3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, snifter. Deep brown hue with maroon edges. Enormous, frothy, creamy, light tan head that’s fairly well lasting. Chocolate, walnuts (with husks), dusty and doughy yeast, medicinal, red grapes, meaty, lettuce, sanguine. There’s some good stuff here, but, underneath…strange things. The strange things are mostly in the back, but still. Moderately sweet, lightly acidic (tart) flavor. Moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter finish. Flavor is nice though, most of the oddities are not present. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours an amber brown with a big off-white head and an aroma of fresh fruits, slightly acid, hops and some malts. The flavor is not too sweet, there’s some notes of roasted malts, toffee, sweet chocolate, mild hops and vinegar. Not too bad.

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?

Wow, wat een geweldige dubbel is dit. In de neus ruik je mooie geuren van zoet. De smaak deed me aan lichte caramel en confeite kersen denken. Ook in het glas mooi donker en een mooie schuimkraag.
