Mörkt bärnstensfärgad, disig med medelstort skum. I doften finns massor av torkad frukt, främst russin och mörka plommon,men även lite kryddor. Smaken är stor och fyllig med sötma från torkade frukter, mycket russin i eftersmaken, även lite toffesötma, en fin kryddighet som balanserar sötman och en liten beska på slutet. Munkänslan är stor, mjuk och rund. En riktigt smakrik och välbalanserad dubbel partchapol (128) - Ohio, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Smell of hop, malt, toast caramel, anise, cinnamon. Come in dark amber with thin brown crown. Full body taste with hop, malt, and sour caramel. Strong alcohol, somewhat bitter. Smooth but not as balanced due to hindered sourness. Good overall. billtheman (86) - milford, Delaware, USA - SEP 28, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2016 I went to Cooperstown NY this week, enjoyed the Hall of Fame and enjoyed this super tasting beer. Really great taste. Nice dark appearance, with a pleasant aroma, Really great taste with a very good aftertaste. Maybe the best Ommegang brews.

Grand beer! Faint nose of black plums. Mouth is full body coffee and chocolate with dried fruits, plums, apricots, sultanas, a light touch of licorice. Very well balanced with enough acidity to be fresh and not too sweet. Really good! BeerRenter76 (1014) - Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2016
Aromas of fig, black licorice, raisins and a little spice. Apperance was a deep murky brown, with very small floaters, medium carbonation, and the head was thin and tan. Flavors were similar to the aroma with the licorice being at the forefront, and the caramel and dark fruits lurking in the background. Overall not my favorite from ommegang but still a very solid brew.Originally rated on 10/8/2008.

Bottle from Red Star. Deep mahogany pour. Fruitful aroma with booze, malt, toffee, honey and earth. Flavor is malt, chocolate, licorice and dark fruits and berries. MattChiasson (71) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2016
Out of the bottle, poured light brown, cloudy, with a big rocky persistent tan head. Absolutely beautful in the glass. Malt forward notes of brown raisin bread, molasses, along with fig, cinnamon, and chocolate covered cherries. Rich and complex. Sublime. Loved it.

For the book. Aroma is caramel, earthy hops, wood, it barely smells like anything. Appearance is brown, light tan head, not clear. Taste is caramel, wood, earthy hops, dirt, dry, some fruit, yep, it’s a dubbel. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, woody fruity aftertaste. Overall, this may be the best dubbel I’ve had Ktwse (4875) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2016
Pours clear deep mahogany with low light tan head. Aroma of hazelnut, toffee, roasted malt, figs and dates. Taste is sweet and complex, mild bitter finish. Light to medium bodied, smooth, with average carbonation.
