4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Embouteillée le 21-03-2013... On sent les fruits séchés, les bananes, l’alcool et la levure. C’est aussi bon que dans mon souvenir; une des meilleures doubles que j’ai pu goûter sans contredit. Rien ne détonne, tout est parfaitement en harmonie. Belle réussite!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown body, large head, looks amazing. Well developed, dark fruit like figs and prune. Pumpkin pie spices, crusty bread. Large amount of flavour, bit woody, barn, fruity, rustic, hay and bitter enough. Only in the end does the alcohol come to play. Quite dry actually too, in taste. Slightly undercarbonated. The best dubbel I have tasted in ages! It almost single handedly would convince me to drink those more often of even brew one... (50cl bottle from Bière Revolution)

Still very new to this style. Will re-evaluate later. For now, I feel like this one is laking that nice caramel, rond bodied sweetness that I enjoy in other dubbels. Rating pending.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Dark ruby/brown. The head lets it down compared to most Belgian dubbels. Aroma is very good though. Chocolate, prune, orange peel and leather, plus the spices really come to the fore. Taste follows similar lines, and whilst enjoyable it doesn’t feel nearly as elegant as the aroma did. Spiciness here is more from the yeast than anything added. Plenty of positives but I wish everything coalesced a bit more.

Double de Dominus Vobiscum. Draft de raisins secs,prunes,date,anis, légè caramel, pétillement timide.En Bouche c’est soyeux très bien balancé. Des notes épicées se love avec un caramel chaud et des petite touche de fruits murs ce confondent et ce perdent dans une final légèrement amère mais un petit peut sucré, non franchement c’est bien.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
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.
