Pours with a beautiful cafe au lait head and an aroma of dried fruit, hops, and brown sugar. Good biting flavor of soy sauce or Marmite (but milder) and toasted grain. A slightly bitter finish, not too dry. Tropical fruit flavors continue to unfurl through the remainder of the glass.

Aroma is a mixture of hints of fruit and chocolate. Pour is bwrown with a foamy head. Tasty throughout the glass, and has a good, long finish.

The Tripel and Dubbel back to back. A delicious experience, indeed! Pours a beautiful amber with brownish hues. Great and lively carbonation floating in the glass. Thick lace clings to the sides of the glass. Flavors of dark fruits, yeast, light caramel, and spices. Overall, I find them both wonderful equally.

Poured into my westmalle chalice-a dark reddish brown with a small ,quickly dissappearing head.The aroma is malty and slightly sweet,but the flavor is rather bland compared to other trappist beers.This is an ok beer,not the best.

Pours a dark brown with red when held to the light with a medium light tan head with small bubbles. Lots of carbonation when opened and first poured. Great lacing down the sides of the glass. Head sustained but got a good bit smaller. Aroma is very fruity, dark fruits, toffee, sweet and very nice. Flavor was very yeasty at first, kind of covered up the dark fruits. A bit of a roasted malt coming through as well. Some nuttiness coming in the flavor also. Very carbonated on the tongue. Really was looking for more in the flavor since I enjoyed the aroma so much. Still a very solid beer...just couldn’t rate the flavor as high as the aroma.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Creamy, fluffy, light brown/red head..
It pours light brown, but in the glass the body becomes dark red and slightly unclear.
Flavor is just great. Very sweet dark fruit, but also very dry which compensates for that. Overall very smooth drinking,,,
Very nice long dry bitter finish.
I had this one several times.. it is my absolute favorite for now.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark orange-brown with beige head. The aroma is like sweet berries, with some wood and malt, and a little bit of a vinous quality. The flavor is also reminiscent of sweet berries, with some creamy caramel notes, some baking chocolate, and even a hint of dark roasted coffee. The finish is both sweet and ashy and trails off to a kind of burnt wood bitterness. Solid.

Westmalle Dubbel is a true classic--a lovely combination of malty depth, spicy flavor, and exquisite packaging, be it the collared duck-pin bottle or the simple trademark chalice. Westmalle’s frightfully expensive in the US, but is worth it once in a while... Ommegang is not a bad substitute though.
