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 beer had a sweet carmel smell with a nice head and attractive lace. Solid brown color and full body. Finished smooth with a bitter fruitiness.

Looks great, like a Coke. Dark with a thick creamy head. Sweet, caramel, fruit, plum aroma. Medium bodied, fizzy. Slightly metalic, maybe a little soy saucey. Nice flavor with sweetness, fruit and caramel.

What a disappointment. I love a good dubbel and they are hard to find. This one has little to offer for a rather expensive beer. There is a light apple aroma which makes me think the beer might have been spoiled, but the best by date was over a year away and it was stored appropriately. A dark brown beer. Malt flavor, but not nearly enough of it; and no fruit at all. Thin body, and clear appearance. I will have to try it again, but I didnít like their their tripel either so maybe there is something about this brewery that doesnít work for me.

11.2 oz bottle. Pours a deep, dark brown with a thick, light brown head that lasts forever. Nice lacing throughout. Nose is weak, but follows the style - dark fruits, black cherries and a bit of malt. Flavor is more malty, with the fruit blending in nicely. Body was more watery than expected, and the flavors weaker than other dubbels I have tried. Finish is clean and just a touch dry. Overall, nice, but the body and weakness were disappointing.

stabatrehab (6) - Fort Myers, Florida, USA - JAN 7, 2006 does not count
Poured darker brown. Dense head that settles fine. Very weak nose-semi bad bottle? Recommended on the cooler side(45-50) but I have to bring up in usual range for complexity.Malts are there.Any fruit I canít get.Certainly warm and smooth but flavors are hinted but distant and out of focus-faint chocolate. Straw on the aroma now. Something begs to try again despite score. Forgive me as this is my first rating and I am not the wordsmith.

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JAN 6, 2006
Bottle served in my St. Bernardus glassware: Poured a medium brown hue with an initial large fizzy head and okay lace. The aroma has notes of fig, dried date, apple, cardamom, bubblegum, and earthy esters. The taste follows suit with a lot of fruity characteristics on top of a rich malt base a just a hint of mild spice. A little bit of tartness pops in and out as well. The feel is smooth and medium-bodied that is very much a drinking pleasure. One solid beer for sure and glad to have finally thought about rating it after all this time.

The aroma is dark fruit, raisins, malt, alcohol, sugar, and yeast. The appearance is dark brown purple with a nice foamy head. The flavor is fruity, sweet, salty, and bitter with some raisins and a little coffee as well. The palate is thin for an Abbey Dubbel. The finish is dry. Overall itís a good beer but my expectations were higher.

An extremely good dubbel beer. I think I like this a smidgen better than the Konings Hoeven, but not by much. The only Dubbel I like better is Chimay Red. This is a wonderfully flavorful beer with the taste of figs and plums, etc.

bmxutos (161) - Lisboa, PORTUGAL - JAN 3, 2006
Bottle, 33cl. Pours a cloudy dark brown with reddish hints and a beautiful tan head, mostly lasting. Nice lacing. Aroma is very good, mostly spices and malt. Flavour isnít as complex as expected. It has notes of roasted malt, fruits and spices and a fine dry finish. Full body and moderate carbonation. I must confess i was expecting a little more of this one. Nevertheless, a very good beer.
