TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 22, 2007
Bottled (BB 10/2009)
Dark nut brown color, big beige head. Metallic, roasted and nutty aroma, hints of cold coffee. Crisp mouthfeel. Caramelly (brown sugar) flavor in the light palate. Tiny shade of spices, lots of caramel malts. Some bitterness and alcohol in the aftertaste. Quite typical middle-of-the-road abbey dubbel, no big faults but not very interesting either.

GilBier (75) - Dendermonde, BELGIUM - JUN 20, 2007
Nice deep brown in color with nice beige head on top. Aroma is slight sweet, malty, nutty with some roasted edges. Taste is smooth, nutty with some dry caramel notes and some well integrated hops. afthertaste is well in balans and in the finale the dry caramel notes are lingering on. like this on better than the blond version.

Maria (10149) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2007
Dark brown beer with a nice and creamy head. The aroma has notes of caramel, roasted malt and the flavour has sweetness, notes of fruit, candy sugar, roasted malt, caramel, citrus and a touch of chocolate. A charming brew. 2276

JoeinDahlem (1326) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - APR 17, 2007
On tap at Halve Maan brewery in Bruges. Dark brown with beige, lasting head. Aroma is faint but malty. The flavor of dark malts carries some bitterness, but overall this is a thin beer and somewhat watery. Perhaps something brewed for the tourist masses.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 10/20
sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2007
(Bottled) Hazy red-brown color with a medium, bubbly-foamy head. Slightly acidic aroma of sweetish, caramely and roasty malt, and hints of yeast. Quite acidic flavor with alcohol pretty evident. Oh, yeah - some neutral-sweetish, roasty-caramely malt, too. Light to medium-bodied, fizzy-foamy-carbonated palate. It’s funny, that in the (touristy, but fun) brewery tour, the visitors are assured, that top fermentation is the key to making tasty beer. However, this brew is a good example of how to make a top-fermented beer taste as much like a dull bottom-fermented one as possible! No wonder they only served the more bearable blond version after the tour...

Skinnyviking (7062) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 5, 2007
Bottle. High and lasting creamy off-white head. Clear dark brown body. Caramel cocoa aroma with notes of raspberry. Flavor dominated by cocoa and vanilla. Nice and sweet without being too much of a good thing.
