Pours a hazy mist. Reddish head, with scents of apples, berries, and nuts. Sweet flavor. Wonderful taste as well as a wonderful aftertaste. Would highly recommend.

Naka (719) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2008
Pours a dark hazy brown with a little fizzy head. Nose of sweet apples, brown sugar, a hint of sour and some alcohol. A little bit of bitter at the end as well. Sweet bready yeasty flavor with an extremely dry finish. Not a whole lot of body, but a nice effervescence that plays on the tongue.

Ljunkan (530) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JAN 27, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2009 33 cl bottle from Systembolaget. First time I drank this I was dissapointed, but the second time it turned out to be really good. Vinous, light acid but at the same time sweet taste with a lot of plums. Great! Probably my favourite dubbel.

4.1
Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 25, 2008
Pours a hazy amber with just a bit of head that has a reddish tone. Smell is definitely caramelized sugar and caramel. Flavor is of caramel, caramelized nuts and hops. A good dubbel- don:t realize its alcohol content.

ElGaucho56 (394) - USA - JAN 25, 2008
330cl bottle, marked 6/12/07. Pours a lovely clear russet-brown with minimal yet dense khaki head. Nose is full of berries, almost like blackberry jam, with a hint of oaky vanilla and fresh baked pastry. Not too thick on the palate, but creamy, with again more berries, some grainy biscuit, before the zesty herbal hops kick in, following through to the dry sherry finish, ending just slightly warm. A lovely, complex dubbel.

stef7321 (15) - Williamsburg, Virginia, USA - JAN 23, 2008
A nice beer, but a bit light in taste for me. Pours a deep brown with reddist overtones. Nice hop presence with a very smooth, dry finish. I would have liked to have seen a bit more punch from this, but even the light flavor of this beer hides the alcohol very well. Easy to drink, you could have a few of these.

hoppopotamus (260) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - JAN 22, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2008 I like this beer. A dark ruby-red brown with some fine sediment and a light brown head. Aroma hits you had with sweet malt, like molasses, and some dark fruit in the background. The taste is well balanced, with a large malt backbone (a bit of chocolate) with some sweetness followed by a bit of hop bitterness and spice. Low carbonation. Not a trace of the alcohol. I could drink this all night.

tunneler (131) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2008
dark fruity nose with subdued yeast. sweet taste and dry finish. Just in case anyone makes the same mistake: make sure to let this warm up properly before drinking it’s worlds different and much better at the proper temp (same can be said for all the Trappist beers)
