Not a very good shot at a dubbel. Hits hard with a 9.2 abv, but over a pretty boring, yeast-dominated body. Ends with an almost cloying, lightly bitter palate. MikeF (538) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAR 4, 2002
Very Sweet in flavor. An average Belgian in every respect.................. Gusler (2652) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 21, 2002
Pours a deep cloudy brown, enormous chocolate head, tons of lace, fairly large malt nose, hints of fruit, caramel. Front is malt sweet, the top medium and acidic, the finish dry, moderate carbonation, fair to middlin hop presence. VERRRRRRY Interrrresting! Beer, pretty decent I'd say Thanks JCA I bet right out the cask it must be a 'Hoot'. jcalbi (380) - Medford, New Jersey, USA - JAN 20, 2002
Clloudy, chocolate brown appearance with a faint hop aroma. Not as complex in the 1 liter bottle as I remember the cask conditioned version. Still an nice double/triple. SNIAT (120) - Passaic, New Jersey, USA - JAN 11, 2002
Sweet and malty, without the complexity of most Belgium beers. Great try though.

A rather unique brew. a cross between a dubbel and tripel.
very malty and rather sweet but still dry and subtle.
available cask-conditioned - very smooth this way.

Definitely funky in a Belgian way.
Has plenty of the malt sweetness of
a dubbel, yet without the complexity of
the best ones. It also has the dry finish,
spiciness, and strength of a tripel.
