2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at the Paters Vaetje, Antwerp. Poured a dark golden brown with a thin white head. The aroma is weak but dry and yeasty. The flavour is bitter with liquorice and a slightly metallic aftertaste. It's like a dark malt roasted regular De Koninck. I prefer the original.

damn! wasnt expecting this to be good, realy, but it was ! bought at wijnegemse drankenhal this winter. i ílikeí koninck but i like palm better. and i like palm better than dobbel palm, so, logicaly iíd like this the least.. well its actualy the best. they took all the good caracteristic tastes of a koninck, isoladed it, made it stronger ( dont know WHAT they did but this is what it tasted like to me ) and its absolutely very well done . i wouldnt always drink this but iíve tasted it withoud any regrets and iíl buy it again next year !
i did hear that this years version was good, but last years wastn.. so itís kinda depending on the year i gues...
