3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Very dark brown, almost black pour. Translucent. No head on the beer. Spicy Belgian nose with some dried fruit (raisins maybe?). Moderate alcohol up front. Lots of carbonation. Sweet fruit and some spicy Belgian finish. Bitterness afterward. Nice palette. Overall pretty good, but not my favorite Unibroue offering.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2016 Bottle at home. Cloudy, dark brown/amber colour, big foamy beige head. Typical Belgian dubbel tones: caramel malts, dried fruits, brown sugar. Nicely balanced. Bitter and malty aftertaste. Good body, low carbonation, velvety soft mouthfeel. Well done, but tastewise not too special.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a thick 1/2" foamy light brown head. Has a dark brown almond colour. Nicely carbonated and ok lacing. Aromas of light malts and hints of vanilla. Flavours of strong roasted malts and mild chocolate like flavours as well. Somewhat bitter. Still goes down nicely, does not seem like a beer of 9% abv. Good stuff.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle@home, from Constantinoís, Cleveland, USA. Medium/strong slightly pungent aroma with dark fruits like raisin and plum, some cherry notes. Dark amber color with medium light beige head and hazy liquid. Strong taste with dark slightly roasted fruits and malts, a hint of banana and some artificial rubbery notes. Averagely balanced with medium taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with dark fruits and malts. Medium body with strong carbonation. Overall, a bit lo fidelity feeling from really high carbonation and somewhat simple and artificial taste.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted from the 750 ML bottle with Marc. It was very dark with a tall head, almost like a Guiness. Roasted malt with a hint of cocoa and coffee flavors. Easier to draw no than the 9% alcohol would suggest.
