MrMaerzen (28) - Utrecht, - DEC 15, 2012
Fruit nor of plums and cherries. A hint of alcohol. Sweet taste, candysugar with still a bit sourness of fruit. Short aftertaste. I would say this beer is to classify as a ’ summer double’

Clear dark brown, brown head. Roasted malts with a hint of burnt wood, caramel notes. Perhaps some cellar. Watery taste with brown sugar and some other caramelized malty notes.

- Alcoholpercentage van 7% - Redelijk biertje destijds gedronken - Niet verkeerd, maar heb naar mijn smaak veel lekkerder biertjes gedronken - Vandaar mijn niet al te hoge waardering uiteindelijk ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A deep dark brown in colour. This beer goes down quite smoothly, though I'm not such a fan of how it looks.

Una buona dubbel. Nella media per tutti i tratti distintivi, con qualcosina in più per quanto riguarda l’aroma, ben delineato

tom10101 (3104) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2014
Bottle (250 ml). Brown with a small brown head and little lacing. Aroma is of toasted malt and caramel, but it’s also quite fruity and a tad spicy. Metallic notes. Taste is also of toasted malt, fruity notes, caramel and light spiciness. Metallic notes here too. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Bland finish. Subpar Dubbel. Disturbing metallic notes. Not horrible though.
