L - Poured from a bottle into an oversized wine glass. 1.5 finger tan head on medium pour. Reduces down to a film. Not much lacing. Medium brown hazy color.

S - Bready malts up front. A little sweet.

T - Taste follows scent. Lovely malt flavors. Caramel and bread. Slightly yeasty in there. A little dry on the finish as it warms up.

F - Medium carbonation and medium mouthfeel.

O - Overall this is a fantastic beer. Great malty flavors and no bitterness. Definitely in my regular rotation and would recommend to anyone.

Poured from an 11.2 ounce bottle into a chalice, the "best by" date on bottle is "L.23.11.2025" which I understand to mean this beer was brewed on November 23, 2020 as the recommended shelf life is 5 years, price $6.49.

APPEARANCE: pours a light brown color with two-fingers tan head that quickly dissipated until a ring of small bubbles remained around the rim of glass, there is light lacing, medium carbonation for the style.

SMELL: subtle but pleasant to the nose, sweet caramel, banana bread and spice.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, initially sweet caramel and some spice then banana bread on the finish.

PALATE: medium body and carbonation.

Overall: I really enjoyed this beer, Belgian Dubbel is one of my favorite styles of beer and this one is very good, I will say the beer did not have great retention of the head and there was very little lacing on the glass although it was sufficiently carbonated and tasted great, I prefer Chimay with the red label but this is the next best Belgian Dubbel I have had to date, I would buy this again and would recommend to anyone who enjoys the style.

11.2oz bottle

Reddish brown. Smells really sweet and fruity, Belgian style. Banana and green apple and breakfast cereal, pretty creamy and powdery and high carbonation. Equal parts sweet baked bread and alcohol spice. Very tasty for 7%, and not as sweet as some other dubbels, but Chimay Red is better

Pours a cloudy, dark amber coloration with a medium, frothy head and some floaters on final pour. Smells of bready, caramel malt, toffee and fruity/spicy esters, with notes of apricot and clove. Taste is an excellent balance of bready, caramel malt, toffee, fruity and quite spice esters, with notes of apricot and clove, as well as some subtle, floral and bitter hoppy accents, with just a hint of orange rind coming through as well. Finishes bittersweet, with a light bitterness and some toffee and esters lingering in the aftertaste. Full mouthfeel with a medium/rich body and medium carbonation.

This actually reminds me a lot of their Triple Extra, or perhaps that should be the other way around. The general flavor profile is rather similar, with this being a bit less rich and sweet, but still feeling quite satisfying. It does feel like a bit of a cross between a Dubbel and a Tripel overall though, being a bit lighter in color and more toffee-forward than your average Dubbel, while the flavor profile seems a bit closer to a Tripel than a Dubbel in general. Still, this makes for a very enjoyable brew in its own way, that's quite rich and satisfying, with a great balance of sweet, estery and slightly bitter notes.

I have never been a massive fan of Trappistes Rochefort beers...I have always preferred others such as Chimay...and I lived in Paris for 9 months and tried every one basically ; )

Mystical deep brown colour. foamy bubbly head.

Deep fermented, pruney aroma...

For me the taste does not have anything special going on. It is really smooth though. The aftertaste is the highlight...but overall it really isn't that different to a much cheaper or less famous dubbel. I am not really a fan of dubbels anyway...I like West Coast IPA's, hoppy pilsners and smooth dark beers...good complex mouth feel though.

A bit over rated in my opinion.

Look: Cloudy, honey colored, small layer of foam persists. It looks like really dehydrated person's pee.

Smell: very yeasty, hoppy, a little honey sweetness. not very fragrant though. I had to sniff really hard to smell these.

Taste: Its like drinking a lager with some honey mixed into it. It has an initial sweetness and then it mellows out to a bitterness. Kinda like honey caramel??? Malty, bready, honey, caramel. Kinda hard to drink by itself but I'd imagine it would go great with food! Maybe a red meat?

Feel: Really thick when it enters your mouth but then when you swallow it, it leaves a nice fizzy feeling that refreshes everything. Very interesting mouthfeel. Almost overwhelming in terms of how thick it feels but then it dissipates very quickly and leaves you wanting for more. Really compliments the taste of the beer as it has a strong honey/sweet flavor.

Overall: I think this is a great holiday beer or a great fall/winter beer. Reminds me a little of gathering around family with a nice warm spiced cider and your mother asks you if you have a boyfriend yet and you have to try not to sound THAT sad and say that you're just waiting for the right person, but in reality, you haven't had a date in a really long time and you are worrying that maybe there is something wrong with you and not that you are waiting for someone "right". But alas here are enjoying family time, so you push those emotions under and never speak of them. and its a very comfy beer.

Iced tea colour. Caramel, raisin & bread on the cup-cakey welcoming nose. Mostly dried fruit (cherries, dates) on the palate. More bread on the finish. Medium minor acidity & body. Quite fizzy. Shall do well with a cheese and charcuterie board.

Slightly hazy reddish amber color with a foamy white head that retains well producing a bit of lacing.
The aroma is sweet malt and fresh bread with hints of honey, plums and raisins.
The taste is Similar with more of the honey taste plus caramel and spices, finishes with a lingering caramel and cracker notes.
It is full bodied, but creamy smooth.
Altogether a very nice and enjoyable brew, outstanding.

330ml bottle. Label has best by date as '25.04.2025'.
Cloudy, deep amber colored body. Lots of carbonation maintain an off white cap. No lacing with this bottle.
Aroma of sweet malt and distant yeast phenolic spices. Hint of dark fruit.
Taste is a sweet, dark bready malt, with a yeast tang that also expresses some spices (coriander, cloves). Towards the end there is some raisin and prune. Drying in the after taste.
Mouth feel is filled with bubbles. Softer feel, with some stretch. Excellent carbonation.
Quite delicate, but complex and rewarding, if one takes the time to allow the beer to express fully. Hold the beer in the mouth and delay swallowing. Alcohol is hidden, but there is a slight sting to the tongue.
