Great aroma and foam but the taste is not that satisfying it is special.Nice bottle and colour and can be good if combined with meat

Pours enormous beige head which then quickly disappears. Nice aroma of caramel. Dark color which I like. It is not too heavy so you can drink several if you like. I like this type of beer so simply no question. Very nice.

Batavi (85) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 22, 2015
Uitgeschonken in Chimay bokaal, prachtig helder, donker amberkleurig bier, met beige volle schuimkraag die wel terugvalt, maar aanwezig blijft als een dunne schuimkraag met schuimresten tegen de wand van het glas. Mooie carbonatie met rijen koolzuurbelletjes in het glas. Geur van geroosterde mout en Belgische gist. De smaak is zoet en fruitig met tonen van rozijnen, karamel, koekjes, chocolade en milde specerijen als steranijs en kaneel. De afdronk is medium lang met een elegante zacht bittere hoptoets. Een heel verfijnde dubbel deze Affligem, commercieel bier, onderdeel van Heineken, maar kan qua smaak mee met de beste Trappist dubbel bieren. Ook de vernieuwde verpakking is chique met het logo en anno 1074 verwerkt in de fles. Fijne mooi gebalanceerde dubbel met een aangenaam aroma en elegant smaakpallet.

Hermod (3905) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2015
33cl bottle @home. Poured mahogany color, thick, off white head. Candy sugar, plum marmalade in aroma, some spicyness. Not too sweet though, I like the aroma in this dubbel. Not a big fan of this style, but this beer seems to suit me better. Flavor has sweetness, coriander, aniseed kinda spicyness and then that plum marmalade again. Finishes sweet, almost full bodied. Lingering spicy sweetness. Thumbs up, I like this one. Somewhat nutty aftertaste as well that comes out later.

Purchased in Austria and consumed in Serbia, bottle. Thank you Lela and Milos. Pours ruby bright with a huge ivory foamy cap. The appearance is promising. Nose: dry fruit, candy sugar, pancakes syrup. Ok. Mouth: medium high carbonation, milder than the nose and not that complex. Better that average tough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cor caramelo escuro. Espuma bonita mas dura pouco. Super bem balanceada, álcool presente na medida. Paladar de banana, canela, especiarias. Frutada sem ser doce. Excelente!
