Tap

Pours a cloudy reddish brown, yellowish head dissipates slowly.

Smells of brett, cherries, apple and caramel.

Tart cherry and apple over caramel malt with some oak and bretty yeast.

Full body with light carbonation on the tongue.

Really nice bright dubbel, very enjoyable and worth trying.

330ml bottle. Those monks just seem to still be carrying on and on, and are well appropriate for the current festive season.

This beer pours a murky dark red brick amber hue, with three fingers of fizzy, loosely foamy, and mostly bubbly ecru head, which leaves a bit of rare speckled lace around the glass as it quickly abates.

It smells of bready caramel malt, yeast, muddled dark fruits akin to plum, prune, and faint figs, and earthy, musty hops. The taste is more bready caramel malt, a touch of dry toffee, mixed black fruit, singed brown sugar, a bit of musty red wine, and earthy, dead leafy hops.

The carbonation is a bit frizzante, but settles to a dull hum soon enough, the body an adequate medium weight, and a bit tacky in its smoothness, with a touch of nascent creaminess. It finishes on the sweet side, the malt, fruitiness, and booze all mixing and mingling amicably.

An agreeable enough dubbel, perhaps not as complex as their compadres around the region, but serviceable on this cold winter day. And were that I could have a round with those salubrious gents on the label.

not much head and darkbrown-redshining beer. Nose is worty and very sweetmalty, greenmalt like. Some good maltynes there as there is also some of that good smelling green stuff from poperinge. Getting better also after some sips and taste is sweet, full bodied, licorice and light to moderate bitterness. Joyfull brew that shows good carbonisation and smooth mouthfeel by nice caramellic taste. Still a bit greenmalty but more then just the average but you have to like it sweet and mellow.

Poured from bottle into its own Chalice at a cafe in a little town in Belgium...Pours a somewhat seethrough brown/molasses color. A bit of white head. Smells of sweet candi malts and drued fruits. Taste of very sweet candi, malts, dried fruit, maybe some chocolate...its nice but not amazing. Alcohol is present but not overwhelming. Overall, worth a try if the price is right, but ive had better dubbel's before.
