości, bardziej wytrawny profil, przyprawowy, delikatna kwaśność wiśniowo-kawowo-chlebowa. Piwo jest ciężkie przez swoją likierowo-piekącą alkoholowość w połączeniu z dziwnie przeszkadzającą goryczą, a jednocześnie puste, wodniste jak na dubla, pozbawione całej gamy estrów suszonych ciemnych owoców, rodzynek i trufli. Liczyłem na znacznie lepsze piwo, mimo małej pojemności trudno je niestety dopić.

TH28 (139) - - NOV 21, 2014
Appearance is a murky, muddy brown with minimal off white foam cap. Aroma is raisin, clove, wood, whiskey, vanilla, and chocolate. Taste is cherry, caramel, raisin, with woody notes on the backside. Bitterness is just enough to balance the rich malt. Mouthfeel is medium with slight creaminess and a high carbonation and noticeable alcohol warmth. Finishes with some lingering dark fruit and caramel maltiness.

maxwelldeux (3763) - Everett, Washington, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours a cloudy and very dark amber color with a thick tan head on there. Nose has some raisin, candied sugar, and caramel coming through for me. Taste is a little sweet and malty. Feels fairly heavy on the palate.

bwyu (32) - - NOV 17, 2014
Nice spritzy head. Aroma of dark fruits (raisins) and rum with some roast and chocolate. Taste follows aroma with a stronger chocolate/roasty flavor at the finish. Alcohol seems pretty restrained but present. Nice layering of flavors. Nice dubbel with more roast/chocolate than others.

GuideDogSaint (425) - Xiamen, CHINA - NOV 13, 2014
330ml bottle from Metro, Xiamen. Pours hazy brown with a thin off white head. Bready aroma with raisins. Finish is on the sweet side. Nice.

A very decent abbey beer. Gives a good kick with its 8%, but doesn’t have that harsh alcoholic taste to it like for example Delirium. Would drink again soon (ok, I have more in the fridge).

Nieco cierpki posmak ale dobrze przykrywaj?cy alkohol, wersja niebieska chyba nieco lepsza.
