Pours a dark brown with reddish hues. Deep maroon, with a small, but well retained light tan head. Lots od dark fruits, dark malts, and candy sugar in the aroma. Very sweet smelling. The taste is big and bold, really sweet and fruity. Dark berries, malts, other dark fruits, some candy sugar, and a slight bitterness in the finish. Seems to be aloit going on here. The aftertaste has a hint of alcohol, but fruity on the palate. Nice brew. Good representation of this style in my opinion.

Embrouille (2835) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 29, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2009 Bottled 33cl. It pours a beautiful deep amber beer with a thick, rather big remaining tanned head. Outstanding flowery aromas of ripe fruits including berries, melon, banana and peaches. Wonderful hints of wild strawberries. Some toffee and licorice in the nose. Very sweet and slightly smoky. Some woody, madeira-like elements. The flavor is very rich and sweet with reminiscent woody characteristics. Rather vinous. This beer has a pleasant bitterness. A very well balanced dubbel with a sharp and spicy taste. Lots of caramel with hints of black chocolate. The finish is bitter with some dark chocolate that comes through.. I was impressed by this dubbel! Additional comment: An excellent trappist - slightly sour. Woody and vinous. Some candied fruits showing up. Unique. Third rerate: Excellent. Huge amonts of aniseed, chocolate, pineapple, homemade caramel, candy and sage showing up in both aroma and flavor. Good bitterness. Absolutely fantastic. After several sampings: Mango does come to mind in the taste especially.

Darkish brown with a touch of red, bit of a head which doesnít last too long. The beer smells like chocolate and maybe some dried fruit. Very complex taste. One of the best dubbels Iíve tasted.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 21, 2007
Bottle, pours black with a slight reddishness and a great foamy beige head (I liked the bottle as well). A fruity malt aroma with caramal and raisins and then a whiff of alcohol. Not as heavy or sweet as I was expecting. Light and malty at first, but then a much stronger sourness comes through and alcohol fills the mouth and the nostrils. There are some rich fruity flavours there, but it is the complex nature of the palate that carries me away. Damn good, canít wait to taste the Tripel....

Bottle--aroma is heavily sweet, very strong raisin, maybe some plum. Appearance is a rich purple-brown, light brown head. Flavor is quite sweet and very fruity. Raisin is foremost, along with apple and plum. Itís rich and malty as well. Overall, complex but still very drinkable. Very enjoyable.

Dark brown color with a fairly large tan head. Aroma is sweet with raisins, apples, and other fresh fruit. Taste is heavy with fruit. Taste has some apple and raisin plus fresh bready malts and a bit of yeast flavor. Smooth and refreshing. Good Dubbel.

Tasty, very drinkable for a belgian double, but not lacking in flavor. Picked it up while in the Netherlands, it avaliable in almost any grocery store for 1 euro a bottle.
