33cl bottle (19/09/15) into a goblet. Amber brown, one finger tan head that settles slowly leaving a thin foam that stays. Lively carbonation and some sediments.
Smells of sweet dark malts and dark fruit. Smooth taste of toasted malts, candy sugar and dark fruits, plums and raisins. Sweet but not sugary. A dry finish that leaves a lingering sweet aftertaste of toasted bready malts and fruitiness with a hint of chocolate. No taste of alcohol. Medium-full body and carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. Easily drinkable and very enjoyable. A really good dubbel, my favourite this far.

11.2 ounce bottle poured into a big wine glass because I didn't have a chalice. Yeah, I know.
Appearance: Pours a dark, cloudy reddish brown with a big creamy head that sticks around forever. Good amount of lacing, too. Cool looking beer.
Aroma: There's a lot going on in the smell. Smells of dark fruits, raisins, dates, figs, toast, some mild spiciness, a little floral character, and maltiness.
Taste: The taste follows the nose, and it's complex, creamy and delicious. Really a terrific beer. The dark fruits dominate and the finish is appealingly bitter. Alcohol is muted in the nose and on the palate.
Mouthfeel: It's a fun beer to drink; creamy and smooth, with a big sturdy body.
Overall: A terrific, classic beer. It's pretty close to perfect in my opinion.

Pours a dark reddish brown with a thick head that falls but leaves a thin head throughout the glass.
Smells of raisins, fruity and floral.
Taste is raisins, light rum and a crisp finish.
Lots of carbonation and a crisp finish, thin body makes this pretty drinkable despite the 7% abv.
Overall, first Trappist dubbel and a very good one!
