Very dark, coffee color - full rich body - staying head - effervescent nose - soft velvet feeling in the mouth - luscious. Malt character with a hoppy aftertouch. Monks used to fast on this type of beer for 40 days! No food, only beer.

Poured a dark amber brown colour with a fluffy white head that left thin lacing. Aroma of brown sugar and caramel malts and dark fruits. Flavor of caramel, plums/ raisins, and brown sugar. Medium bodied with present carbonation. Bittersweet somewhat astringent mouthfeel leading to a dry finish.

Gangstergafje (70) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2015
Beautiful dark reddish brown color. The beer pours a slightly brown soft foam. The smell had a slight touch of metal. The beer has a little touch of caramel, which is nice. The beer has some sweetness and bitterness, which is perfectly in balance. The taste is quite simple, but not bad.

Tognetta (182) - Campinas, BRAZIL - MAR 30, 2015
Marrom bem escuro, espuma também marrom, cremosa, de média duração. Aroma licoroso, bastante doce, coco, um pouco de chocolate. Paladar adocicado leve, corpo leve/médio mas que deixa uma leve sensação de aguado depois de alguns goles, carbonação flat. Aftertaste trouxe um pouco do amargor, café e coco novamente, de média duração. Gostei, mas seria ainda melhor se fosse mais encorpada.

NOTA DE CATA: - Aspecto: Oscuro color marrón rojizo con un brillo muy particular con mucha espuma. - Aroma: Olor dulce a frutas como el arándano negro y la ciruela tiene un curioso olor propio de todas las buenas cervezas de ocho grados alcohólicos o más. - Cuerpo/sabor: Se presenta dulce con ciruelas y pasas de arándanos pasa a un sabor ligeramente amargo y nuevamente deja un sabor de boca dulce. TIPO DE FERMENTACIÓN: Alta. ABV: 8% Vol.

CaptainTilven (39) - FRANCE - MAR 7, 2015
Brown colour with red shades, cloudy; cream coloured foam, rather fine, bubbles of different sizes. Smell and taste of coffee, light sourness wich contributes to general balance. Dried apricots and prunes. Very good balance between sweetness and bitterness and dryness; body and fineness.

Fresh-ish As Bornem and again as alias Uilenspiegelbier, 33cl bb 2004 shared@ BBF ’15 Vintage Tasting ZO, merci. - Overwhelming Van Steenberge candi sugars and phenol profile of the fresh Bornem version thins out over time into: aspartame and dusty sugars, sour peach marmelade, with a leathery rather than velvet touch. Still more enjoyable aged...

Kleurplaatje (79) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2015
Pours dark amber/brownish with a stable off-white head. Good lacing. Fairly well dubbel aroma. Yeasty, malty and mildly spicy. Something tarty as well. Also a bit alcoholic, which disturbs me a bit. Taste is mildly sweet. Clear notes of the caramel, some sugar, something roasty and little notion of the spices. However, it got overwhelmed by acidic and metallic notes afterwards. It looks like if the alcohol destroyed a lot of the taste. After a few sips, the alcohol gave everything a bit of a sour, metallic, smoked ham, foot odor kind of taste. Nothing tasty at all. Palate is far too watery for a dubbel. Clearly a miss in terms of taste, palate and balance.

tricksta_p (1658) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - FEB 12, 2015
Àroma of malt, bread, caramel, brown sugar, sweet dark fruits. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet with a light bittersweet finish. Didn’t care much for the sugary sweetness. Overall not a success.
