Poured a cloudy brownish red color from a 12 oz bottle. A huge foamy head that stuck around for quite a while and left lots of lacing. Light carbonation. Aroma was yeasty and something else I cant figure out, maybe the coriander or star anise.Taste was lightly sweet with a dry finish.

A sweet dark fruity aroma. An also deep ruby body with bold off-white head. The heavy fruitiness fallows threw in that taste.Hints of cherry and sweet raspberry. Dry bold finish. Delicious and enjoyable. Amazing!

In growler from draft, poured into chilled glass. Intense malt flavor with complex spices - clove, banana, butterscotch. Plenty of hops to provide balance. Nice example of the Belgian Abbey ale style. Will go well with the pork & sauerkraut dinner that I have planned for tonight. Perfect beer during cold winter months.

geolgau (544) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - NOV 21, 2017
Complex, fruity and malty aroma. Jam, caramel, dried fruits, toffee. Taste is the same as the aroma, just a touch of licorice and a very nice fruitiness. Great aftertaste, sweet and malty. It's a very nice dubbel.

gripweed57 (2966) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - NOV 12, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Hazy burgundy red color. Large rocky tan head. Rich earthy caramel malt nose. Flavor has notes of fig, dark cherries and toasted raisin bread. Soft and luxurious on the palate. Quite delicious with warming alcohol and dark fruit notes in finish. Quite simply one of the best Abbey Dubbel styled ales I have tasted. Wonderfully nuanced and richly complex.

MrTipple (6952) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2017
Sweet, dark malts, caramel, molasses, Belgian yeast. Hazy, dark brown, medium, creamy, beige head. Medium sweet. More sweet grain and bread malts, sweet, candied, dried, dark fruits, prunes, figs, soft carbonation, full bodied. Beautiful Dubbel. Bottle at GABF17, Denver.

Bill Becker (2003) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 16, 2017
From Oct 2005 Poured into the glass a very nice dark amber with a good sized head that didn't stick around very long. What was left was a fine lacing around the glass. The smell is quite inviting with fruity tones mixed with a sweet malty aroma and a bit of alcohol. The taste was less complex than I thought it would be with a good dose of plum notes and some malt but not much else. Still, all in all, I liked it and would drink it again.

Zlotta (4139) - Hagen, GERMANY - SEP 27, 2017
0.355 l bottle from 'Beergium', 2016 vintage. Clear, very dark red with a medium large, frothy, almost stable, beige head. Sweetish-malty, moderately yeasty-spicy and sligthly fruity aroma of caramel, plums, raisins, licorice root and coriander. Quite sweet, malty, rather yeasty-spicy and a bit fruity taste of caramel, coriander, licorice root, some chocolate and a touch of dark fruit, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, quite yeasty, rather spicy and minimally roasty finish. Medium to full body, slightly creamy and rather effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Spice-forward, saturating Dubbel for the colder days.

Cloudy, reddish brown pour. Sour, plum aroma. Lively and sparkling palate. Likely my least favorite of Ommegang's great lineup.
