COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Esta espumosa cerveza de alta fermentación obtiene un sutil gusto acaramelado gracias al uso de maltas especiales tostadas tipo caramelo. Esto le da a la cerveza un tenue paladar de pasas, galletas y caramelos. Balanceado con el amargor de los aromáticos lúpulos tipo Saaz de la República Checa, obtenemos una bien balanceada y versátil cerveza. Siguiendo antiguas tradiciones Belgas, una pequeña adición de azúcar cande oscura se usa para darle a la cerveza un toque ligero al paladar a pesar de su fuerza. Esta cerveza la hacemos todo el año y nos parece ideal para acompañar platillos fuertes de corte europeo, especialmente carnes, gravy, papas, estofados y algunos quesos ligeros como el brie, tetilla, Tomme de Savoie y Port Salut. También hace buena pareja con algunos postres elaborados con chocolate amargo y caramelo. Nada como una dubbel de abadía en la Gran Plaza de Brusselas cuando iluminan la fachada del ayuntamiento.

Lubiere (9790) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2014
A reddish copper ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with light grassy hops, light acidity, not bad. In mouth, a sweet lightly sour ale with dark fruits, faint hops, OK.

DuffMan (6554) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle @ Delerium Cafe in Rio de Janeiro. We learned upon ordering that it was 2-for-1, so we had to drink two of these (thankfully there were 6 of us). Very cloudy amber brown with a small golden head. Extremely sticky sweet, dates and demarera sugar, not much yeast character. Too simple, too sweet.

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - OCT 22, 2009
Excelletn beer, one of the best Belgian styles brewed outside of Beligum. With hints of spices and very nice aromas. Cloudy appearance and nice aromatic head and body.

ghawener (1454) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle: From all Calaveras this one is the better (not best) I’ve tried. Malty, bready some Belgian ale resemblance. Food Pairing: soft cheese.

dalekliz (862) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear brown-red with a white head that fades. Malty aroma, sweet and a little toasty, of brown sugar, dark fruits, yeast, citrus. Taste is a bit watery, of sweet malt, dark fruits, juice, yeast. Lingering watery sweetness. Not bad.

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2012
Dark amber or orange in colour, beige head. Some chocolate, some caramel and dried fruits in the aroma. Taste is sweet, fruits, finish is prolonged, bitter-sweet and quite intense.

Sdaniel90 (324) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle, 355ml. Pours a deep copper colour with a thick brown head that fades quickly. Strong roasted and alcohol aroma. Sour, but not in a pleasant way (and I love sour ales). I’d say infected but I know better. This sourness is prevalent in most Calavera brews, but this is the first time I had a problem with it. If I had to describe the aftertaste with one flavor, it would be dog feces. Not a good beer, and down the drain it goes.

emartell (233) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - MAR 11, 2013
Se perciben ligeros aromas a maltas y fuertes notas acarameladas en virtud de las maltas utilizadas, así como aromas dulces. No se percibe la potencia alcoholica que por lo general presentan las cervezas de este estilo. En apariencia, cerveza obscura con destellos rubí, turbiedad alta. carbonatación ligera, cuerpo medio. Corona de espuma prácticamente nuela. En boca suave, ligera y bien equilibrada entre dulzor y amargor. Al paladar es una cerveza ligera, que inicia con un suave dulzor y posteriormente cambia por un amargor fino que deja el ultimo sabor en boca, sin embargo no se percibe, al igual que en el olfato, la potenia alcoholica caracteristica en el estilo, ni las notas chocolate o café, percibienodose solamente el caramelo de las maltas utilizadas. En general hablamos de una cerveza suave, ligera, refrescante y agdarable, pero definitivamente lejos de ser una cerveza dubbel de abadia.

Nice one, aroma of caramel and roasted malt, the taste is also of caramel with a little sweetness.

Percy0103 (117) - MEXICO - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle, 355ml. A mahogany beer with a small creamy head that fades away almost inmediatly. It has a floral aroma with a lot of alcohol. Taste reminds me of cider, but not in a pleasant way. It is too sour and there is something else going on, but I don´t want to keep drinking this beer to find out. It is completely off balance and becomes almost undrinkable. Between this and a macro, I would choose neither. The first beer I pour down the drain!
