3.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml Bottle. This pours a loose foamy tan head over a deep brown body with an average amount of lacing. Its aroma is almost non-existent with maybe the faintest hint of dark fruits and wheat. Its taste, as other have said, is very light for a dubbel, but there is a subtleness to it. a bitter start quickly moves into sweetness followed by dark fruits, caramel and maybe a hint of liquorice with a bitter finish. This beer is the darker brother of the ordinary Bruges Zot and the similarity is definitely there. On a night out I would prefer the lighter version, but on a cold night a couple of these would warm you nicely!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly red cola color with strong foam head. Aromas are hearty and sweet, everything is in there: subtle sweetness of kandij (rock candy), triple-like yeast, barley wine, small hints of raisins and cherries. Deep whiff gives off a little salmiak. Very well balanced. Taste is very earty, sensation resembles liquid whole weat bread/rye. Salmiak is relatively strong, flows into a nice bitterness with slightly boozy aftertaste. Great.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A dubbel style beer like so many others. This one is very smooth and no flavour ever gets on top, very balanced, but also a bit boring. Nothing that makes this one stand out. Its slightly roasted, faint caramel taste and a smooth finish. Nice beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark successor of Brugse Zot with a light yellowish beige, mousse-like head on a dark chestnut robe. Aroma of bitter chocolate, hazelnuts, figues, plums, vague spicy notes. Malty, dryish taste, dried fruits, ending in a grassy hop bitterishness. Very cliché dubbel.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Een dubbel is normaal een bier met goed wat smaak, dat is echter het geval niet bij deze. Jammer

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Rood bruin bier met veel schuim. Smaak is licht bitter en droog, bessen en banaan, echter niet erg intens. Valt tegen en lijkt niet op een Abbey Dubbel.

On tap at Christian Firtal. Red copper colour with a big off-white head. The aroma has tropical fruit, caramel, dark sugar and a bit of phenolic yeast. Dry fruity flavour of dried fruit, tropical fruit and winegum, with bready malt and caramel
