Nice white frothy head that’s maintains for a good while. Sweet aroma. Lacking in body, soft drink like. Can’t see that this meets criteria for a dubbel. Disappointing beer

Mine is 6.5 ABV and has Pater Dubbel Ale on bottle. Its a decent Belgian ale. Not sure I would purchase again...there nothing that really makes it stand out.

Maakun (2923) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2016
Bottle at home 6.5%. Very dark brown with light bitten head and lots of lacing. Raisins, figs, some milk chocolate, old fruit skins, dried out red wine, a bit dusty, old coffee dregs. Quite a lot of ’old’ notes mixed with dried fruits and sugary aromas. Under medium sweet and light bitter. Medium bodied with a bit slick feel and soft carbonation.

Ingogringo (10) - SWEDEN - APR 23, 2016
Mörkbrun ale med stabilt gräddigt vitt skum. Lätt arom av malt och torkad frukt. Lätt sötma och toner av dadel, fikon i smak. God, lite starkare belgisk brown ale men lite tunn smak.
