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.

A fine Dubbel. Plenty of malt to please this malt-head. I read somewhere that the brewery is so busy that the monks do supervisorial duties only while secular workers do the real labor. I would love to sit in on a labor dispute negotiation.

330ml bottle from The Beerhive. Big off white head, nice lacing. Clear dark reddish brown body. Fruity, malty nose, some banana, pear, bread. Flavour is bread, yeast, banana notes, gentle fruity bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation, good full mouthfeel, dry finish.

aroma is a great full bready smell, actually making me hungry. flavor drops the dough and gives a bit more of a floral flavor. a great wee taste.

Dégustée avec mon Appiantiqua.Jolie robe brune avec une mousse ivoire peu persistante et une bonne carbonatation.Le nez nous offre des odeurs de prunes,pruneaux et malts.La bouche nous amène sur des saveurs de fruits rouges,figues , banane...et nous laisse sur une belle douceur mêlée à une bonne amertume.Une très bonne trappiste avec beaucoup de "rondeur" pour une double!

appiantiqua (70) - Lyon, FRANCE - OCT 13, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2016 Goûtée avec mon Kittenbieer dans un verre Kasteel. Température de début 10 à 11 °. Très belle robe brune surmontée d’une mousse café au lait qui retombe assez vite; bonne carbonatation. Nez très agréable sur le pruneau et les malts. Goût dominé par une saveur de banane mais aussi de fruits noirs, le tout dans une belle harmonie. Finale longue avec un parfait équilibre douceur/amertume. Une très bonne trappiste et une excellente double. 16,5/20

Pours a deep brown on tap with fluffy tan head that dissipates to leave good lacing. Aroma of mild Belgian dark fruity esters, hint of chocolate and spice. Taste is the esters up front, spice in the middle, and then a dry burnt sugar finish. Soft carbonation, mild bitterness, really the best dubbel I may have ever had.

depeche (3) - Komenda, SLOVENIA - OCT 10, 2016 does not count
Very high in plums and dried cherries. Slightly spicy. Caramel. Bit of chocolate. Appearance acc. to description in bjcp style. A bit more brownish note in colour. Very raisinous, malty taste. Cloves. Follows aroma. Overall nice beer with a bit watery/dry finish in the end. I know it is said so, but..:)

kaserov (225) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 4, 2016
Color marrón muy oscuro, casi negro, completamente turbio, con capa de espuma amarronada de dos dedos de grosor (buena retención, mejor de lo esperado). Carbonatación media (perfecta en boca) Aroma a levadura, frutal y floral. Sabor frutal, con algo como tostado por ahí perdido, con un deje de amargor (no tan dulce como esperaba). El alcohol no se percibe ni en aroma ni en sabor. No capto el plátano y no capto el final seco. Muy buena.
