Appearance is a deep brown with slight cloudiness and a thick tan head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is dark fruit, raisin, licorice, and burnt sugar. Taste is deep and complex with caramel, molasses, dark fruit, licorice, and brown sugar. Mouthfeel is relatively thick, almost syrupy. Finishes with a deep rich malt flavor and alcohol warmth. Overall great dubbel.

Awesome especially from US. Fruity nose of grapes and dark dried cherries. Malts come through with mild toast and pumpernickel bread. Thick rich sweetness on palate.

Sample at Giant Eagle Market District. Pours a nice dark rich color with a pleasant fruity aroma. Somewhat thin for a darker beer but it doesn’t lack for flavor. A nice mixture of ingredients gives it a full rich taste that is pleasing to the palate. Smooth with little carbonation. Goes down easy. We tried 5 different Belgian beers at the store and bought a bottle of this to bring home.

One of my favorites. Total fan of Belgians. Drink it with anything, any time of day. It’s what you really wanted, I can guarantee it.

750ml corked bottle, poured in snifter. Pours a nice off white head that has good retention. Deep amber color. Clearly bottle conditioned, and carb level is nice. Big cherry woody aroma, with banana and spice. Smooth for a Dubbel, and quite nice. Alcohol bite at the end, licorice malty but not overbearing. Finish is clean. Tasty.

0.355l bottle. Courtesy of Cristobal37. Thanks! Hazy reddish dark orange body, beige head. Aroma of caramel, toast, orange peel, peach, brown sugar and nutmeg. Taste is really similar to the aroma, but it’s not that sweet which I like. The finish has some toast and floral hops to it. Very nice.

OMGGANG ABBEY’S ALE IS A WONDER FULL BELGIUM. THE SMELL AND THE FLAYVERS IS LIKE FRUITS AND SPICE. THIS IS SPECHAL TOO BELGIUMS. WHAT IS NOT GOOD IS THE BUBBLES. ITS SO BUBBLEY AND IT MADE ME SNEEZE TO. I LIKE TO YOU CAN RELLY FEEL THE CARBONEATION IN YOU’RE STOMACHE BUT THIS WONE YOU CAN RELLY FEEL THE CARBONEATION IN YOU’RE EYES AND NOSE. MY ADVISE TO YOU IS PUT A LITTLE SALT IN THE GLASS AND THEN RUB YOU’RE EARS AND STICK FINGERS INTO THE BEER. THEN IT IS REDY TO DRINK FAST.

Bottle to glass. A nice amber color, ruby red, lots of white head. Aroma is ton of dark fruit, plum, fig, yum. taste is surprisingly light, dry, a bit of tarty fruitiness. A bit of alcohol warmth as it goes down. Really nice easy drinking belgium beer.

draft that poured a medium rich mahogany color with minimal white head. initial aroma was medium to heavy sweet malts with some caramels notes as well as dark red fruits and cherries. the flavor was the sweet malts, caramels and red fruits with a predominant flavor of the cherry. very smooth and flavorful. nice malt backbone start to finish. really really good.

Olfactif: Dattes fraiches, raisins secs, alcool, mélasse, réglisse noire, anis étoilée, ne sont que quelques éléments d’un nez extrêmement puissant et complexe. Visuel: Brune assez voilée, beau collet généreux et dense, qui s’attarde longtemps sur le liquide. Gustatif: L’attaque est très chaleureuse et laisse découvrir des dates, des figues, du raisin, de la mélasse et une toute petite amertume de zeste d’orange. L’anis est cependant très (trop) discret. Un superbe exemple du style. On se croirait chez les Belges.
