A - dark mahogany brown with about an inch of foamy head which quickly went away

S - sweet, chocolatey, caramel, nougat, butterscotch, toffee

T - Chocolate very rich and malty. Fruity aftertaste and I can't really get more specific then that but not citrus fruits. Concludes with a nice dry finish

M - medium mouthfeel

D - A delicious brew and the moderate abv% could make this to a session beer if you are feeling so inclined. I know I'd be down.

Overall, a gem of a beer and I expect nothing less from the Trappists

Poured into a chalice from a bottle. The beer pours a slightly hazy dark ruby, forming a 1/2 inch tan head with slight lacing. The aroma is a combination of dark fruit aromas, along with some sugar sweetness and a noticeable amount of alcohol. The taste starts with light sweet maltiness leading into dark fruit flavors and ending with a slight alcohol presence. Nice smooth mouthfeel. Full flavor, medium body, and not too high alcohol lead to a very drinkable dubble. Overall, not bad at all. I can see why this gets such great reviews. I'm not sure if this is the best dubble I've had, but its definitly near the top.

A deep brown with garnet hi lights. A big foamy head like merange and appears to be nicely carbonated.
Sweet malt with a nice fruitiness about it.
Sweet malt taste like the aroma, with candied sugar, plums and dates. I'm not picking up much in way of hops. Bitter at end with a dry finish.
Body wise I thought it felt a little thin around the edges but I'm not overly concerned.
A very good tasting beer that gains in flavor as it warms. Nice lacing from the always present head.
Cellar worthy
I deem this beer good to the last drop.
Drink well my friends.
