3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy, deep amber body with medium sized, slightly off-white head. Nose is malty and slightly boozy, lots of caramel and licorice, very grassy.
Medium body with high and lively carbonation. Smooth on the tongue. Taste combines the sweetness of malts with bitternes of alcohol, nicely balanced. Aroma of malts, yeast, caramel, syrup, liquor, toffee. Herbal and floral, very nice. Finish is long and slightly boozy.
Overall, lovely brew.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A 0.33 l bottle that poured a clear copper body with a medium sized head. Caramel, some barley and fruity aroma. Flavor was sweet, barley notes grown into wet stale hay, with dogfood and some caramel to round it up. Not the best around, although not so ugly as it might sound now. Not spicy at all. Medium bodied with altbier-ish but also sweet caramel finish. Not really a good dubbel, surprised to see its high score here.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tonaca di frate chiara, opalescente con riflessi ambrati, schiuma beige di media persistenza.
Aroma di banana matura e di caffè torrefatto.
Al palato fedele al naso con un finale amaricante tostato e lievemente erbaceo accompagnato da leggere note di uva passa.
Corpo tra il medio ed il medio-pieno, mediamente carbonata, texture acquosa.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Botella. Fruits caramalitzats al nas, de color vermellós i espuma densa. En boca trobem regalèsia i espècies, amargor maltosa al paladar. Típica double belga, menys maltosa i de color no tan torrat

Courtesy of heavy, shared with him & others. 0.3l bottle, brewed at Alken Maes. Seems our Heineken subsidiary expanded their range a little. Clear coppery red body, slightly fizzy, with a tiny off white head. Nice, very fruity sweet caramelly malty aroma, candyish yet fresh, dried apricot maybe. Strange, but in a good way. Dry, grainy taste, caramel, light Speculaas-like spice notes. Ok, definitely a good beer, one of the best fake craft macro beers around.

33cl bottle. Not my favorite double, I didn’t like the aftertaste. I prefer a Grimbergen Double to this one.
