3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
BOTTLE 30 (yes, thirty) CL. Hazy red-brown, beige head. Rich dried fruit aroma - almost too good to be true (for a Heineken), as well as spicy and roasty notes. The taste is similar, dried fruit sweetness and crystal malts. The finish is spicy hoppy and lightly roasty. The body is a bit thin in the middle, but otherwise good and gets too sticky in the finish. Quite solid for a macro.

Better tasting than the blonde one. Hints of caramel and a bit more hoppie. It came in a great glass, big glass for pouring and small glass for left over aka soul of beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
30cl bottle from B&M Reading, with a stated ABV of 6.8%. A muddy chestnut coloured pour with a billowing caramel coloured head; fruity aroma with some Belgian yeast; sour cherry taste with a smooth malty body, and a good balance of demerara sugar and sour fruit; and a fresh, crisp finish. The fruity notes make this a refreshing improvement on most Belgian Dubbels.
