A: Brown maple color, hazey, more opaque than not. Ruby hints around the edges. Craggy dense head at 2 fingers with GREAT retention and lots of lacing. Beautiful little carbonation trails rising slowly throughout the session.

S: Dark bread, raisins, sweet malt.

T: Sweet malt, dark bread, fruity, yeast in the finish.

M: Smooth, medium body, not over carbonated, dry finish but balanced.

O: Quite an enjoyable duppel!

Appearance = dark brown, amber
Aroma - licorice, brown sugar, biscuit and toast, dark Belgian sugar and a little alcohol.
Flavor -
In the front, a nice alcohol flavour but not "bite," some decent amount bitterness.
In the middle, more alcohol but brown sugar and dark candy sugar. Malt is also present like biscuit and/or abbey. It's got lots of sweet flavors here. Yum!
In the back, some sourness, less sweet, and some Pils malt flavour.
Aftertaste, slight tartness, actually almost a coriander taste, but not quite... and of course sweet malts and wonderful dark sugars.
Overall, a wonderful mix of dark candy sugars, some bitterness up front and a nice balance with tartness/spiciness in the back. Very good beer. You taste the alcohol a little but it doesn't burn at all and it drinks very smoothly and stays thick in the mouth.

330ml bottle, poured into Kasteel chalice. A: Very dark mahogany, opaque, one fat
finger head, very good retention and lacing. S: Raspberry, malt, molasses. T: Brown
sugar, malt raspberry, molasses, hints of yeast and cork,booze well hidden. M:
Smooth and crisp. Light body for the high abv, moderate carbonation. O: Fairly
typical dark beer from the Du Boca line up, for some reason there seemed to be
less going on than with lower strength beers from the same brewery, by no means
a bad beer but unexciting.

On tap at the Brabantse Aap in Amsterdam.

Served in a porcelain chalice - dark, malty flavor, characteristic of a trappist dubbel, but with a little more punch. Not much carbonation, a rather smooth finish. Overall, a nice representation of a dark, Belgian-style strong ale.

This beer is dark brow with a red hue. The head and lace are both frothy and an almost tan off white. The aroma is roasted malt with raisins and prunes. It has a spicy end but is mainly dried fruit like in flavor. The mouth feel is on the heavier end of medium. Overall not that bad.

On-tap at De Bekeerde Suster, Amsterdam, Netherlands

A: The beer is hazy dark reddish brown in color. It poured with a finger high beige head that died down and left a large patch of bubbles in the center of the glass and a collar around the edge.
S: Light aromas of dark fruits are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of dark fruits with hints of sweetness and faint amounts of spices towards the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very drinkable dubbel that seems to have just enough sweetness. The alcohol is very well hidden.
