Bottle shared with McTapps. Hops in the back of the aroma is what I really appreciated. Aromas of salt, some nuts, alcohol and and bit caramel. Good quality with decent ABV make this one a solid classic. Thumbs up ! viktorvee (510) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2013
Decent Dubbel, although a touch too sweet perhaps. Malty, fairly standard... McTapps (6889) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - MAY 30, 2013
Light cloudy dark brown colour with steady creamy head and smooth body. Nose of nuts. Taste of light malt, nuts, brown bread, vanilla, torf, woods and wine cellar. Easy and nice to drink, really quaffable. Good and solid Abbey Dubbel. Xstream (242) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2013
Not very impressed. It’s kinda bland and boring. There is some hint of dried fruits with caramel and nuts, but very faint. Has a mild sweetness to it. Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - APR 24, 2013
On tap at the brewery in Brugge. Poured redbrown with a nice white head. Aromas of dark fruit, caramel, brown sugar. Some earthy notes too. Finishes a little sweet.

Pours a dark, hazy brown with a decent, non-lacing head. Complex aroma of apples, leather, earth, dark cherries, and raisins. Earthy,taste with subtle sweetness and a hint of sourness as well. Hops come thru towards the end. Finishes with a winelike character. Creamy and full on the palate. JefVerstraete (3378) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - APR 2, 2013
Dark, small white head. A lot of carbonation Very one-dimensional beer. Sweet and bitter with a metallic taste. Holmen1 (5915) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 8, 2013
Flaske fra Belgisk Bryg, delt med Egil: vakre rødtoner og skikkelig højt dubbelskum. Aroma av sviskeplommer og rosiner. Smaken likeså. Fruktig og passe karbonert for sødmen, som er mer rikholdig enn bare søt. En deilig dubbel. BantamSpirit (18) - ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2013
Large 750cl bottle shared with the loving wife. Actually if she loved me more she would have let me drink the lot :-) She enjoyed it too much so I’ll have to get another couple of bottles and hide them. Great warming chocolate, toast, aroma. Rich and brooding, black, hazy, and very frothy. Sweet and acceptably so. mjs (7413) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 20, 2013
(Bottle, 0.33 l - BBE Sept 2014, at Leijuva Lahna, 20130220) The beer poured brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had malts, Belgian style yeast, liquorice and caramell. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, molasses, Belgian style yeast, liquorice and bitterness. Afteraste was sweet, yeasty and bitter. Too sweet and thin to be really good but still decent dubbel.
