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 I’ve tried, and I really, really enjoy this beer.

larsga (7251) - 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.)

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.

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 won’t let you down. I really good dubbel. Cheers

Pours a very dark brown color with a nice thick head. Aroma of malt, yeast, caramel, and spices. Taste is full of flavor with caramel, dark fruits and a hint of molasses. Very well balanced with a dry finish. A great dubbel.

Cloudy dark brown with a thick pink head and a chocolate aroma. The taste a bit thin. It’s an ideal beer before going to bed .

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2008 Bottle (33 cl) from Systembolaget. Murky reddish brown, big firm pale beige head. Malty, earthy, sugary aroma with a distinct yeast profile. Very smooth mouthfeel. A little plain compared to other trappist beers.

Colour a cloudy dark brown with a thick head and a slightly yeasty aroma. I found the taste a bit thin and unbalanced but with a soft warm sting from the alcohol.

PeterA (340) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 18, 2007
(Bottle) Fruits, roast coffee and chocolate notes in the aroma. Brownish, purplish, reddish color with a beige head. When I started drinking, it seemed very bitter, much like a dark roast coffee, but as it warmed to a more appropriate temperature, fruit and chocolate hints started coming through and the bitterness moderated. The mouthfeel was just a little bit sticky. Probably better for a winter night in colder climes than Senegal, but not bad here. I think it’s a pleasant well balanced beer.
