Pours dark brown with ruby-red highlights with several fingers of light tan head and a good bit of lacing. Smells sweet, fruity and somewhat piney. Tastes fruity, kind of pruny. Some roasted notes. Medium body. A little bitter. Tasty, but not my favorite dubbel. A solid beer though.

Bottle from LCBO. Served in my Orval glass. Pours a dark ruby brown with a medium white head. Aroma is sweet malt, dark fruits, yeast, and spices. Taste is similar, with notes of grapefruit and some bitterness. Medium to full body.

Excellent beer, no doubt about it. Fruity but still bitter and long lasting

bottle shared with mate and consumed with some danish blue cheese: pours a beautiful ruby brown with a tan head. The dominent note I thought were the spices imparted from the yeast. sort of like christmas spices, some nutmeg and raisins. Tons of malty goodness. full bubbly palate. Great beer!

dmradus (227) - Ithaca, New York, USA - SEP 27, 2006
Pours a deep brown with a tan head that faded to a thin cap on the beer that lasted right down to the final sip. The aroma here is intense and variable: my first attempt was all dark fruit, dominated by raisin. Second go of it found some yeasty spiciness, while the third was sweet and malty. The taste is similar. The flavors are layered one on top of another, but in a noticeably subtle way: one sip brings roasty malts and caramel, with a spiciness in the finish. The next brings dark fruits and a fading bitterness at the sides of the tongue. As for mouthfeel, the carbonation here is lively upon first digging in, and fades as the beer sits and warms. It is more drinkable at the beginning but easier to appreciate the flavors at the end - both work to admirable goals, and never is the beer watery in the slightest - even acquiring a distinct creaminess as it warms.

Dark brown/amber with a rocky white head. Hops, malt and rather yeasty. Nice balance though.

tjthresh (1867) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - SEP 25, 2006
Pours a chocolatey brown color. Lots of carbonation. Light brown head. Pre-dominate rummy alcoholice aroma. The flavor is where its at. Chocolate, raisins, cooked sugars, rum, other dark fruits. Full on the palate yet easy to drik several. Very nice. I may start keeping a couple around.

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 24, 2006
330ml Bottle: Pours crimson-brown with a thick foamy head; incredible foam stability throughout here. Aroma is a beautiful blend of alcohol-soaked cherries, burnt caramel, and brown sugar. The flavour when cold is a muted combination of roasted malts, bitter apples, spices, and gentle hops. As it warms this turns from something great to something exceptional, an intricately crafted and balanced brandy-style beer with perfect creamy mouthfeel. Can’t wait to do it all over again.
