reakt (949) - Greater London, - APR 16, 2010
Bottle from Dranken Geers, upon recommendation of Duff (about 2 years old with a best before ’09).
Poured reddish brown with a thin beige head. Displayed some obvious signs of age but retained many of the aforementioned qualities I see below. Dark malts, slightly bready, some caramel/candi sugar sweetness and a hint of fruit. Had developed quite a strong brett character which was lovely, in fact it was like an Orval dubbel, although a tiny bit thin on the palate. I expected it to be ruined after sitting in my flat for two years but it was still really nice.

psilosophy (549) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - MAR 23, 2015
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur marron foncé, opaque, mousse abondante de belle tenue. Je ne sais pas si j’ai perdu mon palais à cet instant ou si la bouteille a subi une avarie mais à part quelques arômes de fruits secs et bien...rien du tout! C’ est bien pétillant, alcoolisé, un peu acide mais aucune personnalité. A retester. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert

Hermod (3957) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2015
33cl bottle. As Ambiorix Bruin. Poured brown color, murky, dense white head. Floral hops, caramelly aroma, green tea notes. Really pleasant. Flavor has tea, caramel, sugars, floral notes. Surprisingly thin for the abv. High drinkability, I like this one, even if dubbel is not a style I prefer.

Alengrin (3019) - BELGIUM - JAN 5, 2015
One of those old school Slaghmuylder beers, not sure if this is still made, rated from old notes. A dark chestnut brown beer with pale beige, moussy head and malty character with some dried fruits, walnuts and biscuit in the nose; malty and restrained fruity taste, sweetish with a hint of candi sugar as well as a certain sourishness, dryish finish with herbal hops and a touch of warming alcohol. Very decent.
