2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Vacation 2013 @ Virton, Belgium. 33 cl. bottle @ the bungalow, bought @ the local Delhaize supermarket.
Ruby red brown with an offwhite head. Sweet caramel and lightly roasted malts. Lively carbonation and a bit too sweet aftertaste,

Just to sort out some beers I have had, but didn’t rate. 33CL bottle at home, Brown beer, nothing special but drinkable.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
33 cl. bottle sampled @ Kraddel does 1K tasting. Procured by Kraddel. Cheers. Pours a brown amber with little tanned head. Smells like cheap chocolate syrup, cheapest foreign chocolate available, sugar, candy and some malts. Taste is oddly metallic, lots of copper and metallic notes mixed with very cheap chocolate syrup, bitter herbs, sugar, nuts and odd dark fruits. Feels ridiculously tampered with. Body is that of watery syrup. This feels like it should be part of the Floris line-up and I do not mean that in a good way. Drinkable I suppose.

Rubis foncé, pétillance moyenne, col très fin. Malts rôtis, caramel, notes fruitées, fin sèche et amère. Une brune banale...

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Clear dark brown colour with low steady head and medium to thin body. Nose of German Hefeweizen. Taste of pure Dunkelweizen, just nothing what I’d had expected....Dull yeast, bananas, nuts and malt. Didn’t enjoy it at all for it being listed as Abbey Dubbel.

Bottle bought in a 4pack in Belgium. Typical dubbel one with missing some aromas. Bit dull with some nice hops in the start. Classic one with nothing special in.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
dark brown colour with no head (looks like cola) slightly sweet (possibly boiled fruit sweets) aroma, sweet caramel but slightly bitter taste. Not as bad as it sounds.

I’m a big fan of abbey dubbels, so I’m doubly disappointed in this beer. It doesn’t live up to expectations.
