Nice amber pour with an off-white head. Sweet dark fruits with a bit of spice, some banana, and some toasted malt and toffee. A bit of yeast on the finish. The malt sweetness translates quite well to the flavor. A lot of toffee, toasted malt, and caramel. Moderate fruit notes of raisin and banana. Just a bit of clove spiciness.

11.2oz bottle poured into St. Bernardus goblet. Aged, with a 18-12-14 best by date. Pours a murky brown color with a lot of sediment. A medium sized head that dissipates to a thin crown with some lacing left behind. Smell is of caramel malt, clove, and yeasty with dark fruit esters. Taste is heavy on the malt and dark fruits, mainly plums and figs. A good amount of spice from the yeast and a bit on the sweet side, but not overly, nicely balanced. Mouthfeel is medium-light, smooth and creamy. Overall, an excellent dubbel. Easy drinking and delicious.

Molt bona cervesa del estil Abbey Ale, tot i que, no arriba a ser com una bona quàdruple. És molt recomanable.

Pours brown with small off white. Nutty aroma with something metallic. Taste is nutty with a hint of dark fruits. Good brown ale.

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2014
A dark amber/brown beer, slightly cloudy and well carbonated. It has a thin foamy head, a good swirl will produce an abundance of surface foam that’s pleasing to look at. A smell a complex malt bill that is sweet with candied sugar. Drinks with warming alcohol sweet malts and candied plums. A thin light mouthfeel. A good beer with lower more acceptable abv’s meaning that I can drink a few, no problem.

Bottle at Tokishirasu, Kyoto. Dark muddy amber, fine thin head. Aroma of sticky malt, cola lozenge. Fine mouthfeel. Flavoursome, but not overly sticky. Light date, molasses, and fruity candy. Pretty good.

Pours a clouded amber with frothy lacing tan head. Notes of honey, a bit of stonefruit, yeast and hints of banana. Taste is moderately sweet with a bit of wood and a dry full finish.

nudiebear (35) - 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.
