December 6, 2012; 7.0% abv, 330 mL, trappist, BBD: 09/70/14 Aroma of belgian yeast, banana and bubble gum. Also some herbal hops evident with some spice. Pours a deep burgundy with a tan head which doesn’t stick around for too long. Sweet toasty malts with dark fruit. Spices from the booze are upfront while the herbal hops take a backseat. Nice carbonation from the bottle conditions. Medium bodied. Pretty good but nothing special within the style.

Dark beer with a white - beige head. Aroma is medium sweet, malty and a bit fruity. Flavour is medium sweet, malty and a bit acidic due to the carbonation. (Bottle 33cl)

Net als zijn blonde broertje een bier met een volle, uitgesproken smaak. Ze zijn beide echte aanraders

Alengrin (2085) - BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2014
The dark counterpart of the classic blonde triple Augustijn, since 2009. Off-white foam that sticks firmly to the grass, dark mahogany brown colour, misty. Typical Belgian dubbel aroma: candi sugar, dark chocolate, walnuts, pear, banana, elderberry syrup. Taste begins a but neutral with some iron, smooth, after which dark fruits and caramelly and nutty malts appear, in a soft and somewhat cliché way; finish has a bit toasted bitterness as well as grassy hops, but ends rather short. Typical Van Steenberge ale: okay and enjoyable, but cliché and far from exciting.

Bamsen78 (3225) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2014
Draught as Cambrivinus Bruin @ Bierbrasserie Cambrinus, Brugge. Pours hazy very dark brown witg small off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel and fruit. Sweetish flavour of fruit and caramel malt, with subtle bitter, hoppy touches. Faint vinous hints. Rough and sweetish afteraste. Warming alcohol presence. A decent, regular Belgian Dubbel.

The smell is sweet of caramel and dark fruit. Pours hang brown with a white head. The taste is nice and sweet with notes of caramel, figs, dades and nuts.
