Ingredients: Caramel, Pilsen and Munich barley malts, and Saaz, Kent and Hallertau hops

Aroma of fruit, malt and some raisin or other dried fruit. Taste is much of the same, but including yeast and some caramel. Maybe mine was to cold in the beginning becouse the taste get better and better. I think this one was to carbonated.

TtV (362) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 1, 2016
Bottle 33cl. Dark brown, beige head that fades quickly. Beer is a bit watery. The aroma is sweet: brown sugar and fruits. The taste is not very complex: sweetish with a spicy touches. Nice but nothing special.

Biroholik (608) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - FEB 9, 2016
Kolor: Ciemny brąz. Minimalne rubinowe refleksy u podstawy.
Piana: Po otwarciu butelki gushing! Piana początkowo dość obiecująca, wysoka, drobna, kremowa. Po jakiś czasie opada, ale ładnie krążkuje. Sporo firanek pozostaje na ściankach, jak również kilkumilimetrowa obrączka.
Zapach : Zbożowy, słodowy, chmielowy. Wszystkiego po trochu. W aromacie śliwki, rodzynki, winogrona i toffi.
Smak: W smaku estry owocowe. Głównie ciemne owoce. Trochę śliwek, moreli i rodzynki. Na finiszu lekko winny i kwaskowaty posmak. Goryczka krótka i przyjemne. Alkohol dobrze ukryty.
Wysycenie: Wysokie (aż za bardzo!).
Podsumowanie:
Bardzo ciekawy dubbel z interesującym profilem smakowym. Od zbożowego, przez słodowy na chmielowym skończywszy. Piwo bogate w doznania smakowe. Corsendonk​ otrzymywał wiele pozytywnych recenzji z całego świata za to piwo. Jedynym mankamentem jest zbyt wysokie wysycenie. Butelka pięknie malowana z tłoczonymi białymi napisami na szkle.

Piwo ciemnobrązowe, nieprzejrzyste. Dość trwała ładna piana. W aromacie słodkie, suszone owoce, ziołowość i lesistość. W smaku karmel i paloność. Wysokie wysycenie, pełne.

Vells (1322) - Rīga, Latvija, LATVIA - JAN 26, 2016
Pleasant surprise. Was expecting simple dark beer, but got well balanced, interesting and quite bold Dubbel. Complex maltiness that provides awesome balance, light toast, some caramel, bready, some dark dried fruits, light yeast, some floral hops. Moderate to light sweetness with light bitterness. Pleasant

Beetje droge dubbel. Weinig zoet, hoppige smaak. Smaak gebrande mout alleen op afdronk merkbaar. Geen slecht bier maar niet zo’n mijn ding. Beetje waterig.
