[At Fete de la Biere 2004, Lausanne] A very dark brown beer with a fine lasting light brown head. The aroma is sweet malty and so is the flavor, but the flavor also contains notes of roasted bread and caramel. Rather simple and too sweet, but OK.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle 34,1 cl) Courtesy of Siroy. Hazy, dark brown with a small, creamy, beige head. Vinous aroma with some dried fruit. Medium body, sweetish notes of roasted malt and dried fruit - has a very soft mouthfeel. Very subdued bitterness. Less yeasty and carbonated than what’s the norm from Unibroue - and hence quite delicate. 080507

Bottled (from lahoublonnaire.be). Very dark brown colour with minor head. Aroma is raisins, some mild alcohol, spices, yeast, dark berries and licorice. Flavour is caramel malts, dark berries, some slight oak barrel, mild licorice and some slight alcohol. Gets better the warmer it gets. At room temperature very pleasant.

Brown color; brownish generous and creamy head. Simple malt and caramel aroma. Ordinary Dubbel body, just some light malt and caramel, quite dry, without character.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I was hoping for a little brother to Trois-Pistoles, but instead got something far more resistable. Dark brown, with little yeast in suspension. Toast, caramel and sulphur on the nose. High carbonation. Toffeeish note with raisin. Sweetish, and tastes yeastier than it looks.

dark colour, the head is initially medium, uniforme, creamy and slightly brown-tainted, aroma of prune, slightly toasted with notes of alcohol, very smooth, lot of carbonation (looks like a big trend by Unibroue), decent bitterness, dry malty finish with reminiscence of prune - good but very resistable
