COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La Double est une bière à la robe brun-cardinal d’une structure complexe et à la riche palette aromatique. Son nez de fruits confits, raisins secs et anis laisse deviner un corps onctueux, légèrement liquoreux. C’est une grande bière de dégustation à savourer délicatement. Elle peut se conserver trois ans mais afin de mieux apprécier son plein potentiel de flaveurs. Il est conseillé de la déguster entre 6 mois et 3 ans suivant la date d’embouteillage inscrite sur la bouteille. OG: 19P, IBU:10, AA: 81%, 65 LOV

Pleasant mouthfeel has a certain airy character from the small and compact bubbles, yet keeps a good roundness and creaminess from the excellent malt extraction. In terms of flavors, it takes some time and warming up to develop fully, but once that is done, it is an explosion of anise that is quickly joined by prunes, figs and cherries/blackberries though it has nowhere near the fruit concentration I expected, namely thick flavors of dates and grapes.

Squat bottle from Smith’s. Pours deep ruby with no head. Tastes caramelly, sweet, cloying and malty, with mild hops, some fruity and vegetal notes, and a crappy finish. This is a drain pour, my first in years. Got even more vegetal as it warmed.

Lots of aroma coming off this beauty. Initial sniffs brought forward some very grape juice notes, that gave way after a moment to raisin, toffee, and lightly roasted grain. The dark beige head was between fizzy and foamy and retained nicely. The colour is a rich brown with some cloudiness. The flavour is sweetness finished with some bitterness and a touch of umami slides in there at the end as well. The after taste lingers for a few moments and is just this side of bitter. The medium body could be a tad more full to really help carry the flavours, but otherwise very nice.

Buena cerveza de abadia compleja con muchos matices dulces pero sin pesadez al paladar. Mejora a temperatura de 10º.

Bottle from Viti, Vancouver; bottled 2013-01-04, 1 year old
Dark brown color, barely penetrable, with generous beige creamy head. Deep aroma of caramel, with reminders of liquorice, cellar, mold and ammonia, cream and bread, old-style Belgian; ending with light blueberry; very interesting. The mouthfeel is lean, very smooth; harmonious caramel flavor with a nutty and fruity touch; the bitterness is quite low, although some nutty roastiness provides bitter notes. The final is a bit weak and short.
Just a tad less sweet than Belgian beers, but it’s an impressive example of elegance and nuances.

Bottle sample from notes. Pours dark brown in color with a creamy beige head. The aroma and flavor has figs and dates, caramel, yeast, cloves and some additional spices, vinous notes, light anise, bubblegum, candi sugar, and mild woody notes. Pretty sweet overall.
