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 didnít 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. Itís good beer but not as enjoyable as the tripel.

fomentateur (110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 9, 2005
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.

brown reddish color with a brown head. smells yeasty, malty, and fruity. taste is all the same that you can pick up from smelling it. surprisingly very good, and gets better as the glass nears the bottom. 500+ ratings cant be wrong. good beer, try it if you see it.

HogTownHarry (6129) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2005
Bottle (330ml). Shared with blankboy at Smokeless Joe. Very nice, but had it after the St. Bernardus and didnít dig it as much. Poured bubbly amber-brown with some yeasties, a light tan creamy head. Aroma of apples and other tree fruits, hops, some mild brown sugar roast malt (fairly sweet). Taste follows the roast/apple nose, but thereís bitterness here too - some hops and almost crushed appleseed astringency. Mouthfeel is quite sweet/bitter balanced for an abbey dubbel, a tad thin, but very nice. An excellent brew, but didnít do it for me as much as most of its competitors.

Brown colour with a huge laaasting off white head. complex taste of chocolate, fruits and malt. It was a bit thinner than expected, but a good beer.

Kinz (3361) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 2, 2005
Brownish reddish, slightly murky, decent head. Aroma was a bit raisiny and yeasty. Flavor was sort of vaguely of dark fruits and some yeast. Seemed a bit thin overall. Carbonation was biting. While not a bad beer, it came up sadly short in a number of areas when it could have been so much more.
