Belgian beer festival Brussels 2006: This must’ve been one of the beers I had whilst completely off my rocker...so I give it the average as to not affect its score but keep a record. tennisjoel (1459) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - APR 15, 2007
Pour is amber . Some plum, along with a smoky, charcoal like character. Also molasses notes. This was an interesting beer for me. A little raw and the alcohol was not masked on this as well as some other dubbels sampled during a tasting. For me, it scored middle of the road. However, out of the four participants, it finished dead last out of the 9 dubbels tasted. BeerBiker (1415) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 13, 2007
Fantastic head in the bruin category, with the flavor and aroma of fruity bitterness, spices, yeast, banana aso. Maybe my favorite Maredsous, but M 6 is also good. cgarvieuk (24485) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 8, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2015 brown (rich ruby), rich chocolate flavour, but too fizzy with rich dark chocolate bitter (almost same flav as a good dark 80% choc) in its linger3.4

11.2 oz. Lot L2441 1601. Purchased at Table and Vine, W Springfield, MA. Very well carbonated. Thick root beer float head with sticky champagne bubbles. Coffee/ dark chocolate nose. Coffee malt bursts through at opening, then leaves you with dry, dark chocolate finish with a touch of hops. Can’t wait to taste at the source later this summer!

Poured from a 330m bottle into a Maredsous glass, deep amber with a medium tan head. Aroma was faint, with accents of dark fruit and red grapes. Taste was subtle with hints of dark fruit and malt. Slightly sour and dry. Not sweet. Well carbonated with no apparent alcohol bite.

.33 cl bottle. Served in a Delerium Tremens tulip. It’s a beer that you know is going to be good even before its opened, brewed by the makers of Duvel. Mahogany beer with a thick, creamy, off-white to tan head. Even generates its own head, and laces everywhere. Nice malty Belgian dubbel aroma. Flavor is characteristically dubbel, but with its own personality. Some plum and dark fruit. Almost chewy malty, and very dry, with a bitterness at the end. theHerman (4) - USA - MAR 30, 2007 does not count
A great belgian ale with three different tastes in each sip. Surprisingly easy to drink. BREWMUSKCLES (2686) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 29, 2007
raison vanilla fruitcake with a casked brandy and alcohol finish. roasted notes abound then fade away. interesting classy number. LinusStick (3460) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2007
Classic Belgian. Pour was a delicious dark brown with a thick off white head. Aroma was dark fruit and yeast. Taste was plum, malt and caramel followed by an alcohol burn with the yeastiness and carbonation teasing the senses. As it warms has a vinuous taste coming out.
