3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Raisin brown color with a big creamy head. Aroma of raisins, dark fruit, spices, toffee, rich caramel. Taste surprisingly light for such a heavy beer, put me in mind of an English brown on steroids. Sweet, some banana notes, toffee, dark brown sugar, noticeable alcohol and some tin, which unfortunately lingers on the tongue. I hate Belgian beers but surprisingly I didn’t hate this. Nice dry finish makes you drink this down quickly, which could be dangerous...

Marrone scura, quasi impenetrabile, schiuma nocciola chiara di media persistenza.
Al naso banana matura e malto; man mano che si scalda note oleose ed alcoliche, leggermente pungente.
Classico sapore di Dubbel: frutti rossi, malti torrefatti, amaro sul finale.
Molto carbonata, corpo medio-leggero.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Caramel and yeasty aroma with notes of honey. Clear mahogany colour. Bitter front caught me off guard; notes of banana, toffee, and black coffee. Medium in body and carbonation. Nice, but a bit too bitter for my desire of a Dubbel.

One of the very few trappist beers I don’t like. Too dark, too bitter. Not recommended.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured with a large tan head with tiny bubbles, beautiful mahogany colour when held to the light. Boozy yeasty bubblegum on the nose. Thin body with a massive boozy hit, bitterness comes through leaving a tacky mouthfeel and a desire for another sip. Sweet banana at the back of the pallet. Perfect for the style.
