Lot of flavor and nice finish, but not all that great overall. I’d call it above average overall.

11.2 Ounce bottle. Pours a deep brown with a tons o’ head. Nose is skunky when first pour that dissipates to standard fruity with a bit of spice. Taste is a hint of citrus. Aftertaste is a bit off (almost like a latex glove), but I like this beer. +0.2 for the picture of the smug a**h*** on the bottle ;)

sebletitje (6969) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 16, 2012
Draft @ Delirum, Brussels. Cuivré avec un col épais crémeux beige. Arôme rappelle une sorte de purée de groseilles avec une pointe de réglisse. En bouche, le tout est léger, malté cara/pale avec une pointe d’aigreur fruitée, de baies noires de groseilles ou mûres. Palais reste pétillant, et je note sur la fin un profile de réglisse qui se précise lorsque la bière se réchauffe.

DYCSoccer17 (3384) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 1, 2012
750mL bottle purchased at Total Wine and More in Sacramento, CA. Opens with a thunderous pop. The aroma on this is nice enough, with some lightly sweet fruity esters, and some dusty esters as well.I can’t help but to pick up fruity raspberry aromas, which is A-OK in my book. Nicely aromatic. Mostly transparent, very fizzy cola-colored body with a cola-colored head that is medium and has decent retention. Quite a fizzy head, though. Starts fruity, and a bit overly carbonated. I detect that same raspberry that I get in the aroma, although it is very fleeting here in flavor. The beer then becomes a little caramelly, nutty, and somewhat toasted and sweet again. It dries out towards the end, and finishes with a bit of a woodiness. I think this is a nice beer. I just wish the carbonation was turned down, and it would be a 4+ beer.

Pours dark brown with big white head. Toasty wheat and toffee with a bit of sweetness and yeast in he flavor. Aroma is grassy hay and wild barn sort of yeastiness. A little roastiness on the finish. Solid drink.

teddybeer (2386) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 27, 2012
33cl bottle. Brown colouyred with a good and easy formation of tan head. Aroma is caramelish and slightly spicy. Flavour is dominating by brown sugar, caramel, sweet at the beginning and a final maintained the caramel taste with an average duration. Carbonation is medium. Body is medium to high. Texture is creamy.

Sigmund (5345) - Tau, NORWAY - JAN 10, 2012
330 ml stubby bottle, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo. ABV is 8.5%. Brown colour, huge beige head. High (too high) level of carbonation, even in the mouth. Fairly strong aroma, very much a "typical Belgian dubbel": notes of brown malts, caramel, brown kandij sugar and mild spices. The flavour has the same elements as the aroma, but is not too sweet. The hops are very moderate, I’d like some more. Still a decent and drinkable beer as it is.
