3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cL bottle. Pours murky brown with a lacing tan head. Aroma is light fruity, subdued malt and with a distinct dough yeasty note. Flavour is smoothly balanced between caramel malt, fruit notes. chocolate and a mild mellow yeast note. Ends with a lingering fruity and mild bitter finish. Solid dubbel, but in my book the weakest style made by the trappist brewers. This one is quite reminiscent of the Westvleteren Dubbel.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beautifully chestnut brown colour, hazy and crowned with beige head. Slightly bubble-gum/banana estery nose. Balanced sweetness and soft maltiness turning into a dry, hoppy finish. These Trappist monks know their stuff, but it’s not as good as, say Westvleteren. But then - what is?

A 1970s bottle sourced from a collector in Belgium. Cloudy brown beer, still carbonated! Sharp and sour with a dry bitter finish. Nice but a bit too dry.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2014 Muddy brown with tan head, sweet honey aroma. Full mouth with complex spiciness. Alcohol shows through more than most.
Just for fun: 1956 bottle: Crystal clear ruby amber color, small beige edge head. Aroma of caramel and butterscotch. Taste is oxidized burnt caramel. Interesting. For some reason I didn’t score it, though, too bad.
