Dark brown with hints of red in my chalice with a small beige foam for a head. Candied fruit nose. Best before date of 9-5-08, but I donít know what that means wrt the age of this bottle. I had an older bottle not long ago and I think I prefer it younger. Lots of bubbles on the tongue. Fruity with lots of grape, berry, raisen and fig newton. There is an everpresent bright sugar sweetness to it that is tempered somewhat by the yeast.Very nice trappist ale.

Quality beer from the monks. Perfect appearance and texture. High carbonation, huge long-lasting head and dry finish makes it easy to drink. Moderate esters, a perfect balance of phelolics and fruits. A masterpiece.

hapjydeuce (997) - Carlsbad, California, USA - APR 20, 2007
Pretty old bottle by the looks of it, bbd of 6/12/07. Pours a dark brown with a velvety tan head with moderate lacing. Mediocre aroma of malt, sugar and raisin. Flavor of caramel, slight hint of yeast and orange peel. A bit disappointed with the palate, not very smooth and almost metallic in the end, not good. Medium alcohol finish. I would like to try a fresh bottle, but worth a try.

Just poured into a glass. Nice malty glug sound. Deep red hue, small head. Flavor is bright, crisp with some fig, prune and malt. Palate is thin not a long finish, It would be nice to do back to back with this style.

Sampled at a blind abbey dubbel tasting hosted by tennisjoel on 4-14-07, along with eight other beers. This was the third beer that we tasted. It finished in eighth place in my rankings, but it was fourth place in the group rankings. Originally poured from an 11.2 oz. bottle. The overwhelming winner of the night was ít Smisje Dubbel, with Corsendonk Pater finishing a strong if distant second. <P>Weak but nice, chocolatey, chalky aroma. Some alcohol in the scent, also watermelon. Pours a relatively opaque, dark amber/brown with a very small amount of beige head and few bubbles. Alcohol noticeable in the flavor, moreso than in many of the stronger beers that we sampled at the tasting. Subtle flavors including watermelon and tobacco. Slight bitter finish. Light to medium body. I liked this beer better than the score might indicate. I bumped up the overall score to compensate.

smells like raisins and something berry-esque that i canít quite put my finger on. cloudy dark amber color. tastes like raisins and malt. the aroma gave me reason to believe this beer would be sweeter than it actually was which is cool with me. prolley not gonna rate as high as some other folk but this is not a bad beer

Diablo9845 (62) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2007
Very unique appearance, almost like a red wine. Minimal head and medium carbonation. Very noticable taste of grapes, somewhat malty and left the palate feeling dry. Very unique beer in my opinion, I enjoyed it.

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