Nice beer, especially with meat on the side. Nice dark colour and a very nice taste. Chocolate and dark fruits.

I am drinking this out of the Westmalle Chalice,NIce dark brown beer some chill haze (the bar serves at fridge temps)The head was 1" beige foam that faded to 1/4" but stayed with the beer.The initial aroma was alcohol and funky belgian yeast smell but as it warmed the dark fruit and caramel malts are evident. The taste was big and malty with a lot of fruitiness and some spiciness in the swallow. It is dryer than I expect .Medium mouthfeel for a 7% beer.

Good beer. The aroma is dry with a hint of fruityness. It has a dark reddish brown hue to it. Flavor is pretty much typical belgium style. Very carbonated, its a little less sweeter then most belgians out there. Has a fruity dry flavor to it that is rather smooth and flavorful. Id recommend this beer.

Deep reddish mahogany, bit puffy white head slides downward to form a brownish, creamy film. Great nose, chocolate covered cherries, raisins, and prunes. Quite tasty, chocolate, dark fruit, lots of candy sugars. Richly sweet in the finish, leaves a nice aftertaste hanging about. Almost enough to make me rethink my less-than-spectacular opinion of dubbels.

This is one fabulous beer. Almost makes me want to become a monk. One of the single greatest beers in the world lives up to its reputation in every way.

i think my bottle might need a bit more aging. it tastes quite young to me. so i might re-grade this in the future.

The site seems to be right about this one -- 3.9 or thereabouts. Rather on the mild side with some moderate hints of complexity. Fruity in the flavor and subdued aroma. A little tart.

Pours a nice deep amber/brwon hue with a small tan head . Aromas of banana, love, a little pruney. Flavors of the same, but without much depth.

Bottle, Passage Cafe, Brugge, Belgium. On the red side of amber, with soft white bubbles. Slightly bitter aroma, with medium malt smells with some slight belgian floral characteristics. Taste is a little plain, but i believe it was served to me a little too cold. It took on more of that floral belgian tastes as it warmed up. It was bitter, slightly malty and fairly rich and floral. Somewhat full-bodied, lingering full-ness. A good, balanced belgian, but maybe a bit on the bitter side.
