3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Interesting aroma that reminded me of warm whole wheat toast and apple butter. Brown with tan head that settles down and skims the top of your beer untill you are finished with it. Highly carbonated which a took a bit away in my opinion. Extremely rounded flavor of Chrdonnay and raisins. Rich lingering finish. Highly drinkable.

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.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very good dubbel. Nice aroma of ripe fruit like bananas, plums and cherries. Bitter-sweet taste which is nearing red wine. Nicely hidden alcohol. One of the best dubbels in the world. No doubts.
