Robe brune. Nez puissant sur les épices, la banane, la levure, les fruits compotés. Bouche à l’attaque moelleuse, belle bulle, fine acidité et finale équilibrée. Un belle trappiste, juste un cran en dessous de Rochefort.

Pours dark brown with a huge frothy tan head consisting of pretty big bubbles that leave a thin lacing. Rich fruity aroma of malt, sweet yeast, marzipan, ripe banana and something resembling coca cola. Full body, thick feel, soft carbonation. Taste is quite bitter and spicy with green apples, caramel and a hint of licorice. Long lasting dry finish.

Lekker bruine dubbele trappist, niet meer en niet minder. Lekkere volle smaak en een mooie fles.

Batavi (60) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2015
Uitgeschonken in 25cl. Westmalle bokaal. Kleur is mahonie kleurig roodbruin, met beige volle roodachtige schuimkraag. De geur is een mix van gedroogd fruit, en Belgische gist. De smaak is zeer goed en complex voor een dubbel. Perfecte zoet en droog balans. Smaken van banaan, rozijnen, brood, chocolade, lichte aarde tonen en als afsluiter een verfijnde delicate hop toets. Het mondgevoel is aangenaam, met een perfecte carbonatie, en fluwelige smaak. De afdronk is zacht en aardachtig met delicate hop. De Westmalle Dubbel Trappist is een klassiek Belgisch bier, het voorbeeld van een perfecte Dubbel. Net als de Tripel een uitstekende Trappist, uniek bier in kwaliteit en smaak.

Saturday night pre-dinner pour is beautiful brown with a plush cap of loose foam. Heavy fruits on the nose. The fruit stylings carry through on the tongue. It’s essentially a fruit salad (muted banana, unripened pears, green apple, white grapes & dates) with a caramel & slight hint of chocolate.North American wanna-be Belgium stylists could learn about restraint from a bottle of this. Awesome.

Aroma strikes me with dark candi syrup. toffee, figs, dark fruits in general. A hint of chocolate. This aroma is very delicate and complex. Not in-your-face as most beers nowadays. Flavor is also very delicate. Flavors of dark fruits and candi syrup greets you with hints of vanilla and cocoa. Delicious.

Kastanienbraun, grobporiger Schaum. Überraschend viel Kohlensäure . In der Nase deutliche Malzaromen , wie Schokolade, Kaffee gepaart mit fruchtigen Noten von Waldfrüchten und Dörrpflaumen, Was sich dann im Mund deutlich bestätigt. Feine Resezenz. Im Nachtrunk kommt eine leichte, lang anhaltende Bittere. Alles in allem ein sehr ausgewogenes, interessantes Bier. Mir schmeckt’s wunderbar. Ich würde es zu einem kräftigen wildgericht Trinken.

Practically exemplary dubbel. Excellent balance. Sweetness passing in astringency. When heated, the taste is only strengthened and improved.

Nice and dark with a little kick that's hard to explain. Almost likenit has a little extra carbonation. Good beer. Nice head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
