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.

Para-plastic taste (donít ask). Nice dark fruity beer, but much, much thinner palate than I remember. Havenít tried it for a year or two, itís surprisingly thin, even after drinking real ales of much lesser alcohol content. Me thinks this beerís been internationalized. Shame!

A little too sweet for me, but has a rich and complex taste, as it is indeed a trappist. Fruity and rich. Great appearance and finish.

Hey hey, this isnt too bad. Rich in malt flavour with a good frutiy middle. The coulour is darker amber with a big white to light tan-ish head. The nose is malty and sweet, wheat and yeast is definately there. Overall not that bad, but I just dont think that I can get into too far with the trappists.

33cl bottle, best by date of 19/08/05. Pours a fairly large, creamy, off-white head. Clear reddish/brown body with a few small floaties. Weak aroma, really couldnít get much of anything from it. Flavor starts off with dark fruits and some sugar, with a slight bitterness in the finish. Medium body, lively carbonation, decent mouthfeel. What really killed it for me was the chalky, astringent finish. I suppose this keeps it drinkable, though not for me. Just wasnít feeling this one. Chimay Red is better IMO.

For some reason I did not expect a whole lot from this beer (I realize that is stupid), which is probably the best way to drink a good Belgian ale. I did not expect all the raspberry, bubble gum and chocolate. The whole thing verged on being rather Willie Wonka-ish. I truly need to drink this again to give an accurate rating. I would recommend it to anyone.

Bottle pours a thick cloudy brownish burgundy, two fingered frothy off-white head, respectable lacing, and small floaties about.   Dark pitted fruits on the nose.   Slightly vinous.   Iím already salivating!   Up front I get that dark pitted fruit, malts, slightly bitter.   Finishes with figs, dates, and molasses.   Slightly bready, slightly salty.   Was hoping for more plums and cherries, but none were to be found.   Still quite enjoyable.

Hazy brown. This is a complex, smooth, full flavored brew. Rich thick palate. Nice sweet and fruity flavor.... i think i tasted some rasberries. Those monks know whats up.

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2007 (Rerate 110507, prev 7-3-5-3-11) Cloudy and dark brown color with little yellow head. Aroma is rich with nuts, biting spicy hops, chocolate, brown sugar and toffee, rather sweet aroma. Medium bodied, pretty high carbonation. Flavor is somehow watery with syrup, chocolate, spicy lemon, some disturbing tangy metal also there in aftertaste with some yeast. Again this beer let me down, maybe next time...

330ml Best by date 19/08/05 Poured a hazy reddish brown with a thick dense head and looking very inviting. Aroma is both fruity and spicy with a peppery note. Flavor is slightly vinous, malty and notes of burnt sugar. The body is quite effervescent and with a lively carbonation. I was surprised at the vinous characteristics this Dubbel had. Overall a complex one for sure, maybe the most complex Iíve had thus far.

This is quite a beautiful pour, a deep ruby color, with a big two finger head, that fades slightly but still retains a nice foamy ring. The aroma is very fruity and yeasty, full of berries and cherries. You can definitely smell the candi and bubblegum aromas. The taste is slightly less than complex on first taste, very leathery, with some licorice and brown sugar. Very bready through and through. A solid beer, but slightly disappointing.
