2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle enjoyed at home
Dark murky brown with a big tanned head, some big ugly bubbles in there but still looks quite gorgeous. Smells of overripe fruits, yeast and of course malt. Taste is quite malty with a good heavy supportive sweetness. Then something i don’t like. With the malt and sweetness i also can find a distinct unpleasent sharp malt bitterness that disturbs the picture quite much, also the balance is tipped off. Then ironicly the body continues with some fruity raisins and dark fruits. Body is full, oily feel and soft carbonation. Then the real finish comes with a nice hoppy medium bitterness. I find earthy and fruity hops there. Totally this is some kind of disappointment for me. And all is ruined by the disturbanse in the flavor. The rest is ok

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

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, 0.5 l, from Alko Arkadia, 20130328) The beer poured brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and almost white. Aroma had malts, hops and fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, hops, malts, caramell, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and bitter. Quite hoppy for a dubbel. A bit confusing but not hard to drink.

@Gyllenbock: en svag doft men en trevlig fyllig smak med toner av torkat frukt. Kunde varit mycket mer av allt. Torr eftersmak.
