COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle; Unfiltered. Keg.
Brugse Zot Dubbel is a dark brown beer, inclining towards ruby red. It is brewed with six special varieties of malt, which give the beer a rich and distrinctive aroma. One can discover the scent of honey, almonds, chocolate and brown sugar. By using the Czech Saaz hop from Zatec, the beer has a complex palate of roasted malts and a distrinctive flavour. Brugse Zot Dubbel is known to leave a warm glow in the mouth with a bitter and hoppy finish, leaning towards liquorice and coffee roast. Bottle conditioned.

Ingredients: water, barley malt, sugar, Saaz hops, yeast.

A dark amber pour with a khaki head. Very metallic and off-putting aroma. Tons of prune juice, some toasted malt, a hint of roast, and dark fruit sweetness. A bit of spice and yeast, too. The flavor is quite metallic as well. Very heavy on the roast and prune notes, which is not pleasing either. A bit of cocoa, some mild clove spiciness, and some toasted bread.

Dark brown with a little white foam. A little bland flavor. a little stale and lacking fullness, however fine aftertaste from the Belgian yeast.

Rockspeny (15) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2012
Tried on draft in unfiltered version at the brwery. looks like a dark ale should, lovely sulphur cream head. Begian character to the smell, along with red berries, malt, caramel. Very smooth malty fruit flavour with red winegums, just right balance of sweetness, very satisfying and drinkeable. No aftertaste I can remember. Not as memorable a beer as the blonde.

ClubGonzo (5229) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 20, 2012
Bottle. Deep ruby body, large foamy off-white head retention. Aroma is Belgian ale yeast, red berries, some grainy notes and hints of eggnog, surprisingly. :-) Taste is grainy raisiny notes, caramel, hints of grass and red berries. Full body, fiery carbonation. Quite nice.

ShivanDragon (3015) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2012
Robijnrood, bittere hoppers. Niet een echt volle smaak, zelfs wat aan de flauwe kant. Voor mij te waterig en slap voor een dubbel ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Theydon_Bois (16017) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2012
Bottle in Boru, Brugge (Irish pub - to satisfy my old mans quest for cider!!!) - 07/07/12. Mid brown colour with a decent sized tan head. Fruits, yeast and a bready/malty nose. Tastes as nose with a little sweet fruit flavour, banana and toffee. Medium bodied but a little high on the carbonation.

33cl. Bottle. Poors hazy brown with tiny white head. Aroma is caramale, roasted malts, apple, herbs. Taste apple sweet, little bitter, sour hint. Mouth-feel thin. Sweet beer, I like it.
