RW80 (1839) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2015
33cl bottle.(Labelled as Berkel Dubbel) Appearance: Brownish with a 1 mm head leaving a few spots of lacing. Aroma: Sweet candy sugars Taste: Sweet candy sugars , malts,hint of coffee and caramel in the back. (Haagse hopjes style.) Cloying sweetness. Medium body, below average carbonation. It gets better when aged but fresh I do ot see any reason to buy a Van Steenbeege Dubbel.
