3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle at Porterhouse Cork. Pours a deep ruby-black with a thin off-white head. Aroma is quite lagery, grassy caramel, bit of hop, quite acidic. Taste is medium sweetness and medium bitterness. Quite perfumed, floral rose overtones. Lively carbonation, floral aftertaste. Reasonable, but not a great representation of the style.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle. BB 03/27/15. Pours an amber red with plenty of sediment. Smell is wine, vinous, tart dark fruits, malt, spells pretty springy. Was on sale at Beinnys so grabbed it. Flavor is a bit oxidized, bit of mint, some soy, floral notes, sweet malt, dark fruits, low body. The smell was really nice, flavor not as much, it does get better as you go with some almost tropical fruit notes.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Belgian-style dubbel in Amarcord’s AMA series, with loosely structured, light beige head and caramel brown colour, misty. Pleasant aroma of chocolate, candi sugar, nuts, caramel, jute and aniseed, taste mildly fruity, raisins, spicy accents, mouthfeel a bit too watery and thin for this genre, some candi sweetness, finish mildly hoppy, not turning bitter, again rather thin. As much as I love Belgian-style ales and as much as I admire the often underestimated brewing activity in the north of Italy, this one just didn’t quite do it for me.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cloudy reddish brown color, average sized off white head with good retention. Medium body, soft carbonation. Texture is surprisingly watery. Aroma of malts, yeast, spices, raisins, dark fruits. Medium sweet taste. It lacks body to be a great Dubbel. Also, little bit bland. Not bad, but expected more.
