COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A reddish brown trappist ale, malty and fruit, featuring a 3 week secondary fermentation. This ale has a full, pale yellow head. The bouquet is full of esters and fruitiness. Notes of ripe banana predominate. The taste is fruity and slightly bitter, with a long, dry finish.

330 ml bottle. Aroma was way more sweeter and fruitier than the flavor. Aromas of cherry and currant prevailed with some caramel and molassas in there too. The flavor was very malty, with a tinge of sour viniousness to it. Pretty good stuff.

Very dark color, but red appears when its held up to the light. Head is a light tan cream. Aroma is pretty complex. Spicy and estery. The flavor is very dynamic and changes considerably from the time it hits your lips to the semi-dry finish. The begining is the spicy esters evident in the aroma, but the finish is a more subtle dark chocolate. The palate is full bodied and carries itself very well. I like this beer.

Rich creamy tan head tops this brown beer. Aroma is dominated by malty caramel and liquorice, which is also found in the flavour. The latter is predominantly sweet, but is balanced by subtle bitterness. There are hints of fruit and coffee as well. Good carbonation, full body. A very harmonious, somewhat subtle and definitely balanced trappist dubbel, maybe that is why it is so undersung?

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2006 Rerate:
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy reddish-brown with a huge lasting rocky off-white head. Nice lacing. Very nice complex aroma of Belgian yeast, sweet malt, brown sugar, chocolate, dark fruit and more. Flavour of lightly roasted malt, Belgian yeast, dark fruit, brown sugar, hops and alcohol -- very flavourful. Medium bodied. Truly fantastic, this is one of the top Dubbels in my opinion.

Original rating: 8.3.7.3.15: 3.6
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry at Smokeless Joe. Pours a bubbly murky dark reddish-brown with a small light-brown head. Mild sweet aroma of malt, fruit and a touch of hops -- it smells great. Sweet malt flavour was good but not as good as expected after that great aroma. I quite liked it but it didn’t knock my socks off.

Pours a dark reddish brown with a tan head. Sweet apple and molasses aroma with hints of fig. Slightly nutty flavor with plenty of fruit and brown sugar. Weird soapy flavor in there as well. It’s good beer but not as enjoyable as the tripel.

Dark mohagony color with a dense rocky head. The fruity esters from the yeast combine wiht the rich malty aroma for an intense pleasurable sensation through the nose. The flavor is everything the aroma offers and more. Light in body and rich in flavor with an incredible balance of sweet, malty, and rich aromas and flavors.

BeerRules (243) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Big beige head on a light ruby brown body. Smells very much of yeast, red wine, and some spiciness, awesome. Taste has a nice balace of sweetness and sourness, with a bit of brown sugar and rum. Very delicious.

Pours a dark, rusty brown. Yumm. Much richer and deliciouser than the Trippel. Definitely a repeater worthy of repetition.

Pours deep brown with nice creamy head. Good flavor, but doesn’t knock your socks off.
