Oakes (19370) - 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 cljtclockwork (17631) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 11, 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 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.

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, 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 @ Van Moll Tasting shared by Abijen. Very hazy reddish color, average sized beige head. Smell malts, brown sugar, leaves, raisins. Taste malts, dark malts, brown sugar, leaves, lightly sweetish. Decent body and carbonation. Hmm average. brokensail (16689) - 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.
