My favourite beer. Nice soft, sweet brown beer with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Perfect with traditional food, or on a rainy autumn afternoon. Arlofelt (3) - DENMARK - JUN 25, 2015 does not count
Super dejlig øl, der er god til pizza, kylling og lette retter. Bør nydes kold. Ikke speciel kraftig, og derfor drikkes af de fleste. God smag. SteveGanio99 (2) - alpharetta, Georgia, USA - SEP 17, 2001 does not count
If you see the Trappist Brothers from the Abbey of Koningshoeven, send them my regards. This Dubbel rocks! Vinx (133) - ITALY - JUN 1, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2016 The aroma is something unique: yellow fruit, red fruit, banana, caramel, biscuit, nuts, bubblegum, some alcohol. The phenols are subdued: just some pepper and very very hidden hints of clove. I don’t know... it reminds me Christmas time when I was a child. Very clean ruby color with a tasty tan head. Sweet but not cloying, medium bodied. I payed less than 3 euros for it in a supermarket and it’s giving me such a bunch of emotions. It represents the roots we all have to start again from. huineman (688) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 12, 2015
Dark cloudy brown, with a thick beige head that lingers long time.
Intense aromas of chocolate, vine leaf, red berries, bread, coffee and honey.
Medium sweet, powerful and full-bodied. Creamy, with hints of salty and savoury flavors as it delves down the mouth. Long finish with memories of coffee and milk. Great.

I dont know what to say...I dont think I am supposed to rate this beer this high, but after drinking it, I could not help but make it my number one beer. It had a pleasant spice aroma with lace that clung to the glass as I drank each sip. The sweet fruits hung around my toungue and made me crave another sip. I found nothing wrong with this beer, I want another! cyrenaica (1126) - Milton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2008

I tried this beer on May 9, 2008 at "Smokeless Joe’s" in Toronto, Ontario on tap. The beer was a beautiful dark brown with some plum coloured hints and a thin, rocky, tan coloured head. The aroma was sweet malt, with some yeasty tones, as well as chocolate and cherry hints. The mouthfeel was medium bodied, mildly carbonated, and slightly creamy. The flavour was caramel malt, some other fruit flavours like cherries and plum, and a little hoppish bitterness to round it out. I loved this beer.
Very active aroma with a charcoal traces. Good lasting head and a really nice color. The taste is present for quite a while and is bitter, sour and a little salty. Has a oily texture and a lively carbonation. You can feel a metallic taste in your mouth. freek (3) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2009 does not count
Unique tasting Trappist, the only of it’s kind of Dutch origin. The smoothest and sweetest of all Trappists, yet still packing enough character and dubbel ’oomph’. My favourite, most of the time... Change with a regular pils or a Westmalle Dubbel in between to keep your palate appreciating it’s sweet strength ;) tomaz (89) - , GERMANY - MAR 15, 2011
Cette trappiste est bel et bien bâtie. Elle est d abord d un beau rouge-brun foncé à la mousse fine comme on s y attend. Au goût les notes sucrées de fruits type cerises noires et cassis se mélangent à des notes plus automnales de figues, pruneaux et boisées. L alcool tient en longueur ces belles notes sans en déborder ni exagérer, bel équilibre. En fait je préfère presque la double à la quadruple.
Je mettrai juste un bémol pour l originalité qui suit très (trop) bien la recette trappiste.
