Donkere chocoladebruine kleur met goede schuimkraag. Ruikt zoetig en een beetje fruitig, grapefruit. Smaakt veels te zoet. Tonen van caramel en iets frutig.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a nice dark red beer with a not very long lasting head. Smells quite good. A little bit sour and fish. Salty. The taste is not so nice. Strange ingredient.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours very dark brown, beige head. Nose is a lot of chocolate, malt, cola. Flavour is similar, subtle malt, a lot of esters, somewhat phenolic, caramel. This is probably the subtlest dubbel Iíve ever had. Iím really taking a liking to it though, itís very sessionable. No overpowering molasses flavour. 3/4 dubbel, 1/4 porter.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
300 ml bottle, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 6.5%
Three fingers of off-white, sopay head, with very good retention, especially after it loses its initial half size. Heavy lacing left behind. Colour of the beer itself is a very dark mohogany brown. Impressive.
Sweet aroma of roasted malts and lots of caramel and at the same time a bit sour, of stewed dark fruits.
Taste is sweet at first and fruity. Lots of the roasted malts here too, along with fruits, becomes a very pleasant light bitterness, with delicious choclate notes.
Full body, as much carbonation as needed and sort of sticky on the palate.
Pleasantly surprised with this one, a truly delicious beer, although I am sure many will find it too sweet.
