Deep amber color, toasty toffee/caramel nose, with layers of soft malt and hops. A big beer without being heavy. Extremely well balanced. Brewed under license of the Duinen Monestary by the family owned Huyghe-Melle Brewery.

Hazy nutbrown to reddish with medium beige head, that turns into decent stable layer. Aroma.. intense bready, bonbon, bit hoppy and moderate malty. Yeasty. Sweet with bit of sourness. Decent brew, for me it was something interesting that I would like to repeat. Good price/performance

zenkis (577) - Ogre, LATVIA - JAN 17, 2013
Pours deep hazy brown-reddish with white creamy nice head, a bit line type lacy on glass. Aroma is sour-sweet, very sweet fruit, bong-bong like, some tones of ginger, vanilla, yeasty. Taste is sweet, very light sour, in late stages comes a bit bitter from hops. Finish is mild dry. Good body. Overall very nice beer after bitter example, a bit confusing about style. But liked it.

Deepest ruby, almost black; off white bubbly uneven head; smells tannic and vinous, a little yeasty, enticing; well carbonated; a little spice next to sugary malt and plummy fruit; on the thin side; too sweet; average Belgian

jerohen (2010) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2012
Bottled, gift from my mother (fascinating to see she knows exactly which beers i haven’t had before). Dark brown colored, lasting brown head. Malty nose, toffee, molasses, iron. Initially sweet flavor, some iron again, then finally some roasted malts shining through (a bit like Westmalle dubbel), perhaps far in the distance even some Flemish sour features. Somewhat bitter finish. A bit heavy for a dubbel. A nice, but non-spectacular Belgian dubbel.

MrHangover (2524) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2012
Bottle. Huge gusher, directly after slightly opening the bottle. Got everything in the glass with all of the sediment as well. Cloudy brownish colour without any head. Sweet aroma, full of molasses and cookie spices. Some caramel detected. Flavour is sweet and it lacks complexity. Flat body, must be because of the gusher that all the carbo went flying. Ok beer, would like to try another bottle, see if it doesn’t do the gusher.

Russo (1685) - Campinas, BRAZIL - JUL 17, 2012
Bottled 33cl. Brown reddish color with a very nice tan head.. The aroma has coconut and blueberry hints. Sweet malty taste where coconut is the strongest falvor. The alcohol is nicely hidden. quite fruity and high carbonation and dry mouthfeel.
