Poor head, dark amber body, lots of carbonation. Very fruity, less yeasty than other abbey Dubbel I had, very well balanced, not too complex. Tastes of anis and dark fruits. fonefan (51109) - VestJylland, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2006

Bottle. Nice big tan head with good duration. Color is brown. Aroma is sweet and fruity with notes of plum and raisin. Taste sweet and fruity as well with some bitterness in the end. french tickler (648) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 25, 2006
Sweet alcohol aroma... Plums, black cherries, nutmeg, vanilla, bananas and dried grapes, basically a christmas fruit cake! Rich frothy head... very sweet beer, gets better and better with room temperature... light bitterness at the end... the aroma of this beer way surpasses its taste...

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2009 Bottle from SAQ du Plateau. Pours a dark brown colour with a thick and long lasting beige head. Aroma is spicy, fruity, with notes of malts, caramel and yeast. Taste is similar, with notes of plum with a medium body.

Bottled. Pitch black (extremely dark brown) opaque with small bubbly beige head. Chocolate, caramel and a bit roasted malts in the aroma. Flavour is plum, licorace. caramel and sugar. Some minor roasted notes also there. A bit biting carbonation. Wellbalanced and good brew. bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2006
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a large brownish head. Malty and sweet with notes of caramel and anis and dark fruit. TBone (18226) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 16, 2006
Bottled [BB 09/2007].
Very dark brown color, not much head. Caramelly and fruity aroma (toffee, prunes). Very carbonated. Dried fruits dominate, but flavor is thin. Easy to drink, a bit sweet, not very complex. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 30, 2006
UPDATED: APR 18, 2008 In short: A light plumy Abbey Dubbel. Good foundation but body too light for the styleMarkoR (959) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2006
How: Bottle 330ml, many times, usually fresh. Consistent taste across different batches/years
The look: Cloudy light mahogany with a large rocky beige head.
In long: Aroma of roasted malt and some molasses. Taste is malty, plums, molasses/liquorice. Light-medium body. Medium body with light bitterness. A cross between a Belgian Ale and a Bock? It’s a good beer but it tastes a bit like a light Floreffe Prima Melior (somewhat similar but a lot tamer). And with the Prima Melior in the same family this one becomes as forgettable as Jermaine Jackson from Jackson family.
Very enjoyable beer. Pours dark brown colour with a generous head. Some spices. Had it at the Bier Market, in Toronto.
