Murky brown color, thin off-white head. Aroma of malt, alcohol and fruits, itís woody too. Flavor of chocolate, fruits, caramel and malt. Light to medium body, creamy texture. It feels like a mix between Rochefort 8 and St. Bernardus ABT 12, not bad at all!

Just like itís bit brother. Little to distinguish this brew from other belgian strong ales. Very little complexity and just not that great.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Bottle: Pours dark honey/amber brown with a small-medium off-white head. Hazy, small bubbles and small yeast particles. Aroma: Dust, earth, toasted grains, mild wood, sweet yeast, figs, raisins, mildly spicy notes, dark syrupy malts. Taste: Warming flavor, sweet candy, raisins, apples, plums, nuts, light spicy yeasts, caramel, finishes with a dry & bitter molasses taste. I like the fruit background that I canít quite put my finger on.

Metalhead (633) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - NOV 6, 2004
This was still quite young being 2 1/2 years from BB date. Poured a hazy daerkish brown with a fairly decent pillowy head. Aroma of semi sweet chocolate,mild malt,yeast dark fruits(raisens,dried plums,black cheeries.) Add in some bits of spice ala Aventinus as it warmed on the flavor.Almost creamy mouthfeel. Best dubbel Iíve had so far.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2004
Deep dark cherrywood with a tall sturdy crown that starts as foam but resonates down to healthy head of a 8th inch bubbly/frothy whipped light tan topping. Leaves tons of lacing coating the glass. Aroma is dry of light earthyness along with some yeasty esters of flowers and light spice.with a strong fruity sense of figs, raisins, and dark cherries keeping a lush and full sweet edge over the top. Flavors ensue a pleasurable display of fruits displayed from the aroma with dry little spices. Firm, steardy, and steady with a full taste brigade from start to finish. Sweet and chewy finish late with bits of candied fruits and a light textured nuttyness. A great taster. Feel is creamy and nearly full with some light drying effects floating around and finishes terrific with a super yummy and smooth exhibition of chewy fruits and earthly delights. Another fine drinker by St. Bernardnus.

pours dark brown with a fair-sized head. Spicy aroma. Sweet, slightly fruity flavor. Hardly any aftertaste. No alcohol detectable. Pretty good.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2008 [33 cl. bottle] Dark brown color with an off-white head. Light aroma of yeast, roasted malts and some spicy notes. Very sweet and complex flavor. Begins with a sweet and spicy mixed flavor followed by a nice yeasty middle and a sweet and warming finish. Very creamy mouthfeel and leaves a slight aftertaste of yeast and fruits.

This one like all the Bernardus beers really need to age. This brew is fine, it has all what I want in a beer, I would like to see this brew with a bit more character though .
