COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

A- poured a deep cloudy ruddy brown with a rich creamy cappuccino head. Great retention and big lacing throughout the beer. S-redolent with dark fruit (raisins and cherry), citrus, and spices. T- this is what a dubbel is supposed to taste like. The amalgamation of the ingredients is incredible, with no one flavor drowning out any one else but all of them harmoniously coexisting like a Belgian Beer commune. Fruit, spices, roasted malts all have a chance to move across your palate. M- full, with a slight slick unctuous character O- an outstanding example of the dubbel style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On the aroma, I picked up strong hints of licorice, Christmas fruitcake or panettone, prune, raisins, and other dried fruit, along with the usual caramel and maple syrup I normally associate with this type of brew. The appearance was a simply splendid amber colored beauty with a soft, tan pillowy head. It seems evenly medium-bodied on the tongue with perfect carbonation. The taste up front was slightly sweet and spicy in the licorice sense but then it quickly dries out once it get to the back of your tongue and upon swallowing. Endlessly fascinating. I do enjoy this style and am anxious to compare it to Chimay Rouge.

Nice-looking deep reddish-brown beer with a thick creamy tan head. Sour nose of light balsamic, blood orange, and resin. Flavor is both sweet and sour. It starts with orange blossom honey then moves to mirin before closing with some lightly burnt caramel. Richly effervescent, this is a quaffable abbey ale.

Bottle. Pours brown with thick creme colored head. Smells like a wheat abbey ale and tastes such. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice dark burgundy/ruby color and nice head. Not much on the aroma, pick up hints of plum. You can pick up the spices and citrus flavors with a nice malt background on first taste. Very nice, typical Belgian style from Ommegang!

On tap. Pours a hazy brown with a tan head and lacing. It has a rich aroma of raisin, apple, some caramel, and toasted malt. The flavor is rich fruit up front with a solid malt backbone and a slightly sweet, slightly dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great cork beer. Pours a nice redish brown color with hints of carmel and orange. This is abbey ale fans must. Very enjoyable.

Sweet candy aromas. Nice red clear color. Candy sweet up front with flavors of plum, sweet fruit, raisins. Dry finish with a bitterness that lingers nicely. Strong showing.

Red with tan head. Weak aroma of raisins. Taste of caramel and dried fruit s. Strong alcoholic taste. Fizzy because my beer was shook up.
