Year old bottle stored at proper cellar temp. Poured into goblet.

Murky brown pour with ruby highlights. Finger and a half light tan head. Lacing is excellent.

Brown sugar, vanilla, dark stone fruits, slight alcohol. There is some bananas and digestive cookies. There is a touch of chocolate and burnt toast.

Burnt toast, slight alcohol, dark stone fruits, brown sugar, vanilla, some dark roasted coffee in the finish.

Light to medium body, carbonation is slightly high.

Ive had several times by now, but just getting around to review.
Poured from 11.2oz bottle into glass. pours a deep brown with ruby hue; thick tan foam and lacing. Raisony, dried fruit aromas, with hints of some chocolate; your favorite abbey like aromas.
Taste is bready, dried fruit, chocolate; again typical belgian abbey that we all hope is there. There is a lot going on here. Its a bit harsh/hot in the mouth...not as smooth as I like, but still easy to drink, but it works well.
What is left to say that hasnt been said over a thousand times already...
its a great trappist brew...as most are. Old faithful when in the mood for the style. I usually go for this, a rochefort, or abt 12 when I want a good abbey brew...

I've tried quite a few times trippel version of Westmalle and was blown away each time. That's why I decided to go for dubbel, too. It has awesome dark color, nice head, malty taste and dark fruits aromas. Alcohol is well hidden, although it does hit hard. Overall, would go for this one anytime again. I see it as suitable in the evenings and in the winter period. If i had to choose between this one and trippel, I would still go for the last.
