3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted on 1/27/13 from a corked and caged 750mL bottle from the Rare Beer Club. Pours a very dark mahogany color with a very thick beige head that slowly recedes to super thick and rocky lace. The nose is malty but dry with cocoa nibs, some chocolate, cola, and vanilla. The flavor is the same, very dry with the cola notes up front, moving to the toasted cocoa nibs and a nice dose of roasted bitterness. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long cola and bitter roasted finish.
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Ovo mi je 'najdrukčiji' od ovih 'Duplosladnih' Belgijanaca koje sam do sada pio. Kao prvo boja , krasna crvenkasta. I okus koji ima malo vinskog šmeka. Meni krasno pivo! :) melush (4961) - SPAIN - JAN 3, 2018

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2017 Birra dal colore marrone scuro con riflessi ramati, schiuma beige non troppo persistente, sapori di cacao, caffè, caramellato e maltato. La gradazione alcolica viene ben nascosta, e la poca corposità ne favorisce la bevuta FireGlider (717) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 25, 2017
Hazy dark amber color with big foamy head. Caramel, malt and dark fruits. Light fruity sweetness. Quite balanced, but flavor is too light. Needs some stronger flavor. This feels like watching something far away. You can see it, but you can't really be sure what it is. nathanvc (796) - Brugge, BELGIUM - AUG 28, 2017
At Brugs Beertje, Bruges. Pours hazy dark brown with a lasting, foamy, tan head. The aroma contains caramel, roasted malt, bread & yeast, dark chocolate, dark fruits, alcohol, hops and herbs. It tastes medium chocolatey and caramel-like sweet and medium herbal bitter with a dry, warming, alcoholic finish. Full body, oily/sticky texture, fizzy carbonation. A great Abbey Dubbel; well done by Dilewyns. Piepenhenrich (1285) - Steinbach, GERMANY - AUG 27, 2017
Good Belgian Dubbel, dark, complex, rich in taste, among the better if its kind. Jimbo2 (554) - DENMARK - JUL 16, 2017
Dark, beige foam. Balanced, slight roasted sweetness. A bit estery and with some subdued bitterness.
