Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber orange with some head and a little lacing that is moderately lasting. Aroma is caramel, dark fruits, spices and alcohol. Overall quite complex. Flavour is moderately bitter with a long finish and a decent sweetness. Medium body with quite a large dose of carbonation.

Not very spicy, but a bit sweet, and bitter. It’s a perfect belgian brown beer. The head is big at the beggening, but appears fast. The color cloudy brown.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ar: Plums and raisins; hints of orange spice and black pepper; deep toast and cake. Ap: Slightly hazy deep amber; large off-white head with phenomenal retention, leaving a picturesque Belgian lace on the glass sides and a thick cap of frothy foam. T: Cake, cotton candy, and peach up front, with a low sweetness; medium-high bitterness, fairly clean, herbal and spicy; raisin and peach, with some tartness; tart peaches on the finish. P: Medium-light body with very high carbonation; big mouthfeel of carbonation, somewhat rounded; finish is dry. O: An abbey dubbel with all the classic flavors--plum, peach, toasted malt; bitterness is quite firm and noticeable, but stops short of any harshness; overall, a solid beer.

Bottle. Aroma caramel, cereal, toast, citrus, dough, banana, Pours dark amber with tan lace top. Taste is sweet with caramel malt predominating Body is medium as is carbonation. What surprised me was the relatively brief finish. It’s not as heavy as the bottle it came in. A good rather than a great example of why Belgian beer is so special and different from the English version.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clean aroma with fresh citrus in the beginning and a subtle caramel-malty end, also hints of yeast. The color is dark brown (cloudy) with resemblance to melted sugar, and the ale has a big frothing creamy top. The aroma is clear, but without a relatively short finish.
The taste is prominently sweet (medium) and malty through the beginning with a clear bitter (medium), but with a crisp freshness to it throughout.
Not the heaviest of ales, but certainly not light either as it feels nice and fatty in the mouth. A lively ale which might help the freshness come through.
The only negative thing I could find with this beer was the color being a little cloudy, which I personally isn’t a big fan of. Despite being a fairly heavy ale it was almost as drinkable as a light lager, which was surprising considering its sweetness. The tastes were clear and pleasant, but with more complexity to it if you are in mood for some searching. No wonder people join monasteries!

Aroma: Dark berries and toasted cereals.
Appearance: Very dark brown color with hazy sparkilin liquid and white head.
Taste: Medium sweetness with light sour notes.
Palate: Medium body with creamy texture and lively carbonation. sweet astringent finish with alcoholic touch.
Overall: Not my kind of beer but it is understandable why it has the stamp of "one of the best". The sweetness and even the alcoholic touch don´t make it too hard to drink.
