COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

A very pleasing aroma and a hazy appearance. There is a taste of muscadine and a lingering malty finish. Nice.

BeerBelcher (972) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2008 I reviewed this beer back in April of 2007, and had a bottle in the US of undetermined age and dubious condition. I had it again in Belgium (at a regular, non-beer-focused restaurant) and thought it to be great, and needed to revisit. The dubbel and tripel from this brewery are very good. Poured a dark red-brown color with lots of head. Aroma was slightly sour with some cherry notes and a little bit of malt accents. Flavor was maltier and roastier than the aroma with more sourness which was slightly cherry-ish in flavor. Mouthfeel was quite clean and dry and quite good. I would highly recommend this beer. I had it along with a croque monsieur and some frites at a Brussels restaurant called La Trappiste.

beerbill (3599) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 11, 2007
Bottle. Pours a cloudy, warm, deep brown with a large fluffy yellow/white head. Light, pleasant aroma of malt, caramel, and a bit of alcohol. Very nice delicate and well-balanced flavors include malt, caramel, and some light fruitiness. Warm alcohol finish.

nearbeer (4675) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 10, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2007 Bottle has no notching on date codes, but best by? date stamp is 04-05-07; maybe 5 years old? Pours cloudy, dark brown. Huge head quickly boils away to nothing. Aroma is toffee and chocolate-covered cherries with slight alcohol. Flavor is yummy caramel chocolate with slight hop bittering at the end to provide great balance. Palate is dry and medium bodied. Great beer.

downender (7686) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2007
Bottle. Dark brown with reddish tinge and a rocky beige head. Sweet toffeeish aroma with some fruity overtones. Taste was also sweet, a bit too sweet for me as I struggled to finish it.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2007
Pours a dark, deep red with a creamy off-white head and good lace. Faint aroma - fresh, dark cherries and sweet malt. Amazing flavour - quite subtle for a dubbel. Fresh dark cherries, cranberry, peppery hops, ends in a tart (but not sour) hoppy finish that warms. Creamy body, thin but milky. This is perhaps the most unassuming dubbel I have tasted, but so pleasant, fresh, and refined as to easily be the best. I wish I had more of these.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2007 Brown colour with a smoth creamy head. Rich flavor of malt, chocolate, toffee and caramel.
