330ml bottle: BBE Nov 17. Poured into a Westmalle Trappist chalice at home on 1st July 17, the last beer in a mini-tasting session with myself. Mahogany colour, clean looking: the head a thin off-white wispy affair. Malty front to the brew, semi-sweet throughout, slight bitterness in the lasting finish.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2016 330ml Bottle, Booths. Pours clear coke-like dark brown. Medium carbonation. Big frothy head as expected but very quickly disappears to a lace. Faint dandelion & burdock aroma with some background Belgian-esk estery notes and alcohol.Taste is sweet, slightly creamy and super malty with very subtle spice and a strong licorice and a distinct dandelion & burdock vanilla end-taste. A lingering sweetness masks the ABV. Style is weakly reminiscent of Abbaye de Rochefort beer but not as tastey, complex or full bodied. Depending on what you think this beer is trying to be it?s quite tasty or a little lacking in flavour for the style, but still enjoyable and very drinkable for the strength. comperchris (142) - - JUN 2, 2016
Boy did I need this! Very tasty with toasty maltiness. Expensive and there are better examples for the pricelikeatrainwreck (573) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2016

Not sure why there’s so many poor reviews for this, I thought it was a good dubbel, and ticked all the right boxes. STACETHEMACE (1) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2016 does not count
Bottle from House of Trembling Madness, York. Lukewarm. Pours a deep red colour, with a quick head. Really strong dried fruit notes on the nose, dates, raisins with a slight alcohol. Big punchy flavours of chocolate and dried fruits with a nice malt hit, slight hop towards the end. Really glad we have such a tasty traditional Abbey Dubbel in North Yorkshire
