3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught on a guest tap in Alkmaar, North Netherlands. Quite dark brown, with a thick beige head. The aroma is of herbs and chocolate. The taste is more of coffee and even tobacco. Kind of short finish compared to the big taste.

Pretty dark brown. Beige head, not big enough, disappears almost like pouring out soda... Sour-fruity-bread smell, same with the taste. What a disapointment, expected so much more from this one!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (in NZ). Pretty lively this side of the world. A peppery spiced malty nose, slightly medicinal. Medicinal follow through on the palate, some coffee notes to the very rich malt. The mouthfeel is just lacking a little - a touch thin. But there is plenty of peppery and spunk in this bad boy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub De Halve Maan, Bruges.
Dark ruby colour, with pale brown head. Ashes, metal and caramel aroma. Caramelly malty in flavour, slight toasty with a bit of chocolate, the latter lingers. Long flavour here. The Belgian yeast phenols makes it well feel like a stronger Dunkelweizen, with a touch of compost, and earthiness from the yeast and the dark malts. Solid beer!

Draught at the brewery. Hazy deep reddish brown, meduim beige head. Slightly roasted aroma with toffee notes and some ash tray aromas. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Well balanced with a dry finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. A lively beer, trying to sneak out of the bottle. It pours an unclear dark amber body with floaties and good carbonation. A big, lasting beige head sits on top. Dried fruits and dark candi-sugar dominates the aroma. There’s a little yeasty touch and some blackcurrant as well. The flavor is sweet and fruity, with some alcohol, a little bitterness, a hint of dark berries, some yeasty notes and a hint of spices. Full-bodied, effervescent and warming. It dries up quite a lot in the finish, where the alcohol plays a major part, and a fine bitterness lingers. Overall, it’s too effervescent and sweet, but I really like the way it gets quite dry in the finish. Sure won’t shy away from drinking more of this. 100227

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Was a bit disappointing. Had this one at De Zuid @ KNSM eiland in Amsterdam. On bottle. Head died rather quickly, body was a bit weak. All in all not the best dubbel I have had.
