I think the Tripel is a better choice of the two. As noted, this one has a flavor dominated by alcohol.

330 ml bottle. Very dark amber, pretty clear, with a huge and bubbly off white head which dissipated rather quickly. On the nose dark fruits, burnt caramel, mild milk chocolate, light herbs/spices, some alchool notes. Well, I’m not surprised, but that’s 4 out of 4 way too over carbonated St, Idesbald beers. Slightly sour, quite sweet and malty. Some brown sugar and light chocolate in the aftertaste. Lively to fizzy carbonation, light to medium body, oily texture. Not entirely bad after 15-20 minutes in the glass, as the fizziness become way lower.

Non mi aspettavo molto, ed invece la nostra si rivela particolarmente bevibile. Aspetto, naso e sapore tutto nella norma dello stile.

Douberd (2296) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 12, 2014
(St. Idesbald Dubbel) Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 8% Brown colour on the body with deep ruby shades when hold against the light. Tall and thin beige head, with okay retention, leaving spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel, dark fruits, chocolate, sour touches. Very sour taste, I think something is wrong here. Sour grapes, hints f chocolate. Medium body, very high carbonation. Not a good one, totally not what I expected from a dubbel.

Een dubbel met een goede, stevige smaak zoals een donker bier hoort te zijn.

MrGGen (308) - ITALY - AUG 16, 2014
Anche questa presa al discount. Versa marrone scuro, con spumosa e poco durevole schiuma beige. Aroma di pane,lievito,caramello,cioccolata e frutta secca.Non esageratamente carbonata come la Triple, ma se vogliamo piů alcoolica(forse troppo, ma con Huyghe sembra essere la loro cifra!!!). In bocca č un pň acida,con caramello, liquirizia e frutti di bosco in sottofondo. Finale fruttato e un pň acido(ancora!) con liquirizia e spezia. Accettabile,anche se un pň troppo alcool.

Bottle. Hazy deep aber color with a medium thick foamy beige head. Aroma of dried fruits, toffee, berries, cellar and malt. Balanced taste; sweetness, sourness and bitterness in a good balance. Medium body.

adster (345) - HUNGARY - JUN 21, 2014
Egyedülálló, fanyar ízvilág. Mintha csak bort kortyolgatnánk és szaglásznánk. A benne munkálkodó élesztő megtette a hatását: erősen szénsavas, olyannyira, hogy a palack felnyitásakor habja szinte teljes mértékben elszökött, némiképp rontva az összképet, ezzel is teljesebbé téve azonban a boros benyomást, még ha nem is szándékoltan. Az idő előrehaladtával egyébként a száraz felől egyre inkább közeledik az édes vörösbor irányába. Ez az ízhatás annyira meglepő és ámulatba ejtő, hogy teljes mértékben lekötötte a figyelmem. A különböző ízjegyek kutatása már erőltetettnek tűnne, így a magam részéről mindenképpen ezt a sajátosságát tekinteném a típus esszenciájának.
