reakt (950) - 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.

tricksta_p (2675) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma is malt, caramel, dark bread, brown sugar, yeast, raisins, some fruity notes. Flavour is medium sweet with a little bitterness in the finish. Also a hint of sourness. Body is just medium, a bit thinner than expected. Drinkable, but a bit too sugary for my taste.

Hermod (5149) - 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.

psilosophy (612) - 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
