750mL bottle, pours dark orangey amber with a beige head. Aroma of caramel, spices and a dry character. Flavour of dried fruits, smooth caramel, with a dry palate. Solid. Oakes (17685) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2008
Opaque reddish-brown. Aroma of plum, orange, raisin, some sweet brown sugar and caramel malts. Fairly clean but yeasty. The carbonation is a bit zippy. Finishes with raisin notes, alcohol heat and a hint of peachiness.

Bottled 75 clchrisv10 (17460) - DENMARK - JUN 18, 2011
Hazy nut brown color, small brownish head. Caramel, yeast and fresh vegetables in the nose. Quite alcoholic, feels even higher than 7 %. Caramelly-toffeish, some hops, loads of yeast there. This beer has lost its soul on the way, but drinkable it is.
Bottle. Dark amber with medium off-white head. Flavour is malt, caramel, yeast, dried fruits, hops, plume and a little raisin. yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 21, 2012
Bottle, 75cl corked, at Patricks. It pours a big, dense, light beige head over a lightly dim copper colored body. Nice lacings left. The aroma has a solid dose of dried fruits, some caramel and chocolate and a touch of alcohol. Sort of sugary. It is full-bodied, sweet, warming and pleasantly bitter in the mouth. Dried fruits and some chocolate and caramel. A touch of yeast too. A really pleasant one, smooth and tasteful. 120121

Bottle thanks to a generous trader. Pours dark brown. Tan head. Nose and taste of mostly dark fruits - sweet raisin, date and figs with roasted malts and Belgian yeast. Body is a bit on the light side. Good carbonation. brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 11, 2010
A: Opaque, burgundy in color, with about one finger of white foam.
S: Tons of dark fruit: figs, plums, and raisins. A slight yeasty quality is present as well.
T: Very similar to the nose. A pleasant sweetness which is complimented nicely by a bit of tartness. There is also a very nice (subtle) spice character to this beer.
M: Has the typical abbey ale mouthfeel. Nice carbonation and body.
D: Delicious beer, highly drinkable. Dedollewaitor (16171) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2008

750ml bottle (ALEhouse, Riga, MelnaZiema2013)MiP (15667) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 1, 2017
Abbey dubbel - WTF? This is a crappy yeasty home-brewed sweet dark lager. Diacetyl slime. Drain poured it. Couldn’t be arsed to write a better rating if they can’t be bothered to brew a better beer. Even worse than usual Lost Abbey attempts at beer.
Bottle, 8.0%. Mild fruity aroma. Hazy brown colour. Small stable off-white head. The flavour is quite malty, slightly fruity with some caramel and seemingly a little liquorice in the finish. As it warms, more fruity notes come out, dried fruit, coconut, but not overly sweet. Well-balanced.
