Pours with a two-finger, thick khaki head that stays and leaves a good lace. Deep ruby/brown color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is dark fruit, flavor is dark fruit, sweet malt and smooth. Higher ABV is hidden, decent abbey dubbel. $10.80 for a 25oz (not a 750ml) bottle, from Tully's Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

Deep, dark brown, strong ale (8%) beer topped with a thick, creamy lace that keeps its volume accompanied with a dried fruit smell. Bitteness is mild balanced nicely with a sweet feel with hints of caramel and malt overtones with a controlled acidic finish. Really good beer I enjoyed even though it's -15c outside!

From the corked, caged 750 ml. bottle. Sampled on August 21, 2014.

A darker brown colored pour leads up to a lingering tan or beige head that is silky and soft.

There are red grapes on that nose. Along with Belgian toasted biscuit, yeast, candied sugar, and some light spice.

Medium or better body.

The flavor echoes the aroma with a definite fruity character ala grapes, orange, or cherry. But other than that I get the typical Belgian toasted biscuit and malt characters I would expect from a Dubbel, with a tad more punch that makes me think Quad. Some light hop finale. Enjoyable.

From a 750 ml bottle into a chalice

Pours a nice dark brown/ruby with a low one finger head that gives way to some nice swirls and mists of foam.

The smell is dark fruits and esters with some yeast coming forward.

The taste follows the smell...dark fruits and yeasty. Molasses comes through a little.

The carbonation is medium and the body is full.

Overall, I am quite impressed with this beer. I'm more of a tripel and quad fan, but this is a nice beer. I love finding beers like this. I had no expectations and I am finishing my beer a happy man. A good beer at a very good price point.

Bottle shared by Steve, 750ml bottle into a tulip.

Dark brown, with mahogany hues. Thin mocha head with decent retention and lacing. Spicy nose, clove, grape, slight anise, light brown sugar and molasses. Taste has more grape, spice, brown sugar, dark fruits. Medium full feel, with a gentle medium carbonation. A very well done dubbel, I'd revisit this in an instant.

Brown with a red hue under light. Nice big fizzy head and lots of carbonation. Smell of caramel, dark fruits and malts. Taste similar to smell, really sweet. Nice feel in the mouth, really not bad.

750ml bottle served in a Belgian snifter.

Pours clear, dark chestnut brown, with a decent head that has good retention. and leaves very good lacing.

Aroma: pleasing, with dried fruits and faint spices.

Flavor: lightly sweet - excellent bitter-sweet balance. Faint hints of orange peel, chocolate and vanilla.

Feel: medium body and medium, soft carbonation.

O: a very good (Canadian) Belgian dubbel at a nice (U.S.) price.

Poured into a Mons tulip glass, cold.
Very dark opaque beer with a 2 finger beige head that subsides almost instantly.
From 3 feet away I smell pineapple!
Tastes of pineapple, sweet malt, a hint of molasses. Some chocolate malt and some acidity. Also some noble hops.
Of the four beers in the mixed pack this is the most complex. The 8 % abv is completely hidden. As the beer warms up the taste seems to expand. The feel is well balanced between the smoothness of the carbonation and the various flavors.
Overall a beer well worth the purchase. Also available in a 750 ml sharable size!
I think the water from the local esker is one reason for the great quality of this brewer's beer.

Poured into a snifter at the Prytania Park Hotel, New Orleans

A: Caramel brown with a nice tan one-finger head that lasted. Frothy lacing.

S: Belgian yeast dominates, followed by candied sugar, dark fruits (dates, raisins, figs) and chocolate.

T: Follows nose to a T. Smooth, sweet, sensual. Tangy. A yeasty aftertaste.

M: Medium with medium, frothy carbonation.

O: Glad I finally found this Canadian brew. A great abbey ale that should be shared.

750ml corked bottled into a wicked weed snifter.

Pours a dark brownish red color with a very big foamy white head that quickly dissipates. The smell is very sweet...candied sugar. The tasty is bready...candy sugar again...very yeasty. extremely sweet. Not offensive though. Solid flavor. medium bodied with medium-high carbonation.

overall i dig it. nothing out of this world but just solid. recommended.
