Hamirubi (203) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAY 2, 2015
33cl bottle at home. A medium strong Belgian dubbel, high in carbon, brown sugar sweetness, some vanilla too. Full of character, with some earthy flavours and forest fruits. Not as classic and overwhelming as the quadrupple, but something to have on the beer map, for sure.

Franckg (340) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2015
Gushing infernal à l’ouverture qui m’a fait perdre le quart de la bouteille. Le liquide est d’un brun foncé trouble, plusieurs particules en suspension. Col de mousse généreux qui dégage des effluves de levures épicées. Arômes de baies confites, cassonade, anis, raisins secs et pruneaux. En bouche, goût de fruits rouges jeunes, cassonade, anis. Finale assez brève et fade où survit un léger côté acidulé. Texture un peu mince et faible effervescence, surement dû à l’explosion du début. Dommage car le goût est là mais elle a perdue de son caractère.

Erasmus_ro (1675) - Alabama, USA - APR 26, 2015
Bottle. Pours a deep auburn red with a medium, large-bubbled, beige head. Aroma is marzipan yeast, dark fruit, light green apple, dried dark fruit. Taste is marzipan, dark ripe fruits. Semi sweet with a herbal finish. Fairly full, low carbonation.

scotchzombie (401) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 24, 2015
Pours deep chestnut brown and bubbly with a foamy off-white head that fades quickly to a ring and coating. Aroma is nutty, some mild darkfruit, earth and yeast. Taste largely follows - earthy malted grains and light flavors of plum and cherry. Quite fizzy and more yeast and grain than sweetness. Nicely balanced, but less complexity of flavor than some other Belgian greats. Alcohol is hidden pretty well.

degbert (1300) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2015
Bottle. Pours a deep red-brown with a high, light ecru, blown-insulation head. (Seriously, this head looks,like you could WALK on it. Nose is wheat bread dough, dark fruit, spice -- wait -- Irish soda bread? Yeah. Like that. Heavy and smoky on the tongue, with boozy and tawny Port notes; it doesn’t, however, manage to overpower, providing an interesting balancing act. Finish is long, warm, and flavorful. Delicious.
