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.

BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 27, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2007 Aroma of dark dried fruits and sweet malt. Appearance is a dark brown, with a dense, swirling white head. Flavors are rich malts, fruity yeast and a mild spicy hop finish. Very well balanced overall, with just a touch of alcohol warmth to finish.

DarkMagus (475) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 27, 2006
Sweet malty, fruity aroma... some hint of caramel, dates, raisins, dried cherries... some slight nuttiness and a hint of yeast. Huge bubbly light brown head, thick and very dense with tiny microscopic bubbles. Very dark brownish-reddish color. Rich and complex flavors of sweet malt, dried fruits, yeast, caramel... a hint of molasses. Very slight syrupy mouthfeel, not too much... the light carbonation makes for a slightly drier finish. Great brew, reasonably priced... very smooth and easy to drink despite the heaviness.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JUL 23, 2006
Pours dark amber brown w/ a full spritzy froth. Aromas of candy fruit and malt. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Complex flavors of dried stone fruit, brown sugar, fig, raisons, plums, and rock candy. Finishes w/ a nice bittering but remains fruity. Alcohol is noticeable. Overall: A very complex specimen worthy of any connoisseurs list.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 18, 2006
bottle. Aroma: Dried cherries, toffee, roasted malt, a little potpurri, and some noticeable alcohol. Appearance: A dark brown with red highlights. Head was light tan, creamy, and long lasting. Almost no lacing. Flavor: Lots of malt sweetness with notes of caramel, light chocolate, and raisins. Touches of clove. Alcohol was noticeable in the finish. Palate: Full bodied. Carbonation was high and a little prickly. Worked itself out after awhile, but distracting at first. Alcohol left some warming in back of mouth. Overall: When I first got this beer at the bar I was at, it was way too cold. Aroma and taste suffered. Once it warmed up, all the great malty/fruity flavors came out. After that it was terrific.

Pours a deep mahogany with a creamy head and tons of carbonation. It dissipates after a while. A mild spicy and sweet aroma. After the first sip, you can taste hops, fruit, with a nice malt balance. I like the complexity of this beer, it’s easily drinkable.

Svesse (7052) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUL 15, 2006
(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, 14 July) Colour is dark brown, with hints of ruby, and a frothy head. Nose is malty with butter-scotch, toffee, dark bread, caramel and marzipan. Taste is malty, a bit roasted, with dried fruit, figs, nuts (hazel nuts) and somewhat lactic. Well balanced sweetness and a touch of hops in the finish. Nice brew!

TonyBanannas (36) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2006
Bottle, poured a cloudy redish brown with a thin white head. I dont know if it was my sinuses, but I couldn’t get a great aroma out of this one. I’m sure thats why, because a few good sniffs and I really couldnt get a definition on the ale. I’ll tell you one thing though. It goes down easy, in two-three minutes I had finished a second. Flavored with wine, come citrus, just a touch of hops, and a little roasted malt. Finishes bitter like some of my favorite beers. A good brew, but nothing I could rave over.

Like a warm fruitbread. The other monks and I really enjoy this one. Currents and plump golden raisin notes mingle with the light carbonation...delightful.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2007 Had this on tap in amsterdam’s old mcmillians brewpub (has recently changed names). The aroma hit me from a mile away. It was full of spices and a mild citrus 10. The head was fantastic and blended very nicely into the dark red color of the beer 4. The flavor was dark and rich with only a hint of alc 8. It only got better as I drank it longer4. A littler milder then a bottled version but none the less fantastic 19. -------- apart of the blind "Better Know a Style: Abbey Dubbel" tasting though I will not actuallu "rerate" just to keep my first rating intact. Clear, dark brown/ red with creamy small off-white head 4. Grapefruit and other sweet fruit in the aroma, alc 6. Flavor is dark fruit, grape, unappealing 4. Thin, a little chalky, no carb, watery 2. Not interesting, suburban dubbel 8. I’m amazed at the panning I did on this blind taste.
