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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Dfonorow (1217) - 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.
