Dark red ale, sweet and malty, good carbonation and a lasting finish with a slightly bitter aftertaste. I can appreciate it being a nice brew but too heavy for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bought a bottle at a liqor store in Leerdam. The beer has a dark brown color and a nice cream colored head, CO2 level is good. The aroma is light spicy with tones of chocolate. The taste is light sweet with tones of dark fruits and bitter chocolate. The finish is bitter and hoppy. A nice dubbel, but I know better ones.
