Bière double, d’abbaye certes, mais largement surcotée sur le site... Signalons à ce propos que les cotes belges les plus hautes sont à 4 et 3,9 … ceci nuance sérieusement le propos !! Couleur brun très foncé, roux en transparence. Beaucoup de levures en suspension, malgré un grand calme au décapsulage. Bulles assez fines partout, moyennement vives. Mousse beige moyen, crémeuse, qui tient vers 3 mm. Arômes de cassonade, caramel, toffee, laurier thym, avoine, levure. 1ère bouche assez structurée en texture, sur des épices, pointe d’anis et de rhubarbe. Arrière-bouche maltée un peu fumée. 2ème bouche tombe sur un mauvais assemblage malt/épices, avec un côté fade. 3ème avec de l’herbe, du foin, des endives et de la purée... Arrière-bouche très contrariée. La longueur ne décante rien, elle est fade, terne, assez aigre. La levure est très faible, crue. L’alcool est assez banal, de style pils. La finale ne peut porter ce nom. CONCLUSION : cette bière se limite à un nez de départ assez correct, le reste ne vaut pas grand chose. Grandes irrégularités, grands déséquilibres. Fadeur, platitude,aigreur. Que dire ?

ST247 (376) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle @home. Pours red/brown with off-white foam. Fruity, spicy aroma. Taste has a little sourness, watery, bit metallic. Easy to drink, but forgettable.

JanLaursen (3063) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 20, 2014
Flaske, 33 cl. Grumset rød-brunlig med et lavt, vagt boblende off-white skumhovede. Tørrede frugter i spandevis. Svesker. Dadler. Gær. Malt. Smager faktisk ok. - i små doser. Sød men i god balance.

prawlie (1141) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2014
33 cL bottle into an Affligem glass. Very dark brown with a fair head. Fruity, spiced aroma. Spiced, fruity, different. Sort of an abbey bitter. Very sweet, with a slight sourness. Quite good in its own way.

Slightly sour red fruit flavour, apples and caramel. A bit tart for a dubbel. Aroma is fruity bananas and malt. Mild carbo and thin palate for the style.

Dfonorow (1419) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Pour is dark amber with a quickly disappearing head. Light caramel malts with some roast on the nose. Flavor is similar but with a slight sour/bitterness in the finish. A little spicy, strange.
