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.

lusikka (5324) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 12, 2011
330 ml bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere.
Pours a dark reddish brown colour with a small thick head. Aroma of sweet fruits, raisins and refreshing citrus. Flavour of sweet malts, fruits, raisins and some metallic notes. Medium bodied, rough foamy and thin mouthfeel and a dry finish of sweet fruits and malts. Nothing special.

mike_77 (2714) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2011
Medium brown colour, very silky head. Very low carbonation. Some oakiness comes through in the aroma. The head is quite sour on the lips. The mild malty flavour is quickly washed away by a quite citric, mildly acidic flavour. Later, a warming aftertaste.

Svesse (5845) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2011
(Bottle, Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm) Reddish brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with dark bread, dried fruit, raisins and caramel. Slightly spicy with a light acidity. Malty, roasted taste with notes of dark bread, ryvita, caramel, dried fruit, raisins, burnt sugar and a slightly spicy finish with a mild bitterness. More than medium body, with some sweetness. Clean, but a bit generic. Enjoyable.
