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.

Kita (1818) - Koper, - FEB 1, 2013
Bottled, 0.33l. Hazy dark brown color with large frothy brownish head, no distinctive lacing, but remains a lot of yeast residue. Aroma of caramel malt, strawberries, cherries and spicy hops. Taste starts sour fruity with some raspberry, too. Then followed by spicy malt, which is substantially present in the aftertaste, too. Alcohol is well hidden, hops, apparently are hidden, too. Full body, sticky texture and fizzy natural carbonation in palate. A bit disappointing, expected much more...

Aukedebier (3) - KAUTTUA, FINLAND - JUN 12, 2016 does not count
It gives a nice appearance. Nice beige head, carbonation is good. The taste of (caramel) sugar is a bit too strong. This fades a bit after a couple of hits. Otherwise an interesting beer. But certainly not the best of Belgian beers. This brewery makes also Straffe Hendrik. Which deserves a better rating.

BOTTLE 33 CL. Dark ruby with a slight haze, big beige head. Dark malts aroma with notes of bread and dough, hints of wine and nail polish. The taste has dark toasted bread, a touch of caramel and a spicy herbal hoppy finish. The body is light to medium with a massaging carbonation. Not bad.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.
