larsga (6765) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2008
Smallish offwhite head. Hazy amber body with fast carbonation. Fruity, yeasty wild berry aroma with yoghurty notes, somewhat artificial. Dry yoghurty wooden wild berry taste, again somewhat artificial. Mouthfeel a little watery. Aftertaste is much the same. Disappointing, and not really very enjoyable. (0.33l bottle at Cardinal.)

Fin (8410) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2008
Bottle shared at Vale Brewery 31-01-08 Poured dark brown with off white frothy head, didn’t get to try much of this but what I did was most enjoyable, chocolate ran through this as did some vanilla, sweet malts on the nose, a tasty beer.

MoritzF (8726) - looking for a flat around Munich, GERMANY - JAN 29, 2008
(33cl bottle) Hazy, bronze colour with a mid-sized, light-beige foamy head. Sweet, slightly yeasty and moderately toasty malt aroma with a touch of chocolate, also restrained fruity and quite spicy, partly ethereally (peppermint). Moderately sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a medium carbonation. Yeasty, slightly toasted malty taste with notes of chocolate, spicy phenols and shy fruity notes; quite short, sweet-bitter and toasty finish. Likeable (29.01.08).

jmm1 (131) - Andorra la Vella, ANDORRA - JAN 19, 2008
33cl bottle. Dark amber cloudy body with a nice puffy beige head. Bready nose with subttle tones of clove and caramel. A slight acid approach in mouth with some sweet roasted malts, and hops bitterness at the end that leaves a coffee-like aftertaste. Medium-high carbonation with a light body cause some effervescences that disturb the complexity of the flavors which is a pity. Could have been a good dubbel but is an underachiever because of that lack of body and a too high carbonation, the brewer should tone this down to make a more serious beer with less pops.

Sigmund (5795) - Tau, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2008
330 ml stubby bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. BB 0608. ABV is 6.5%. Refermented in the bottle. Copper coloured beer (clear first, cloudy when the yeast is poured in the end), large tan head with an orangey hue. Very nice aroma of spices, candi sugar, yeast and raisins. Soft mouthfeel. The flavour is moderately spicy with some caramel and toffee, lacks hops. The finish is kind of "empty", relatively light bodied for its strength. Still a nice and drinkable dubbel, but could have been better.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - JAN 1, 2008
(on bottle) Light redish/brown, white head. A simpel aroma of blackcurrant and malts. High carbonation and a waterish body, with taste of more graisn; not that fancy. The finish is light, without any estertraces. There is a late-finish with some chocolate and dry fruit.

Darker amber to brown coloured beer with a lot of carbonation and an average off-white head. Malty roasted full aroma. Full palate. Finish is bitter roasted little bit short, wattery. Better when yeast on the bottom is poored out. Medium one.
