Appearance: Classic dark look of a Dubbel.
Smell: Great great smell.
Taste: There are not enough of "o's in smooooth to describe this taste.
Mouthfeel: I would say medium, the beer has a champagne like taste to me.

Overall: Simply said I can't find anything to criticize about this beer. I cannot criticize monks that give their life to God and in the process make mankind very happy. Superb.

Not a style I seek frequently, but one that could grow on me. Pours nicely into my Chimay chalice, forming a beautiful two-finger head. Thick brown look to it. 
Great yeast aroma even as I poured the bottle. Raisin, some malt. 
Taste is like the smell, even a bit nicer once i get past the initial booziness. I pick up roasty toffee along with the aforementioned. Nice and creamy. That yeast blends well. 
Tastes smooth for the abv. My favorite part of tasting this is the finish..a nice toasted, rich nutty aftertaste.

A: Rummy dark brown with nice creamy beige head.

S: Marzipan, ripe red grapes and medicine. Banana.

T: A little too sweet at first. Plenty of ripe red grapes. Loads of that marzipan/nail varnish flavour. Strong burned malty flavour behind it all which I find quite unpleasant.

O: It was my favourite beer for a while but I'm getting bored of Belgian Brunes.
