3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Dark-Amber like color with a cloudy look to it. Head was nice white and full, that lasted for some time. Aroma was spicy, coriander, malt and maybe some hints of citrus, dry dark fruits. Flavor was medium sweet, with some light notes of bitterness. Body was medium. Very smooth and drinkable Dubbel I thought. Nice lasting aftertaste of spice, caramel and spicy.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle pours an amber red with a thin tight bubble of a head. A light sweet and sour cherry aroma with a little dough. Lots of carbonation, over carbonated in fact as the tiny bubbles bounce off my tongue it gets to the point where its hard to taste anything else. Through the fizz there’s a slight trat dark fruit and chocolate flavors. Finishes dry and you guessed it, fizzy.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy amber with an incredibly nice white fully lasting head.Aroma and taste of malts & spices. Dark fruits. Little sweetness. Little metallic the first sips due to the large foam. Fine lacings on the side of the glass. Pleasant lasting finish. Only minus is the little watery body/texture. Otherwise fine & pleasant.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Boasting a nutty, toffee-ish character with some chocolate notes thrown in for good measure. Medium-bodied with a rather watery finish and a cheap sweetness closing the show -- this is not well made. Did they drop refined pop sugar in this? It hits you in a bad way too. This is not how I remember Affligem. Back to the drawing board.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Off-white high and lasting head. Hazy amber body. Sweet and fruity aroma, peach and pears I think. Flavor very different from what is indicated by the aroma. Plums and hops although it is not a bitter beer. Interesting. Alcohol percentage well hidden.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber brown body with a light tan head. Initial slight burnt caramel aroma folowed up with dried fruits and spice. No noticeable caramel in the taste, more of the spices, a little bit thin although the flavour lasts the length.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy ruby colour, thick long lasting head. Aroma is yeasty spice. Promising. My first few sips had a nasty metallic aftertaste to them but gradually disappeared. Taste is quite full and not to sweet. I actually think this is a very decent dubbel (and at a good price too).
