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.

Suttree (5265) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 6, 2004
Dense, reddish brown with a large sandy head that quickly subsides. Savory, oaky and fruity aromas dominate. Very definate grape flavors, as well as some vegatable flaovrs, too - asparagas, maybe? Nice crisp, dry hops throughout the body. Finishes kinda weak, but still a nice brew.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2004
Bottle w/exp 19/08/05. Clear copper beer with no head and no lace. And next to no aroma. Mild flavor, and very drinkable.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAR 2, 2004
Dark brown color with hints of red and a thick tan head. Aromas of malt, toffee and dried fruits. Fruit, nut and malt flavors. How about a Trappist cereal? Smooth body and crisp finish.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2004
Bottle conditioned. Richly malty aromas with alcohol raisins and faint roast aromas. Balanced and very drinkable. Rich and tasty but lacking depth.

chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 29, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2004 Yeast, burnt malt, caramel, treacle toffee, raisins, candy, citrus - it's all in here, and very well put together too. However, try as I might, I just can't help but find these abbey dubbels a bit cloying. The first couple of sips are wonderful but, by the time I get to the end, it's all just too sickly to really rave about.

mickblueeyes (106) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 28, 2004
This chocolate brown beer has a rich, foamy, light brown head with nice lacing. Soft fruits waft from the glass, surrounded by light caramel and toasted grains. The medium-bodied palate is creamy with light herbaceous hops and dried figs. The finish is silky with a touch of unsweetened chocolate and oak.

Nice burgundy color with an off-white head. Prunes, grapes, and other spices dominate the aroma. Nice taste. Smooth. Dry fruits, spices in the taste. Very well balanced. Nice Dubbel.

clutchrogers (90) - Broussard, Louisiana, USA - FEB 27, 2004
pours breown with copper highlights fluffy head that fades to a thick lace. aromas of nuts, sweet malt, plums, figs cookie dough, yeast, faint orange. moderate body starting sweet with caromel and fruitness light cherry flavor, syrup balnced by orangy hops. orange lingers and slowly fades. hints at syrupy sweetness but well balanced with a fruity hop making a fruity beer to sit and think about.

Crockett (1012) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2004
Coca-Cola appearance. Huge pillow, lacey head. Yeast and alcohol nose. Bitter burnt sugar, alcohol warmth. Slight coffee, caramel, and herbs. Very smooth and deep. I enjoyed this one more than the tripel.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2004 Amber reddish body with a foamy tan head. Aroma is strong and sweet fruity and malty with obvious berries notes. Very delicious! Flavor is nice but not too heavy. Sweet berries and fruit with a little alcohol underneath.
