330ml bottle into a goblet. Pours a slightly hazy dark brown due to the sediment that got into the glass with a half finger fluffy white head. Really good head retention and decent lacing. Aroma is a little bit weak but I really can pick out brown sugar and vanilla. There is also a slightly musty odor but it is more complimentary than it is distracting. The brown sugar is more muted in the flavor allowing the the banana/clove Belgian yeast character to shine through. More vanilla that is subdued but there is a noticeable lack of complexity compared to some other versions of the style. Mouthfeel is on the watery side with a little bit of stickyness left on the finish. Overall, I am not very impressed by this Dubbel. It really lacks complexity and depth of flavor along with a weak mouthfeel. I feel like this could be a whole lot better with a little bit of work.

Bottle - pours brown with small beige head. Aroma is sugar, Apple’s and cereal malt. Taste is sweet with a bit of spice up front, then a lingering burnt sugar finish. Palate is very fizzy.

Bottle 330ml. Cloudy brownish-copper with big frothy beige head. Yeasty aroma with notes of fruity yogurt and dried fruits, bready. Sweet flavor, yeasty with notes of yogurt, dried fruits and bread, sourish lemony finish, slightly boozy. Medium to full-bodied. Nice.

Fles uit St. Bernardus bierpakket, gekregen voor mijn verjaardag. Uitgeschonken in de bijbehorende originele Sint Bernadus bokaal. Enigszins troebel donkerbruin bier, met een vrij kleine beige schuimkraag, die zich terugtrekt. Aroma’s van; karamel, toffee, rozijnen, lichte chocolade, zwarte peper, kruidnagel en nootachtige accenten met een licht zuurtje. Het smaakpallet is vrij zoet en vol van karamel, vruchtencake en donker fruit, rozijnen, pruimen en vijgen. Verder wat tonen van chocolade, en een licht zuurtje, Belgische gist met een licht kruidige afdronk van peper. Stevige carbonatie en medium body, volle en complexe smaak, het alcoholpercentage lijkt hoger dan het is. Een uitstekende Dubbel, een voorbeeld in zijn stijl deze Pater 6. St. Bernardus maakt uitstekende klassieke Belgische bieren, gebalanceerd en smaakvol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great example of the style, with the yeast and dark malts interacting to give plenty of flavour. I get raisin, some clove, light soy and fruit cake. Dark wood colour, thin off-white head. Body is medium full and creamy. Very good.

Nice dark color. Alcoholic Roma the first taste was astounding. The love affair didn’t last a little bit bitter with a bitter aftertaste, slight malt flavor somewhat busy on the tongue

A light dusky aroma of clove, and raisins. Pours a cloudy brown with a lasting foamy tan head. A light raisin taste, slightly sweet taste with a medium body. A sweet fruity finish.

Looks just like a cola. Quite carbonated. Taste is a bit excessively sweet. A bit spicy.

Lovely fruity, caramel and yeast nose on this rich brown brew. Mild bitter note with sweet caramel malts, bready yeast, and dried fruit. That’s it. It’s good. Back to drinking it.
