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.

Btl at The Occidental Belgian Beer Cafe. Clear red-brown pour with a creamy, off-white head leaving light lace. Medium-light body with champagne-like carbonation. Apricots, candy, toast, cherries, not too much ethanol. Lingering, malty sweetness. Pretty average dubbel, bettered by Chimay Rouge.

Lore (2211) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 21, 2016
cloudy brown colour, large, dense beige hed, which lasts for several minutes; aroma of intensive dried cherry, plum jam with some biscuit and caramel notes; taste of dried cherry, plum jam with burnt notes, hints of chocolate and toast; good - though I cannot be objective in the case of this beer: this was one of my first ’real beers’ tasted in Brugge at the brevery several years ago during my honeymoon :-)

jbruner (4115) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 13, 2016
Unfiltered version on tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy brown on tap with fluffy tan head that dissipates slowly to leave great lace. Aroma and taste of mild caramel malt sweetness, a hint of roast and earth, a bit nutty, overlying Belgian yeast. Decent dubbel, they’re definitely better over here.
