Dours dark brown with a frothy white head that disappears into a ring. Aroma of dark fruits, red wine, and spices. Initial tatse of dark fruits, candied malts and wine. Finishes very tart and slightly bitter. .

Date stamp of 18/12/08. The beer pours a dark brown color, reminiscent of root beer, with a frothy light brown head. The head soon drops leaving behind a thin ring. The aroma is very subtle and we struggled to come up with specifics. It’s mostly lightly sweet malt, with some faint dark fruit and a mild spice note. The taste is as easy on the palate as the aroma was on the nose. Malt and caramelized brown sugar come to mind. There’s a hint of cinnamon noted. The finish is dry and mildly bitter, with a lot of carbonation felt on the tongue.

Bottle 75 cl. Hazy brown body with a large dense beige head. Fruity notes in the nose. Sweet malt dominates the flavour and aftertaste.

Didn’t get much in the way of aroma, but I think I may have served it a bit too cold. This is a very nice trappist dubbel. I’ll be trying it again.

FishManLA (337) - Abita Springs, Louisiana, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Nose of plumbs and prunes. A dark brown color with a full tan head that dissipates fairly quickly. Taste follows the nose with fruitness as well as a distinct carmel taste and an herbiness. Mouthfeel is somewhat syrupey which lowered my rating a bit.

4.4
kiefdog (1827) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2008
33cl bottle from Willow Bend Liquors (FL). Pours a dark chocolate brown with a thin tan head. In the nose, the beer smells slightly sweet, caramel, hints of toffee, inviting aroma. Flavor: sweet, malty, smooth, hints of spices and herbs with a very slight sour/sweet finish. Tastes faintly of barley on subsequent sips. Nice dubbel.

Ober (2811) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2008
I think one of the well-known trappist beers in the Netherlands. It’s maybe the standard for the most people, if they think how a trappist has to be. Particular for those who aren’t familiar with beers. It’s red/brown colored beer, with a large creamy dark beige foamy head. An aroma which begins a little sweet, fruits, then caramel and a litlle spicy. The taste is complex, a little roasted malts, also some dark fruit, with caramel and at the end some bitternes. In my opion a very good beer.
