ardeo (86) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - MAR 13, 2016
Bottle 33. Belle couleur brun/orange. Nez subtil : caramel, prune ... Bouche agréable où l’alcool est bien caché et l’amertume peu présente. Pas la meilleure mais bonne trappiste à mon goût !

Kauge (1247) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 22, 2016
Bottle from Koht in Tallinn. BB 21.05.2016. Pours reddish brown with a big soapy light beige head, inconsistent retention and strong lace. Aroma: intense estery fruits, toasty malts, marmalade and figs-prunes, hint of anise, soft caramel candies. Tastes sweet, with flavours of caramel, figs and prunes, or at least something along those lines. Very soft on the palate with almost no carbonation, dryish (grainy? metallic even?) slightly bitter finish. Again, it might be too old already, will try and get me a more fresh bottle in the furure.

tbonde (289) - DENMARK - FEB 1, 2016
33 cl bottle@home in footed glass@approx 9 degrees C. Pours reddish brown with off-white head with good retention and lacing. Surprisingly faint aroma is compensated by the very well balanced taste, carbonation and mouthfeel. A lot of malt, a lot of dried fruits and a little spice and yeast adds up to a very well balanced Bruin with the fruitcake assosiations strong without becoming owerpowering. The alcohol is kept very well in check and only manifests itself slightly in the complex, malty, hoppy, fruity aftertaste. Very good Bruin suitable for a winters day in my taste.

mandaritto (161) - LATVIA - JAN 15, 2016
Easy drinkable, although high carbonisation. Not so bad at all.. Kind a same wet dog aftertaste same as Achel Blonde. But I kind I liked hints of caramels and sparkling wine. Decent brew.

Vells (1322) - Rīga, Latvija, LATVIA - JAN 15, 2016
Bit overcarbonated, simple, at some point even watery, tho quite nice dubbelish. Malty background, some caramel, light dried fruits, some earthy hops, light yeast. Light sweetness all the way with ultra light bitterness in finish. Decent

De couleur brune avec des reflets rugby elle n'est pas trop troubleet la mousse tient correctement Au nez Des maltées serré aller mais aussi une certaine amertume avec peut-être des notes porté sur le fruit sec Embouche on va trouver de fruits secs comme la noisette ou la noix mais aussi de café C'est une très bonne bière

Bottle at le coq. Nostalgia! Lovely Dubbel. Rich fruitiness, ovaltine maltiness, dry, cocoa, quite initial hit of bitterness too though. Finish is caramel and smooth. Forgot how great this is.

Cloudy dark red to brown color, huge off-white head. Blank aroma, some sugar. Mild taste of sugar, grapes, raisins, dark fruit. Pretty sweet. Medium body, average carbonation. Grainy sweet finish. Overall, nice body, drinkable but too damn sweet. //bottle at Craft Room
