COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Aroma of dates, sweet smelling but quite dry in flavor. Well balanced and nice, but nothing to rave about.

DuffMan (9027) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 7, 2006
Chestnut brown with a rocky towering beige head. Aromas of unspecified fruit and soft yest. A little figgy raisiny fruit and soft sweet malt. The mouthfeel is much softer after swirling the last of the bottle to stir up the yeast before finishing the pour. Still, I found it to be on the thin side. I think I prefer some of the other dubbels I’ve tried, but that goes against the general consensus here.

Mutualaid (142) - Texas, USA - DEC 2, 2006
Pours dark brown with a creamy, beige head. Aromas of grain and molasses with a hint of berries; no real hop bouquet. Fairly complex flavor that doesn’t really open up on the first few sips. Toasty malt flavor reminiscent of a doppelbock but not as sweet; a hint of plum or currant. Spice or rye flavor begins to appear as the glass warms. Medium bodied and not as heavy as I thought it would be. Fairly well balanced with a long, dry finish.

bobaidan (530) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - DEC 1, 2006
Pours dark brown with a medium head. Aroma is a mouthwatering blend of bruit (berry) with a slight hint of spice. Flavor is delicious. Prune/raisin flavors mix perfectly with nuts and a slight bitterness.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 29, 2006
Bottle 49F Trappist. Superfruitty nose, like juicy fruit bubble gum. A nice light fruit touch maybe strawberries, light on the banana. Dark red color, with a light tan head, and of course great lacing. Light taste of plums, almonds, starts sweet, then becomes sour and still finishes lightly sweet. A lighter palate than I expected, I was thinking it would be a little more substantial. Kind of a watery mouthfeel, quite a bit lighter than I expected. Good brew, nothing magical or god like. But really not too bad, and quite drinkable.

decaturstevo (5742) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - NOV 27, 2006
Dark brown/red pour with a whompus head of off white head. An aroma of rich malt, raisins, and light alc. A flavor that is fruity raisins and more alcohol than the 7% says it is. A mouth feel that is smooth and as carbonated as the style is. Another beer I wish didn’t cost so much, cause I’d drink more of it.
