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

In a nice chalice/snifter glass.
Rich, creamy head that did lace.
Dark amber coloring with some 'shimmering' of something. I don't think I was not that drunk to halucinate.
A good rich, smooth and tingley taste. Hints of honeydew, pear, some mild spices, biscuit, caramel, and malt in the body. Finish was crisp yet coated a bit just enough to let the taste linger a bit. Very easy drinking, however I gave it a 4.5 due to its richness. couldn't have too many of these.

Uma grande dubbel. Ela é da escola mais avermelhada do estilo, e possui uma interessante peculiaridade. Ela me pareceu seca, assim como vinho. Esse foi uma aspecto agradável. É um cerveja equilibrada e bem gostosa. Mais uma ótima cerveja da Maredsous.

Apariencia: Cerveza turbia color marrón intenso con una dorada cabeza de espuma de alta densidad y retención.

Aroma: Aroma agradable a caramelo, azúcar quemada, alcohol. El aroma a lúpulo es prácticamente imperceptible.

Sabor: Sabor ligero a malta con notas a caramelo, melasa, frutas y sensación alcohólica. Agradablemente dulce y sutilmente amarga. Algunas notas de hierbas aromáticas.

Sensación: Cuerpo alto con carbonatación media-alta.

General: Una cerveza bastante rica. Balanceada en sus aspectos y con personalidad. Representa de manera muy adecuada el estilo de cervezas de abadía. Muy recomendable para cerveceros con gusto por los sabores complejos.

The crystal mug turned a nice rich mahagony with a little cloudy mistyness in color. The head is off white, beige and lacing is beautiful.
The smell hints many flavors which are hard to pinpoint.
But the taste is phenomenal. Your mouth will be filled with a surprising freshness of banana ,chocolate, coffee, and other fruits. A great balance of bittersweet hops at the end, which invigorates for more. great prickly mouthfeel asks for more beer. Very drinkable.One great beer!

Looks like highly brown color at a glance, but turned to a much lighter shade on the edges. Its thin head sat and never went away no matter how long I left it alone while conversing - this is rare for a dubbel. Also had very good lacing and a bit of staining. Damn good looking.

Smelled of licorice, dark chocolate, and roasted nuts that were more earthy than sweet. Some typical pruny, "dark fruit" scents as well. Taste was first of dark sweet malt, at times seeming prune-ish, but more often a solid, grainy maltiness. Also tasted bitter chocolate and hops with a roasted edge. Refreshing in a dark/roasted way, kinda how a schwarzbier does, this beer had little touches of smoke and sour too. I'd describe it asbelgian sophistication with english stout body and character.

A thicker than normal mouthfeel for a dubbel, too, something I really like. This beer won me over a long time ago in bottle form, great to see that its excellent on tap and available. Have it at cellar temperature. Best dubbel I’ve ever had, pure opinion - many won’t agree. (Opinion may change once my trappists are done cellaring for two years)
