3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur rougeâtre très sombre, mousse moyenne qui ne tient pas. Arômes fruités (fruits noirs) et épicés. Je l’ai trouvée un peu aigre et surtout déçu par une sensation vraiment pas folichonne en bouche. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.

Btl at The Occidental Belgian Beer Cafe. Clear red-brown pour with a creamy, off-white head leaving light lace. Medium-light body with champagne-like carbonation. Apricots, candy, toast, cherries, not too much ethanol. Lingering, malty sweetness. Pretty average dubbel, bettered by Chimay Rouge.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Mighty fizzy so whilst the froth settled down in my glass I took a few swigs from the bottle (classy). Smells of musty alcoholic mould and carbon dioxide mixed with drying paint. Quite malty with a soft mouth feel and hints of dark cherry and cheese cake. Quite zingy on the tongue which will be the high alcohol I guess. Dark brown in colour and slightly opaque. An easy drinking skull splitter.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep brown with a coarse tan head that quickly vanished leaving a placid smooth surface. Aroma is of caramelized banana, not over-ripe. Body is very light and smooth, especially for the style. Flavor is moderate banana, very light caramel, and a light-to-moderate toasted/roasty finish. the flavor profile is a bit light for the style, but its forgivable because of the unique characteristics of this beer- its dark, light bodied, even slightly roasty.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reddish brown with huge lively beige head. Aroma is nutty, with notes of burned sugar and dried fruits. Taste is nicely balanced between sweet caramel-malts and fruity hops (grapefruit, peaches). Mouthfeel is warm, carbonation is quite lively, body is medium and finish is dry, long and medium bitter. A very refreshing take on a dubbel!

This was one of my favorite beers for a long time. Then i started tasting more beers and this one fell down in score a few steps. Still it’s a very nice dark beer. Caramel and nuts in taste.
