Very dark brown with some reddish highlights and a thick and very persistent tan head. The smell is some plum, fig and cherry and the taste follows with some tartness. Rich and creamy mouthfeel with just a hint of alcohol in the finish. Overall and excellent beer that I will have again.

Pours a creamy off-white head that likes to stick around for quite awhile. The beer itself is dark, dark brown (almost black) with garnet highlights.

The nose has cherries, caramel, cloves, bannana, some otehr spicey notes I can't name.

Taste is cherries, the slightest hint of cloves and caramel. Starts sweet, but not too sweet. The alcohol is present on the palat, but does not come on too strong. Overall a very balanced flavor. Finishes dry with a slight mineral bite.

The mouthfeel is smooth and just a bit chewy. The carbonation keeps the mouthfeel smooth. A slight warmth from the alcohol.

Overall, this is a solid Dubbel and a very tasty beer. I'd love to have some good bread with this brew. Hard to say much more about an Abbey bear. Getting it in the goblet makes the drinking experience even better.

Another excellent Belgian. Hard to differentiate between then all. But this was excellent. Let it warm up a bit first though.

Poured from bottle into a St. Bernardus chalice. Beer is very picturesque, a medium brown with a 1/2" off white head.
Smell is malty and yeasty. Taste is a mix of pears, apricots, apples, plums and spices. Mouthful is well carbonated, finishes with a slight fruity but bitter aftertaste.

Overall beer is complex, contains several different fruits, and is a good beer. This is a hard to find beer and I am glad to finally try it.

Pours a clear medium brown that is ruby brown when held to light. A nice but thin effervescence rises. A few particulates are evident. The pour produces a foamy 3+ finger, fluffy, tightly bubbled, beige, moderately lasting head that leaves little lace. Aroma is toasted brown bread, dark caramel malt, brown sugar, dark fruits & Belgian funk. Taste is roast dark malt. Belgian yeatiness & light funk with dark fruity notes swimming in brown sugar/molasses. Aftertaste is a lightly bitter roast & dark fruit. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation, young crawling & lively, smooth with a lasting astringency.

Look: Gorgeous dark brown with a huge white head that foams up and stays there.

Smell: Spicy and fruity malt. A hint of sweetness, but very sharp otherwise.

Taste: Molasses is strong. Bits of dried fruit in the background. Low bitterness without any hop flavor.

Mouthfeel: Decently thick and slightly carbonated.

Overall: Very, very different. Almost doesn't taste like a beer, but in a good way.
