What the label says:
The dark reddish Dubbel is brewed within the walls of a Trappist abbey on a small scale under the supervision of the monks. The income is used for their daily life and to maintain the Abbey. A Major share of the profits is donated to charities . This living beer ferments again in the bottle. Store the bottle in an upright position. Serve at 8 to 14 degrees Celsius, carefully pouring from the bottle to a glass and leaving the yeast behind in the bottom of the bottle. You may wish to taste the yeast separately.
What the Beerdrinker says:
This is a very dark beer, with a very foamy coffee-milk coloured head. It has a really yeasty nose with aromas of cherries and cheese. The initial taste is rum like with hints of raisins and fudge. If drunk quickly it is similar to sweet tea. It has a distinct sherry taste.
