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.

SilkTork (5277) - 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.

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 (6336) - 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 (11259) - 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.

tderoeck (5148) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 29, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2011 23/07/2010 - 33cl bottle at home
Pours a little cloudy darkbrown beer with a big creamy light beige head. Aroma is amazing: dried prunes, raisins, red fruits, coffee and caramel. The palate is a little flat. Taste is mainly roasted malts, some mocha, caramel and acidic. Aftertaste is slightly acidic with hints of coffee. Contrary to what one would think after smelling the beer, it is not sweet at all, nor has it any hints of fruitiness. A bit of a disappointment.

imdownthepub (10653) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2010
Bottle conditioned, 330ml from Hopduvel Warehouse, Ghent. Chestnut withwhite head. Good flavoursome Dubbel with background spicing, some cinnamon perhaps, a little treacle, sugar note and a sweetish roast malt body. A late fruitiness. Really pleasing.

piscator34 (1996) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 26, 2009
Bottled sample via lubiere. Hazy amber in colour with fairly strong carbonation. Aromas are of cooked sugar, dates, and licorice. Caramel malts and pitted fruit dominate the palate, with some balance being offered by some floral and peppery spice notes. Medium bodied and somewhat quick finishing. A bit too fruity overall for my taste, but drinkable nonetheless.
