Pleasant fruity, bready aromas initially waft up from this reddish-brown offering. Sweet malts and hints of yeast and are there and then hints of spice too. Not a very powerful finish - somewhat chewy couthfell just fades away slightly sweetly.

Nice belgian hazy dark amber redish beer. Little fruity and sweet in aroma. Comes with a little bitter and nutty aftertaste. This one is good but far from my best Belgian.

6 Jun 2005 - (B&B Enich Anders) - Good sweet malt and hop aroma. Slight cloudiness, brown-red colour, with great head and good lacing. Light malt & hop flavour, easy to drink but not enough malt or distinctive taste for me. Light easy drinking bitter finish, abit thin, but still good and some lingering malt and hops. I’m a little indecisive about this one.

Pours hazy reddish brown with a thick tan head. Phenolic aroma of dark bread, apples, figs, chocolate, and alcohol. Taste is slightly metallic and spicy with a toasted earthiness and a hint of cherry. Finish is slightly sweet, moderately bitter, and moderately acidic. Body is light to medium, and has dense carbonation with a soft mouthfeel. Some sips I feel satisfied, and others I’m left wishing for more of something. Not bad, but nothing special. At $4 for 750ml I can’t complain too much.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - AUG 22, 2005
Bottled. Malty and spicy aroma.Herbal, spicy malt flavour. Medium sweet. The herbal and spicy flavours (maybe koriander?) of this beer are highly unwelcome in a dubbel for my liking.

Hazy brown coloured with a lasting off white head. Sweet aroma with notes of caramel and spices. Sweet spicy flavour with notes of caramel and dried fruits.

Bottled. Dark brown colour. Metallic, brown sugar nose with small hints of fig. Sweet, fruity flavour with notes of plum & raisin. Rather full bodied.

This was a really nice dubbel. I was pretty impressed with its nice malty taste and clean finish.

Bouteille datant d’environ 3-5 ans. Couleur brune aux reflets cuivrés. Arômes témoignant que les belles années de ce liquide sont choses du passé. Passablement oxydé, carton et cuir sous une touche de vieux bois, cave humide. L’alcool est considérablement présent pour le taux indiqué. En bouche, l’oxydation se manifeste davantage et rappelle les vieilles cennes noires, laissant ensuite paraître le malt caramel ainsi qu’une bonne touche de torréfaction nous conduisant jusqu’à une finale légèrement fumée, boisée. Corps d’épaisseur moyenne, texture se dirigeant vers l’aquosité, carbonatation toujours active. Une expérience totalement différente de celle d’une version jeune en format 341ml sans liège. Les beaux jours sont définitivement derrière…Merci Rastacouere!

750mL, fairly aged. Applesauce meets meaty dark malts in the nose. Body is brown to ruby, offering a fading off-white head that never laces. The yeastiness never steals the show from the interesting mostly malty flavor range, but the integration certainly leaves room for perfection. Anise-like chocolate bars flirt with dryish oxidized papery and penny notes. Bready nature works adequately with the berry-ish fruitiness. ALcohol warmth a bit more present than you’d anticipate at this strenght. Surprisingly high carbonation, would be quite engaging if it were a bit rounder.
