Reddy brown beer with large tan head. Caramel odour. Caramel, coffe, honey, cloves and toffee. Wonderful for the style. kpresley77 (147) - Jackson, Georgia, USA - NOV 21, 2008
Bottle pours opaque brown/red with very little white head. Aroma is nutty and some dark fruits. First taste is somewhat sweet with dark fruits being the main flavor then there is a nutty flavor present as well. The finish is clean with slight linger of sweetness and nuts. The alcohol is hidden very well. daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 20, 2008

Sample @ BBF 08, Boston. Pours a hazy red with a small head. Aroma is dark fruit, malt, and candi sugar. Taste is the same, with noticeable plum and raisin going with the malt. Very smooth, and a nice offering on the whole. Glad I could try it.

Pours a murky ruby colour with a small head and almost no carbonation.
Smells fruity and sweet with also some hops and malts.
Taste is very warm and can taste raisins and some fruits in there vaguely.
Goes down very nice and warm with a good aftertaste and a warm feeling in the throat. Good Abbey dubbel. jhagmar (114) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2008
