Nice dark colour, good head with average retention. Some flaky yeast bits sink to the bottom of the goblet. Complex aroma of fruits (plums and cherries), sweetness, malty caramel, chocolat and finally some yeasty banana. Fruitiness dominates, but this is actually very pleasant as it smells like ripe fruits. No chemical aroma whatsoever. The fruits and malts come back in the taste as well, but fruit no longer dominates. There is a smooth bitterness that sets the tone and harmonizes well with the sweet fruits and caramels. The beer feels creamy like a Chouffe. Because the bitterness restricts the sweetness, you can taste bread as well. Malty goodness. Very refreshing with modest alcohol. This is such a nice beer, complex and characterful.

smroush (256) - Michigan, USA - APR 22, 2017
Aromas of bready malt along with some spice and fruit. Color is a dark brown with a very large light brown to yellow head. Taste is light to medium sweetness, surprisingly dry for such a malt oriented beer. Bitterness is light. Body is medium; texture is oily to creamy; carbonation average to slightly lively; finish is medium length with malt, light fruit and a bit of spice. Overall an interesting beer; not spectacular but a little different;I like the fruity/spicy esters.

oobawa (1078) - Tennessee, USA - APR 21, 2017
Wasnt expecting to prefer this to Westvleteren 8, but, well, here we are. Sweet but not overly so, with a nice fig, cherry and raisin fruitiness propped up by a buttered caramel malt undertone. Bitterness remains mostly restrained, instead letting the yeast take over the back end, offering up bread and fruit as it fades into sweet bliss. Creamy texture seems the slightest bit thin, but overall a great Dubbel.

AaronIPAAPA (82) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 17, 2017
Barwa ciemna, pod światło przebłyski. Średnio pęcherzykowa piana, utrzymuje się długo. Aromat słodkawy, bardzo mało intensywny. Czuć trochę rodzynek. W smaku czuć alkohol, goryczka niska, trochę śliwki i rodzynek. Mało ciała. Ocena na podstawie notatek pisanych przed założeniem konta na RB.

Bottle from Saveur beer. Pours brown with fluffy tan head. Aroma is dough, nut, hints of banana, chocolate, spice. Flavour is a medium sweet bread, nut, chocolate with a high carbonated effervescent finish. Dry plum spice finish. Lovely.
