yespr (31624) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2008
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.

Bottled. Brown colour with beige/brown mediumsized head. Leaves nice lacing. Caramel and malt in aroma. Very fresh aroma. Fruity and malty taste with hints of hops. Aftertaste is made of citrus and hoppy bitterness. Very wellbalanced.

omhper (19797) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2002
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.

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 4, 2003
UPDATED: APR 3, 2003 Dark amber color, creamy head. Nice aroma of malt and hop. Very good body, malty, robust bitterness; long final, not enough aromatic; a pleasure for your taste buds!

Keg
It's the only Trappist beer available in kegs (and I don't understand what's the need for that). It's good but not mature nor enough hoppy; it's a bit metallic and doesn't have enough character. [7-5-6-4-13]

A dark brown colour, with a rich malty aroma, and a complex deep rich malt flavour.
