Amber colour, clear. Medium head, weak retention. Smells sweet, caramel. Taste: very sweet caramel and malts. Then, strong carbonation ending in a short lived very mild bitter and sweet aftertaste. Little character or balance. Not impressive.

Dejlig øl, med god smag. Tilpas med sødme. Særdeles frisk. Flot farve og skum.

6.8% bottle from B&M, Team Valley, Gateshead. Hazy dark amber-brown in colour with sweet cherry, currant and slight chocolate flavours followed by a slight spiced, warming blackcurrant finish. Not bad.

Den smager som en blond skal. Gode søde noter og en masse smag af malten. Næsten helt ovre i en pilsner i malten.

Vells (1241) - Rīga, Latvija, LATVIA - JAN 26, 2016
Decent dubbel, but wasnt impressed. Lovely dark malts in background, some toast, bit dried fruits, light spicy yeast. Light sweet with light bitterness, bit overcarbonated. Drinkable, but bothing to remember.

AtronSeige (1085) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - JAN 15, 2016
Aroma: Medium rich, malty, molasses, plums, banana bread. Appearance: Brilliant copper body. Medium tan head, fair retention. Flavour: Medium malty, bready, molasses. Medium-light alcohol, floral, rose. Light bitterness. Medium-dry finish with lingering light molasses/licorice. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-high carbonation. Light warming. Overall: A great beer, but missing the head retention and the malt complexity. 300 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre! 26B. Belgian Dubbel

Antonio369 (46) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 11, 2016
30cl bottle, served in Trappist chalice. Poured a hazy chestnut brown with a one finger tan head. Swirled the bottle a few times around before pouring the last 10% out of the bottle to get all of the yeast out for maximum flavour. Aromas of caramel, flowers, hazelnuts, cinnamon. Tastes of caramel, cloves, orange, banana, raisins. Medium body with a pretty creamy, fruity, bitter and spicy finish. Overall a fruity and a bit too spicy dubbel. I expected more from this brew. Perhaps swirling the bottle around for that last bit of yeast in the bottle wasn’t that good an idea...

Zlotta (823) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 8, 2016
0.3 l bottle from local AH, bottled in April 2015. Clear, reddish amber with a medium large, foamy, stable, tan head. Sweetish-malty, slightly spicy aroma of treacle, brown sugar, toffee, milk chocolate and spices (coriander?). Sweet, malty and spicy taste of milk chocolate, brown sugar, toffee and spices, followed by a medium long, medium bitter, yeasty-spicy finish. Medium body, creamy to sticky mouthfeel, average carbonation. Okay, but way too sweet and spicy for me. Not that easy to drink.
