Decent Dubbel but needed a little more umph. Nice standard bready and malty aroma that goes with the style. Maybe some added spice. The color was a bread-crust brown with a small head that quickly dissipated. Malt backbone that was not heavy. A little sharp aftertaste but not distasteful. No recognizable hops presence.

heavy (2740) - Split, CROATIA - AUG 23, 2016
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.

SkillsFactory (522) - ITALY - AUG 19, 2016
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.

Rifaldo (37) - Torello, SPAIN - AUG 19, 2016
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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

0.33l bottle. Copper color with beige head. Aroma is caramel, fruity, toasted malt, raisins and candy sugar. Taste is sweet with caramel and fruity notes. Some bitterness in the finish. Medium to full body.

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

Mooie dubbel met een bijzondere afdronk. Vrij zoet met een fruitige smaak.
