COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle Conditioned - 75 cl, and 33 cl bottles.
Ingredients: Pilsner malt (French barley from Champagne); wheat starch or flour (10% - 15%); dextrose (5%); malt extract (0.1%); hop extract from German Hallertaur (aroma) & American Galena (bittering) hops. Yeast & liquid invert sugar added to the bottled beer.
Chimay Red is noted for its coppery colour which makes it particularly attractive. Topped with a creamy head, it gives off a light, fruity apricot aroma produced by the fermentation. The taste perceived in the mouth is a balance confirming the fruity nuances noticed in the fragrance. Its taste, which imparts a silky sensation to the tongue, is made refreshing by a light touch of bitterness. To the palate, the taster perceives a pleasant astringency which complements the flavour qualities of this beer very harmoniously. This top fermented Trappist beer, refermented in the bottle, is not pasteurised.

Beautiful Trappist with surprisingly light amber color for a Dubbel style. Quite fruity on the mouth.

Mahogany color with off-white head. Nice spicy aroma with some estery fruitiness. The taste is awesome with spice, banana and a hint of caramel, very little alcohol. Medium mouthfeel, slightly sweet. Great one.

labeerinthum (451) - Milano, ITALY - JUN 26, 2016
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso appartiene a luppolo e fruttato. L’intensitŕ olfattiva č elevata e la persistenza olfattiva č ragguardevole. Il cappello di schiuma a bollicine medie si fa ricordare per il pizzo finale. L’aspetto del liquido č opalescente. Il colore č ambrato carico. Il corpo č strutturato ma duttile. L’amaro č medio. L’intensitŕ gustativa č elevata e la persistenza gustativa č buona. Il gusto č piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di birra beverina. Il finale č lungo, secco e pulito. In bocca l’aroma riporta sentori di resina, fiori, pane, frutta, frutta secca e agrumi.

Block (2152) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 13, 2016
Hazy brown pour with a thick and fluffy off-white head. Aroma is sweet, slightly alcoholic. Flavor is smooth. It’s sweet with some nice caramel and malts. Alcohol is masked. It has a traditional taste. Some fermented fruit at the finish.

BBHansen (686) - Křge, DENMARK - JUN 12, 2016
Bottle @ Friends/chef. Appearance: pours slightly cloudy copper-brown with good tan soapy head and lacing. aroma/taste: caramel, bread, brown sugar, light dried fruit and spices. palette: medium yeasty aroma, average to sparkling carbonation, medium body, medium sweetness, balanced by a medium bitterness, average duration and an oily texture. overall: Nice fruity notes, but not quite the malt profile i was expecting in a dubbel

Patersoi (146) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 10, 2016
Pours ruby with delicious creme brulee aroma. Unfortunately the flavour is quite a bit more bitter than i like, and more bitter than the blue and white chimays. Only hints of the estery trappist goodness. Short finish

(Cas) Se trata de una cerveza negra bastante turbia que presenta un sabor muy dulce y levemente afrutado. Contrasta bastante con otras cervezas negras ya que en esta predomina el aroma frutal frente a otras en las que el caramelo y/o el café es lo más común (dentro de mi experiencia). (Gal) Trátase dunha cervexa negra bastante turbia que presenta un sabor moi doce e levemente afroitado.

Świetny dubbel. Barwa morelowa, z lekkimi przebłyskami. Ładna drobnopęcherzykowa piana, która po kilku minutach redukuje się do małej obwódki. Niezbyt intensywny zapach, da się wyczuć morele i rodzynki, w tle majaczą nieokreślone przyprawy. W smaku festiwal suszonych owoców, dalej przyprawy, delikatna słodycz i w posmaku rodzynki i dobrej jakości tytoń. Do tego idealnie dopasowane wysycenie. Świetny dubbel.

PabloZab (1032) - Wroclaw, POLAND - JUN 5, 2016
Butelka 330ml (12.2020). Piwo zmętnione o miedzianej barwie. Piana w kolorze ecru jest bardzo obfita, drobna o kremowej konsystencji, trwała a opadając oblepia niemal całe szkło. Aromat delikatny z nutami owocowymi, karmelowymi, suszonych owoców, delikatnymi nutami fenolowymi w tle. W smaku owocowo-tostowe, ciut karmelowe z nutami suszonych owoców. Sredniotreściwe, delikatnie słodkie z wyraźnym wytrawnym, ciut alkoholowym, winnym finiszem. Piwo jest dość wysoko wysycone niemniej całkiem gładkie w odczuciu z dobrze ukrytym alkoholem, który tylko nieznacznie rozgrzewa od środka.
