I was enjoying this so much that I almost forgot to rate it. First of all, be careful opening this bad boy or you might put your eye out. i still havent found the cork from when it shot out like a bullet. That being said...the first thing I noticed was the wonderfully complex, pleasing aroma with some caramel. After the long wait for the head to recede, I found that the flavor matched the aroma with its complexity. Absolutely great.

Special ale. Firm notes of raisin and chocolate are balanced by fruity/estery Belgian yeast character. Strong and substantial yet oddly drinkable as only the Belgians can accomplish. Belgian ale truly makes life worth living. My favorite abbey (non-Trappist) ale.

A very fine looking beer with a nice head and a deep brown ale color. The flavor has hints of yeast, sweet fruit and alcohol. For myself, a let down Belgian. A little too syrupy sweet.

3 liter bottle most recently. Dark brown pour. Huge fruity malty aroma. Lots of raisins and maple / molasses. Nice medium body and decent carbonation. Caramel fruity candied sweet malt flavors. A slight touch of chocolate if its not too cold. Very good beer.

Lovely dark color and wonderful flavor. I lovethis ale long-time! Brillant malt sweetness blends well with a nice cake-like body, followed by some bitter hops. This is the gate-way Belgian, but not a love it and leave it kind of beer. I could enjoy this one at any time of the year!

this one poured a big head. i thought it had a raisinish aroma i aked my brother for a second opinion and he said it just smelled like beer. HA! strong carbonation. great overall taste but i coulnt really pick anything out besices the yeastness. no black chocolate or raisin taste in my palate and I have no f-ing idea what port is.

Bottle from my brother, Alex. Everything youd expect from an Abbey Dubbel. Ruby brown with brown/white head. Malty aroma, caramel, raisin, yeast. Good mouthfeel, not overly sweet. Well crafted.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2005
Dense off-white head on a hazy brown body. It has a very smooth and rounded taste in spite of its 7,5 %. Very well made and complex: raisin, apricot, other fruits, a bit on the winey side. A very pleasant experience on the whole.

Pours a hazy brown that you cant even look through, there is a light brown head which is thin as well. This is loaded with a very strong sweet raisin aroma and then I also got some milk chocolate out of it. The taste is similar, but more fruity and like wine. It was nice and smooth, I enjoyed this one a lot.
