One of my all-time favorites. I love abbey dubbels, and this has got to be the best one I've ever tried. Simply delicious and something every beer drinker should try! Full of ripe esters and wonderful complex malt and yeast characteristics. Pours with a luxurious head.

Are you guys kidding?.....some of the reserved reviews of this beer make my blood boil...this is, without question, one of the world's top 10 beers and everything one would expect from a Trappist...big intense aromas, gorgeous head, deep and rich satisfying flavours....if you don't like this one then you should stick to you Coor's Light!

Brewed by Belgium monks, this is one of the finest beers in the world. Expensive but definitely worth it, this beer has an incredibly complex flavor. This beer, also known as the most expensive beer on the Bernie's passport ($10), is very fancy, very delicious and very out of my normal price range

Served on tap at Hellhunt Pub in Tallin, Estonia. Paid €3.50. What a deal. I can see why people spend over $13 in the U.S. for it. Exceptional beer that exemplifies the style. I will gladly pay the price back in the U.S. for this brew. Again to reiterate, if you can afford the airfare Estonia is probably the place to go in Northern Europe for awesome beer at Bud Lt. price!
