77ships (8038) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2013
33 cl. bottle sampled @ Bier Central. Reddish murky wood-ish, not a big fan of the colour with a slight beige head. Taste is of sweet malts, concentrated brown sugar, raisins, caramel, herbs, touch toast until overtaken completely in thick slightly marinated in aalchol dried dark fruits mixed with a good chunk of wild berries. Med. slightly messy body, not bad.

Countbeer (6185) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2013
Bottle: Served in an Ikea (?) taster: Medium to smaller sized beige vast and thicker yet somewhat lively foamy head on top of a cloudy red ruby colored beer with an amber tint to it. Aromas of toasted malts, perfume, flowers, blossom, marzepin, marsh mellows, sweet/liquorice wood, tea herbs, fruit like orange, raisin/prunes, berries and tangerine. Overall a sweet somewhat complex aroma. Very nice. Flavours of toast, barley malts, caramel, sweet apricot, prunes, raisin, figs, autumnal herbs and leaves, marzepin, bitter, hay and hebal toast, light yeasty, light chocolate and some sweet/liquorice wood tones. Aftertaste is bitter, toast, marzepin, caramel, barley malts and wood. Low to medium carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a creamy texture. The Graal for some reason never interested me to buy their beer, but for after tasting their ginger beer, I was pretty much blown away by the immense subtility that beer had. And now it looks like I experience it again with this beer. Very nice and even a bit complex.

bdunhill (255) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 24, 2013
This sweet Flanders Dubbel has a reddish appearance and a spice filled aroma. A flavorful abundance of caramel, raison and chocolate comes on the tongue and a slight lingering palate balances this well with breads and cheeses. Another fine Belgian beer to be remembered!

Pinball (11932) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle from beer planet. BBF 06/2011 (bought 09/2012 so a little dated this one) cloudy unclear brown, smooth small light brown head.dried fruty, yeasty, cellary aroma. sweet malty notes. Flavor is slightly oxidized, cellary, dried fruits, sweetness, yeast, sweetish and easy drinking dubbel with a little bit of spices in it. complex enough to be interesting, but doesn’t age that well. (this one didn’t).

Noctilucus (106) - All over Belgium, BELGIUM - JUN 29, 2012
Deep red-brown, unclear after adding the "fond", beige head; not that much foam. Nose is pretty strong with spices (like gingerbread), sugar, a whiff of alcohol. Almost smells like a port; has the nose of a stronger beer, also a bit fruity as in red fruits, e.g. raspberries. Taste: little carbonation, a bit of roasted character, sugars without ever being cloyingly sweet, caramel, spices. Feels a bit too light or weak in the taste, but then again this is only 6.5%. Still, it doesn’t live up to the expectations set by the nose. Aftertaste: smooth, slightly roasted, no sweetness but not a lot of bitterness either, again quite (or slightly too) soft. Nice taste though it lacks a bit of body to stand out from the crowd.
