1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Binnen kurzer Zeit ist das Bier ohne Schaum und wirkt abgestanden. Leicht spritiges und brotiges Aroma, igitt. Brotig säuerlicher Geschmack, absolut nicht mein Ding und pretty boring obendrein.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle into chalice, June 2010 date notched. Pours very cloudy dark reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense dark khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Decent spotty lacing on the glass, with a small bit of carbonation streaming up. Aromas of big raisin, prune, caramel, molasses, bread, pepper, clove, earth, candi sugar, light chocolate, nuttiness, and yeast spices. SOme pretty nice aromas with good balance and complexity. Taste of big raisin, prune, caramel, molasses, chocolate, toffee, bread, toast, pepper, clove, herbal, nuttiness, and earthy yeast spices. Moderately dry on the finish; with lingering notes of dark fruit, chocolate, nuttiness, pepper, and earthy spiciness on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance of flavors; with a bit more maltiness over the earthy spiciness. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth mouthfeel with the carbonation. Alcohol is extremely well hidden with pretty much no warming noticed at all after the finish. Extremely easy to drink. Overall this is a nice Dubbel. It wasn’t as robust in flavors as I was expecting; but it was still nicely balanced and fairly complex. Quite enjoyable.
