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.

Not usually a fan of Dubbel beers, but this is splendid. Sweet but satisfying, with a malty, dried fruit flavour.

Karmel, banany, drożdże. Ciemny, brązowy kolor. Słodki smak. Daje radę choć piłem lepsze warki.

It was different as I remembered. I couldnt really feel the harmony. But all together it is still a master piece.

Tres belle robe brune. La mousse se dissipe vite, un peu trop gazeuse. Bien quilibrentendu et fruite, lgre amertume mais finale acide, dommage.

lokis333 (478) - Birai, LITHUANIA - MAY 19, 2017
Very deep dark red color with huge sand color foam. Aromas of ripe fruits, raisins, banana peel, caramel, biscuits and a light touch of wood. Palate, medium to full body with disappointingly light-ish texture leaving nice dry finish. Taste sweet of with notes of malt, burned sugar, dried fruits, and caramel. Overall, okay not bad but expected bit more from a Trappist beer, but still nice.

Bruin/rood kleurig bier met een crme kleurige schuimkraag. Aroma: moutig, bruine suiker en wat gist. Smaak: moutig, bruine suiker, iets van drop en wat gist. Veel koolzuur en romig mondgevoel.

Vinx (133) - ITALY - MAY 5, 2017
Clear dark amber color with a significant long lasting tan foam; aroma of clove, caramel, ripe fruit, red fruit above all, banana, black pepper; a good balance between sweetness and bitterness; medium body but thin feel; lively carbonation; bitter finish and a little astringent. This beer is the paradigm of a belgian dubbel: great yeast with all its esters and phenols, thin texture and not cloying at all. its hard to explain how its organoleptic profile is clean but "dirty", as all the belgian beers are, at the same time. Complex, pleasant, a peerless masterpiece.
