coempa (18) - Reeuwijk, - SEP 20, 2013
Bottle as gift @home Pours very dark brown with a medium creamy offwhite frothhead, nice lacing. Taste is very malty with some sweet tones of dark fruit. Maybe even a little cheese. Body is heavy, creamy texture. Medium carbonation. The finish is ver abrupt, a little bitter. Overall a very good beer, perfect for a dark, rainy night.

Cristobal37 (1094) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 28, 2017
Bottle from the abbey. Super dark, thick foamy head. Sugary, malty, toast and some spices. Toasty malts, some syruppy sugar, sweet overall. Slight bitterness but moslty doughy, malty and a little chocolate as well.

kapusil (1396) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 3, 2017
0.33l bottle that was part of a taster pack. Very dark brown body (an not even see through it) with an off white head. Aroma of dark sugar syrup, cocoa, toast and floral hops. Taste of cocoa, dark sugar, orange zest, floral hops and nutmeg. The cocoa powder character is surprising a bit from a dubbel. Nice beer though.

Marko (5553) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 29, 2017
Thanks Dino! Misty brown tinged with amber, big off white, creamy head. Big aroma, raisin, big esters, slightly vinuous, quite nice! Sweet malt driven taste, good fruitiness, toasty too, mild warming alcohol. Just a tiny touch of yeast to mar it. A tasty big dubbel.

Kolor ciemnobrązowy, nie do końca klarowne. Ciemne owoce, rodzynki, słodycz alkohol. Ocena na podstawie notatek pisanych przed założeniem konta na RB.

dcmchew (54) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - APR 12, 2017
Pours dark mahogany, huge beige foamy cap. Recedes slowly and leaves a lot of messy lacing. Spicy aroma, with some light fusels. Dark biscuits, tea, cocoa powder, walnut, dark sugars. Some dark fruit shows up in the taste, like raisins and dried figs covered in dark cocoa powder. Biscuit, brownie dough, splashed with some alcohol, hinting vaguely at fruit brandy. Abbey-style spiciness in the finish, but also some phenols. But it fits nicely. There’s a nice creamy sweetness, without being exactly sugary. Like melting Mexican sugar, but not exactly burning it. Aftertaste has even a faint bitter edge, managing to balance out the sweet bits. Alcohol sticks around, but it’s well rounded and smooth. As is the body. Some specific "Belgian yeast" (big esters and phenols) notes seem to overpower at times, but it makes it rather authentic in that way. A nice showcase of the style from a non-Trappist brewery. Quite good.

rumore (441) - Rimini, ITALY - FEB 26, 2017
From 33cl bottle, as Maset Tostada. Pours deep brown worth beautiful reflections. Aroma is licorice, caramel, quite an alcoholic feeling. Body is average. Taste is sweet, but with some additional bitterness in the finish.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2017 Heel behoorlijke dubbel. Zoetig maar ook warm. Iets van rozijnen. Lekker biertje.

dnicolaescu (2481) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JAN 28, 2017
BOTTLE 33 CL. Dark ruby-brown, sediment, beige head. Pretty harsh aroma of dark fruit, quite boozy and gluey. Similar taste - dark fruit, super glue and nail polish. A harsher kind of Belgian strongies. 3,4/5.

Ysok02 (1472) - Mons, BELGIUM - JAN 3, 2017
Robe brune, fine mousse peu persistante. Nez épicé et malté sur un fond houblonné et fruité. Bouche à l’attaque souple et fruitée, ronde et équilibrée. Une brune équilibrée assez simple.
