From Optimus Beer. In Roquetas de Mar. Afte dinner. In shaker glass. Perfect, full of tasty dark fruits and with a good body. I cant think in a way of improving it

Pours bright dark brown, decent head.

Weird aroma - flat cola, carbonic acid, sick. Bit of unwelcome sulphur. Not good.

Taste is flat cola, dandelion and burdock, some tartness and dryness. better than the aroma. No hop aroma, flavour, tiny bit of bitterness. This has three years on the BBD, god knows what it will be like then

High carbonation, thin/med body.

Avoid.

Edit: Not heeding my own advice I had another one of these as I'd bought a 4 pack - this time with food it was a lot more enjoyable. But I wasn't rating it

Dark brown, ruby red reflections. Two-finger tan head. Pretty thick lacing. Looks great.

Smells of caramel, bread, cloves, banana. Coffee. Not too aggressively sweet like a lot of belgians are.

Tastes bready, kinda roasty. A bit fruity too (apple and banana). Like the smell, the light (for the style) sweetness is a surprise, to be sure, but a welcome one. Distinct bitterness too, which probably helps reduce the sweet factor. Slightly peppery and spicy.

Well carbonated, medium body. Kinda prickly actually.

Very nice, me likey. Not a style I'm usually overly fond of, but this is really great.

Pour the color of a cola with a large & long lasting head. Lovely sweet aroma, caramel & roasted grain. Flavor is quite mild, very slightly sweet, fruity. Could be taken up a notch, I think. Still, it is very good.

I saw this beer for sale at a local liquor store, and picked up a couple of bottles. (one to enjoy, and one to review) This is called Abbey Brown Ale, but they also call it a Pater beer. Beer has the same alcohol content as their tripel, which was surprising to me.

Smell is a faint smell of apples mostly. Taste consists of malt, apple, brown sugar, and bread. Feel is very smooth, medium carbonation, and a somewhat light feel. There is little aftertaste, maybe a malty aftertaste, but very pleasant-- and beer is not dry at all, without any alcohol detected. Beer is tasty and refreshing.

I actually enjoyed this beer, and found it to be better than their Tripel offering, much to my surprise. I enjoy Tripel beers in general, but this is considered a Dubbel-- and the first I have had of the Dubbel-- looks like I will seek out more beers of this kind. Now I just wish they sold this in more places around where I live, but at least I do know where to find it!
