Pours with an impressive head. A smooth foamy mouthfeel adds to the experience. This hasnít got the coffee/chocolate notes that Rochefort8 has. Nevermind - its still a great beer.

This one does nothing for me, the head is small and the aroma and flavour seem to be lacking. Next dubbel please.

Oakes (12612) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 31, 2002
Very dark, with full malty, raisiny, curranty and alcohol aromas and a mellow, smooth, but rich dark malt palate.

karsten (240) - odense, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2002
This rating is based on the exellent Westmalle Dubbel draught beer served in Carlsens Kvarter, Odense, Denmark. Fruity aroma, dark colour, it is fruity and deep in itís flavor. Truly a magnificent trappist ale.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2007 Best before June 09. Head is initially average sized, frothy/fizzy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy dark brown, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, milk chocolate, nuts, cookie), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), lightly hoppy (flowers), with light notes of raisin, plum, brown sugar, cinnamon, alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/creamy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Solid but short of awesome.

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2002
Nice creamy, bready, malty Trappist ale. Big head but quickly diminishes (good thing as far as Iím concerned). I like this much better than the trippel.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 20, 2002
Rich aroma with strong tones of apple. A highly complex taste with a blend of cherry, apple, and chocolate. Quite dry in the finish. An excelent beer.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 8, 2002
A fun beer to watch. Small bubbles that get bigger as you go up in the tall amber head. An amber orange color. Quite dry. Noted the darker fruits including cherries. A dry finish with flavors of hazelnut and toast.

I really donít know how to explain what I tasted in this beer, it was so complex, so much going on. Had a terrific aroma of a fine after dinner drink. The appearance was dark brown and reddish. The finish was dry and fruity. I absolutely love this beer.
