11.2 Bottle in trade from daknole, thanks. Served in trappist glass- poured transparent around the rim darken amber/brown in color, light carbonation of tiny bubbles, white patches on top of the liquid for a head, some lacing on the sides. Aroma of yeast, dark fruit, and wheat bread. Hits the mouth with a medium body, malt is distinguishable, fruit notes come through cleanly and nicely, finish has sour and spice quality to it. I found this one very drinkable and enjoyable. Funknmilla (745) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Bottle...thanks to Daknole...Pours brown with some bloody cherry red highlights--beige head...smells spiced, a little fruity and some muddled chocolate...fresh yeast as well....Initial sip, sweet candy malts, then very distinct raisin---overall sweet, but it has a spicy characteristic to it...light malts and yeast tie it all together---finish has a Flemish sour ale appeal Oakroot (2) - , North Carolina, USA - AUG 8, 2008 does not count
Bottle. Dark amber with a moderate head. Drier than I expected based on the initial chocolate and spice aroma. The yeast comes through clearly, along with sour, black cherry and malt finish. Clean and straightforward. Very drinkable. NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 4, 2008
Now this...is beer. Pours a beautiful deep copper color with a generous off white head. Lots of roasted malts with hints of chocolate on the nose. Wonderful, roasted chocolate with a bit of a fruity character to it in the aftertaste. This was a great great beer, highly reccomended. iammarc (385) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - JUL 31, 2008
Magic!! 330ml bottle. A great whiff of berries and red fruits a thin head and a good dark body. Delicious taste of cherries and a hint of plum. Slight hints of chocolate but cherries definitely take charge. Top drawer.

Bottled. Poured deep plummy garnet with a shorter-lived cap of beige head. The aroma picked up sweeter dark fruits at the fore (prunes and raisins led the way) with drawn caramel supporting.. spicy yeast also gave a fine impression. The flavor was led by the same dark fruits as the nose, adding semi-sweet chocolate.. rummy finish with peppery yeast and more dark fruit.. tasty. Medium-bodied with medium-high carbonation.. just a hair too sweet on the palate.. dry as hoped for on the back-end.. tasty stuff. Jwasciuk (198) - Lowell, Michigan, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Pours clear dark brown with a large creamy off-white head. Aroma is moderatly malty of dark bread, roasted malts and carmel lightly hoppy and heavily yeasty of leather, earth, prunes, dates and grapes. Flavor has a great balance heavy carmel and burnt fruit notes, finish has some spicy notes and balanced twords the sweet side and dark fruit. medium bodied, creamy and very carbonated. nice lithilorn (284) - Covilhã, PORTUGAL - JUL 27, 2008
Dark ambar body, tan head. aroma of dark sugar, dark fruits and a little caramel. Sweet flavor. A good abbey dubbel. Fruitfly (59) - , Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Draught. Aroma is sweet and fruity, of plums, grapes/raisin light malt, and caramel. Observed under dim lighting seemed a deep plumb/red color. Almost no head. Very smooth and light despite the carmel/malty flavour and medium texture. Predominately sweet and would be a nice desert in itself. phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 21, 2008
This beer pours a deep copper colour- deep yet somewhat clear. Head is medium sized, beige colour. Aroma is very pleasent, and fruity- taste is rich in fruit as well- plums, ripe black cherry and macintosh apples. excellent flavor, very smooth.
