A classic and a great example of a fine Belgian dubbel beer. Sweet, malty, yeasty and spicy.

Tstamba (312) - Maryland, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle to a snifter. Chestnut brown with thin tan head and lacing. Sweet maltiness, dark fruit, a bit of funk... Flavor is complex, plum, hazelnut, chocolate and spice. Well balanced and delicious.

Vignale (2059) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2014
Flaska från Beernavigator. Brunmurrig, relativt klar, beiget krämigt skum som bildar lock. Maltig och jästig lätt kryddig doft med mycket vörtkaraktär. Lätt, måttlig sötma för stilen, mycket vörtkaraktär, tydlig kryddig beska som klingar ut in i en fin eftersmak. En lätt trevlig dubbel som är välbalanserad och framförallt inte så söt vilket jag gillar, å andra sidan saknar jag lite fruktighet.

lamf (75) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark amber with quite huge white head. Aroma of dark fruits, raisins. Not so intensive. Taste is really balanced, sweet notes, but in a good way, something like confects... Highly carbonated.

It has a dark brownish red colored body with a light haze and some yeast floaters. This is capped by a light beige head of frothy light foam. From the pour it left some yeast sediment on top of the head which looks like a dusting of cinnamon. The head hangs on well, slowly fading as I drink and making some nice lacing on the glass. There are fruity and estery yeast notes of raisins and apple peel with a slight hint of spice and funk. This is all comes with a nice sweet bready maltiness as well. Wow, moving on to taste this one has good complexity with fruity and spicy yeast, sweet bready and nutty malts. I get notes of cocoa powder blending with notes of walnuts and hazel nuts like Nutella within the sweet bready maltiness. Fruity notes remind me of raisins and as it warms I get some cherry as well. Hops are light and help to balance with mild bitterness and dryness in the finish. The palate has a solid medium body with mild carbonation. This beer has wonderful complexity and drinkability
