Dark brown, with nice head. Really nice nose and malty yet not too sweet body. Dubbels are not my favorite but this one is really nice.

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

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.

33cl bottle on 16-Dec-2016 in a long stemmed tulip glass. A dark redfish brown in volour with a thick tan coloured head. Aroma of dark fruits, malt and molasses. Full body and medium carbonation. Flavour of caramel, dark fruit, malt, hops and spices. Light bittersweet finish.

God og spændende øl, der varmt kan anbefales. Gode smagsnuancer, med lidt for meget karamel.

Bottle (6.5%) from Tallinna Kaubamaja. BB 26/08/18. Pours ruby brown with a creamy light beige head. Good retention and lace. The aroma is candi sugar at first, then rather quickly softening to more malty and toasty, with notes of dark (dried) fruits and bitter forest berries, with a spicier (kind of herbal, grassy) side also opening up. Pine needles, too, perhaps. And a hint of cinnamon at times? Tastes caramelly-toasty-roasty, nutty, moderate sweet with a bit of herbal and berry-like bitterness following. Also, at times the tiny sweetness of cinnamon. Body lightish to medium; very crisp carbonation, which prevents it from any stickiness that I’d associate with the caramelly character. Pretty (nutty) dry on the palate, with a soft texture. It’s pleasant, as well as interesting, but unfortunately I can’t say I’m a big fan...

Bottle. Deep amber color with a medium sized foamy off-white head. Aroma of yeast, sugar and vegetables. Medium sweet taste with some bitterness. Medium to full body.

Fördjupande läsning hittar man i min recension av Corsendonk Blanche. Om den här kan man tillägga att den är ett par pinnhål bättre, men den skrupelfria affärsmodellen lämnar en dålig eftersmak i munnen. Anor är inget man kan - eller borde kunna - köpa för pengar, inte ens i vårt genomkommersialiserade tidevarv.

Bottle. Dark brown wood appearance with brown foam. Sweet toffee aroma. Malty sweet taste with caramel toffee notes and a touch of hopy bitternes.

SkillsFactory (368) - ITALY - DEC 20, 2015
Rossa scurissima con riflessi color rubino, schiuma beige di persistenza medio-bassa. Aroma di coriandolo, leggera cannella, banana matura, caramello, note tostate, lievemente vinosa. Al palato sempre coriandolo, banana matura meno in evidenza mista a note di uva passa e frutti rossi. La coda acquista complessità man mano che la birra si scalda: note tostate e di cacao, leggero erbaceo, nocciola tostata, lieve grado di acidità, il tutto discretamente persistente. Corpo medio, medio-pieno, ben carbonata.
