UPDATED: JAN 12, 2014 Bottle is 4.5 years old, found at liquor store with best buy date of 04/08/11. Dark brown color with small head and good carbonation left after so many years. Aroma is strong with vinous notes, plum, caramel and a light tingle. Flavor has caramel cocoa malts with no bitterness. Very smooth and good drinking overall.
8/4/2007: (7)(3)(9)(3)(1 Dark brown color with medium diminishing head and some lacing. Nice rich malty aroma and flavor. Better than the tripel as there is less alcohol flavor

Flaske. Utrolig flot dybrd-brun farve. Ingen sedimenter men masser af smag. Gav endelig mening for mig.

One of my favorite beers. Strong, smooth taste and a great aroma. This beer had a cloudy body and a strong malty flavor

Nice aroma. Thin head, nice aroma. Lightly malty, a bit fruity, kind of a light trappist ale. Some sediment when you pour, and a nice complex flavour. A good beer... not quite a rochefort, but stands on its own quite well.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2010 Best by 05/16/2008. Sampled in my Westmalle challis. The beer pours to an unfiltered deep brown body with a thin khaki head. The aroma is quite fruity with notes of raspberries amongst the strong port wine and fresh unfiltered grape juice. How the heck does it smell this much like grapes? The flavor is a grapey sweet yeasty tobacco-like malt. The palate is creamy and juicy. Nice medium body.

Pours a nice reddish mahog color. Small white poofy head and has a nose of fruit and yeast. Tastes a little like buble gum and goes down smooth with aftertaste of fruit and spice. Good but not my favorite.

Rich smooth flavor with a long dry aftertaste. Theres a rich, chocolatey flavor that precedes a slight hoppy finish.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2007 Bottle. Pours a deep reddish-brown with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma is candy sugar with slight malt and dark fruit characteristics. Taste is malt and candy sugar up front, and on the back end I detected some hints of plum, raisin, and spices like cinnamon and maybe coriander. An absolutely wonderful dubbel, and one of my all-time favorites.

11.2 oz bottle. Dark, translucent brown with a bit of an orange tinge. Impressive sticky, light brown head. Aroma is fresh and sweet, with suggestions of both sweet malt and candi sugar. Something a little sharper underneath, as well. Taste is dominated initially by sweetness, but there is some complexity beneath. There are hints of cloves, cinnamon, cherries, alcohol, and a bit of stewed dark fruit. Nice hoppy finish. Another one that requires further study.
