Bottle from Systembolaget (28 kr). Quite okay, but not my favourite style of beer.

Serapac (102) - CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle, Le Vieux Saint-Josse, Brussels. One of my early favourites among the Trappist bears and Belgian ales more generally. Although I moved on since, this is still a very nice double. Reddish brown, beige head, dominated by roasted malts, cloves, wood. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Being brewed within the walls of a Trappist abbey on a small scale under the supervision of the monks is a good thing. This beer wowed me.

Big foamy head. Aroma of pine and roasted malts. Pretty bitter and full roasted flavour and wood. Dry and dried red fruits. Bitter dry aftertaste, nice!

This is the beer that made me fall in love with Trappist Beers alltogether actually. It was love at first sight and smell. Beautiful thick, dark, & heavy but light. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0,33 l in Westmalle trappist glass. Dark red brown colour, clear liquid. Fruity nose as well as aroma. Begins slightly sweet and ends with dry bitterness. Somewhat creamy texture. Medium to full body. Lively carbonation. Great beer.

Mainuh_man (113) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2014
0.33L bottle. Pours clear dark red-brown with a rocky tan head. Really nice, and noteworthy aromas. Clove, bubblegum, rubber (not unpleasant), plum. Very mild sweetness at beginning, transitions to almost nothing in the middle, then the bubblegum sweetness kicks in, followed by yeast and resiny/herby hop biterness. Medium-full body with an oily mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, on the herbier side for a dubbel (not too sweet). Some really nice aromas, but flavor profile is somewhat muted.

Cloudy brown pour with half a glass of white/cream colored head. Dark fruits on the nose with moderate banana, raisin, and hop taste. Great dubbel that makes me wish that I would have bought more than one.

mathieuc (1262) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 26, 2014
Pours a nice brown with a ruby highlight with a medium offwhite head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of bread, dark fruits, light candi sugar and some subtle spices. Taste is of raisins and other dark fruits, moderately sweet. Light banana. Body is medium and carbonation just too high for my liking. Finish is slightly bitter and spicy. Overall a fine dubbel, it didn’t quite reach my expectations for it but it was still really fine!
