COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned and filtered keg.
Ingredients: Hops, malt, water, yeast, sucrose, spices.
Named after the original name of the brewery - De Gouden Arend (the Golden Eagle).
Arend Double has a warming sweet caramel flavour in combination with a subtle bitterness of hops. The full-bodied aftertaste turns this beer into a modern top fermented quality product.

mabel (7315) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2008
[1334-20080508] 330mL bottle. Sweet bourbon whiskey alcohol aroma. Hazy, dark amber body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head. Sweet slightly boozy malt flavour has a hint of raisin and a woody finish. Medium-full body is a bit boozy. Interesting in a pleasant way, well-blended.

scotty (1088) - SCOTLAND - JUL 5, 2008
A Ronnie beer. Slightly hazy, minimal head. Nice nose of crystal malt and sultanas, fairly full in body, with a remarkably clean palate, a bit on the sweet side, but I expected that. Cant say there’s much more to it, it’s not a bad brew, but it’s not a classic in my book. I’d certainly have it again, but as it’s an R.B. that’s gonna be unlikely!

jercraigs (8485) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2008
2008-05-08. Brown body with a modest beige head (3+). Sweet aroma of caramel or brown sugar soaked malt, dark fruit. Sweet flavour with lots of the dark fruit hinted at in the aroma. Sweet sugary undertones. Average plus palate. (3+) Pleasant and quite drinkable, but does not distinguish itself a whole lot from many other similar Belgian brews. Bottle courtesy of trade with Boutip

Ughsmash (7364) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2008
Bottled, BB 03/09. Poured rather clear reddish-copper with a well-formed cap of yellowy-beige head. The aroma picked up dusty banana and peppery yeast paired with sweet toffee, caramel, and a hint of chocolate.. soft impression that was entirely pleasant. The flavor was more geared toward the caramel, with dry toffee, floral notes, and herbs joining the uber-dry, dusty finish.. nice balance in here. Dry and medium-bodied on the palate, with OK balance.. a touch of sourness right at the end. Solid stuff.

Rastacouere (6159) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2008
Objectively speaking: A sweet and musty dubbel that takes drinkability seriously.
I like: Efficient palate: engaging carbonation, medium-bodied, still quite drinkable. Managed to feel complex enough despite its low ABV. Pleasant spicy yeastiness (anise, pepper). Adequately fruity, berry-like yet with a fair powdery chocolate impression. Its complexity remains in subtlety.
I dislike: The acetaldehyde from the aroma. No shining feature - a bit shy all throughout and finishing quickly.

beerbuzzmontreal (3488) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 15, 2008
Pours a reddish brown color with cranberry red highlights and a thin tan head. Aroma of berries, malt, sweetness, liquorice and spices. Good flavor of spices, liquorice, berries, malt and mild lingering sweetness. The body is light with a creamy texture and medium carbonation. It’s very interesting, it reminds me of Pannepot but not at the same quality level, this beer needs more body to move closer to excellence.

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2008
0.33 l bottle. Hazy dark amber color with diminishing head. Perfumed spice rack aroma with notes of ginger, orange, pepper and licorice. Gingery slightly berryish flavor with dull spicy and cidery notes.

FatPhil (10892) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 12, 2008
330ml bottle (Brugs Beertje)
Sweet fruity aroma. A bit fizzy and harsh, so needs swirling a fair amount. Freezer meltwater taste, grainy too. Fairly bitter, and no hint of 6.5% alcohol. Dry and nutty. Long nutty finish.
