UPDATED: APR 5, 2007 Drank this along with a Rochefort 6 and this came out on top hands down. Beautiful dark brown pout with a 2 finger head that laced all the way down the glass. Head left alot quicker than the Rochefort. Aroma is dark fruits, spices and alcohol with some yeastiness in the background.

Sampled in Brugge. Served in proper glass and appearance was beautiful. Tan color was tremendous and a nice smooth head on top. Beer goes down smooth but not as nicely as the tripel.

Poured a dark brown; hints of red; murky. Not much head. Aroma of dark fruit, sweet, spice, sugar and yeast. Flavor was much of the same, but with noticable malt and caramel; bitter and spice finish. Mouthfeel was a little thin for my liking, but still good. Flavors blended well, but just didnt blow me away.

dj (565) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2007
Bottle, 330ml. A dark brown colour with a red tint and a small head. A sweet, fruity aroma. Taste is very malty with some cherry, raisin and chocolate. Fairly high carbonation. A fairly bitter, malty, fruity finish. Not bad, but Iíve had better dubbels.

Dragonfly1 (500) - Colorado, USA - FEB 25, 2007
Hop Leaf, Chicago. Muddy brown in color, this was poured into a goblet wide enough to fit a basketball. Slightly sweet. Not a ton of flavors stood out for me, but I did enjoy it a bit more than the Maredsous 8 that I also had.

Pours a deep walnut brown color, cloudy. Light aroma of fruit, with apple being the first coming to mind. Very crisp, lively on the tongue. Complex mix of flavors. I first got caramel, then that apple-y flavor to match the aroma, then some dark chocolate with some faint black pepper accents. A bit of alcohol warms the gums and throat after each sip. This is the first dubbel Iíve tried, and I really, really enjoy this beer.

larsga (7157) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2007
Biggish beige head. Black opaque body, as far as I can tell. Sweet banana aroma with notes of licorice, spice, and soft metallic hops. Deep, intensely spicy (paradise seeds, coriander, pepper, and cinnamon), licorice, and chocolate taste with strong banana notes. Aftertaste is chocolatey spice, quite bitter. Harmonic. A fantastic beer, one of the best Belgians. (0.33l bottle.)

GriffinAvenue (396) - Winchester, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 24, 2007
Bottle. Deep brown pour with 1/2" foam that evaporates very quickly. Faint yeasty, grainy scent with hint of honey and sugar. Dry, grassy taste. Not much body but distinctive report in the back of the throat and nostrils. Interesting, but not my cup of tea.

Foggy brown with a thick light tan head. Aroma is yeasty, with alcohol, caramel, cinnamon. Taste is yeasty, with light chocolate, light alcohol, some mollases.

This is a nice looking beer: dark, rich, and full of promise. Aroma was faint, but I did notice the fruit. My first mistake was starting to drink this beer when it was too cold. My first observations were that this was a fresh tasting beer with a clean aftertaste. However, as the beer warmed up I noticed a somewhat funky aftertaste that hang around on the palate skewing my overall opinion. Now that my glass is empty I truly feel that the only way I get to really know this beer is to pour another. Not a bad prospect. In short, not a great beer but definately one that wonít let you down. I really good dubbel. Cheers
