BlackHaddock (3605) - Shropshire, - NOV 14, 2012
20 Oct 2012: 33cl bottle at the Diest Bierfestival, shared with my wife. Dark brew with a good tan head. Sweet and sour feel to the beer from the start: sweet malty molasses vie with the semi-souring Port and a mini-hop bitterness in the nose and the mouth. Red fruit notes in the mix as well. Body wise the alcohol was fairly well hidden and I thought this one of the best Du Bocq brewed beers I’ve had so far.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2014
(Bottled, BBE 30.5.2016) Deep reddish brown with a medium, beige, lacy and everlasting head. Mild aroma of dried fruit, light roastiness and notes of chocolate. Flavor is dried-raisiny-fruity and lightly licoricey with port clearly present, some sourness in Oerbier style, no roastiness. Quite full body, high and foamy CO2, silky-smooth. This one came totally unexpected - from Stockmann, Tallinn - not the most complex brew, but perfectly balanced dubbel. Even in August. 4247

seynie (146) - Tienen, BELGIUM - AUG 20, 2014
Dark brown, head disappears. Smell is nice, brown beer with walnut and port grapes. Taste is dominated by a watered down port aroma from start though. Not much body for the alcohol percentage. Thinner finish than expected

mjik83 (103) - - AUG 17, 2014
33cl flesje via 8 Zaligheden, Maastricht Gedronken als Double Port, hetzelfde blijkbaar? Alcoholpercentage van 9% Uitgeschonken in Grimbergen glas Uiterlijk: zwart bier met minimale crèmelaag snel na inschudden Aroma en smaak: zoete van de port is goed waarneembaar, walnoot zoals vermeld lastig om te proeven. Wel kruidig beetje anijsachtig. Conclusie: apart, niet verkeerd. Leuk experiment met port. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PeatyPete (376) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2014
Drunk as Broeder Jacob Double Port. Dark almost black beer with quickly vanishing beige head. Aroma of port, ripe dark fruit. Taste similar to aroma. In addition to the fruit taste also some wood.

Alengrin (1025) - BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2014
Port-barrel aged version of Broeder Jacob Bruin, tasted as Broeder Jacob Double Port, apparently brewed at Du Bocq. Stable, yellowish foam, dark ruby brown colour, aroma of raisins, chocolate liqueur, port wine, candi syrup, pear, bread; sweet fruity taste, chocolatey and caramelly malts, port coming through and manifesting itself in a warm alcoholic finish, yet never astringent.
