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.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2011
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!

Benzai (12603) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2011
Nice brown color, could have been a little darker. Normal smell and good taste. Palate very good. ABV prefect for this beer.

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.

Trocken malziger Antrunk mit leichter Herbe, etwas Schokolade. Später hefig, wenig bitter, rund aber langweilig da sehr mild. Dunkler und stimmigerer Abgang. 8/8/8/9/8/9

Rune (10838) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2011
Poured from tap at the brewhouse. Inviting, stable filmy layer over a deep, dark brown body. Dark malty aroma with hints of dark fruits. Raisin and prunes together with sweet, dark malts in flavour. Hints of anise. Bittersweet ending. Liked it, especially since it was the first beer before noon on a Monday in Brugge, 02.05.2011.

MrHangover (3809) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2011
This is one that I really looked forward too, to give it a try. Too bad, it wasn’t what I expected it to be. Aroma was yeasty and alcoholic, returns in the taste. But the taste also had some spicey side taste with hints of clove and plums. This beer is certainly not bad at all, but just not quite what I expected from De Halve Maan.

txspartan (1014) - Berchem, BELGIUM - APR 9, 2011
Average dubbel at best. I am still convinced that there is something in the water of Brugge that makes it difficult to make an enjoyable beer.

GBZ59 (1217) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - APR 3, 2011
Served in a chalice, pours brown colored with a foggy ody. Dense foam with medium bubbles, very good retention. Your nose will perceive toasted malts 6 yeast profile, hops not shown. Taste is sweety with spicy notes of dark fruis. Alcohol is present in a medium-heavy body & could be felt overall. An standard but not less good Belgish Bruin.Nice drinkability sip by sip.

Eructoblaster (3711) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 26, 2011
Bottle - 330ml. Dark brown body with a thick beige foamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with grassy hints. Taste carries woody and yeasty notes. Ends with a decent bittersweet finish. Enjoyable.
