muenster (345) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 24, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2007 Bottle, thanks HogTownHarry! Pours dark deep amber/chesnut with a small beige head. Aroma is a very malty, with the perfect sweetness for a dubbel, also a bit of fruits make themselves known. Flavor is sweet malts and breadiness up front, with some floral almost hoppy touches coming in, followed quickly a dry finish. Mouthfeel is perfectly carbonated, to finish dry, and provide enough time to get just enough of a taste that begs you to take another sip.

themightyomega (92) - New York, USA - MAY 24, 2007
Bottle: Pours deep chocolate brown with a thin light tan head, which adheres to the glass in an interesting way. Mild sweet aroma, hints of fruit and hint of hops. A marvelously balanced flavor with huge complexity. First sweet, a bit of wine-like flavor, with a noticable sour undertone, with a bit of bitterness breaking through, but no note dominates the symphony of flavors. Rich creamy texture. Truly a wonderous, nay, miraculous, perhaps divinely inspired brew.

oberabcbbsok (691) - Hoboken, BELGIUM - MAY 24, 2007
Bottlr as well as draft. A very good beer. You should try the combination of 50% Double mixed with 50% tripple a very nice and smooth taste. This one is an option at the Trappist Pub across the brewerie. This combo is called Half om Half and is the only beer my sister drinks. You can have the beer now also in large bottle.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - MAY 21, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2007 Bottle. Pours a very deep hazy brown with a nice thick foamy tan/brown head. Head sticks around for a good while before dissappearing. Aromas are of dark fruits and sweet malts. Flavor is of grapes and very smooth and sweet malts. Slight undertones of apple. Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated. Medium bodied. Overall a very nice beer.

jdhunt76 (56) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2007
Bottle. Pour is a handsome chestnut brown with a diminishing sandstone head. Nice Belgian floral nose. Malty, bready flavors at the beginning, with forest fruit flavors (fig and hazelnut) emerging, followed by toffee flavors in the finish. Medium bodied and remarkably well balanced.

jake65 (3368) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - MAY 11, 2007
Bottle: Murky reddish brown pour with a large off-white head. Nose of malt and sweet fruits. Tastes of sweet fruits, caramel, and malts. Just a subtle hint of spice. Very smooth and drinkable with a balanced amount of carbonation.

Egon (478) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAY 9, 2007
Bottle. Dark brown with a whitish head. Nice aroma with some fruit and maybe malt. Taste of caramel, hay, malt and mabe, maybe some chocolate? A bit dry. Medium body. I poored it in my Westmalle glass and much of the carbondioxide went away. If you use a glass with smaller "mouth" you might get it too much carbonated.

Theis (15117) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2007
Bottle at Le Moules in Prague. Unclear brown - offwhite head. Chokolate, raisins, apple, licorice, fruity, malty, roasted, smooth. Too high carbonated.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Brown with a little clinging head. Malty nose on a fizzy high carbonated body. Same malt flavor but a rough finish. I think this bottle had spent too much time on a shelf.
