Deep burgundy color with a big, fluffy head. Complex fruit aromas with a layered sweetness (honey, then caramel, then toffee) with a hint of licorice and chocolate. A big, rich, abbey-style ale that dries out nicely on the finish.

Not a type al dubbel bit a great Abbey style beer. It has a los of layers. It has a dark ruby color, medium head retention. Caramel and figs aroma and flavor. Kind of crisp, I guess it has some maturation. Canít even taste the alcohol. Like this beer, will drink it again.

DarkSong (322) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - DEC 27, 2014
12 oz bottle. It pours a reddish brown with a large fairly long lasting head. It has the aroma of caramel, figs & nuts. It tastes like toffee, caramel, bread and fruit with a earthy flavor and some bitterness. Iím really enjoying this beer. Iíd buy it again and have really liked everything Iíve had by this brewery.

Jado (604) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - DEC 22, 2014
From pint bottle. Pours a deep red-brown with a fluffy cream coloured head. Aromas of dark toffee, dates, raisins, currants and spice. Taste is all dark fruit at the front end before a gentle roasty bitterness comes in. Chocolate and maybe a little black coffee towards the end. Medium bodied with a lingering spicy aftertaste. Liked this a lot.

luttonm (2868) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 16, 2014
750ml bottle in Seattle. Pretty and rich brown, good head. Sweet dubbel, really a terrific aroma that reminds of Belgian browns and old ales. Some tart red fruit, balanced alcohol and leathery notes. One of the better American versions of a Belgian style. Tasty.

Bottle from Drinkmonger. Velvety red body with a thick, lasting beige head. Great lacing. Aroma of toffee, strawberry syrup, wood and creamy malt. Flavour of red apple, salted caramel and yeast. Full body with a creamy mouthfeel. Light carbonation. A brilliant, complex beer.

Ommegang really captures that abbey ale essence. It compares nicely to Chimay red. It has all the soft ale-fruit taste, like hints of apple and banana, with a nice moderate hoppiness, and cloudy brown color.

piscator34 (2033) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 21, 2014
750ml corked and caged. Ruby in colour with fairly strong carbonation. Aromas are of sultanas, toffee, and dried orchard fruit. Strong toffee-ish malt flavor along with red apple, and herbs. Light bodied. On point style wise, but a touch fruity for me.

rjmc64 (32) - Deer Park, New York, USA - NOV 17, 2014
Pours medium brown with a big fluffy had that dissipates quickly. Nose is dank and musty. Rapidly evolving flavors from honey to fig to toffee. Semi dry finish.

UXO (596) - CANADA - NOV 9, 2014
Pours clear amber-brown with one finger of loose light tan head diminishing rapidly to nothing, no lacing. (3/5) Nose is boozy dark fruits - raisins, figs, dates - toffee malt, faint spice. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, mild bitter, slight sour. (6/10) Medium body, prickly to moderate sustained carbonation, warming finish. (4/5) Iím a little puzzled by this one - I was expecting something a little more polished. The alcohol, for example, is immediately apparent on the nose, and thereís a bit of sour in the finish that Iím not entirely sure should be there. The bottle looked a little chewed up, so itís possible I ended up with an old or badly-handled one. I may need to re-review this later, possibly from a proper corked 750ml bottle. (11/20)
