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.

Butelka 0.75L. Brunatne z drobinami drożdżowymi. Piana skąpa, jasnokremowa, szybko znika. Aromat: bardzo ładny mocno chlebowy, lekko słodki, chleb ciemny ze śliwką, brązowy cukier, rodzynki i wiśnie. Alkoholu nie czuć wcale. Smak: podobnie do aromatu, chlebowo, owocowo bez wyczuwalnego alkoholu. Lekko słodkie i kwaskowate zarazem. Goryczki prawie nie ma. Odczucia: ciało średnie, wysycenie średnie. Świetnie pachnie, przyjemnie się piję, choć jak dla mnie lekko za słodkie. Polecam.

one of those belgians just everyone should get to taste - one of the richest tasting trappists, better drink cellar temp than fridge

Banana-bready, sweet, a little chocolatey. Touch of booze but a nice dry finish given the sweetness midpalate. Reminds me of the banana chocolate chip protein muffin things from Trader Joes, in a good way.

Bottle at Winking Lizard Crosswoods on 4/12/14. Hazy brown pour with a huge tan head. Aroma of caramel, malt, dark fruit and slight banana esters. Malty and spicy flavor giving way to caramel and cherry before a dark fruit and slight alcohol finish.

Poured from a bottle, forming a tall head. Pleasantly sour at the start but it weakened a bit as I worked my way to the bottom. Considering the high 99 rating, I expected more from this beer. It was good; it was not great.

Bottle at Pie Whole. Dark brown pour with an off white head. Banana and clove aromas. Effervescent. A weird sort of bitter off taste dominates the caramel, brown sugar, banana, and clove. Average body and mouthfeel.
