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.

Served from a bottle in a snifter. Pours ruby red with a medium diminishing head. The aroma is a wonderful mix of yeast, apples and some floral notes. At the second sniff some almost undetected vinegar notes creep in but not in a horrible way... it makes the smell somewhat more interesting. The taste is a really complex combination of sweet malts, caramel, raisins and toffee. Extremely nice and interesting beer.

Gangstergafje (479) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2016
The beer has a beautiful deep ruby red color. A delicate layer of almond colored, rather rough foam is formed on top of it. The bulk of the foam doesn’t remain for a long time. The beer is quite clear. The smell is nice. It has a nice sweet aspect. It is a little watery unfortunately. There is also a sour aroma, reminding me of sourdough bread. The smell has something savory. It is quite nice. There is a nice roasted barley flavor and an almondy alcohol aroma. Its a nice beer, but it definitely doesn’t belong to the world top.

nybol (1059) - DENMARK - MAR 13, 2016
Anstændigt mørk rød-brun farve. Gær og et strejf af malt i aroma. I første omgang var jeg ikke alt for imponerede, tænker der var ikke megen subtilitet her, let humlet, sødlig og meget sent bitter eftersmag. Er der noget nødder i den her?

Aroma has some sweetness in it with alcohol, cough drop, licorice and dough. Dark, almost black color, with no head. No sweetness in taste which is good. Lightly bitter, astringent finish. Fizzy carbonation. Overall, this beer was a nice experience.

Silvan7 (1008) - Samarate, ITALY - FEB 13, 2016
On tap @ hurricane grill. ramato carico con riflessi ruggine. Aroma piuttosto intenso, frutta rossa, malto tostato, liquirizia e caramello. Lieve di prugna secca. Gusto dolce amabile, leggermente tostato, liquirizia e un filo di vaniglia /zucchero filato. Molto rotonda, poco accennata la luppolatura. poco carbonata ben nascosto il grado alcolico, non risulta troppo calda. Non molto equilibrata ma nel complesso piuttosto armonica.

Zacht zoet bier met tonen van drop en anijs. Vrij licht en makkelijke wegdrinker. Wat mij betreft een onderschat bier.

0,25l Flasche. Braunes Bier mit hellem Schaum. Sehr malzig-süsser Duft. Geschmack nach Toffee und Malz. Zu süss.

Bottle from a Carrefour Express near Place Rogier, Brussels. Pretty poor fare for a Belgian Dubbel. Very sweet: teeth are stinging. Pretty sickly. Not terrible obv. There are worse things, much worse, than a beer you don’t love. Paris.
