KajII (780) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Bottle. Poured a medium brown with a large rocky off white head that was mostly lasting and had excellent lacing. The aroma was of toasted malts, a leathery yeast and a slight herbal hop with notes of molasses and coffee. It tasted lighty sweet and sour at first and ended slightly bitter with a strong hint of coffee and a slight alcohol finish that lasted a short time on the palate. Mouthfeel was medium in body and oily in texture with a flat carbonation. Overall a tasty abbey ale.

mathieuc (1183) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 17, 2014
Pours a dark brown with a medium-high offwhite head that leaves superior lacing. Nose is of dark fruits (raisins) and some candi sugar. Taste is sweet-ish and features more grapes and some burnt sugar. Body is medium and carbonation more than sufficient. Overall a nice dubbel, not too sweet or phenolic.

POLK (2155) - Hørning, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2014
I’m more into the fruity and spicy Belgian beers. This dark brown beer with a light taste of rye bread is ok but not my favorite type.

Ordinary Belgian dubbel beer. Not world shocking, just decent and tasty. Like most of the others.

DwarfeD (851) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2014
33cl bottle shared with friends. Clear amber brown with an off-white head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Sweet with some bitter tones. Brown sugar, caramel, dark fruits, spices and herbs. A nice dark Belgian brew.

weihenweizen (1630) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - MAY 13, 2014
Refrigerated 11.2 brown squat bottle, best by date, July 14, 2014, poured into a Trappist glass. Pours clear medium brown with medium off-white head. Aroma is dark fruit, medium body, medium carbonation, and some small bubble lacing. Taste is sweet dark candy sugar, molasses, some dark fruit, and hints of chocolate. A little too sweet and more dark fruit would be better.

greenmanalishi (468) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2014
Mulled plum caramels, bit sweet and a sticky oily palate. Mid-brown with a frothy head.

zeek (167) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 4, 2014
Pours a minimal head that disappears in less than a minute. Hearty aroma suggests a robust beer, but on tasting its not overpowering. Smooth all around.

sharkydodson (159) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - APR 10, 2014
very bright aroma of caramel and plum... the taste is caramel and fruity, rather rich and intensive... aftertaste is dry and warming... very good dubbel...
