Bottle from LCBO pours misty reddish brown with an off white creamy stable heas and dense lacing. Aroma: raisin’s, brown sugar, spice, hint of banana. Flavour; continues complexity of aroma - bidy medium.

4.22/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

LOOKS: A dark, opaque, mahogany, with a huge, tan head that lasts and leaves a sticky lacing down the glass.
AROMA: Fruity, pear, dried apricot, some green apple, and a slight alcohol hit.
TASTE: No alcohol in the flavor, but everything from the nose, but, balanced/not overly sweet.
FEEL: Full carbonation, very dry, medium body.
OVERALL: Very nice beer. Not something I'd drink all the time, but, I'd always have a bottle of any St. Bernardus brew in the cellar, at any time.

Poured from 11.2oz bottle into Chimay goblet.

L - Medium brown pour with slight red notes, a finger of sandy foam.

S - Brown sugar, brown bread, toasted grain. Not a lot of nose but should develop as it warms.

T - Whole grain bread, not super sweet, but very grainy.

F - Creamy carbonation, dry finish.

Subdued table beer. All the notes are there, but well balanced for drinkability.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 3.5

L: Hazy dark amber color, huge four finger beige head, messy lacing, loads of carbonation.

S: Typical Belgian yeast, alcohol.

T: Typical Belgian taste. But below average. Not even close to a Leffe, for example.

F: Watery. Like very watery. Goes down like...water.

O: Not sure why most give a high score for this beer but...nah.

Chestnut with steady tan film. 4
Cinnamon + brown sugar apple. 4
Big dark toffee, hazelnuts, chicory, mashed overripe pears, and nutmeg end. 4.25
Tingly linger.
Almost medium, chewy, dead smooth. 4.25

Execution like a razor. Nut and sweet more than fruit, so off centre for a dubbel. But I’d session the life out of this. 4.25

this was poured into a chalice. The appearance was a ruddy dark brown color with a finger’s worth of white to off white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. Glossy filmy lacing clung and then slid into the glass nicely. The aroma starts off with sweet iced apples, sly Belgian spices of allspice, ginger, and sweet cake to bready raison-like fruitiness. Comes together really damn good! The flavor takes all of the previously mentioned flavors to meld in a nice refined sweet to spicy sort of way. Normal Belgian quickening throatiness doesn’t harden on my throat in the aftertaste or finish like a fair amount of other Americanized- Belgian Dubbels. On the palate, this one sits about a light to medium in body with a great sessionability about it. Carbonation rides light. ABV barely feels there. Overall, love it for what it is, and would love to come back to this.
