Benno of the Stift Engelszell Trappist brewery from Engelhartszell an der Donau. Benno Stumpf was Abbot from 1953 to 1966 at the Abbey. The color is an orange red copper color. It has a good stable foam head and the smell is malty and hoppy. Taste stands out for its bitterness and is light sweet and yeasty.

330ml bottle from Silpo (thx, Vlad!). BB 2017-07-17. Pours a slightly hazy pale amber with a beige head. Aroma is flowery, caramel. Similar taste. Moderate to high carbonation. Quite pleasant Belgian Dubbel. kapusil (1476) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 7, 2017
0.33l bottle thanks to Cristobal37. Clear orange body with an off white head and lots of floating sediment. Aroma of dark sugar, orange zest, toast and figs. Taste of dark sugar, orange zest, toast, doughy yeats and floral hops. A bit flat and thin, but very nice. Cristobal37 (1195) - Budapest, HUNGARY - SEP 7, 2017
Bottle. Orangey amber with loads of butt (sediment). Toasty roasted malt aroma. Yeasty with the slightest sourness, otherwise bread and malt. Watery and mostly plain. I could imagine monks getting down with this errday and for a classic Belgian ale it's cool, but a bit simple.

Bursztynowej barwy z bardzo nie trwałą pianą. Aromat słodki. Na pierwszym planie nuty karmelowe, miodowe. W smaku trochę bez charakteru. Niby słodkie, niby nie. Nie jest złe, ale rewelacyjne też nie jest. nephirem (598) - CROATIA - AUG 4, 2017
Bottle, 0.33l. Hazy deep copper pour, one finger soapy off-white head. Quickly diminishing, not much of a retention. Fresh nose, belgian yeast, good malt character paired up with hops in the background. Hints of citrus and coriander, really nice.
Medium body, medium carbonation. Smooth palate, thick and oily texture. Bittersweet taste with slight fruity tartness. Nicely balanced. Aroma is medium malt with pretty nice herbal touch to it. Grassy, peppery. Citrus fruit, coriander. Slight alcohol burn. Dry mouthfeel, bitter finish.
Overall, pretty good. Nicely balanced, fairly complex and quite tasty. Nice one. adamnowek (3170) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 17, 2017
Smells like honey and caramel. Taste is sweet like a dessert pastry with some notes of orange and caramel. teddybearontap (17) - - JUN 21, 2017
toast, nutty/honey caramel, dried prunes; has a modest farmhouse-esque balsamico quality without the horse aromas you usually get from wild yeast; mineralic, cardamommy, nutmeggy, earthy finish leaning veeeery slightly to band-aidy, almost medicinal herbiness that works surprisingly well!
