Bouteille expirant le 10/04/16, donc vieillie 21 mois. Robe d’un brun rougeâtre ne laissant filtrer qu’un mince filet de lumière. Col de mousse blanc plutôt dense et collant. Arômes de sucre candi, dattes, caramel salé, levures, baies foncées, pruneaux et épices festives. Nez intéressant, intense et d’une complexité moyenne à élevée. En bouche, saveurs se baies foncée confites, sucre candi et caramel. Suivent des notes de dattes et houblons nobles. Longue finale où le malt s’affirme et laisse sur le palais un goût à la fois âcre et sûr plus ou moins plaisant. Peut-être que le vieillissement commence à paraître. Je décèle également des saveurs de noisettes grillées. Texture légère pour le style et corps moyennement rond. Je vais devoir essayer une version plus fraîche mais ça reste une très bonne dubbel.

One of the more disappointing dubbels. The bitter and dark taste wasn’t really my cup of tea.

Pours a dark brown with a thick tan head and lots of lacing. Aroma of plum, raisin. Complex flavor of dark fruits; very tasty. Medium body with nice medium carbonation. Can’t do much better than this for a dubbel.

ippopotamo36 (1082) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 29, 2015
0,33 bottle BB16/09/2015 so I assume at least 3 years old. As I have opened it gave a little gush which proved the re-fermentation had some residual effects still or at least the carbonation was not over. In fact the appearance is incredible: tick and never-ending ivory-brownish foamy head, retention. Reddish dark color. Nice! Nose: a parfume of dry fruit with predominance of dry plums, under spirit cherries, so rich and elegant. Mouth: the declination of the flavors due to the aging provides a balanced sweetness which does not disturb at all. Sadly it stays a bit too flat, really. Some reminiscence of the young version, less carbo but same mild bitterness. For me not good for aging but a great one anyway.

0.33l bottle. Dark brown color with big beige head. Aroma is full of fruits, raisins, apple, pear, nuts, banana, spices, bubblegum and chocolate. Taste is sweet with dominant fruit character. Medium to full body and chewy character. Overall it’s great beer and complex beer.

This beer was amazing first and foremost. Excellent head, flavor was unrivaled, color was perfect, and there was nothing I could find to criticize about this ale!

Uit de fles geschonken. Mooi donkerbruin bier. Aroma en smaak van mout, gedroogd fruit, caramel. Lekker fris door het aanwezige koolzuur. Zeer prettig drinkbare donkere trappist.

Como todas las trapenses, una cerveza de extremada calidad. Muy equilibrada en todos los sentidos.
