vadavid (142) - Fredericksburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Date stamp of 18/12/08. The beer pours a dark brown color, reminiscent of root beer, with a frothy light brown head. The head soon drops leaving behind a thin ring. The aroma is very subtle and we struggled to come up with specifics. It’s mostly lightly sweet malt, with some faint dark fruit and a mild spice note. The taste is as easy on the palate as the aroma was on the nose. Malt and caramelized brown sugar come to mind. There’s a hint of cinnamon noted. The finish is dry and mildly bitter, with a lot of carbonation felt on the tongue.

Big tan frothy head with very good retention. Dark, coppery brown colour. Aroma is dark ripe fruit (prune), caramel and yeasty. Complex taste, bitter-sweet, dark fruit(prune), banana, toasted caramel, almond and cherry. Yeasty, very ’trappist’.

nephirem (246) - CROATIA - SEP 25, 2016
Bottle, 0.33l. Pours hazy, deep amber/brown body with thick, medium sized, lasting beige head. Smell is very pleasant, floral and fruity, a touch of sour cherry and vanilla. Full body with thick and oily texture. Carbonation is on the higher end, but really soft on the tongue. Really nice mouthfeel. Lovely balanced bittersweet taste. Rich and complex aroma - yeast, caramel malts, brown sugar, herbs, flowers, dark fruits and berries. Long finish with slight alcohol burn on the tongue. Overall, delicious.

ulrikolsen (338) - DENMARK - SEP 22, 2016
Tap. Pours clear reddish brown with beige head. Aroma has light malt, crystal malt, caramel, winegum and is slightly roasted with a sweet end to it. Taste is malty with light malts, caramel, toffee, winegum, roasted notes, a little grassy hops and is semi-sweet yet balanced. A great dubbel!

copestx (103) - Vesterbro, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2016
750ml bottle. Dark fruit and vineous aroma. Super malty and yeasty on the palate, almost zero bitterness, prunes and figs. Alcohol well hidden. Not my favorite style but I can’t imagine it being executed better!

rjplumer (1003) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 15, 2016
A dark fruit wine aroma. A close to pitch black with hint of ruby body. The head settles to a bubbly half inch or so. A dried fruit taste. Reminds me of heavy wine. Has bold tartness. Bubbly with clean warming finish.
