Malt and spice aroma, a softer malted but yet full taste with the freshen your breath spice aftertaste. doesnt have your usual Trappist overbearing alcohol presence. I like it better than the tripel. More of what I look for in beer, as opposed to most other Belgian ales, which seem more like thick meads.

Beerbistro Winterfest and Vintage Tasting. Dark orange amber colour with a thick, creamy, and frothy tan head. Fruity, caramel, spicy, and toffee aroma. Nice fruity, caramel, toffee, and lightly spicy flavour with a lightly acidic finish. Medium to full bodied, lightly prickly mouthfeel.

jercraigs (8423) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 13, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2006 November 2006. Bottle from LCBO. Dark brown body with a good sized khaki head, and moderate lacing. Sweet malty aroma, with notes of raisins and dark fruit with a solid alcoholic kicker to finish it off. Sweet malty flavour has notes of caramel , muted raisins and caramel, and very mild ambiguous fruit. Alcohol is warming but not particularly prominent. Medium to full bodied palate is smooth but not heavy. Personally a touch more weight would be nice, but not necessary. (3+) Quite pleasant. 7/4/ 8/3+/18 - 3.9 <P> November 2004. Ruby brown body with an average tan head. Sweet malty aroma, some dark sugars (brown sugar, candi sugar?). Sweet malty flavour with pleasant touch of sugars again, some vague notes of chocolate. Very nice but seemed simplistic, may need to try this one again though given that it was precided in the evening by an Old Crustacean. Nice palate, I enjoyed this one a lot. 6/3/8/4/18 - 3.9

In the bottle. Dark reddish pour with a gargantuan dark beige head. Aroma of chocolate and cherries. Strong malt body that is quite buttery. Not quite the outstanding flavor that I had expected, but very good.

Robust vinous aroma with dried fruits, roasted malts, and hints of chocolate, and banana yeasts. Cloudy orange and amber colors with a delicate light tan head. Yeasty, slightly sour and astringent. Dry. Has milky flavors. Lots of milk? Some roasted notes. Improves as it warms.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Bottle. Dark brown with a large off-white head. Cinnamon, banana, dark bread and malty aroma. Roasted malts in the body, more banana, lingering chocolate notes. A well balanced and solid dubbel.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Bottle: Deep mahogany brown color with a medium, fizzy, light tan head. Aroma is malty, vinous grapes, alcohol, yeast, fruit. Taste is initially very carbonated but that quickly backs off allowing the sweet and sour malt, fruit, yeast, and some chocolate, grapefruit, citrus, pepper, and bitter wood. Nice balance between the sweet, bitter, and sour here.

ericnixon (741) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Dark brown color with a phenominal bready, spicy aroma that invites the taste that doesn’t disappoint. Wonderfully malty with continued spiciness. Great beer.

davesarman (159) - Waconia, Minnesota, USA - NOV 6, 2004
Exquisite aroma of fruit, malt and spice. Brownish color, good carbonation, dense head that forms fast then fades, but manages to hold on to the surface of the beer. Initially very fizzy and dry on the tongue. As it warms and breathes, the flavors start to come out of hibernation. Malt and spice. This is not a sweet beer, nor is it exceedingly tart. A good balance is presented, along with a slight warming finish. Not a bad beer, but I’ve had other Belgians that have impressed me more.
