A reddish brown trappist ale, malty and fruit, featuring a 3 week secondary fermentation. This ale has a full, pale yellow head. The bouquet is full of esters and fruitiness. Notes of ripe banana predominate. The taste is fruity and slightly bitter, with a long, dry finish.

This brown ale pours with a substantial tan head, eliciting a pleasant malty aroma. Starts with a heavy fruit and malt flavor, with a yet stronger candy and citrus finish. Very well balanced with just the right amount of carbonation.

First impressions are the dark brown colour and the tower of foam that suddenly appears out of nowhere. The taste is malt-dominated with hints of citrus. When you have finished your Westmalle dubbel you still feel the taste malt on your tongue, now accomanied with a pleasant bitter tone.

Pailhead (4812) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - FEB 22, 2005
Bottle: Excellent aroma. Very malty and tons of fruit. Lots of grape. Pours a dark hazy transparent brown with a huge off-white head with great retention. Flavor is very malty and fruity. Just like the aroma tons of grape. Light caramel. A little sourness in the finish blends well. Grape comes stronger in the finish and leaves a nice aftertaste. Very smooth. Better than the trippel. Excellent beer. Could drink this all the time.

flavor: thick, sour, raisin, some dry and some sweet... a little one-dimensional though. Good, just not fantastic.

From a bottle into my trusty all purpose St. B chalice. Sweet taste, great mouthfeel. Malty and fruity indeed, as well as wine-like. This was so good, full of flavor, easy going down, excellent.

Is it me or does this taste like the gorilla house at the zoo. Lovely colour and head but the initial taste is wrong. It has a pungent, urine aroma which is not dispelled on drinking. Not imressed. (Bottled)

Bottled. Some beers just pass under your rating radar, don;’t they? Been loving this for years and just realised I never reviewed it. Rich ruddy brown body. That aroma; lots of fresh yeast, sniff of banana, clove, dry cleaning fluid... that flavour is all creamy fruits steeped in booze, mulled apple schnapps, carbonation keeping it feeling light not cloying. Then the malted fruits linger on the tounge. Been a long time since I was sat in Bar Erasmus cradling a couple of these, but it’s still a great drink. And that was my last bottle of Dubbel so it’s time for a shopping trip, methinks...

DCopperfields (145) - Alabama, USA - FEB 11, 2005
Beer is a rather nice, Pepsi-Cola brown atop of which rides a substantial and billowy beige head of considerable foam. Nose has hints of molasses mingling with alcohol and fermenting old fruits. Palate is creamy, a bit stinging yet pleasant. Taste is rich and wonderful. Carbonation dances on the tounge as flavor notes of faint chocolate intermingle with overripe fruit and roasted caramel apples. Finish is sweet and lingering, yet creamy and biting all at the same time. Very good.

stouby (3728) - Holbæk, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2005
Draught, at Rover. Dark brown with light brown head, nice lacings. Unfiltered. Aroma and flavor of malt (roated, resin and caramel) and hops (flowers and pine). Well balanced. Great beer.

Very dark but clear, the off-white head dies slowly. A steady bead rises up the side of the glass. The nose is rich, heady & malty, mouthwatering. A rich malty palate lingers on the tongue for ages. A quality beer...one to savour.
