3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
Super nice fruity aroma, but a good grainy maltiness. Smooth sweet palate, and a soft sweetness too. Very rich roast, but massive graininess. Slips down excellently. Just like that alien dildo. Do not remember a grainier beer, with such strawy grassy bitterness.

Deep brown/red pour, small tan head. Spicy aroma of nuts, raisins, dark fruits, caramel and some licorice. Taste is heavy sweet and low on bitterness.

Det här var en ytterst angenäm upplevelse med en balans som hade tillfredställt vem som helst. Smaken bar maltiga, jästiga ochh brödiga inslag till en stabil kropp.

Brun kropp med vitt skum som avtar relativt snabbt. Viss sötma i aroman, lite bördig. Välbalanserad.

Bottle - 500ml. Hazy copper body with a thin off-white creamy head. Nice malty/hoppy aroma with grainy hints. Alcohol is very well hidden. Taste carries geainy, herbal, and brown sugar notes. Ends with a decent bitter/grainy finish. Enjoyable, but not sure this corresponds to a Dubbel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Poued dark brown with big light tan head. Lots of carbonation. Nose of caramel malts with spices, with orange zest, and cardamon. Cinnamon too. Medium body . Smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is spicy and complex but it hangs together well. Some fruit and there is chocolate in the finish, and in fact lots of it. Overall a very tasty beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. I rolled this before opening and there was plenty of sediment on the bottom of the bottle. An aroma of spices that is very nice. Caramel, yeast, fruit. It is kind of a dunkel but with spices. I taste caramel, raisins, orange zest, cardamon, cinnamon, yeast. Sweetness is fairly big and alcohol is a bit obtrusive. As the beer warmed it became more sour and chemical tasting. That was unfortunate after a strong start. Near the finish the feel became powdery and chocolate was tasted. This was complex and interesting and it kept bringing different flavors with temperature changes.

0.5 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Slightly hazy reddish brown color. Sweet caramel aroma with raisins. Sweet caramelly, nutty, toasty, raisins and slightly fruity taste with some peppery spiciness and hint of umami type of yeastiness. Medium to full body, rounded palate. Quite drinkable dubbel, there is some yeastiness which I’m not so fond of.
