Bottle from Belgianbeershop.com. Head: beige, thick, stable, nice lacing. Color: dark red brown, very beautiful. Aroma: filled with roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, caramel. The taste is very well balanced with a fantastic full mouthfeel. Notes of caramel and banana. Very long finish. This is a fantastic trappist, almost as good as the tripel.

Perfect off-white head. It looks delecious. Aroma is sweet, with some roasted malts in the background. Taste, raisins, belgian yeast, caramel, maybe some esters, piney and earthy tones aswell, a bit roasty at the background again. Long aftertaste. I feel the alcohol warming inside. A perfect dubbel imo. Med carbo and med-full body.

This is a terrific abbey dubbel. I can’t place my finger on it but I do like Chimay Red better. Could be that I grew up drinking Chimay and have a special place in my bier heart for that grog. I did like this well built brew. Nice head, flavor, mouth feel and aftertaste. Love it!

33 cl bottle. Medium brown, generous beige head, which lasts for a few minutes. Starts quite sour (a little too so) and a little metallic then brown sugar, caramel, raisins. Light bitter finish. Medium body, average carbonation. Very good one. A belgian tasty brown that it is easy to drink, not so usual...

Ik ben zeker fan van dubbel bieren maar deze vindt ik eigenlijk niet heel geweldig. Hij is redelijk zoet kwa smaak met een wat droge afdronk. Mooie schuimkraag op het bier.
