Just poured this one out, unfortunately no trappist glass. This thing pours out with a massive full head lasting several minutes. Very nice clear mahogany color. Smells incredible like a faint rochefort 6, apple and spice. Taste is excellent a beautiful brown with hints of apple and excellent spices. Pretty well balanced. Comparative to a trappist.

Dark color; creamy head. A good malt and chocolate beer, with low bitterness, and light signs of oxidisation. Quite good still.

Deep amber colour, generous and thick head, misty, turbulent perlage. Wonderful aroma, fresh, malty, porto wine notes, analogies with a barley wine aroma. Good malty body, less strong that the strength may suggest, good balance and good palate, not too much aromatic.

Variety (28) - BELGIUM - JAN 21, 2004
Tasty, sweet (but not overly so) and a pleasure in the mouth. Discovered this one lately and am enjoying it immensely. The 7.5% alc is not overbearing. I'd call it a tasty everyday winter brew.

Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2004
Malty rich sweet aroma, Belgian yeast, neutral fruits, some raisin. Dark brown red hazy with light tan lacing head. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Starts sweet and malty, with light chocolate and toffee. No acidity. Segways into some light smooth bitterness that complements the sweetness. After is nutty dryness with toffee. Alcohol taste and some warming, too. A nice dubbel.

Bottle. A testament to the maturity of this site is the fact that we have a beer named "Fagnes" and no one has made fun of it...jeez, TimE and I were laughing hysterically. Not that there’s anything wrong wit...yeah. The aroma has a nice woody and somewhat Christmas-y offering. The flavor is okay but it doesn’t quite live up to the great aroma, possibly in part because of the too-thin mouthfeel. Some maple notes, chocolate, faint nectarines; very sweet. A decent brew.

fonefan (36036) - VestJylland, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2007
Draught @ 9th Belgian Beer Weekend, Brussels. Unclear medium to dark brown color with a large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, beige head. Aroma is moderate yeasty, moderate malty, roasted, licorice. Flavor is moderate sweet and light bitter with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. (010907)

Ernest (6353) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 23, 2002
Head is initially huge, frothy, rocky, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy dark orange-brown, dense tiny particles, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (cookie, caramel), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of coriander, tangerine, licorice, clove, and brown sugar. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Finish is moderately bitter, moderately acidic. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. I don’t like the acidity in this context too much, but oh, what an aroma!
