4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is an absolutely exceptional beer. There aren’t many things wrong with it at all. This Abbey Dubbel smells and tastes like Welch’s juice company brewed it. It comes out of the bottle very fizzy, with a ruby body and a substantial tan head. The smell is pure grape and prune juice. The taste is dominated by the grape and prune flavor, with some molasses in the background and something kind of smokey in there too. Every sip of this is a flavor explosion. I am definitely going to seek out more of this.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
0,33L bottle, BB 24.06.2015. Pours dark brown with off white head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is sweet, fresh fruits, apples, yeast, and malt. Taste is sweet, dark fruits, caramel, candy, and malt. Finish has some bitterness and tart. Overall: lovely beer and I’m sure it gets better over time. I would really love to try aged version one day.

Got a Dubbel and a Tribbel from my host in antwerpen and told to mix them. Called a "trip trap".

Un super produit, encore une fois ! Equilibre parfait, alcool présent mais pas trop. Finale gentiment sèche et belle longueur.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. I had looked at this for a long time and not pulled the trigger in lieu of other beers, so now is as good a time as any. Pours a cloudy brown with a large tan head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma and flavor have caramel malts, brown sugar, candi sugar, dark fruit, some banana, with a mild bittering component. Medium-bodied, sweet and malty. I like Rochefort, Westvleterren and some of the other traditional breweries better.

Poured a cloudy brown with quite a bit of head. Candy sugar and cloves come across in the nose. Same flavors are present in the mouth as well where a nice medium bodied beer goes down quite easily. Other flavors include some fruit and a slight spicy tang.
