UPDATED: OCT 29, 2007 Had this on tap in amsterdam’s old mcmillians brewpub (has recently changed names). The aroma hit me from a mile away. It was full of spices and a mild citrus 10. The head was fantastic and blended very nicely into the dark red color of the beer 4. The flavor was dark and rich with only a hint of alc 8. It only got better as I drank it longer4. A littler milder then a bottled version but none the less fantastic 19. -------- apart of the blind "Better Know a Style: Abbey Dubbel" tasting though I will not actuallu "rerate" just to keep my first rating intact. Clear, dark brown/ red with creamy small off-white head 4. Grapefruit and other sweet fruit in the aroma, alc 6. Flavor is dark fruit, grape, unappealing 4. Thin, a little chalky, no carb, watery 2. Not interesting, suburban dubbel 8. I’m amazed at the panning I did on this blind taste.

lgklotet (432) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 28, 2006
Bottle, 33 ml. Murky red-brown. Dissipating head. Lots of yeast sediment. Malty fruits in the nose. Fizzy carbonation initially, settles down after a while. The mouthfeel is thick, rich and the flavours are complex, especially at room temperature when the sweetness comes into full play. Keeps getting better with every sip, some hoppiness. This is really nice, more please.

via trade with Beer_Hawk - Pours a hazy brown color with a big off white head that lasts. Has a spicey, fruity aroma. The flavor is fruity and tad bit tart. Not much yeast in this one, which is nice. Medium to full body. I’m sorry. As hard as I may try, I can not get into these Belgium beers. Just too fruity. Worth a try though. Thanks Steve.
