Bottle: Dark red brown with a foamy head that quickly disappears. Bitter chocolate, malty, sweet smells. Taste is bittersweet with notes of dark fruits and noticeable traces of it’s 7% alcohol content. From mid bottle on the taste is much lighter and less complex. I prefer the blonde Ciney.

Marrón oscura, chocolate. No mucha espuma. Ligero aroma caramelizado. Dulzona en boca, azúcar tostada. Tono aguado y carbonatacion media. Entra bien y esconde muy bien el alcohol.

Zeer mooi aroma van fruit. Smaak en nasmaak zijn geweldig. Mooi fruit rolt over de tong en het bier is zeer verfrissend.

bonkiedeaap (428) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2015
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is deep brown colored and pours a cream colored head, with nice carbonation. The aroma is roasted malts, dark and dried fruits, some hidden hops and spices, and a hint of caramel. The taste is medium bodied with a nice balance between bitter and sweet, with some nice tones of raisins and some caramel. The finish is light bitter and full. Nice one, not the best dubbel, but this beer I would like to drink again.
