330ml brown bottle. Surprisingly great mix of aromas in this one - tea, floral hop, bitter chocolate and fruit. Thick creamy off white head, tight beads. Leaves amazing streaky lacing in the Affligem glass. Beer is reddish brown and hazy. Caramel/dark malts up front, hops arrive mid way through and carry into the finish. Some yeasty aftertastes, and at times it seemed a bit to carbonated, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Mine says 7%, so I hope its the same one. Color is bowling ball purple-brown. Looks slushy. The head doesnt stick around. Aroma is molasses, deep toffee, plums and stone fruits. Extremely sweet in the nostrils. Sugar plums and spices. Needs to decant a bit to breathe. Once it does, the sugars subside and become less cloying/saccharine. The spices in the stone fruits bust out. The flavor is molasses at the back of the gullet, but sugary stone fruits at the front of the tongue. The booze is not invisible but also not intrusive. Its very grainy: the barley husk is very prevalent. There is a strong cola component that adds a corn syrupy flavor that I am not sure I love. Creamy thick feel, but very smooth and oily on the exterior. Its a good beer that needs to breathe. I also got it at a very, very good price: $4.99 for a bomber.

Light brown rosey color, no head. Sugary bready aroma. Medicinal herb bitterness. Malts and a doughy yeast aftertaste. Not bad, but to be fair its not my favorite style.

Mooie lichte geur van werkelijk waar ruik ik nu heel lichtjes gewoon banaan? En een mooie rode kleur doet het altijd goed. Het heeft een mooie fijne koolzuur. Niet al te heftig maar blijft aan het glas plakken. Beetje droog licht zoet met bananen smaak (weer?) Wel die bananen met bruine vlekken smaak!!! Maar moet zeggen smaakt wel met elke slok beter. Nauwelijks bitter te noemen. Maar wat van smaak proeven we buiten de bananen. Vanille, chocolade en heeeel klein beetje fruitig. Mooie bananen dubbel. Euhhh zijn bananen nu ook fruit????

Clear reddish brown, lasting beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, caramel, belgian yeast. Tastes sweet, roasted malts with some woody bitterness. Medium body with over medium carbonation. Very good.

Brownish red gorgeous. Caramel, figs, and other dark fruit on the nose. Luscious dark sugar and dates with moderate hops. Thick on the palate. Quite good. Tap at some bar in Amsterdam Canal Zone.

Bottle at home. Pours ruby red with big, fluffy bubbles. Tastes cloves, spices, yeast and fruitty esters. Medium carbonation, watery mouthfeel. Good.

gripweed57 (2159) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 8, 2017
From old tasting notes. Reddish brown color topped by a thick, bubbly beige head. Fruity malt aroma. Bittersweet toasted malt flavor with hints of sherry and Dr. Pepper. Zesty dry malty finish. Flavor improves as beer warms. Long, clingy sweet malt aftertaste.

Pours hazy amber/brown with a creamy beige head. The aroma contains malt, mocca, caramel, dark fruits and spices. It tastes medium sweet and medium bitter. Fruity onset, spicy finish, and a bit metallic. Medium body, creamy texture and lively carbonation - too strong. Cant shake the thought that it could have been better for an Abbey Dubbel.
