3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Kinda boozy on the nose, with notes of cherry and a bit of sweetness. Taste is slightly caramel malt dominated, pretty good but not my style.
Caramel, tea, even a hint of chocolate, pumpkin maybe, beautifully balanced like you’d come to expect from St. B, not a blowout like like #12 but nice enough Mister_Li (1416) - GERMANY - AUG 20, 2017
Trübes, dunkles Bernstein mit reichlich cremigen Schaum. Malzig, Karamell, Röstaromen, etwas Kakao, fruchtig, Waldbeeren, leicht trocken. geolgau (298) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - AUG 12, 2017
Aroma is a bit shy, but as it heats, it grows: fruity and roasty with roasted malts, milk chocolate, roasted walnuts, dry earthiness, pu-erh tea. Taste is balanced, not too sweet, not too alcoholic. Sweet malts, spices, dark fruits,nice alcohol burn, dark medicinal teas, caramel. Very nice dubbel. wilde_joost59 (174) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2017
Shared a bottle at home with Rabo. Nice brown color. Taste was very smooth, good. The aftertaste was a bit disappointing. KevinReddirt (182) - Midland, Texas, USA - JUL 28, 2017
I obtained this bottle at a well stocked Total Wine in Dallas and held it for four months until the right time. Which is now. A great introduction, it pours a rich amber-brown body into my favorite Chimay Trappist glass yielding a spun cotton candy scented head of off-white foam. The taste, really, really fine. It delivers yellow plum, malt, toffee and a delicate spiciness. It continues with a slight bitterness, a nice full mouthfeel. The 8% abv is completely in the background. If not the best dubbel to me it is close. I get its appeal.

Very good. This did not have as much of the yeasty funk that I usually associate with Belgian beers. Fairly rich and complex with a full malty balance. I enjoyed this. GhostS (399) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUL 26, 2017

Bună. Westy1130 (97) - New York, USA - JUL 25, 2017
From memory (2010). Pours a dark burnt caramel brown/ruby red. Aroma: dark fruits, molasses and roasted chestnuts. Taste: Plums, dates, raisins, Belgian yeast, oak and vanilla aftertaste. Very similar to Abt 12. Beamer (80) - Malden, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2017
Mooi donker bier, niet bitter, licht zoet, lijkt wel wat op de 12.
