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.

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.

superspak (4760) - Michigan, USA - JUL 9, 2012
330 ml bottle into chalice, best by 11/2013. Pours hazy dark reddish brown color with a nice 1-2 finger foamy khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Decent spotty lacing clings to the glass, with a fair amount of carbonation streaming up. Aromas of big apple, raisin, prune, molasses, caramel, earth, clove, herbal, and yeast spices. Very nice aromas with good balance and strength; big on the fresh apple aromas until it warms up. Taste of big apple, raisin, cherry, caramel, molasses, nuttiness, earth, toast, pepper, clove, and yeast spices. Lingering notes of apple, dark fruit, caramel, molasses, earth, toast, pepper, and yeast spices on the finish for a good bit. Very nice flavor balance and complexity; with no cloying sweetness at all. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a nice slick and lightly foamy mouthfeel as expected. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warming noticed after the finish. Very smooth to sip on. Overall this is a very nice dubbel. Nice flavor balance and complexity, and quite smooth. Maybe a touch too earthy, but I really have no complaints. Very well done.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - JUL 9, 2012
Pours chestnut with decent head. Malty aroma. I think I drank this too warm, as the body had a quite distinct alcoholic note not present in the stronger quadrupel. But a solid dubbel nonetheless.

Vaiz (4335) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2012
Bottle at home. Hazy dark reddish to brown pour, solid foamy off-white head. Aroma is spicy and roasty, a bit bready and also slightly metallic. Flavor is sweet roasty malts, slightly bitter spicy and hugely carbonated. A bit out of balance and sharp.

Ernest (7376) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy/fizzy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, toasted nuts/bread, cookie), lightly yeasty (basement), with notes of vanilla, currant, raisin, cola. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Pleasant aroma...nice malt and secondary fruity notes. Pretty watery, and on the sweet side, but ok in the mouth overall. Like the regular Zot, it’s decent and has potential, but is limited in depth and appeal.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 28, 2012
In bottle in Bruge. Pours a dark brown colour with a decent light tan head. Aroma of Ovaltine, chocolate, caramel, yeast and alcohol. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and CO2 prickle and a foamy mouth-feel. Lingering Ovaltine and chocolate again.
