3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a deep dark brown with medium-laced head. Looks delicious, and didn't disappoint with a hefty nose of malt, brown sugar, and dark fruit. Pretty sweet, but not obnoxiously so. The mouthfeel was smooth and balanced, and it went well with a hot dinner of chicken. Really solid. My next session dubbel- as I have bought a slab of these. Who would have thought the Netherlands could take it up to the Belgians like this?

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a huge off-white rocky head that mostly lasts. Body is hazy and sparkling, hue is dark amber. Aroma contains grain, caramel, lemon, raisin, cherry and cassis and ruby port. Flavor is acidic all the way, with a sweet finish. Palate is light to medium, texture is watery and carbonation is soft. Not very complex, not very balanced (too acidic for my taste).

Aroma: Karamel tonen met lichte hoptonen en een mooie zoete kruidigheid robijnrood /bruin van kleur (licht troebel) smaak pallet is niet erg breed maar wel in balans. Doordrinkbaar zonder al te veel uitdaging. Afdronk middel lang.

Normally not my thing, but i was curious so tried it. Liked the dark and somewhat sweet taste. This one may actually take me away from my white beers from time to time

I was very supprised about the good tasting of the beer. Furthermore the overall appearance and the style of the beer is very "goodlooking".
