kevinsenn (1854) - Waterloo, Ontario, - FEB 9, 2013
Bottle shared by yrcrz - thanks! Pours cloudy and brown with a thin head. Aroma is sweet and malty with some cheese and spice. Taste has delicate malt and spices. Plenty of sweetness, and some vanilla too. Clean finish. A fine Dubbel.

Lively out the bottle, a deep dark mahogany with a tan lingering head. Smells of roasted treacle and malt. Has a thick oily texture which coats your mouth and lasts well. Taste of sweet malt and loveliness.

RickFifty (933) - Fredrikstad, NORWAY - APR 29, 2016
Mahogany brown color, beige creamy head. Marzipan nose, Belgian yeast, candi sugar, raisins, hint of anise. Belgian yeast taste, candi sugar, caramel malt, hint of alcohol and dried fruit. Full to medium body, average to soft carbonation.

Brown color. Lots of carbonation. Metalic, yeasty (like the bottom of barreling bucket after primary fermentation), some caramel deep in there, some nuttiness, has a funky lactobacillus smell, but no sourness in flavor. Actually not that pleasant smelling to be truthful, but opens up as it sits in the glass a bit. Rich, caramel flavor, clear clove notes. Vanilla. A roasted and phenolic bitter finish. Leaves mouth numb. A good dubbel, but #1 of the style? Not in my opinion.

huineman (517) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 19, 2016
Pours dark liver, with tan head. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, blackberry, tobacco. Powerful, oily, mouth-covering. Nice umami and sour mouthfeel, almost no bitterness. Medium-persistence finish.

bartlebier (3188) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 12, 2016
Recent and less recent samples, mainly 33cl bottles, here bb08/2019 (BL1). Aromatic 2-day old, leavened currant brown bread/rozijnenbrood smeared with sirop de Ličge boldly hop-bittered for balance with fennel, mustard seed - pours like half a Westflemish dish in a glass, attenuated to older fruit caramel dryness.

PapaVillum (813) - Valby, DENMARK - APR 11, 2016
Mahognifarvet Kloster Ale/Abbey Dubbel med større offwhite skumtop på 4-5 cm. Svinder til snelandskaber og lander på et par mm. Rolig og ufiltreret. Sød aroma af tørret frugt er det første næsen møder. Dernæst gærnoter. Ganske rig smag, som indeholder pæn stor bitterhed. Og ligeledes en anseelig sødme. Dejligt balanceret. En anelse beskhed i slutningen. Fyldig krop og solidt karboneret. Olieret konsistens og bittersød afslutning. Overall: Velsmagende, lidt humlet, Dubbel i yderst god balance. Værdig lillebror til Abt 12'eren. 33 cl, flaske, 8.0 % ABV, BB: 06/10/19, købt i Den Belgiske Ølbutik i Vanløse. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Grisza77 (441) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 10, 2016
Brunatne w refleksach rubinowe piwo o dość obfitej pianie, która powoli redukuje się do zera. Aromat intensywny, rodzynki, ciemne winogrona. W smaku lekko kwaskowe od ciemnych słodów i owocowe, bardzo smaczne, typowo belgijskie. Goryczka konkretna, ziołowa. Ogólnie klasyka Belgii w najlepszym wydaniu, piwo bardzo ułożone, wszystko w nim gra.

likeatrainwreck (377) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2016
Dark brown and hazy with a dense tan head. To me this is a small version of the St Bernardus Abt... all the same flavours... bread, red fruit, bubblegum, banana, yeast... just less complex and easier drinking. Really good.

Ritzn (72) - Bavaria, GERMANY - APR 3, 2016
A yellow-brown dark liquid with little beige head. Aroma is freshly baked sponge cake, plums, caramel. Some spices as well. Taste was sour and not much else. Not the expected malty sweetness, that the aroma seems to predict. Additionally some alcohol warmth. Full body with medium finish. Overall likable, but the taste was somewhat disappointing.
