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.

BeerViking (2948) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2015
Deep dark brown with a fine lacing head, malty sweet nose reminiscent of a malt drink, with candy sugar and faint plum notes. Rich, honey-sweet and fruity, with caramel and a lightly dry edge. Decent.

Cerveza de color marrón con una cabeza de color blanquecino. Aroma frutal, a malta, lúpulo y con notas de alcohol. Sabor afrutado y amargo, buena combinación, excelente cerveza.

Bottle. Pours a typical Dubbel. Aroma: nice sweet mix of plums, bubblegum, hint of nutmeg, hint of sour. Nice. Taste is relatively sweet: taffy, hint of cream, hint of coffee beans, honey, roasted malts. A little too sweat for my taste. Aftertaste is sticky and relatively dry.

Alengrin (2939) - BELGIUM - JAN 5, 2015
Long time ago since I last tasted this so this rating is based on old notes; deep chestnut brown beer with medium off-white head and sweet taste of caramelly malts, biscuit, candi syrup, little hop bitterness, metallic and artificial feel. Very industrial, too bland and too sweet for my taste.

Alusmamuts (792) - LATVIA - JAN 2, 2015

Sissio (824) - Orsenigo, ITALY - DEC 15, 2014
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.
