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.

Tried on draft in unfiltered version at the brwery. looks like a dark ale should, lovely sulphur cream head. Begian character to the smell, along with red berries, malt, caramel. Very smooth malty fruit flavour with red winegums, just right balance of sweetness, very satisfying and drinkeable. No aftertaste I can remember. Not as memorable a beer as the blonde.

Heidbummer (197) - SCOTLAND - JUL 23, 2016
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.

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.
