Very dark, coffee color - full rich body - staying head - effervescent nose - soft velvet feeling in the mouth - luscious. Malt character with a hoppy aftertouch. Monks used to fast on this type of beer for 40 days! No food, only beer.

330ml bottle, poured into Leffe chalice. Colour was dark auburn, small tanned head which didn’t last long although some lacing was retained. Aroma was yeast, a hint of cranberry and liquorice. Tasted cranberry, carrot and berries, yeast strain seemed to be the same as other Van Steenberge beers. Well carbonated, slightly thick body, smooth. Overall hid the booze well, which is always a plus point, nice beer to accompany a heavy meal.

StoutHead (608) - DENMARK - JUN 22, 2014
75cl. bottle. Pours a hazy red color with a huge off-white head. Aroma of caramel, malt, dates and sugar. Taste of malt, caramel, dried dark fruits, bread and sugar. Medium to full body and above average carbonation. Sweet with a long malty aftertaste. Very good dubbel, nothing fantastic but what it does it does quite well.

It has a dark cloudy brown color with some deep ruby highlights. The head is huge, thick and has stiff rocky peaks that are light tan in color. The aroma has lovely fruity esters and a roasted malty character as well. The body is heavy and full. In it there is a rich malty base with funky yeast and a dark fruity character. Dark cherries and prune are noted and add pleasant sweet and tart flavors to the brew. The finish has a fairly dry hops presence that adds some light bitterness. It is well carbonated and bites on the tongue, cutting through the heavy slick palate and the 8% abv. gives a mellow warming affect.

Bottle at home from notes. Pours dark brown in color with a large, frothy beige head that lasts. The aroma and flavor have caramel and cookie malts, dried dark fruits, raisins, dates and plums, light hops (earthy), and some buttery toffee. Full bodied with moderate warming alcohol. Decent enough.
