11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy ruddy orange-brown color. Produces a beautiful huge, fluffy and rocky tan head which maintains a 1/4" thickness throughout the glass. Quite intense and pleasant aromas of fresh baked wheat rolls, yeast, ripe pears/apples, caramel candies, toffee along with faint hints of buckwheat honey, spices, charred oak and alcohol. Palate is full and round combining a nice spritzy carbonation with an enjoyable chewy texture. Flavor profile seems a bit more reserved compared to the aroma, but still quite good. Notes of sweet Belgian crystal malts, light brown sugar, caramel, toffee, spices, fresh dark wheat bread and ripe light fruits are savored. Finish shows just a quick hit of hops and alcohol, but unfortunately tends to fade out fast leaning toward some thiness in the end. All in all a well done Belgain Dubble and would certainly visit this again.

Thanks to secret Santa for this one. 12oz bottle. Hazy, murky, chunky, caramel colored brew. The aroma is heavy with dates, raison bread and sweet malt. The flavor is similar with bread, dates, yeasty malt, light fruit and perhaps hints of sherry. Chewy body. A solid brew. Glad Iím having this one at my tasting next month.

Malty, with some sour notes in the aroma. The flavor was most noticeably of malts, with raisin, yeast, a little spice. Undoubtedly good, but not the best of the Belgians.

Bottle. First impression was a good slightly hazy amberish pour with the typical foamy head. The aroma seemed a bit sour and dry, not the sweet maltiness I am accustomed to. At first the taste was a bit more sour than others, maybe a bit prunish or raiseny. Definitely not as good as the 12, but good nonetheless.

Rich. Malty. Have had on tap and in the bottle. While not the original recipe, still a Belgian favorite.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2009 Strong thick malty aroma. Tan frothy head with thick brown body, very impressive thickness to the head. Strong malty flavor as well. Well carbonated. Light bitter dried fruit accents. Good malt heavy beer with a decent duration.

Bottle. Pours a hazy brown with a large fluffy off white head with nice lacing. A nice big of flavor and aroma of malt, dark fruits, yeast some faint hints of chocolate. A nice finish that is somewhat thick on the tongue.

Bottle, poures a hazy dark brown with a thick head. Nice aromas of malts, yeast, fruits, brown sugar. Very similar to the Pater 6. I wonder if they do the same as Rochefort and just make 3 strengths of the same beer? Either way, nice flavor, spicy yeast that marries with the rich maltiness and flavors of dried fruits. Wonderful mouthfeel and a lingering finish. Very nice beer.
