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!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Pours dark brown/hint of ruby with a big foamy tan head. Lots of caramel on the nose, and into the taste. Lots of malt, hint of dark fruit and figs, good full mouthfeel. I like this, but it’s not complex. It’s much bigger and bolder on draught at the brewery.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
