Nice dark colour, good head with average retention. Some flaky yeast bits sink to the bottom of the goblet. Complex aroma of fruits (plums and cherries), sweetness, malty caramel, chocolat and finally some yeasty banana. Fruitiness dominates, but this is actually very pleasant as it smells like ripe fruits. No chemical aroma whatsoever. The fruits and malts come back in the taste as well, but fruit no longer dominates. There is a smooth bitterness that sets the tone and harmonizes well with the sweet fruits and caramels. The beer feels creamy like a Chouffe. Because the bitterness restricts the sweetness, you can taste bread as well. Malty goodness. Very refreshing with modest alcohol. This is such a nice beer, complex and characterful.

330ml at home. Very good Belgian dubbel, well-balanced with dark fruits and a little bitterness.

The beer pours dark, mahogny colored with a hughe, three finger high, brownbeige, head.

Nose: Brown sugar, dark syrup, hazelnut, fudge, caramel, dark bread, raisin, plum, marzipan, dark fruit, cherries and caramel malt. Itís a very beatiful nose!
Taste: Nuts, a hint of roasted malt, caramel, brown sugar, coffee, alcohol, biscuit, hops and burned sugar. The taste isnt really up to the quality of the nose.
Body: Medium to full body. High carbonation. A bitter aftertaste.

A great double!

Dejlig let spændende mørk trappistøl igen. Fin balance og på ingen måder tung. Dog ikke den bedste trappistøl....

Pours a dark brown color, topped with a medium sized beige colored creamy head. Malty aroma, yeasty with some fruity notes and a tad of alcohol. Taste is mild ysweet, malty with yeasty presence. A bit of fruity presence can be felt. Almost no bitterness but a slight alcohol burn feeling - not too strong. Drinkable, though Iím not a big fan.

Muddy brown color with light brown head. Dark fruit aroma with some spices and yeasty esters. Taste starts also yeasty with some raisin notes but itís not a sweet beer. Itís quite balanced and drinkable. The alcohol is also barely noticeable. Really good example for the style.
