Bardzo dobre ciemne piwo. Wiadomo belgijska szkola piwowarska. Wiec i tu mamy mocne wysycenie, wielka czape piany, a takze aromat nie chmielny ale bogato slodowy. Nuty sfermentowanych jablek, a w smaku karmel i daktyle, troche w koncowce winny smak co daje lekka wytrawnosc. Alkohol dosc niski jak na ten kraj. Bornyensis (321) - BELGIUM - DEC 5, 2015
Nogal een donkere bruine kleur, zachte bittere smaak, voldoende schuimkraag. jimhilt (2621) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 11, 2007
Explodes out of bottle, took 5 minutes to pour, fades slowly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Murky amber color, ton of yeast in bottom of bottle. Strong carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Raisin nose. Flavor is sweet and sour raisins, smooth easy to drink, this small bottle is not enough. Lubiere (14133) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2006
Brown ale, hazy, with a nice thick moka head. Burned caramel aroma with lactic notes and vanilla. In mouth, sweet burned malt with acid points and nice nuttyness. Mondial 2005. doughert82 (20) - Bay Area, California, USA - JUN 18, 2006
From a dated bottle: Different from most Belgian bruins. Aromas and flavors overwhelmed by grapes, more like a lambic than a bruin. "Lively" carbonation and dark pour. Not even close to what I expected, but in the long run, a very unique and enjoyable experience.

Poured in the Bavik Pilaar Trappist glass. Muddy chestnut brown pour with really nice foamy head and foam lacing. Pleasant toasty slight spice aroma that moves into a nice pallet filler. Smooth with malts and grains with that Belgian Dubbel full flavor and no real bitterness. Liked this better than the blonde. Excellent Belgian, really enjoyed it and I will look for more.

mooie volle schuimkraag met redelijk koolzuurgehalte,.
mooie elegante bitterzoete, kruidige en karamelachtige smaak, die in de nasmaak lang romig zoet/bitter blijft hangen.
weetje: etiket komt van schilderij van

33 cl bottle, ’03. Gigantic, rocky tan head with yeasties, sits on top of a brown body. Taste is tangy right away with some dried grape and chocolate. The head takes up half the glass, so ya gotta be careful pouring. Listed on RB as a Belgian Ale, the label states it’s a tripel. Not getting enough sweetness for that, but oh well. Some candy sugars are evident with medium carbonation. An enjoyable beer I’d drink again. rederic (3341) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 15, 2005
Hazy dark brown color, with a nice tan-colored foamy head, with a sweet malty note, with molasses, brown sugar, fruity of dates, browm malt aromas follow through on a medium-bodied palate with brown sugar, molasses, chocolatey note, toffee, dark fruits, dates, good malty accent and carbonation, leading towards a sweet fairly malty finish.
