browner (41) - Delafield, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 14, 2007
A great Dubbel with the classic aroma of caramel, malts and beautiful yeast overtones. Classic Belgian pour and color. A real winner which is readily available in our area. Life is good.

vyvvy (5525) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JAN 12, 2007
This one has been in storage for a while - the label reads best by 13/05/04. Its still good two and a half years after the supposed expiration date. Pours deep brown / bronze with a minimal tan head. The aroma has dark fruits, brown sugar and thick toasted malt that is musty and earthy. Medium / thick body that starts smooth and rich, but has a lot of carbonation on the finish despite its age. The taste starts with thick roasted caramel malt, brown sugar and dark fruits. The finish adds a bit of spice and a touch of sourness.
This is a world class beer that ages very gracefully.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2007 (Bottle) Pours cherry red to brown. Fruity and sweet aroma with dark ripe pears and some cherries. A bit wineous but also a bit artificial. Candy sugar and a tiny hint of marzipan. Some yeast and spices. Well carbonated, sweeet flavour with earthy undertones. Some cherries and marzipan. Small, light bitterness. Medium body.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - JAN 7, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2008 Bottle 0.3 l from Achel Kluis. Very very nice and balanced. Fruity and little sweet, yet doesn’t smell like babyfood like some abbey products. Very enjoyable. The mouth feel left a little to be disappointed of. It was fizzy and carbonated, but doesn’t really explode in your mouth. Re-rate, same score: (Vastarannan Kiiski). Spicy, malty. Quite bitter and slightly tart without being overly dry.

aenimopiate (176) - The United States of Texas, Texas, USA - JAN 5, 2007
I was sensing the distinct aroma of fruits, but I could not distinguish which. The flavor is quite excellent, and the palate and mouthfeel are equally good. I recommend this beer to those in search of yet another wonderful trappiste.

bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JAN 5, 2007
Bottled. Pours a clear dark amber with a substantial and lacy off-white head. Medium body and fizzy carbonation. Sweet aroma with fruit, nuts, perhaps a trace of banana? Sweet taste predominated by fruit and malty goodness. Spicy finish.

Stew41 (1907) - Phuket, THAILAND - JAN 2, 2007
A bit disappointing given the pedigree. Chocolate brown with a thin creamy head. Dull nose. Palate is dominated with fizz which makes it tough to get a read on the flavours. Darkish malts is about the best I can do. (BB July 2008). Perhaps I’m missing the obvious?

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2008 33cl bottle. Pours opaque ruby/brown with small sediment. Medium tan heady and small lacing. Aroma is sweet and yeasty. Flavour is earthy, dark fruits, and hints of chocolate.
