skortila (4348) - Baarn, - APR 4, 2012
Bottled. The aroma has fruitiness, some malts. Hazy, brown coloured beer with a slight off-white head. The taste is slightly sourish, quite fruity, bit caramel malty, yeasty. Not my thing.

Hanoi (296) - - JAN 18, 2014
Nose: Sour notes, green apple. Taste: vinous, leather, leading to green apples, a touch of cola, toffee, oak, malt and a touch of smoke leading too slight sweetness and herbal, medicinal tones in the finish. The mouthfeel is too thin. An interesting beer, but is not really what I would expect from a dubbel.

An enormous head to this beer, bottle was foaming for 5 minutes after opening the bottle. Couldn't taste the alcohol in the beer, which for an 8% beer is an accomplishment. Couldn't taste any massive standout flavours in it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BierFiend (248) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Pours dark cloudy brown with a small white head. The smell of alcohol comes through with some roasty smell. Tastes of caramel and alcohol with a slight bitterness. Refreshing and went well with some bread and cheese.

Beesbeer (452) - WALES - FEB 10, 2013
A very nice strong ale. Flavour first of all sour Bramley apples and then reminiscent of the toffee burnt raisins at the edge of a bread and butter pudding. Little hints of cinnamon, leather and creamy gold top as well as sherbet sharpness. This is an ale with the power to ambush.

Bottle. Pours brown with a frothy tan head. Interesting aroma of fruit and funk. Medium heavy body, thick texture, flavor of dark fruit, wood, and alcohol. An enjoyable after dinner drink.

Scopey (5543) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2012
Bottle thanks to Leighton (thanks for the Whale bro). It pours hazy deep brown with a small beige head. The nose is wood, earth, leather, vinous aspect, strawberry and raspberry yoghurt. The taste is caramel, wood, earth, leather, dried fruit, light tanginess, raisin, tart raspberry and alcohol warmth with a dry finish. Medium-full body and soft carbonation. Nice depth of flavour. Surprisingly I rather like it. Good stuff!

Leighton (9855) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2012
Bottle shared at King William IV, London during the Magic Rock event. Pours mostly clear, golden-brown with a moderate, creamy tan head. Tangy fruit nose, cherries and berries, some toasty sugars. Medium to big sweet flavor with moderate alcohol presence, tangy berries, some bitter leaves, light earth, toast. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish, lightly funky with big tangy berries, cherry, grape, prunes. Fairly dynamic stuff. An interesting British take on the Belgian dubbel.

goozen (2726) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2012
Bottle 0,5ltr: Bought it at the National Brewery Centre, Burton-on-Trent. Hazy dark brown coloured brew with red glow, very active foamy and gushing brew. Taste of apple, brown sugar, caramel and some sourness, an Burton Abbey Double.

Palme (2993) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2012
0.5l bottle courtesy of StoreMy shared with ClubGonzo and InBreak. A massive massive gusher. I got the honor of opening it and it ended up all over the table, the floor and me. Itís a really hazy red-brown body with a lasting lacing off-white head. Aroma thick of blue cheese. Dust and sour white vine flavors. Clearly clearly infected. Flavors are totally off. Nuff said I suppose? 12.02.2012
