A reddish brown trappist ale, malty and fruit, featuring a 3 week secondary fermentation. This ale has a full, pale yellow head. The bouquet is full of esters and fruitiness. Notes of ripe banana predominate. The taste is fruity and slightly bitter, with a long, dry finish.

Bottle pours an opaque brown with a medium light tan head. Lively carbonation, good retention, decent lacing. Aromas of plum, toffee, and roasted malt. Tastes sweet up front, raisins, caramel, with a bitter alcoholic finish. Not quite the alcohol-masking I’ve come to expect from abbey dubbels.

SkillsFactory (24) - ITALY - APR 20, 2015
Marrone scura, quasi impenetrabile, schiuma nocciola chiara di media persistenza. Al naso banana matura e malto; man mano che si scalda note oleose ed alcoliche, leggermente pungente. Classico sapore di Dubbel: frutti rossi, malti torrefatti, amaro sul finale. Molto carbonata, corpo medio-leggero.

samzim (291) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2015
Caramel and yeasty aroma with notes of honey. Clear mahogany colour. Bitter front caught me off guard; notes of banana, toffee, and black coffee. Medium in body and carbonation. Nice, but a bit too bitter for my desire of a Dubbel.

One of the very few trappist beers I don’t like. Too dark, too bitter. Not recommended.

Poured with a large tan head with tiny bubbles, beautiful mahogany colour when held to the light. Boozy yeasty bubblegum on the nose. Thin body with a massive boozy hit, bitterness comes through leaving a tacky mouthfeel and a desire for another sip. Sweet banana at the back of the pallet. Perfect for the style.

Thanks to Maxbier. Pours Brown with off white head. Toasted malt aroma with some yeast. Sweet caramel malt start with some fruity notes and yeastiness. Very smooth brew.
