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.

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.

bottle: thin foamy head, no lacing. Wonderful aroma, a bit lighter body than expected. If there is a bad Trappist beer I haven´t found it yet...as I recall I prefer the Trippel a bit more but the Dubbel is a solid beer in its own right.

From 0.33L bottle. Pours murky, dark brown with a huge, light brown head. Heavy malty aroma, dark bread, dark chocolate, slightly coffee. Slightly yeasty aroma, dough. Also dark fruits like raisin recognizable. Slightly sweet initial taste, full flavor of roasted malts and a bit coffee. Moderate bitterness and very slightly acidic. Long finish, slightly bitter, also slightly sweet aftertaste. Medium to full bodied with a good carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a slightly dry finish.

Burberry aroma. Dark coffee color, head quickly goes away. Found it a bit more simple. Taste goes away quite quickly leaving same candy and Burberry aftertaste

Bue une première fois 1 an APRES date de péremption : douce , on ne sent pas l’alcool. Très spéciale, sent le vin et le raisin sec, et à un goût que je ne sais pas décrire. Top! C’est celle-ci que je note. Bue une seconde fois 1 an et demi AVANT date de péremption : brune beaucoup plus dans les standards. Toujours cette odeur de raisins sec mais plus le goût de vin en bouche. Moins douce. Paraît plus sombre que la 1ere fois. Bonne mais mieux vaut la garder 2 ans en cave (voire plus ?)

Some banana, yeast and sweet malts on aroma.Sparkling. Even a lottle light bodied. Aroma is stronger than taste. Good one.

Sødlig og let maltet. En del kraft fra alkoholen. En klassiker som skal nydes en stille aften.

Mooi donker bier met een goeie schuimkraag. Een volle smaak, subtiele geur en een fijne, lichtdroge nasmaak. De beste dubbel die ik ken.
