Beertasting: Affligem Double

My 2nd Belgian beer in trial, its full name is: Abbaye/Abdij Affligem double, and it is brewed after the original recipe of 1074. The alcohol volume is 6,8% and it should be served at 8-10° Celsius.

It is dark and filling, foamy, yet far from Guinness Draught. It is a very sweet ale, fruity, but not too much sugar, just a sexy paint of cherry. The after-taste is similar to the Norwegian Aas Bayer, but the main characteristic resembles the Scottish The Best if you count out the cherry. Well-balanced and great!
