Good average belgian dubbel. Nothing to write home to mom about but worth giving it a shot.

Bottle @ home. Dark red/cola color with a nice tan soft head. Vinous aroma. Sweet malt flavor with a hint of dry hopiness. Light body. Very enjoyable, to be consumed cold but not chilled.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 4, 2009
This dark brown colored ale pours with a very large light tan foam that lasts well in the glass. Unfortunately, this Belgian ale is not bottle conditioned. Very light notes of hop and dark fruit are present in the nose. Flavors are very muddled and muted, not helped by the watery texture due to the lack of natural carbonation. Not an awful beer.

DrDavid (957) - Johnson, Vermont, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Bottle. Fruity malt aroma. Deep reddish body, off-white head. Flavor is mild, moderately sweet fruit, with some caramel maltiness. Straightforward, but not particularly complex or compelling.

Dark reddish color, huge head. Smell is pretty subtle, of sweet malts. Taste, sweet, and little metallic for the frist 3 sips..but went away, as it warms it definitely gets better. Not too bad, has that favor in the finish that is in pranqster, and i dont know what it is, but its nice...i could drink 2, probably not more though., and dont really think i would want to....

Jsawyer (297) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2009
Bottle. Initially poured a thick off-white foamy head but which subsided quickly into an island of subtle foam atop a clear ruby body, laced well. Aroma is nutty, fruit punch, vinous, birchbeer, strawberry-citric. Flavor is caramel, toffee, dark dried fruits, licorice, woody and phenolic. Perhaps also slightly chocolate in the finish. Palate is medium bodied with a carbonated bite right before the sweet fruity malty finish that lingers on the tongue. Overall very much like a vinous soda; interesting and quenching.

bottle, nice dark reddish color with a small white head (which i prefer). A very sweet fruity flavour, better than most doubles i know.

Draft at Brickskeller. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a medium white head. Aroma is nuts, malty, notes of dried fruits. Flavor is sweet, heavy with dried fruits, caramel, toffee. It is okay, but certainly for me it was a difficult beverage to finish due to the sweetness of the beer. Initially I believed that the alcohol content was much higher than it actually is.

Brewed in Belgium..... Pours a reddish brown color with a small white head. Aroma of toffee and nuts. Taste is sweet and funky, with some bandy notes. I was not very excited about this abbey dubbel.
