Bottle, bought @ Willems, Grobbendonk.
Gusher! Muddy redish brown with a giant, staying, frothy, off-white head. Aroma has lots of red berries, raisins, chocolate, soft tartness. Plums and a bit of coriander. Medium, prickly carbonation, light oily but kinda light mouthfeel for the ABV. Flavour has mild viniousness, plums, coriander, mild milky chocolate. Soft lactic tartness as well. Fine beer, even if the gushing is annoying.

Bottle, 11%. Good fruity aroma, hint of dried fruit. Cloudy red brown colour. Small stable tan head. The flavour is nicely fruity, good and dried. Has a little yeast, but is good with all the nice fruity flavours.

Koelschtrinker (17307) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 4, 2011
Der malzige Antrunk wird durch eine dunkle Röstnote ergänzt, im Mittelteil wird diese Kombination stärker. Eine auftretende Kräuternote ist deutlich weniger ausgeprägt und wird daher vom voluminös werdenden Malz überstimmt. Das Bier bleibt indes süffig. /10/11/11//11

Abio (1859) - Waasland, BELGIUM - MAY 7, 2011
Weird dubbel. Very dark orange brown. Good head. Sweet, and over spiced. A winterbeer, not bad, overdone with the herbs. Caramel, malts, fruits, apple.

sebletitje (9307) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 9, 2011
Bouteille 33cl. Abbey dubbel? not sure. Cuivre opaque, une levure vraiment active et donne une mousse qui continue à sortir de la bouteille après ouverture. Arôme de sucre de cane, malt et caramel, herbes; levure et autres épices le tout avec une touche lactique. En bouche, levure est bien présent, fruits noirs rappelant la prune, figue. Épices et autres herbes; épine de sapin, coriandre, gingembre, peut-être clou de girofle le tout avec le lactose qui donne un fini légèrement aigre et se trouve balancé par le sucre de cane et le malt. L’alcool est réchauffant sans pour cela nous montrer que nous sommes bien devant une bière tirant 11%.

suprchunk (2960) - Crestview, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Poured a murky darkish amber. Ample cream/white head that left noticeable lacing. Slightly hoppy and very malty. Sort of a watered down Old Ale scent. Same as the nose. Watered down Old Ale. The hops are not as present in the taste. The maltiness is very strong and makes it seem like Malta Goya. Kind of thin. The cloyingly sweet malt sticks around for awhile after drinking. Not impressive. Decent if you want a cloyingly sweet high ABV beer. Not very balanced, but the ABV is very muted.
