Glorious abbey dubbel beer. Offering it to me is an excellent way to undo any harm you may have caused me in the past.

Cloudy brown beer. Rich and complex. Some sour notes but also malty chocolate. A vague underlying fruitiness. Touch of marmite. Dry malty finish. Hard to pin down but flavoursome and drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl bottle. Brown body and a fizzy light beige creamy head that laces good. Aroma has malt, bread, liquor and maybe some port in it. The carbonation was very fizzy. It really sparkled in the mouth. This medium-bodied beer tasted light malty with hints of liquor, toffee and port in it. Very nice, especially on cold winter nights.
