COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Dark chestnut pour with a very creamy mocha colored head with good thick lacing. Sweet malty aroma, hard to place my finger on what it reminds me of, sherry perhaps. Mouthfeel is just a tad too thin for the style and a bit too much carbonation. Flavor has some essences of sherry again, and not too much else - pretty one dimensional, but not bad. Perhaps a bit of Christmas spices.

Aurelius (4178) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2004
Dark hazy toffee color, good yoked bottle, traditional label. Rich aroma, of yeast, dessert wine and fruit. Sweet, fizzy and tastes a bit like sweettarts candy. Some leather and spice. The finish and body were wierd -- fizzy, with riffs of aspirin bitterness, vanilla, sugar sweetness and molasses, but overall it was a little thin. Still, a quality beer.

Does not come up to the standards of othes Trappist dubbels. Taste and mouthfeel are both too thin.

Healthy lasting tan head. Plenty of carbonation, a nice ruby red color. Rich full flavor, tastes of red grapes, maybe some plums. Very fruity taste, only hints of alcohol come through. Finishes nice and sweet.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2007 Brown color with medium head. Heavenly aroma of oranges with alcohol vapors. Spicy orange flavor with alcohol vapors. Medium body. This is an amazing beer, for me, Westmalle sets a standard for dubbels and trippels and the other breweries have to work hard to be up to that standard of quality.

330 ml bottle bb 09/05. Dark brown with a reddish tint and a large fading beige head. Delicious yeasty and malty aroma. Cherry, raspberry, dates, vanilla, and brown sugar. As it warms more raspberry and some chocolate comes out. Flavour is also nicely complex, malt and fruit are followed by a bit of herbal hops. Finish is warming with some spice and some cocoa notes.
