Bottle from Den Gouwen Aar @home Pours dark brown, medium offwhite foamhead, good lacing. The aroma is malty, caramel, roasty. Taste is a good balance between sweet and bitter, not too much on either side. Medium body, medium carbonation. Finish is not abrupt and only a little bitter. Great beer, for many occasions.

eduardovl (865) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle served in Chimay chalice. A: Pours a dark brown cloudy color forming a huge and very fluffy beige head. Medium retention, however, it never disappear totally and leaves some lacings S: Quite spicy for a Dubbel. Smells Belgian yeasts, bready malts, coriander and brown sugar T: Follows the nose: Belgian yeasts, brown sugar, brown bread, spices (coriander) and caramel malts. Very smooth and balanced Dubbel beer M: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Milt earthy hoppy aftertaste O: Very drinkable. Excellent Dubbel [ BA Review @ 4/6/2012 ]

"nice aroma and great flavor. worthy of it’s perch atop the style. slightly different and more complex than most or all dubbles i’ve had before, but hard to put a finger on. maybe more dark fruit and or a touch of vanilla in the flavor, yeast and sweet malts. deeeelicious. thanks John, this one’s a winner."
