Pours a very deep red. Aroma is of alcohol. Flavor is fruity, mostly cherries. Nothing really stands out though. I thought this would be more flavorful. Oh well itís good for a try and better than most.

Dark burgandy with a small tan head. The aroma was big, with yeast, fruit, and malt. As it warmed, it had a nice alcohol burn but was really silky and easy to drink.

Murky red / brown colour with light brown head. Aroma is malty with caramel and nuts. Flavor is not as powerfull as I had wanted. It has some malts, but it is not as complex as other dubbelís. Finish is acidic.

Brown with a big head on pouring that soon dissapears.Very full flavour that explodes in your mouth Not as complex as I had anticipated but still a very good example of this style.

hopdog (9525) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2004
Poured a cloudy reddish brown with a frorthy off white head. Some particles. Aromas of malts, raisins, light spices, and light yeast. Tastes of bread, spices, raisins and other tastes mixed in there. Lively carbonation. Another solid Trappist brew.

Brown with a off white head. Smells like bubble gum and some other smells I canít put my finger on. The smell of this offering is absolutely amazing. Definately on of the better smelling beers I have had. Texture: creamy with bubbles and fizz. It is hard to describe what this tastes like. The portioning is outstanding. So many flavors at mild levels it all mixes together to form something great. I find it hard to pick out individual flavors. I tasted chocolate, raisin, some fruit taste. It even has tasty belches. When you belch and it tastes good you know it is good. I paid $5 for a 12 oz bottle. Man if this wasnít so much money I would drink this heavily.

A great double. It has more complexity and mouthfeel than Chimayís counterpart. Definately a very drinkable beer.

Beautiful dark brown color with strong head. Rich and sweet, with very mild alcohol flavor. Very good. Iím glad the universe didnít explode when I served this in a Chimay glass.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2004 330ml Bottle. A fine example of the Abbey Dubbel style. Rich dark brown colour, with a large head. Lovely lacing left on the side of my Chimay glass. Sweet and rich fruity flavours, with a hint of alcohol.
