Small bottle. Dark brown beer with toasty and fruity aromas. Full flavored. Not overpowering, very drinkable. Turns a little sour at the end, but balanced with a little sweet. Subtle dark chocolate notes. tompete (350) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 31, 2008
Very malty. A solid trappist ale. Unexpectedly plain. Almost too much malt flavor. BustedFlat (554) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - MAR 30, 2008
Poured deep amber with a foamy tan head. Aroma - dark fruit, malt and yeast. Very creamy mouthfeel. Fruity and bready with floral hops. A touch dry. Some bitterness.

A miracle - perfect combination of sweetness, alcohol and carbonation
Spiced and with a characteristic yeast-fruity taste BuckeyeSammy (617) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2009 Dark ruby amber, thick beige head, nice lacing. Aroma of dark fruits, wine, slight malt. Hmm large carbonated, interesting beer. Flavor of dark fruits, deep bitter undertones, candied malt very prevalent. Hard to pinpoint the flavors. Heavy carnation, enjoyable.

Redbrown with a creamy head. Very fruity aroma with notes of plumes and raisins. The flavour is spicy and pebberish with dark fruits dominating. lucke13 (91) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - MAR 24, 2008
Poured a redish brown with a small tan head. Aroma of malt and fruit. Taste was slightly acidic, but had a nice balance of malt and hop. Main flavors were dark fruits. Contained a large amount of carbonation for the amount of head present. Not the best Trappist Ale I’ve had, but good. grikmok (132) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAR 23, 2008
Poured to a Westmalle Trappist glass in a Belgian restaurant. Initial flavor of raisins and plums, flavors ended with a slight bitterness and yeast. Great beer. austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - MAR 23, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2009 Dark brown, lightly tanned head. Nose is sweetly malty with dark fruits and spices. Flavor is dry and malty, some dates and earthy notes. Finishes dry with hop bitterness. Medium bodied with a bit too heavy, foamy carbonation, somehow hollow palate. But nicely dry for a dubbel. ( 8 4 8 4 16) RomanW70 (296) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Re-rate: Candi sugar, pear, spices and rye in the aroma. Flavor is pretty much the same, some roastiness and cellar. Easy drinking dubbel, but nothing to dream about.
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. .
