Dark red/brown with a cottony off white head. Smells fruity and buttery with some coffee and caramel hints. The flavor is sweet, with candy corn and butter dominating followed by a medium finish that lingers. Very nice.

2 ounce sample at 99 Bottles, Federal Way, WA. Off-white head. Good lacing. Lightly cloudy body. Dark orange-brown color. Major aromas and flavors include caramel, coffee, grass, raisin, plum, coriander. Primary flavor is caramel-infused coffee. Sweet-to-dry finish that has a long duration. Excellent.

33cl bottle. This is a magic beer. First you get loads of dark fruits, followed by wonderful caramel tones and then a nice background bitterness. What a wonderful brew. One of my definite favourites.

No super strong aroma. Head was full and tan. A dark brown color. Looks refreshing. Smooth taste that is just barely rich enough to excite the taste buds. Very tasty, and strongly recommended.

WallyWalrus (205) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2007
11.2oz bottle. Pours a rich brown/ruby red with a billowy but fleeting mocha-colored head. Aroma is both sweet and malty with hints of dark and sour fruit mingling with caramel and roasted malt. Taste is full but not rich, with a very dry malty initial flavor opening up into a bouquet of dark fruit -- smooth and sweet, but also slightly tart. A fine dubbel, though not as complex as others.

330ml Bottle. Pours an almost perfect brown, with hints of fall reds and oranges trying to peek out. The head is a creamy toasted marshmallow the slowly dissolves back into the body of the glass. A lacing of toasted foam laces the glass as the head disappears. Upon opening and pouring the beautiful bouquet of raisins and undertones of carmelized malts blossoms to fill the area with its uniquely magnificent scent. The anticipation of the first sip is only heightened by actually taking the first sip and realizing the tantalizing aromas are fulfilled in the rich textures and excellent blend of flavors. Rasins, malts, and prunes balanced to cradle each one as it delicously tantalizes your taste buds. The feeling is of a smooth, not light, but not heavy silky liquid that embraces your mouth and slides down the throat easily. The lingering fruity malty and just mildly alchoholic flavors blend to leave you wanting the next sip. All too soon, you have realized that your sensation of utter delight has been completed and your yearning for the next taste sensation of a Westmalle Dubbel has already begun. Cest Magnifique!

uhre (384) - DENMARK - OCT 21, 2007
The aroma has fruits like prunes but it also has a malty taste with a tint of alcohol. It pours a brown head, which doesnt last that long. The flavor dominated by the taste of prunes and raisens very well-balanced!

bhensonb (14632) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 21, 2007
Aroma of dark, cherryish, fruit. Rich mahogany color, with tiny bubbles and a decent beige head. Thin to medium bodied with moderate, nigh creamy, carbonation. The flavor is light reddish berry and roasted malt. Also raisin and lighter stone fruits. Mouthsmackingly good. The finish tends toward dry, and there is a fruity, dark fruity, coating. Very refreshing. Especially after the Rocheforte 10.

ako (166) - Turku, FINLAND - OCT 18, 2007
Murky red, faint head. Crisp flavor turns into very soft after pouring the yeast in. Feels and tastes like a different beer. Malty aroma is not very strong. Slight hints of yeast in the smooth finish. Well balanced, very nice brew.
