Dry grapey aroma. Dark muddy brown body, tannish head. Taste is bright with carbonation then drops to a deep malty finished with a slight sour. Very well balanced and complex. The flavor builds after the sip, oddly similar to a scotch. Quite interesting.

Transfer from BA review on 8-8-12 - Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance – Served a medium deep reddish-brown color with a light haze and a one finger white head. The head faded over time to give a medium level of lacing. Smell – The aroma is heaviest of dark fruit aromas of prune, raisin, fig, and some cherry. These sweeter fruit flavors are also complimented by some aromas of a bready malt as well as some molasses. Overall the aroma is sweet and delicious. Taste – The taste begins more on the maltier side with hints of a roasted malt and brown bread. These flavors quickly sweeten as the dark fruit flavors that were detected in the nose come to the tongue. These tastes are mixed with a caramel and molasses flavor which greatly sweeten the profile. At the end of the taste, some boozy and vanilla flavors meet the tongue and take the taste to the end. Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the slightly higher side with some nice creaminess and has a carbonation level being just below average. Overall – A tasty brew, but in comparison to its bigger brother 12 it is nothing to really pine for. For the dubbel style it is more towards the top of the line, but not the best out there (at least in my opinion)

micronaut129 (241) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2014
pours a nice chestnut color with about an average foamy head. The head itself is rather dense just not very tall. Nicely carbonated. Foam fades but the carbonation always keeps a wispy ring floating on top. I get a rich malt aroma topped by candied sugar. Rich and malty tasting with candied sugar yeast and fruity essence, maybe candied plumes. Alcohol taste is bold and in your face. Luckily the ABV’s are at a more moderate level for this light weight. A medium to full bodied beer with a drier finish.

Pours a dark brown body with a thick head. Malty aroma and a rich, complex and very nice taste. Well hidden alcohol compared to the abt 12.

Sweet, malty Christmas cake on the nose. Well carbonated to give this an initially light feel followed by a toffee ice cream finish. A very good, fruity Belgium classic ale. Rated by BrewTom

jmcgavin12 (482) - Madison, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Pours a deep chestnut. with one finger of lacing tan head. Aroma is dense with yeast, dark bread, stonefruit, and a bit of hop. Taste follows suit with a moderate to heavy sweetness. Spicy yeast, a full body, and soft carbonation. One great beer

Bottle at home. Slightly darker than Pater 6, just as lively and easily identifiable Belgian style. Nose improved. Major note is still malt and the taste is still bubbly and balanced. Very enjoyable.
