3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
With a roasted nutty aroma and a dark brown appearance with a small foamy head this dubbel is a treat. The flavor is sharp on the tongue and lingers on the palate. The hints of the roasted nuts that you small are very apparent and enjoyable!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
large creamy frothy head light brown. excellent lacing. mostly lasting. flat thick dark amberish-brown body. aroma: alcohol, wood, citrus lemon, moderate malty. if and ff: moderate sweet light bitter. palate: light body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic light alcoholic finish. Aroma lembra bastante whisky, sabor amadeirado, alcoólico, espuma fica cremosa após algum tempo, sabor cítrico, sem ser azedo, diferencial em relação a dubbel, sendo mais refrescante e menos alcoólica e maltada, foge do estilo, mas é uma boa cerveja

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown with a little white foam. A little bland flavor. a little stale and lacking fullness, however fine aftertaste from the Belgian yeast.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.
