Emeister84 (862) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Prominent fruity aromas of raisins, cherries, and apples, with some subtle chocolatey and nutty scents. The appearance of liquid ebony, with dark ruby highlights, and a decently retaining, khaki head foam. Sweet with some savory elements, caramel and molasses flavors, and some tartness as well. Full bodied with spicy, lively carbonation, and finishes with refreshing fruity and malty tones, and some presence of alcohol strength. Rich, smooth, spicy, and complex.

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

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

nudiebear (29) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2014
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.

chinchill (1617) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 26, 2014
On tap at the Atlanta Yard House. A: clear dark amber with a good beige head. Aroma: loads of dark fruit aromas including dates and raisins. Slight boozy with some nice spicy and bready aspects to the lingering aftertaste. Flavor: Sweet up front turning bitter-sweet by the finish. Very fruity as is the aroma. Feel: medium body; proper carbonation.

Lele (84) - ITALY - JUN 23, 2014
Eccellente esempio di dubbel, dai chiari sentori fruttati, maltati e caramellati, con accenni soprattutto di ciliegia e prugna.

adster (120) - HUNGARY - JUN 22, 2014
Mélyvörös színben pompázó apátsági remekmű, mely rendkívül titokzatosan kezd, illata legalábbis meglehetősen visszafogott, alig árul el valamit a főzetről. Édeskésen hömpölyög a szánkba, melyet a tapasztalás útján egy pörkölt malátás aroma követ, amúgy belgásan, végül némi komló jelenléte zárja a sort. Az ízek azonban annyira együtt vannak, hogy szétválasztani és külön kiemelni őket felesleges volna, tökéletesen összetett, masszív darab.

SamP01 (539) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Pours dark cloudy brown amber with a large beige lasting head, some mild lacing. Dark dry fruit and Belgian yeast as well as some mild fruity alcohol ester fill the senses. Taste is mild toasted caramel malt followed by a mix of dark dry fruit and Belgian yeast, bread notes. Palate is a medium body, smooth mouth feel with good carbonation. Dry fruit, yeast and bread notes with mildly toasted caramel malt and alcohol on the end. A very well made and nicely balanced brew.
