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.

dark brown-mahogany colour, medium sized beige-ish head; aroma of dried fruits like raisin, figs and maybe some plum, as well, biscuit, hints of chocolate and alcohol; taste is the same though not that harmonic and intensive than the aroma; correct dubbel

Holmen2 (2462) - NORWAY - OCT 7, 2015
From bottle at Ro & Go, Zagreb, with TO 07.10.15. Dark copper. Very persistent pale brown head and lacing. Aroma of sweet berries of the forest and medium dark malt. Similar taste. Fruity, with good drinkability. Fulfilling these customers’ expectations.
