Nice, but nowhere near as legendary as their 8 or 10. Autumnal orange brown with frothy white head. Aroma mostly malt with some spice - taste has malt, sugar, yeast, herbs and spices. Soft and mellow, fairly light on the palate with lively carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy brown orange color with big head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is spicy-herbal, really tea-like, caramel, and a bit fresh. Taste is spicy yeasts, caramel, herbs. Rather dry finish, with nice bitterness. Not bad, and rather light, but it?s got a bit of that Belgian dirt feeling.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2015 Served in a trappist glass. Amber with a white head. Aroma is caramel, toffee and herbs. Taste is caramel malt and belgian yeast. Light bittersweet finish. Strong belgian ale with high drinkability for a Dubbel but not so complex.

Bottle pour. Pours a cloudy amber color with a big fizz head. A bit of a skunky malt aroma. Some spice and herbal front flavor. Much lighter in flavor than originally anticipated. High carb. Finishes very herbal. It got more enjoyable as I went through, but I’ll label this beer as a simple : good.

Hazy dark amber, yeast floatties. Medium sized head, lasting and lacing.
Aroma of dough, botanical notes, some fruity esters and caramel, beautifully complex. Balanced taste, sweet malt, caramel, a bit hoppy, very complex and ballanced. Nice swetish and herbal hops finish and aftertaste.

Nice golden head during the pour. Lighter in color than 8 and 10. The aroma is strong in caramel. A very good ale with or without food.
