commonmac (673) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Bottle purchased at Total Wine & Spirits. Poured into Belgian glass. Aroma is kind of a cola, plum/dark fruit. It’s a murky, mahogany/brown color with tan head. Little bit of a funky, yeast or borderline sour quality. Nice round mouthfeel that almost has a velvety characteristic. Malty with dark fruit at the finish. Pretty solid but others in the St. Bernardus family are better.

Served out of a bottle at Mac's house. Dark red color with medium white head. Sweet plum aroma. Medium to light body. Raisin plum sweet flavor but weaker than other St. Bernardus beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

meireteixeira (159) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAY 10, 2015
Cor marrom clara, turva. Espuma boa, bege e cremosa. Aroma de caramelo, fermento e alcoólico. Paladar levemente alcoólico, caramelo, toffee e ameixa preta. Vivaz. Um verdadeiro espetáculo!!!!

Plums, stone fruit, with some spice. Clean and a bit thin but classic dubbel. Beautiful malt character.

beeebon (303) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2015
Pours a dark chestnut brown initially with big foamy tan head which quickly goes. Aroma is initially a noticable cola type smell followed by berry type fruits and figs, doughy yeast and cereal malt with a slight herbal presence. Taste is initially sweet then sour and bitter, nicely balanced. Lively carbonation and slick feel. Very nice Abbey Dubbel beer!

Hamirubi (310) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 2, 2015
33cl bottle at home. A mild, even light and good to drink Belgian dubbel. It is a bit of a minor beer in the St. Bernardus series. Yet as a dubbel, a very lovely drink with well balanced sweet bitterness flavours - and of course with the so typical chestnut scents and brown sugar notes.

Butelka, warka do 08-04-16. Bardzo bujna, wysoka, ladna i dosc powoli opadajaca piana, lekko kremowa. samo piwo miedziano-brazowe, lekko metne. Aromaty ciemnych owocow, w tym glownie suszonych (rodzynki), slodowe, lekka przyprawowosc, troche alkoholu, troche karmelu Jednym slowem: dublowo ;) w smaku wiekszosc nut z aromatu jest odczuwalnych (moze poza przyprawami), lekko w slodka strone w miodowy sposob, z deikatnym szczypaniem nieniskiego wysycenia.goryczki wlasciwie brak, jednak "w zamian" czuc troche alkoholu - w nieirytujacy sposob. Niemalo ciala. Bardzo gladkie, kremowe w odczuciu. wyjatkowo "lekkie" w piciu. bardzo dobre piwo, najwyzsza polka dubbli. z 8mka z tego browaru przegrywa w kategorii intensywnosci, zwlaszcza owocowej, ale wygrywa wlasnie ta lekkoscia, pijalnoscia.

Update a propos food-pairing - zupelnie nie pasuje do camamberta - w polaczeniu z nim staje sie kwasne :)

Nez sur le pain de segle, corps moyen, amertume présente, on sent bien le sucre candi, une belge qui a du charme!

330 mL bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA. Murky brown pour with a foamy off-white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast and light cola. Nice flavor of dark fruit, candi sugar, and light chocolate. A very easy to drink Belgian dubbel.
