MustangMarkF (219) - Coventry, West Midlands, - SEP 25, 2013
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!

Icedwarf (270) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2014
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.

edsspoon (331) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle - pours hazy copper with a big rocky light brown head. Very good retention and thick lacing. Aroma of banana, cloves, bubblegum, pear and somewhat toasty. Taste of roasted malt, nuts, bitterness, earthy with a finish of sweet bubblegum flavours and a long bitterness. Some toffee, fruit and perfume. Alcohol permeates through a little bit which isn’t too pleasant. Medium body with a medium to high carbonation.

Moravius (407) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 13, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2014 Flasche (75 cl) von De Halve Maan, Brügge; 1 Jahr daheim gelagert. - Dunkles Kastanienbraun. - In der Nase schweres dunkles Malz, Rosinen, dezente (für einen Belgier) Gewürznote, weinige, fast likörartige Süße, aber auch krautiger Hopfen. - Antrunk üppig süß und obergärig fruchtig (Pflaume) mit dominierendem Röstmalz und Noten von Amaretto. Stark rezent bis schaumig (was mich bei belgischen Ales immer stört). Im Abgang kräftig röstmalzbitter und trocken mit Noten von Mokka und leichter Apfelsäure; leicht holziger hopfenherber Nachtrunk. - Auch aus der Flasche ein sehr schönes Dubbel: zwar recht süß, aber doch deutlich frischer, schärfer und herber als viele bekanntere (z.B. Gouden Carolus). Unfiltriert vom Faß in Brügge war es noch besser. Wenn es nur nicht so unsinnig schaumig wäre ...
