My wife is away so I’m numbing the pain with delicious beverage treats. This is my Chimay Red upgrade. It’s dark and cloudy with a good head that fades fairly quickly. I was pretty impressed with the appearance...lots of cool floaties. The aroma is of dark fruits and roasty. Sweet on the tongue and pretty dry. A full-bodied dubbel. I’m a fan. But, then again, I like dubbel’s.

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 (1602) - 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 (82) - 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 (537) - 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.

ippopotamo36 (115) - - JUN 18, 2014
0,33 bottle purchased in Rome. It pours a typical abbey/dubbel reddish brown, frothy ivory head which quickly dissipates and leaves a lacing. Nose is dry fruit (prunes), amber malts and caramel. In the mouth this beer offers a nice feel: yeast, light caramel feel and bitter sharp cut which cleans the mouth in the end. Very dry end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

slawek (90) - Kraków, POLAND - JUN 17, 2014
Bottle. Brown, clear with small particles. Big head, gusing. Aroma: Pretty weak, I expected someting more intense. Alcohol, caramel, dark fruits, yeasts, bread. Sweet taste. Flavor of bread, caramel with alcoholic finish. Full budy, high carbonation. I expected someting great from this classic beer. Maybye it is not a good day for a beer :)
