330ml bottle from a German supermarket. Huge tan head with tiny bubbles which immediately becomes creamy and delicious. Reddish brown foggy body. Aroma of burned wood, dark fruits, spices and coffee. Nice fruity hop flavour. I like this one better than the tripel, because I find it more balanced. However, the taste of booze gets to me again. Apart from that, it’s excellent. Feels a tiny bit too thin in the mouth.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - aggressive pour. Very long lasting head of off while color and super tight bubbles. Dark and deep red color. initial aroma heavy on bread and malt with sour cherry finishing sweetly on the nose. Very reminiscent of the dubbel style. Mouthfeel is soft on the pallet; nice but expected a heavier body. Taste did disappoint at first with an almost cherry syrup on the first sip. Tons of carbonation, particularly upon second pour with a less aggressive pour. Afterword nice bread and malt notes with some dark fruit, mostly cherry. Overall, expected more from a dubbel, particularly from a Trappist. Woudja - Yes!

Nice banana, citrus and roasted malt aroma, taste is a lot roasted than aroma, but it is balanced with some strong hops in the beginning, but short lasting, quite nice since i am not a big fan of dark beers..

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle from The Cave, Glasgow (£2.99):
Rich and complex smell that begins with some dark fruits such as plum, raisin and cherries. There is a strong and sweet caramel malt aroma that follows this along with some sugar, prunes, dates and figs with tiny amount of alcohol.
Murky brown with a hazy appearance and a thin, one centimetre tall, light brown head that that turns to a patchy lacing
Strong and sweet dark fruit taste to begin with all the same fruits from the nose making an appearance, particularly the figs, raisins and dates plus some cherries and sugar. There is some toffee malts and a warming, light alcohol taste next with a hint of yeast and some caramel malts.
Sweet & well carbonated, medium body and a rich, complex taste that has a very good balance. There is some nice spice towards the end and the alcohol, hidden for the most part, is only noticeable in places and compliments the drink well with a nice, warming finish to it.
Very complex yet well balanced beer that was quite rich from the get go and dominated by dark fruits and sweet malts throughout. A really nice one that takes a while to open up but once it does there is no looking back.
