Bottle. Deep amber/brown body with a big, frothy beige head, mostly lasting. Musty aroma with notes of raisins, toffee, chocolate. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Good, but not as bold in the flavor as its 8.8% alcohol and aroma would lead you to believe. BelgBeerGeek (1307) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - APR 3, 2012

Thick, luxurious head. Thick, sweet smell. Tastes peppery, malty and sweet. A lovely beer that I will continue to buy whenever I see it and am running low. laiti (8531) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2012
33 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu. Rated on 13.04.2011erickok (6036) - Leuven, BELGIUM - FEB 25, 2012
Aroma is spicy with lots of anise and licorice. Also hints of sugar. Flavour is really stuffed with anise and licorice. Also some other spices and brown sugar. Feels a lot like Gouden Carolus Christmas. Not your typical Dubbel.
Beautiful red with a creamy tan head. Very rich in fruit, dark malts, hint of sourness, caramel and cloves. Medium, fizzy carbonation and medium heavy body. Not only a solid sweetness but also some sharp hops. But sticky in the end. Very classic Belgian, but we’ll made. Pleasant drink, if not multiple on a night.
