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.

malty aroma with a sour and citrusy quality,pine and grape..a cloudy reddish brown with billowing head which dissipates to a beige coating..tastes of sweet lollipop like flavor swith the hops coming in at the end to cleanse your palate and make it tingle,almost like a barleywine..medium bodied slightly sticky and some dryness at the end..i usually dont go for most of the popular belgian styles but this one is good

cmacklin (473) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 12, 2015
355ml bottle. Pours a hazy burgundy with a huge, fluffy, long lasting, beige head that laces. Sweet aroma of dried fruit, spices, caramel malt, yeast and alcohol. Sweet flavour of dried fruit, caramel malt, liquorice, yeast, coriander and a hint of chocolate with a dry finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Nice. Alcohol is hidden well.

bottle. Pours a hazy dark brown with beige head. Lively carbonation. Heavy aromas of caramel malt and toffee. Bit of chocolate in the flavor with some tart fruitiness. Touch of licorice and some bitterness in the finish. Pretty complex.

Bottle poured into my snifter. Pours a deep hazy brown with big vanilla head. Aroma is banana, candied walnuts, dark fruits, and bubblegum. The taste is sweet figs, caramel, toffee, dark fruits like prunes and plums, and leather. Big body, active carbonation. Sweet finish.

Zymurgeist2 (1354) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 21, 2015
From bottle to tulip. Aroma is moderate baker’s bread with slight candi. Banana esters and bubblegum appeared as it warmed. Hazy mahogany with a full light brown head. Sweet malt with slight orange peel. An uninspiring faint richness, with a gritty finish on the flavor. Finishes nicely dry.

355ml bottle from Saveur-Biere.fr. Pours deep brown with small beige head. Promising sweet malty aroma. Taste is brown sugar and burnt currants, with spice & a lot of yeast. Smooth and flavoursome dubbel. Not bad.
