4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells great, dried fruit, plums, figs, some belgian spice and a hint of spicy hops. Very brown, streaming effervescence, thick brown head. Tastes great, a lot of flavor for 7%. Very malty upfront, more dried fruit, finishes with candi sugar, earthy hops and a spicy/sharp note. Medium bodied and highly carbonated. Quite good dubbel.

Pours reddish brown, with a light tan head. Aromas are bubble gum, banana and booze. Taste is cloyingly sweet, and barely bitter. The aftertaste ends abruptly. The mouthfeel is slightly thick and the carbonation is low.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice over ripe banana, belgian bready-yeast dominant aroma. Some interesting aromatic tones. Hints of dried fruit and dark malt. Fairly heavy carbonation but carries the beer beautifully. Nice medium/full palate. Banana notes in flavor , a little chamomile, bread. Malt is subtle. My only gripe is its a little metallic in the flavor. Dry finish with some soft bitterness.

In Belgium for work but severely limited in free time, I vowed to try two beers a night. This was the second night. Had it with a friend over cheese and salami at a place near Mannekin pis, out of a 750. Great aroma, smooth and chocolatey and malty. Stood perfectly in the glass under a perfect head. Outstanding smooth taste which grew more complex and satisfying. Lingered on the palate and in the nose. One of the best beers and certainly amoung the finest of the Belgians. Interestingly, I had not been so crazy about this drinking it in the States, this was a 750 bottle not a 330 and it was no doubt very fresh. Worth trying again at home!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours deep red to brown with some sediment. Large beige head dissipates quickly leaving loosely dispersed bubbles. Nose of bread, banana and brown sugar, soft notes of caramel and dried fruit. Lively carbonation with flavours of raisin, clove, soy sauce and subtle leather. Sweet on the tongue, then peppery. Finishes clean though with a slight alcohol bite with sherry notes on the end.

Red brown color with tall quickly disappearing tan head, coarse bubbles, aromas of ripe banana, plum, brown sugar. Second nose has notes of yeast and marzipan. Oily texture. Sweet and slightly bitter in mouth. Good balance: sweet but not overly sweet.

From the bottle. Reddish brown pour with a thick rocky head. Fig prune and brown sugar aroma. Smooth crisp malt with big bitter bite and residual sweetness. Very tasty.
