Commercial Description

a dark, reddish-brown Trappist beer with a secondary fermentation in the bottle. The creamy head has the fragrance of special malt and leaves an attractive lace pattern in the glass. The flavour is rich and complex, herby and fruity with a fresh-bitter finish. It is a balanced quality beer with a soft feel in the mouth and a long, dry aftertaste.

    The aroma caught me the second I popped the cap. Rich, malty, inviting. Surprisingly carbonation leading into a creamy texture. Butterscotch, bread, and a little bit of yeasty funk. Spicy hops linger in a slightly bitter finish.

    Outstanding. Go get it!

    [Best served in a Trappist glass]

    Poured a dark murky brown with a tan fizzy head that was fully diminishing and had poor lacing. The aroma was heavy of roasted malts and molasses, light resin hops and a moderate scent of a horse blanket yeast. It tasted slightly malty and extremely bitter at first and ended with a bitter acidic flavor that layed in the back of your throat. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a fizzy carbonation. Overall an OK brew, but nothing special.

    This is a wonderful dubbel that pours dark chocolate brown. The body is dark and hazy. The head is off white thick and bubbly, that makes for good lacing. Aromatic roasted malts and classic Belgian yeast fills the nose. Also there were light unripe or green banana and caramel notes. It tastes as good as it smells, malty and sweet, with hops being very low key. Molasses and malts, banana and caramel blend together to round out this smooth and silky ale. The body is full with soft carbonation and finishes dry, slightly bitter.
