DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2006
Use by date says december 05, so a bit old. Aroma is outstanding, fruity malt. Taste is similar, and light but in a great way that means its very drinkable.

Zarrach (4) - Grenoble, FRANCE - MAR 31, 2014 does not count
Excellent brown Belgian ale. 33 cl bottle in a tulip glass, beautiful colour, smoothy foam. A lot of taste with rich flavours (figs, dried grapes, gingerbread) and a strong character, impressive for a 7% alcohol beer. A very good discovery !

JonMoore (1875) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2004
Dark murky brown with no head. Aroma has dates, malts and bread. Taste is quite complex; malt is dominant, with spices and alcohol. Medium bodied and drinkable. Very good.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Dark indeed with an almost flat appearance, the CO2 is very low. Lightly sweetish with a lovely almost chocolatey aroma. Soft body with a very discreet hoppiness in the palate. An excellent abbey beer. My version was the original from Vieille Villers in Puurs. Now this is brewed by Huyghe. 080194

Bart (2940) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 23, 2005
Dark brown-red colour, average head. aroma is heavy roasted, but at the same time something fresh-fruity. Palate is full and soft, creamy. Finish is that "burned" taste, just enough bitterness and a touch of alcohol. I love it.

Jerre (2702) - Waregem, BELGIUM - NOV 21, 2007
Bottle 33 cl. Dark brown color, with an beige head. Aroma bit sweet with a chocolat touch. Medium body. Taste sweet, roasted malts, hops in the palate, and little fruity. Good regular abbey beer.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 11, 2004
Very dark, clear, red/amber color with medium, off-white head. Quite mild, caramel-malty aroma with clear anise/licorice hints. Malty, slightly alcoholic and sweet, red-wineous flavor. Medium to full-bodied palate with quite well-balanced (though a bit on the high side) carbonation. An easily drinkable, sweetish and quite full-bodied dubbel.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2006
Dark red-brown with an unusual yellowish-beige head. Sour and yeasty aroma. Taste has malt, ash and some sourness. Slight bitterness. Rather fizzy but very good.
