oh6gdx (20334) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 9, 2005
Bottled. Reddish brown colour, mediumsized beige head. Dark berries (black currant) and maybe some winegums (?, the non-raters at the table said so...). Also alcohol present, but fits in very well. Sweet aftertaste, and sticky palate. A bit barleywineish hints over it.

omhper (19383) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2003
Bottled, named St. Idesbald Dubbel.
Served in ceramic soup cup at Turisthotellet, Ljungskile, Sweden, which is, or at least has been one of the best beer drinking spots in Scandinavia, as they've boosted a selection of 400+ Belgian beers and a wonderful location overviewing the fjord. Sadly the place is now up for sale, and the beer selection is being cut back a lot. This beer is nut brown and seet with toffee and syrup. The mouthfeel is clean, hard and sharp and the finish short and roasty. Sub-par, like most Huyghe's beers.

fiulijn (14609) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2005
Dark amber color. Some malt aroma and yeasty fruitness. Quite good maltiness, a lot of caramel, but a bit metallic at the end. Too much commercial, typical Huyghe…
