The color is a beautiful reddish brown, fairly similar to many of this kind. Not a lot of head or lacing which I don't care about personally. Smell is mostly yeast with some prune and brown sugar, but in general not very odoriferous.

I like the taste the best. It has a satisfying baked good with cinnamon and brown sugar taste. Deep but not too syrupy. A bit spicy.

The feel is a bit bland. Reminds me of a flat cola. Some more carbonation would add to it in my opinion.

Overall this is a very nice, approachable abbey dubbel - good for new triers of the style and those not trying to spend a lot. A 6 pack (not 4), came to only $9 which gives a boost to the overall rating. I would buy again.

Bottle dated best by 5-5-16 into pint glass. Pours a clear amber-brown with an eggshell-white head. Initial impression is a little malt sweetness, with a hint of dark fruit. Flavor improves slightly as it warms, but still not a highly flavorful brew. Mouthfeel is on the light side of medium; carbonation is on the heavy side of medium. Neutral, slightly bitter finish.
Perhaps this is too subtle for my jaded American tastes, but it doesn't light up much on my scoreboard.

Pours an auburn brown with a slight head. Smells of malt and plums. The taste starts of on the sweet side but gives way to an almost acidic bite that had me confused. Turns out it was the alcohol unmasked and isolated. Could have been better presentation. Overall, an average Dubbel.

Good to be venturesome.
I'd like to think my taste buds are open-minded enough to allow interpretation of the Belgian masters. But, this ale defies me getting close to it... and I wish I could explain why.
Maybe I'm used to bigger doses of brown sugar. Maybe a small tweak gives me a "That's it."
I should not intellectualize the subtlety of taste.

Listed in the "1001".

Bottle to tulip glass, clear brown color, medium off white head. Aroma is fig, cranberry, clove, apple, brandy. Very nice warming smells. Taste is yeasty, wangy, but tasty. Also light winter Spices and ash. Feel is a bit flat. Side by side with ff grand cru.

Dark copper to amber in color with a fingernail of tan covering the majority of the middle of the glass. Aroma is of sweet moderately dark malt and caramel. The flavor closely mimics the aroma and is sweet dark malt and caramel. I also detect hazelnuts and raisins. The mouth is moderately chewy lightly warm with alcohol.

Dark ruby with white head. Nose of fruits, nuts and malt. Tastes of dark fruits, banana and some sweet malt. Low on bitterness, if any at all. Light body.
