This beer has a dark brown body - hue apperance and a coarse light brown scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had a no carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is sweet with a light sweet afther tast.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2005 [bottle from sainsburys] pours a ruby red/brown colour with a large maintaining head. nose is fruity and lively, strawberry aromas give way to a sweet sugary aroma with a little yeast. Well bodied and lively with a dry, refreshing finish. really drinkable for its alcohol %

Finally got around to picking this up after a year of neglect. Donít know exactly why I put this off. This stuff was excellent. Flavour is a basket of banana, malt, clove, fig and a bit of a roasted hint here and there. Alchohol is present though not aching to burn a hole in your throat. Very warm overall. Some sedement but no dregs. Onto the tripple!

Super dark and murky, medium head, some sedment lays on top of the head like cinnamon. Faint smell of bananas. Kind of a subtle fruity taste. Que delicioso

Jan Primus (160) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 23, 2005
Dark brown with huge head...flavour of chocolate, banana, figs, and malts. Not too sweet nor sour, not much alcohol presence yet satisfyingly full. Yet another great trappist.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - MAR 23, 2005
Transparent ruby amber, diminishing off white head, bubbles present with good carbonation. Sweet and spicy fruit aroma, slight alcohol hidden in there. Flavors of malts, some slight bitterness, dry alcohol finish. The carbonation feels good in the mouth.

deep ruby amber color, brownish gold at edges. some chunky yeast particles on the second pour. very thick and creamy dense light tan head. aroma is yeasty for a dubbel, with cherry, dark rum, raisin, and "twizzlers candy" scent. loose creamy mouthfeel. deep malty flavor but not too sweet. not as much candi sugar in the flavor as other trappists, nice to have an artistic difference among the monks! white rum flavor and dryish finish.

03.18.05 330ml bottle dated 25.11.05 Woody brown pour with unflappable khaki head. Fun Belgian aromas, Fleer gum, plum, berries, rum-soaked raisins. Body is lighter than I expected, full but airy and plenty effervescent. Sour in a beautifully earthy way, much like a white Burgundy, also a bit mineral, reminiscent of pretzel salt on my lips. Finishes thoughtfully, bright, but maybe thinner than Iíd hoped. Refreshing where I anticipated coating, crisp where I expected sweet, pleasantly dry to close. Itís about time I had this.

Dark ruby/light brown beer. Mine came bubbling violently out of the bottle and poured very effervescently. However, the head calmed down quickly. Fruity, sweet flavor. Light but very full of flavor. A nice Belgian dubble.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - MAR 17, 2005
Clear brown appearance, thick head formation. Sweet bubble gum clove combined with dark raisin/prune fruit aroma and some faint dusty spiciness. Sweet syrupy fruit malt palate that doesnít get thick but is very well subdued by a dry woody balance. Fair hoppiness in the finish lingering soft and dry.
