scarletfire65 (1531) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Bottle at home. Reddish brown, huge fluffy cream colored head on the initial pour, recedes rather quickly. Aroma is raisins, sherry, ripe red plums, distant chocolate, a hint of phenol. The mouthfeel is spritzy and effervescent. Medium bodied. Lots of ripe red fruits. Also cooked fruit flavors. Slight oxidized flavor. Belgian yeast. Good spice palate. Slightly dry finish. Overall very good, drier than a lot of dubbels, not overloaded with candy sugars, and interesting fruitiness.

rumore (865) - Rimini, ITALY - JAN 4, 2018
33cl bottle at Circus, Rimini, Italy. Pours dark amber with creamy whitish foam, high and persistent. Aroma is intensely malty and caramel. Body is average, with just a bit of stickiness, and medium carbonation. Taste is sweet, but without much character. Finish is average.

330ml dark bottle, unfiltered, from BeerWulf. Ah, here's a pleasure, I thought I'd already rated this beer. I do like these malty living beers. Belgium make some of the most satisfying strong bottled beers in the world. I love the marriage of malt and yeast, and low use of hops. Each to their, but I'd rather a malty beer over a hop juice in a bland characterless malt any day of the week. OK, so this is not one of the best examples of a malty beer, but it's still quite drinkable.

Calisky (3150) - ALSACE, FRANCE - DEC 17, 2017
Couleur ambrée, légère mousse. Nez fruité un peu vieux fruits. Gout malté et vieux fruits un peu caramélisés et légères épices en fin de bouche. Bon corps. Fin sur le malté fruité un peu sucré.

VueltaBirrista (158) - Murcia, SPAIN - DEC 9, 2017
Abadía doble de color marrón rojizo. Al verterla en copa se forma toda una orgía de espuma, muy cremosa y de color marfil. Tanto el aroma como su sabor es una combinación de frutas del bosque, plátano y especias como el clavo. Agradable y cremosa en boca, dejando un final tostado, entre picante y amargo, muy rico.

pemak (43) - CROATIA - NOV 13, 2017
Bottle 0.33 , Dark amber to dark brownish pour with some off-white head. Nice lacing. The taste is sweet and kinda sour as well. It has nice malty caramel and coffee, some yeasty and fruity aromas. One can taste raisin and ripe fruit. Quite carbonated for the style.

malacka (44) - CROATIA - NOV 13, 2017
Dark amber to dark brown pour with an off-white head. There is a sweet, malty and yeasty aroma as well. There are also some fruity, plum and raisin aromas with coffee notes. Lively carbonation. Quite solid.

Mpuntmuts (368) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 12, 2017
Clear dark amber with a huge head. Bready malts and burnt sugar for aroma. Taste follows the nose. Medium body with quite the carbonation. Nice dubbel, nothing to go crazy over. I liked the blond better.

kustie (1377) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2017
Bottle. Brown color with tanned large head. Aroma yeast, caramel, fruits. Taste is malty sweet with quite long aftertaste. Flavors of caramel, dark malt, ripe fruits. High carbonation.
