From bottle dated 01 2013 at Rattle n Hum. Definite brune aroma, but not very potent. Poured to a respectable head & left a resonable lacing in the upper reaches of the glass. Texture was a bit thin but the flavor was not.

Although a tad sweet, the first impression is of umami. It has the complex aroma of prunes & (I hate to say it, but...) leather that endS up with a taste much more grounded& earthy. It taste much mor uncuous than it feels. A wonder of aroma, flavor & texture

Much smoother than the Maredsous 10, and overall very excellent in general. Tried this at a restaurant in Changsha, China and absolutely loved it. Beautiful copper color, just the right amount of head and lace and not too bitter as one might expect from 8% alcohol. No burn going down and a perfect compliment to any meal.

330 ml short bottle poured into a snifter. A light brown amber hue with a moderate amount of beige honeycomb-like head. Aroma is spicy and sweet, lightly roasted, with root beer or sarsaparilla, gingerbread, light molasses, and candy apple notes discernible. Palate delivers some chocolate and coffee to complement these sweet and spicy elements, a rather bitter yet smooth and rich dubbel, with more body than most Trappist examples (which swing toward the more attenuated) and a pleasant molasses-like or puffed wheat square note in the roasty finish. A sour fruitiness lurks in the background. I appreciate the richer flavors here.
