KajII (799) - 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.

Scopey (8397) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Bottle at Poechenellekelder. It pours darkest brown with a decent off-white head. The nose is bitter-sweet, toasty, candy sugar, raisin, sultana, toasty sugars and sweet roast. The taste is bitter-sweet, sweet candy sugar, raisin, toast, raisin, dates, alcohol hit, brown sugar, roast, varnish and a touch of spice. Med+ body and moderate carbonation. Pretty good dubbel. Plenty of boost.

ianwelby (661) - SCOTLAND - APR 19, 2015
Cloudy brown beer with a thick, bubbly head. Aroma is rich and fruity though you can also smell the strength of it. Fortunately given the strength it’s one to savour than to guzzle anyway as it’s really quite sweet. Not especially sickly, the fruit flavours are quite natural rather than it being a sugary mess, but there’s a proper tanginess to it when you first have a swig. Quite light in spite of everything though.

Hamirubi (203) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAR 30, 2015
33cl bottle. Strong dark beer, full of flavours. Caramel, raisins. A beige foam tops the brown body. Once my favorite, now a very lovely, yet very sweet abbey with great body.
