Real cheap bottle from craft beer outlet. Pours a dark color, with a medium mouthfeel. This is a bit sour, which really pleases me. This is good. tderoeck (10593) - Gent, BELGIUM - NOV 25, 2011

Clear red brown beer, nice butter yellow head, bit stable, non adhesive. Aroma: sweet caramel, sweet malts, dark candi sugar, touch of dried fruits. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: very fruity, plums, caramel, citrus touches, slight bit of mocha. Aftertaste: more citric hops, bit cheesy, caramel and dried fruits.
Strong aroma of hop and doughy yeast. Taste of coffee, chocolate and some herbs. Maybe some bread? A reasonably complex Belgian brown. topherh (1929) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Pours dark brown with an off white head. Aroma is caramel, candi sugar, and toffee. Flavor is sweet, caramel malt, and brown sugar. suprchunk (2994) - EffOff, Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Deep toffee brown, bordering on mahogany, colored pour. Dense tan head that is quick to exit and left a trace of lacing behind. Sharp acrid aroma of malt and metal. Caramel and malty flavor with some metallic notes. Dry and carbonic. Not very good.

11.2oz bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours deep brown with a lacy, light beige head. Aroma of spicy yeast, caramel and toffee malts, some light chocolate, and some light floral hops. Flavor about the same. Not very memorable. Average texture. A decent beer. GothGargoyle (2588) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 16, 2011
Ruby brown with a medium beige head. Aroma is brown sugar, dates, raisins, vanilla. Smooth mouthfeel, predominantly sweet on the palate, reasonably short finish. Taste is dates, brown sugar, plums and a touch of malt. wlajwl (7200) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 7, 2011
Strong caramel and nutty in aroma. The flavor is very sweet and slightly cloying. Not bad but the overly sweet flavor is a bit off-putting. cubs (10740) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Bottle @ Granny’s house in Exira, Iowa. Deep brown appearance with a light to medium brown head. Dark candy sugar, caramel, dark chocolate aroma. Creamy, dark fruity, plum, dark grape, caramel, dark candy sugar flavor. Smooth, easy drinking and not overly syrupy abbey dubbel. Gary (2094) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2011
(Bottled) This beer is more like a Dunkle than a Flanders/Flemish brown. NOTES of caramel , earthy hops, with lots of treacle like maltiness.
