I did not care for this beer at all. I think that there is way too much chocolate going on in this medium complex brew.

dnicolaescu (1368) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - SEP 30, 2015
BOTTLE 33 CL at 6,5% ABV. Hazy red dark brown. Big beige head. A pretty common dubbel - toasted bread crust, light caramel malt sweetness and some spice (clove?). Also, some cereal sweetness with a touch of vomit. Easy drinking yet substantial body. Decent.

Stor smag. Den har karamel og fin smag af den belgiske gær. Den har også let bitterhed i eftersmagen.

anstei (429) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 4, 2015
75cl bottle. While having quite a soft aroma, the crisp and softly bubbly palate makes this malty and sweet beer very easy to drink. Almost too easy. And still very tasty at that!
