Aroma is nice with a malty scent. Appearance is reddish brown with a decent head. Flavor is sour with a wheat and apple punch. Palate is somewhat thin but flavorful. Good Abbey with a unique flavor.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This dubbel pours a dark, murky, brown color with a small, mostly diminishing, tan head. The aroma is fruity and slightly sour with some yeastiness. Medium body with medium carbonation, the palate is smooth and the flavor is fruity with hints of apples, yeasts, and malts. This one has a very interesting flavor. The beer is smooth and quite drinkable, it is one of the better dubbels I have had.

very good dark abbey beer. I got a hold of two bottles of this last christmas, never seen it since.. It was a bit malty, tiny hint of fruit. It had a very nice aroma.. I will re-rate this when I get a chance of having this delicious beer again

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, dark ruby red colored, nice big head that was mostly diminshing, but it did leave a nice, thin white layer behind. Musty, cobweb-y aroma, like walking into an infrequently used room in your grandmother's house. Aroma also has a touch of Bazooka Joe bubblegum intermingled. Alcohol smell is detectable after a long, deep sniff. Mildly fruity in flavor. When it warms, alcohol is definitely present in the middle and finish, leaving the mouth tingly like after using mouthwash. I only recommend drinking this at a slightly chilled temperature.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear dark amber coloured beer with a medium light brown head. A rather straight forward beer but maybe a bit flat. It has a slightly roasted taste. This beer is sort of ok but nothing you would remember.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750ml Bottle. Not a bad dubbel. Found this a little more carbinated that some dubbels I've had. Had a prune taste in the beginning which I didn't care for. (Don't like prunes), Did fade after awhile.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33CL Bottle. Dark slightly hazy brown orange. with a full tan head. Bananas, raspberries, toffee and light chocolate aromas. Very fizzy feel. Malt and and light floral hops flavors. Mild notes of darker fruits. While quite good, I just do no get very excited about most dubbels... Somewhat like red/amber ales while flavorful just nothing to really stir the senses.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thick and malty - full of dark fruits and bread dough. The palate was thick and chewy (after it warmed - at first the carbonation was too prickly - needed to reach almost room temp) Finish was more dry than sweet and didn't last very long, which seemed appropriate. Deep dark brown - I expected a lighter color(?) - tan head.
