330ml bottle into a tulip. Pours a clear very dark brown, nearly opaque. Topped by a huge billowy off-white head that keeps growing thanks to the abundant carbonation. Some of the best head retention I have every seen. Aroma has lots of dark fruit such as figs and cherries layered on top of wood. Hints of pipe tobacco along with wet grass and hay. A little bit of light cocoa underneath. The flavor really has tons going on. Like in the aroma, dark fruit predominantly up front consisting largely of cherries and figs. A decent woody note is present along with a little bit of must although it nicely compliments the other flavors. Grass comes in next along with a moderate, cleansing bitterness. The beer finishes dry on the palate with bitterness lingering long after all other flavors depart. Overall, a truly complex and amazing beer. There is really so much going on here and the flavors change as the beer warms. One of the classics.

Aromă cu mult suc acrișor de fructe de pădure negre, fructe fermentate, note de condimente și drojdii belgiene. Gust ușor și plăcut dulce, foarte plăcut, puțin condimentat și pișcător, cu fructe fermentate, puțin suc acrișor de fructe de pădure negre, ceva drojdii belgiene spre final. Foarte bine făcută și balansată.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2017 Dark, strong and remeniscent of a moderate lottery win on the tongue. The feeling of delight as the velvety richness cascades down your throat is only to be matched by the lingering chocolate and coffee notes (Madagascan) as the after taste fades slowly to a delightful memory. Until the next sip. And unlike a lottery win, this fine beverage is eminently more predictable! Stonking!

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2017 Possibly, no probably, the finest Belgian beer I have ever tasted. Beautiful dark colour, deep taste and pleasant aftertaste. A sensible 7% alcohol in terms of strength. Served in its own magnificent Westmalle goblet. A small piece of alcoholic heaven on earth. I am sincerely indebted the brewers of this masterpiece.. They have made the world a better place. I salute them

Starke lang anhaltende Schaumbildung, obwohl es ein dunkles Bier ist relativ schwach ausgeprägte Röstaromem. Geschmack nach Getrockneten Früchten, etwas Honig und etwas Brot. Schönes dunkles Rotbraun. Typisches gutes Belgisches Dubbel.

Aromat ciemnych owoców, lekko ziemisty i ciasteczkowy, ale nie diacetylowy. Smak lekko słodki, drożdżowy. Alkohol średnio ukryty. Mocno wysycone piwo.

LouisP (574) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2017
Une bière brune, avec des reflets rubis, une tres grosse carbonatation ainsi qu'une bonne effervescence. Au nez, jus de raisin, baies des champs, bref, c'est bien fruitée avec les esthers des levures belges bien présentes. En bouche, le jus de raisin bien sucré est à l'honneur avec un corps assez rond également. La bière presente une petite amertume auquelle je ne m'attendais pas. Pas un classique pour rien.
