leghorn99 (205) - Livorno, ITALY - MAY 2, 2015
Si presenta di un bel colore marrone con una bella schiuma, compatta, color crema, dalla buona persistenza. Al naso in evidenza sentori maltati, dolci note di frutta matura, frutta scura e acceni speziati. Al palato ancora tanta dolcezza, frutta scura (prugne, datteri, fichi), malto, caramello, uvetta; donano un corpo pieno e una struttura oleosa. carbonazione leggera. Un bella rivisitazione dello stile belga.

maekchu (3323) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 8, 2015
Bomber. Thanks to KyotoLefty. Yeasty nose with dark sugar and something like cinnamon. Dark brown with a thick rocky head. An immediate clean malty sweetness. Gets rough and playful in mid palate, also a bit down and dirty. Lightly metallic. Finishes with a small fruity perfumey note. Medium body. Very interesting flavor changes throughout the palate.

KyotoLefty (8924) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 4, 2015
Bottle. Cloudy dark brown with a tall, fine head. Nose of chocolate, caramel, fudge, raisins, plums, spices. Roasty chocolate flavor, lots of brown sugar. Goes from very sweet to super spicy bitter. Tiingly, spiritzy and light-ish body. Ends very spicy, almost like chili peppers. Decent.

lello4ever (559) - ITALY - FEB 8, 2015
Mia prima birra di questo birrificio italiano, assolutamente soddisfatto da questa loro ale belga. Il colore è marrone e la schiuma beige e pannosa, di media persistenza. Al naso note fruttate e dolci, al palato caramello, malto, frutta e in generale una equilibrata dolcezza. Alcool e frizzantezza giusti, nel complesso un’ottima birra nel suo genere, non spicca ma si presenta davvero bene.

Kosmokrator (813) - ITALY - SEP 12, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2015 Scuro color bruno con riflessi rossastri e un pannoso velo di schiuma beige mediamente persistente. Sentori di zucchero caramellato, frutta cotta e liquirizia; gusto dolciastro con note di uvetta, albicocca, malto e caramello ed un finale amarognolo e leggerissimamente abbrustolito. Corpo medio, effervescenza debole, struttura "appiccicosa"; birra discreta ma pasticciata.

czar (7371) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 23, 2014
from bottle at mondial 2014, mtl. unclear light brown pour, orange tint, with a nice slightly creamy beige-orange cap, some retention and lacing. burnt caramel, sweet toasted malts, booze - fusel too, some fruitiness - plain raisins, fairly spicy too, sweetness - brown sugar, cola and wort, iron traces. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily, short grassy-spicy finish. unconvincing dubbel or belgian strong.

MartinT (9063) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Nutmeg and star anise surge atop this Christmas-y brew, as fruity undertones and prickly effervescence enhance the festive approach.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the purplish brown.
-The yeast character is overthrown by the spiciness.
-Malts do contribute some raisin-y sugars.
-This is a very professional brew, but it is too spice-laden for my tastes in Dubbels.

Bottle.
