Deep burgundy color with a big, fluffy head. Complex fruit aromas with a layered sweetness (honey, then caramel, then toffee) with a hint of licorice and chocolate. A big, rich, abbey-style ale that dries out nicely on the finish.

I will spare the description and will get to the point! This Abbey punches you in the face right after it gives you a hug that says, ’"Here, I got you this puppy?" It’s like listening to Al Green then Metallica then Kenny G at the end.....nighty night as you start sucking your thumb like a baby!!! WARNING! This brew may make you give away your significant other and make you think you hit the LOTTO! Please drink responsibly and give your friend one!!

Bottle from rakuten served in a tulip. A lovely ruby brown with a long lasting beige head. The aroma is massively fragrant giving off a mouthwatering spicy raisin bread odor. Full bodied with a round carbonation combined with a sharp finish. The taste is sweet fruity raisins, plums, molasses and some booziness. Good but KBC’s was easier to drink, more sessionable I’d say.

Bottle from Total Wine, South Richmond. Pours murky brown with a small off-white to beige head. Nice dark fruit aroma, including plum, bitter cherry, perhaps raisins, caramel. Flavor is raisin, chocolate, figs, dates, plums, red cherry, caramel, a little yeast, a little glue. Lots going on here. Good!

Brown color. Fruity aroma, nice caramel malt tones. Tastes is sweet with some fruity yeast tones, but balanced by a perfect spicy finish. Notes of licorice, caramel, dried fruits, fennel, a bit of clove are evident. Finishes nice and spicy...bit of roast. An incredible dubbel.

Clear, dark amber color with tan head. Aroma has sugar and dried fruits, mostly raisins. Taste follows with dried fruits and candi sugar but there is also a metallic note, not really pleasant. Medium body, medium plus carbonation. The metallic note fades after some time but it’s still a mediocre beer for my taste.
