while not my favorite style, this one packed a punch. Tasted at arborfest MN 2007. heavy boozy afterburn which was kinda nice. Also, very fruity and spicy tons of flavor for a dubbel. fruity and sweet up front through the middle area, and long and boozy on the backside.

This was a luscious tasty brew with more flavor than most doubles.Lots of fruits and exotic spices along with some toffee. JK (6332) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Fitger’s came through with this beer. Rotting fruit aromas and flavors. Very dark brown, with a thick and heavy body. Not as malty as the real thing. I had no idea the abv was so high when I was drinking it. CaptainCougar (7634) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 11, 2005
On tap at the 2005 Great Taste of the Midwest: Pours a deep amber brown with a thin, wispy light tan head. Very nice, complex, and authentic Belgian malty and yeasty aroma. Body starts sweet, caramely and dark sugary with good yeasty balance. A very authentic and complex Chimay clone beer.

Dark Brown Coloring with White Ring. Barley, Caramel, Prunes - Sweet Aroma. Initially Sweet, Raisin, Bread Dough Notes...Heavy Dry Hop Cascade. Almost a Dark Coffee Roast Lingering on the Tongue at the End. Alcohol is There but Only Promises to Hit You Hard When you’re Not Looking. auerbrau (3206) - Ithaca, New York, USA - AUG 4, 2005
Rich ruby raisin pour, murky, with a thin line of light tan head. Light rum raisin aroma. Flavor is fairly one-dimenionsal, with strong bouts of firey alcohol, rum, raisins and a touch of mellow wheat. Sugars on the back end, with a hint of caramel. Palate is oily and coating. Average for the style.
