thirstyrabbit (1790) - Tallinn, - JAN 26, 2013
Small bottle. Mahogany brown body with a medium beige head. Aroma has roasted nuts, malt, caramel and yeast. Taste has light roasted malt, prunes, nuts. Has all the distinctive AD parts in it but its not too sweet or pruney like the richer Abbey Dubbels are. Alcohol is well covered but the carbonation is quite stingy so it probably numbed my palate beforehand.

Uma boa cerveja, mas leve que as convencionais Dark Strong Ale, confesso que me pareceu mais com uma Dubbel, mas o sabor intenso de tmara faz prevalecer o estilo mais complexo das cervejas belgas de alta fermentao. Boa cerveja para quem est iniciando o mundo das cervejas especiais j num nvel mais avanado....

llucmaduell (208) - barcelona, SPAIN - DEC 30, 2016
I take this beer keg format. Although I prefer the format bottle. A good beer, but without the quality of the great Belgian beers of this style

Nurmis (521) - Oulu, FINLAND - SEP 26, 2016
75cl bottle. Pours brown with big tanned persistent head. Plum and other dark fruits, yeast. Really soft mouthfeel, cannot taste alcohol. More sweet than bitter. Really good.

Gehbe (322) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - SEP 26, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2016 Pours a clear ruby brown with a huge light tan head and nice lacing. Aroma of candy, caramel, molasses sugar, spice, citrus. Tastes medium sweet with medium/light carbonation sourness and a drop of crispy bitterness on finish. High carbonation, medium body, very thin for the amount of ABV, assertive alcoholic finish, a little sticky. Not bad but rather one-dimensional, and Im not fond of the palate.

jampura (165) - FINLAND - SEP 17, 2016
Makea, kaunis olut. Maltaisuus, hiiva ja melkein toffeemainen karamelli. Hyv, tumma bock.

mice (886) - FINLAND - AUG 7, 2016
Kirkas, keskiruskea olut vaahtoaa alussa kohtalaisesti, mutta vaahto katoaa aika nopeasti kokonaan. Maltaisen makea, sokerinen ja pehme, hieman luumuinen tuoksu. Maku samoin maltaisen ja pehmen makea sek aavistuksen luumuinen. Ihan nautittava olut ja belgialainen ei pet, mutta eihn tss kieltmtt mitn erityist ole. J kauas parhaista belgiveljistn.

MelvinKalksma (1297) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2016

Medium aroma of malts, caramel, Belgian yeast and fruit.

Turbid/opaque ree/brown beer with a slight/medium beige head.

Medium sweet with malts, caramel, Belgian yeast and fruit.

This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Nothing really to write about to be fair, just an average dark Belgian Strong Ale.
