4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sweet, spiced aroma...a bit of banana up front. Deep orange with a tan head. Moderately sweet with a dry finish. A hint of banana and other spiced fruits that are hard to nail down; a nice subtle roastiness and alcohol tones as well. Smooth texture. Excellent!

Bottle from Achelse Kluis. Dark copper brown with a lacing, tan head. Intense dark fruit, dusty cellar and chocolate aroma.The fruity flavours hints towards raisins and nuts, and there are notes of chocolate as well. An abbey-style beer that even picks up the best of a biere de garde.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottled, BBE 18/08/2011) Clear dark red-brown (murky dark amber with yeast) with a small, but firm and lacy head. Grainy malt, lots of sweetish berries and dried fruit in the nose. Flavor is berry-grainy-malty with syrupy dried fruitiness and banana. Medium to full body, slightly fizzy-foamy carbonation. A flavorful, sweetish dessert beer. Maybe a bit rough on the edges without yeast, but quite enjoyable with it. This is what I think Bornem Dubbel (excellent at the time) tasted like years ago. 6436

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This brune has a nice head, but not fenomenal.
One of the first things that struck me is the arome, wich was very good. It smelled very complex, in fact some of the better ones I've had. The taste is in contrary to the very complex and nice head a bit a disappointment. It tastes good, but I've expected a more complex palate, but that doesn't make this beer not worth drinking.
It is a good brew.
