330 ml. bottle, served in chalice glass (I can't find my Rochefort one). Red copper colour, with a small head that fades soon, leaving a minimal lace. Smell of chocolate, cherries, ripened fruits, port wine. Palate is just a pleasure, not much carbonation, just go round your tongue like a nectar. Taste is like the smell: cherries, chocolate, port wine, dark and ripened fruits, caramel. Glory.

330ml bottle into a goblet.

Pours a hazy dark brown with a huge billowy white head. Incredible head retention with equally substantial lacing. Very typical for the style.

Aroma of dark fruit in the way of figs and dried cherries. Just a touch medicinal with some grape and red wine notes. Yeasty Belgian spice too.

The flavor is quite spicy but brings in some caramel to go along with the dark fruit and Belgian yeast spice. Some pepper and vanilla notes and a touch of wood. Very light oxidation but nothing compared to some aged Belgians I have had. Very light and floaty mouthfeel with a very light lingering sweetness.

Overall, a really nice Belgian Ale and one of the standards. While the complexity is a bit lacking compared to the quads, this beer holds its own with the other Dubbels out there and is a treat to drink.

33cl bottle poured into a Rochefort Glass.

A- Pours a muddy brown though with lovely lacing.

S- Yeasts and spices, even apples, but I always find the apples with these beers.

T- Heavier Malt than I expected for a 6. Less sugary than the Rochefort 8.

M- Carbonation is good at first. Not the creamy smoothness of its stronger stablemates.

O- Overall it tastes closer to an Achel Brown than a Rochefort 8 or 10. Does not have the same quality feeling about it either. For such a strong malty taste I would have expected more taste, still an enjoyable beer but not the best for me.

Poured from 330 ml bottle into Cantillon glass.

Color is muddy (but fairly light) brown. Moderate, off-white head.

Smell is lightly sweet, with a hint of spice.

Taste adds toastiness, burned caramel, hard candy.

That said, the beer feels light, and the 7.5% ABV is masked superbly. So, it's surprisingly drinkable, given its taste profile.
