Im surprized at how low that people have rated this exeptional beer. This is actually my favorite beer in the Belgium Abbey Dubbel line. Described as the "Burgandy" of Belgiuym, it is a rich and robust beer that even beats many in the St. Bernardus line.
A - Poured into a 12 oz goblet. Amber brown and next to nothing lacing.
S - Gorgeous. Sweet Brown Sugar, Hops and Malt.
T- Refreshing brown sugar with a carbonated snap.
M - Nice weight and gravity. goes down like water with a consistent aftertaste.
D- It realy is one of my all time favorities.The price does keep me away from ordering it all the time, but I will get it for my next special holiday.

4.9/5  rDev +27.9%

Appearance: Deep amber with a tan, creamy head. Very attractive looking beer with a head that lasts.
Smell: A mix of floral and fruity notes. Not overwhelming but very enjoyable.
Taste: There's a noticeable fruit note, possibly apple. A nice hop taste, but not overwhelming. Very, very smooth drink.
Mouthfeel: Not too crisp, and just enough carbonation.
Drinkability: This is a fantastic tasting beer worth enjoying on nice occasions or with dinner. Definitely something worth taking your time and enjoying.

4.83/5  rDev +26.1%

Poured in a "maudite" glass, around 12 celcius.

Pours a rich ldark brown, huge head, lots of carbonation and laces well. Aroma of belgian candi, figs and heavily caramelised cristal malt. Flavor a huge mouthfull of ripe dark dried fruit (dates, prunes, figs), a solid grainy malt caracter and a well balanced bitterness.

Finished dry, I love it. Could easily drink this for the rest of my life.

A- Great head that sticks to the glass and lingers for quite a bit. Almost a orange brown hue.

S- Malty with just a backround hint of hops. Less yeasty as most Belgium abbyey beers.

T- Sweet malty and rich with some notes of coffee and chocolate, also a bit of sugary candy on the end.

M- Nice carbination, very well balanced. Smooth yet not too light.

D- Great beer if you have never tried it, Dont pass this one up.

I had an Affligem on tap at a bar in Paris a couple weeks ago on the recommendation of the guy at the next stool. It was served in a nice chalice glass with the Affligem logo. It had a bright lemmony nose and held a good half inch head. The taste was crisp and dry with a great balance of hops and malt. Paris is not a good beer town but as long as I can find one of these I'm not ordering wine.

750ml Corked bottle:
Pours a rich dark brown that has deep hints of redness. You almost can't see through this one. The head is tan, full and rich as shaving cream. The nose, while not strong, is sweet spicy malt with a tinge of alcohol. The head just won't die on this one. Very heavy carbonation that adds effervescence and continuously builds the head up. The flavor is just excellent! The hops are strong and aggressive while exceptionally well balanced to each other and the malt. The malt is mostly dry with a hint of fruit flavor and a spice that is just perfect. This is just a damn fine beer.

4.63/5  rDev +20.9%

Presentation: 750ml brown bottle, corked and caged.

Appearance: Clear ruby amber color, very small off white head, moderate effervescence, good retention

Smell: Sweet malt, port like, slightly burning alcohol sensation, loaded with rum soaked plums, cherries, and raisins. Smells wonderful

Taste: sweet malt, carbonation explodes into a creamy mouthfeel. Medium phenols and biterness. More dark fruits. Dry finish with a snappy bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Full and creamy. A wonder and tasty beer that would be great for desert.
