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!

330ml bottle from Les Crepes de Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours a lovely chestnut brown. Nutty roasted malts, caramel and a soothing sweetness in the taste. Flavours come together quite softly making this an easy-going dubbel.

Tap pour is dark brown, with dark red on glass when backlit. Aroma is overripe fruit sweetness. Taste is mild with a thin mouthfeel. From notes taken at Huisbrouwerij De Halve Maan, Brugge on June 7 2007.

Cerbier (85) - - APR 17, 2014
0,3l Flasche. Rötlichbraunes Bier mit anhaltender heller Schaumkrone. Es riecht nach Caramel und ein bißchen nach Alkohol. Schmeckt leicht süßlich nach getrockneten Pflaumen, Caramel und Hefe. Der Alkohol kommt leider etwas zuviel durch.

Koning_Daan (56) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours a reddish brown with a huge off-white head. sweet caramel smell. Taste also caramel, brown sugar, noticable alcohol. Overall pretty bland and flat taste, not that much body.

KombatAle (58) - New Brunswick, CANADA - APR 5, 2014
bottle 330 ml Very nice label, but I was expected more body from this brown beer, it’s very flat and watery in the mouth. Caramel, yeast, nuts, chocolate malt. Balanced well.

tricksta_p (631) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 8, 2014
Aroma of malts, caramel, and lots of dark fruits, such as cherry. Contrary to a lot of Dubbels, this one goes easy on the sweetness, much to my satisfaction. I was already fond of Brouwerij De Halve Maan, and this one only confirms it.
