nudiebear (29) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle at home. This struck me as a typical Belgian brew. Persistent head, bubbly carbonation, malty nose, slightly sweet and bitter taste. Fairly strong in alcohol compared with the other elements.

Buona dubbel, anche se assolutamente non ai livelli della sua sorella Prior 8 e di quella di La Trappe. Comunque, da provare.

0,33 bottles purchased in Rome. Pours hazy chestnut skin color, creamy and tick ivory head which lasts long. Typical dubbel oily appearance. The nose is full of spicy notes, prunes and surprisingly grassy light notes. Mouth: not much of sweet notes but rather bitter overall feel along with malty notes and coconut aftertaste. Round feel of a balanced beer in perfect style. I assume that drunk at room temperature and with a bit of aging this beer offers it's best. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

Aroma: prunes, dark berries, caramel malts. Appearance: dark hazy brown, medium light beige frothy head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: caramel sweets, bread malts, light bitters lingering in the background, yet sweets dominate. Overall: fantastic Abbey Dubbel, great aroma and palate. Bottle from Beer of Belgium, Ypres.
