IlBevitorediLA (452) - - OCT 8, 2012
Partiamo col dire che una branda di birra. Se la vedete, dovete comprarla. Trovarla al supermercato mi stupi non poco e rimasi in trance per circa un quarto dora a fissarla finch non la comprai, tornando tutto baldanzoso e contento a casa. Aprendo la bottiglia fuoriesce un aroma potentissimo in grado di far riscrescere i capelli a un calvo o di far passare un raffreddore a un influenzato. Al naso comunque si presentano noti alcoliche, di lieviti con effluvi tannici e con una nota finale di frutti di bosco (soprattutto more e lamponi). Presenta un colore mogano con riflessi rubino.Lingresso in bocca meraviglioso complessissimo e carbonato. Il gusto fruttato: di nuovo frutti di bosco e prugne con un leggero sentore di brandy. Vira verso una note speziate nel finale con una leggera luppolatura che pulisce il tutto. Complessissima e indescrivibile: fate prima ad assaggiarla voi stessi. Grazie monaci trappisti, siete bellissimi.

Luneylane (145) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - MAY 20, 2017
A bottle from Beers of Belgium drunk at Dads place while home on leave. Aroma: plums, wine. Appearance: hazy dark brown, minimal head. Palate: full-bodied and creamy, average carbonation. Long, predominantly sweet finish. Taste: heavily sweet, but pleasantly so. Delicious boozy flavour, almonds in there somewhere. Complex and excellent.

oobawa (1193) - Tennessee, USA - APR 21, 2017
Yummy Dubbel, classic and refined yet surprisingly accessible, sweet and chock full of dark fruit goodness but firm and spicy on the back end. Notes of dried cherry and caramel mingle with dates and clove, leading to a modestly hoppy finish laced with yeast and a slight hit of warmth. Somewhat simple, yet theres a purity in its simplicity, as good and true an example of a Dubbel as you could want. Nose gives up sweet toffee and a little raisin, and the pour is beautiful, dark red-brown with ample head and lacing. Feel is traditional Belgian fiestiness. Solid Trappiste ale.

Bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a foamy taupe colored head. Mouthfeel finishes also dry but has some medium weight to it. Notes of dark caramel, figs, cola, and nuts. Delicious and understated in a way.

vinivini (2052) - Gomel, BELARUS - APR 13, 2017
Muddy brown, moderate ivory head. Well-lacing. The aroma is very estery, nutty, lots of dried fruit, lollipop. Very noble. Medium to full body. The flavour is powerful, relatively dry. Very nutty. Solid esters. Caramel. Light bitterness. A little bit astringent. This is an incredible brew.
