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.

Brown body, light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, marmalade and some liqour like alcohol. Flavour is basicly berry juice. Watery.

rosenbergh (6682) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 23, 2011
330 ml bottle. From bierzwerg.de.
Hazy dark brown colour with small off-white head. Toffee, chocolate and marmalade fruitiness in aroma. Berries and some sourness in flavour. Thin. Disappointing.

Svesse (6065) - 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.

MoritzF (8464) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAR 21, 2011
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, amber colour with a medium-sized tanned foamy head. Moderately sweet and lemony fruity-sour aroma with light notes of cara-malt and yeasty spice. Sweet flavour with a tinge of sourness, medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Cara-malty taste with lemon-fruity and mildly spicy notes; sweet and slightly sour-fruity finish with a tinge of caramel. Okay but not overly impressive. 21.III.11

SilkTork (5216) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2011
330ml bottle from the Bitter End, Bromley. Rubbish really. It’s drinkable, but tastes like a home brewing experiment gone wrong. It’s really thin for a 6.5%, and the flavours are all over the place. There’s a touch of sharpness, touch of muddy spice, bit of sweetness. There’s nothing really likeable about it, though it’s not offensive to drink. I wonder if anyone buys a second bottle of this stuff. Nose of plastic. Do these guys actually know what they’re doing?

Sharp and sour brown beer. Has a dry bitter finish. Not complex but quite drinkable.

manuchampions (1236) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 9, 2010
Bottle shared with JerC (old rate). Dark copper colour on pouring. Wine like nose. Sweet, roasted hazelnut in flavour. Finish is pleasing and lasting. Decent.

douglas88 (5926) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 3, 2010
Bottle. Pours a cloudy brown color with a large off-white head. The aroma is sweet fruit, some caramel and candy. A unique dubbel in that it has a pretty sour character along with huge sweet strawberries, caramel, some brown ale elements. Enjoyable.

thewolf (11158) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Beer Planet, Brussels.
Pours muddy brown with a medium, frothy, off-white head. Aroma is bubble-gum sweet. Caramel, lots of Belgian sugar, coriander, red berries. High carbonation, kinda dry mouthfeel, slight watery. Flavour is light metallic, a hint of chocolate, caramel, some yeasty notes. Too high carbonation perhaps that gives off that metallic note.
