Pours a good head that falls into a thin head with a fairly strong lacing. Color is dark to amber when held up to the light. A good, sweet scent that has a slight smokey undertone to it. It also has a nutmeg undertone that's a little more suttle. The mouthfeel is nice and crisp and well carbonated.

Can't belive I never reviewed this. Someone strip me of my "I wanna be a monk" card. Pours dark brown with a very noisy, frothy light tan head that settles quickly without much lace. Smell is caramel malt, some citrus fruits, and a hint of wood. Taste is plums, followed by a dry woodiness. There is some citrus up front but when the wood hits....this just sounds wrong somehow...it dries out completely. The finish is dry and a touch sharp. IMHO it is a perfect example of what a dubbel tastes like. The mouthfeel is aggresively carbonated and seems a bit lighter than you'd expect from the taste or the look. Overall, its fantastic. It's only held back by the yeast strain constantly reminding me of the 10, which has the same flavor notes but more complexity. But this is a great, great example of the style.

11.2oz brown bottle with a date of 28 09 10 stamped on the front. Pours a sligtly hazy medium brown with a huge head, great longevity and unbeliveable lace. Smells of chocolate and caramel malts. Some dried dark fruits and a spicy peppery yeastiness. Whiffs of alcohol are also present. chocolate and caramel notes are present mixed with a sherry like taste. Alcohol is present. Peppery hop presence is detected but the big malts make them quickly fade. Highly carbonated. Still a bit young to be a great beer but I have two more that will be very nice in a year or so.

Pours a really nice red/orange color with a huge tan head. Really nice looking beer.

Smell is of malt, yeast, and a bit of spice, mainly a hint of clove and coriander.

Big amount of fruit up from, mainly citrus notes. That is followed by a peppery spice, bit of cloves, hint of orange peel. I am also detecting a bit of Belgian candy sugar, and it finishes with a hint of pepper.

Smooth and creamy feel to this.

Another very nice Trappist beer. Has a lot of flavor and a decent amount of complexity, I could easily drink more of this, but I only have one bottle. I love Trappist beers, and this one is no exception.

Bottle code best by date: 090817

A. Cloudy, dark amber appearance with a 1/2 finger white head the has both good retention and lacing.

S. Somewhat shy nose - funky malt (almost like uncooked ground beef), yeast and pitted fruits. Intriguing.

T. The nose doesn't carry over too much to the palate - lots of bready malt but none of the funkiness or yeastiness from the nose. Seems lacking in flavor complexity for a Dubbel.

M. Light bodied and well carbonated.

O. Decent beer but not worth the $5.49 I paid for a single. Looking forward to trying the 8 and 10's I have staring at me.

A-Pours a deep amber, gold-red where thinner and more light shines through, with a rich head that dissipates into a persistent cap. Slight bubble formation on edge of glass within liquid.

S-Black forest cake and port. Malt, fig.

T-Launches into fruit notes, and carries over into heavy malt and a fair amount of spice, w/some nuttiness. Present throughout are dried, dark fruits (raisin, fig). Finish is light and pleasant, with lingering overtones of toasted malt and light spice.

M-Mouthfeel is very pleasant, with good carbonation that leaves palate clean, smooth body that is just heavy enough to complement the flavors, yet light enough to make them dance.

D-Very enjoyable. This libation is simple, harmonious, and a classic.

Add'l Notes: I decided to pair this with some leftovers to see the result, and surprisingly, it went very well with slow-cooked pork-loin with a base of vinegar, tomato sauce, and pineapple.

11.2oz bottle to a chalic.

A- Dark muddy water, 2 finger tight bubbled head that thins to a 1/4 inch lace that stays throughout.

S- Smells of brown sugar, dark candied fruit, and a bold bready yeast.

T- Carbonation tingle right up front, followed by a wave caramelized fruit, dry apples, figs, sweet toffee and red grapes.

M- Medium in body, high carbonation, sweet to the touch.

O- Its a great beer, a sipper, a treat, and an absolute classic.

Poured into my Duvel tulip out of the 330 mL bottle. There is a 2 inch head that settles slowly to a thick, dense, creamy crown. The beer is cola brown and has a nice chimney of carbonation rising from the center of the glass. It smells great. Sweet, spicy, malty with coriander, anise, soap, and fruity caramel bleeding out of the glass. The flavor is full, rich, dynamic, and strong. This is great. There is a citrusy and floral aspect underneath a well balanced malt base. There is a faint cherry taste from the alcohol and the end has a piny touch of hops. Just enough to make it bittersweet before the next malty start. Slightly cidery from the blend of sweet, tart, fruity, malty, and rich. Just the right amount of carbonation.
