COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Into my chalice, it poured a nice jet black with a superb nice foamy half-centimeter off-white head that lasted for most of the beer. No lacing whatsoever. The smell was centered around sugars. The taste had the same yet brought in a very slightly hoppiness in the maltiness. The mouthfeel is about a medium with a superior smoothness. Overall, good for style, and good for me.

Rating datant du 8 avril 2017. Bouteille en format 330 ml disponible via leur caisse de Mons assortis. Les épices et le caramel ressorte. Clairement la meilleure de la gamme Mons.

kinnery (4) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2017 tried on tap at the woolly in guelph, ontario. minimal head, opaque and dark in colour. notes of dates and black currant are hidden under the brutally strong tastes of vanilla extract (note: not vanilla, but that harsh flavour of straight vanilla extract) and licorice. i never thought i would find a beer too licorice-y, but this beer has no subtlety. i get the impression that they hoped you would pretend you liked it because it tried hard enough and you wanted to impress someone. it's okay, but definitely not something to seek out.

Very minimal head, dark brown ruby body with no visible carbonation. Strong molasses and licorice aroma, sweet mud kinda stuff that you get with these types. Flavour is heavy molasses, sugary Aunt Jemima syrup, and lots of cloying alcohol. No finesse to this equation, just brute force to build this thing and it shows.

Malheureusement la brasserie Belgh Brass a vécu un terrible incendie en avril dernier. Ils auront besoin de notre aide et de notre support. Pour moi, incendie ou pas, je cours me procurer ce délicieux produit d’une douceur ouatée qui ne peut que nous procurer un sentiment de bonheur. Acheté à la caisse, son prix est dérisoire pour son contenu. Pour les amateurs de ce style, voici une réponse agréable à un besoin grandissant!
Nez: Pain - Caramel - Fumé
Bouche: Noisettes - Muscade - Caramel

MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 12, 2017
My Bottom Line:
This sweetish Dubbel aligns raisins and caramel under coriander and licorice for a rich, desserty example of the style.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam quickly recedes to a ring atop the deep brown haze.
-Mouthfeel is sugary and prickly.
-Flavor profile also evokes vanilla and sasparilla.
-Drinkability is lower than the usual Dubbel’s.
-Alcohol is well hidden.

Bottle.

the sauger (110) - La Pocatiere, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2017
Bouteille de 750 ml. Arôme d’épices, de fruits secs, de malt et d’alcool. Goût d’herbes, de houblon et de lime. Bière assez intéressante.

3.1
piscator34 (2647) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 18, 2017
Bottle. Reddish brown in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of dried pit fruit, rose wine, black licorice, and sweet malts. Flavors are of sweet dark caramel malts, light anise-like spice, and cooked apple. Lighter bodied than expected, with a bit of a chalky note on the back end to balance out the sweet and the fruity notes. Decent for the style, but lacking in intensity.

3.6
ljthiessen (1438) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 18, 2017
Bottle. Dark brown, nearly black pour with a reddish hue, tan head. Aroma is dark fruits, Belgian yeast and spices, licorice, citrus, anise, plum, raisin, lots going on. Taste is a little sweet up front, the same dark fruit and spices, very flavourful but lighter body than expected for the ABV. Tastes more like a Belgian strong dark ale than a dubbel, but tasty.

3.2
northropfrye (3691) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 16, 2017
Bottle poured into Orval glass. Brown body, off-white head, not much lacing. Sweet aroma of plums, yeast, dried fruit and a hint of glue. Taste is sweet cola, and fruit, with a hint of anise, but pretty subdued. Palate could be more lively. Over all this was okay, but I felt it’s over-rated unfortunately.

Ne comprends jamais la sévérité snobinarde qui peut faire paraître un chef-d’oeuvre pour une petite bière de rien du tout, et me demande si les gens qui critique prenne le prix en compte pour relativiser la note. Ici, avec cette superbe Dubbel de 750ml pour 6 petit dollars, nous avons droit a une maîtrise du style sans prétention et toute en finesse, une double d’abbaye très légère pour sa teneur en alcool et facile a boire, qui n’a quasiment pas d’amertume et est coiffé d’une belle mousse et d’une carbonation moyenne mais présente (dans le bon verre). La palette se dévoile en couches, plus on en bois plus on découvre des notes de dattes, pruneau, cassonade, cacao, cajou, licorice, vanille, caramelle écossais, rhum brun, cerise noir (et non dr peper!!) etc. Belgh Brasseur est un maître du style belge et sa maîtrise atteint ici son paroxysme, a mon humble avis il s’agit de la meilleur Abbaye Brune a petit prix et je remercie Jean-Louis Marcoux de ne pas tombé dans le marché de luxe qui pète de la broue plus haut que leur cul! Aimer la bière c’est aimer en boire encore et encore et c’est d’autant plus apprécier a un prix honnête! Celle ci est de loin ma préférée de sa famille d’excellente bières. Vive la Belgique au Québec!
