COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Ingredients: Hops, malt, water, yeast, sucrose, spices.

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.

33 cl.Bottle. Poured a deep brown color, with a small off-white foamy head with small lacings. Aroma has caramel malts, some dark fruits/raisin and sweet belgian malt with some notes of light spices. Taste is creamy, malty with hints of candi sugar, raisin, caramel, dry fruits and belgian yeast.

Douberd (1690) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle 330 ml at home, into a big tulip glass. ABV 6.5% Brown chestnut colour, seems quite clear, with nice activity in the glass. Head is tan in colour, with good height, maybe one and a half finger, good density too. Good retention as well, eventually collapses leaving light lacing around the glass and quite a bit of foam on the beer’s surface. Aroma is slighty lactic, has some wood and cork, red fruits and grapes. Very interesting aroma. After it has warmed up a bit some caramel notes seem to surface and maybe some toffee. Taste has a nce sourness in it, with grapes again, some more toffee now and light roasted malts, but still it’s not your typical dubbel. Red fruits dominate here, along with wood-cork and some spice like notes on the finish. Medium on the body with a good mount of carbonation and a light dryness on the palate. Overall this was quite nice, different than what I was expecting but still very good.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 6, 2014
Bottle @All My Vinyl Tasting, Edinburgh. Loved the nose, excellent spicy, sherbet with some apple fruit going on, really nice. Too sweet in the mouth with a fruity unripe apple thing going on.

Bottle at home. Hazy copper brown, big off-white head. Aromas of green apples and light spice. Sweet malt taste, more apples. Sticky finish. OK.

Brune tirant vers l’ambré, effervescence moyenne, col beige clair qui tombe vite. Caramel léger, sucre candi, mini amertume et... pas grand chose d’autre!

Gusher! Dark brown, creamy white foam. A lot of carbonation. Unbalanced beer. Aroma of caramel and dark fruit. Bit sweet, medium bitter. Not very good.

Bardzo dobre piwo, ktore rosnie w oczach. Chodzi mi oczywiscie o piane. Spora i drobinkowa metnosc, kolor ciemno rubinowo-bordowy. Piana niebywale trwala. Aromat sliwek i innych owocow suszonych. W smaku slodkawe ale nie przytlaczajace. Lekka wytrawnosc daje sie zaznaczyc na finiszu.

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg. Hazy orange brown with an off-white head. Malty aroma with lots of herbs. Nice full flavour with a taste that matches the aroma. Creamy mouthfeel. Nige dubbel.

Intriguing aroma, which hints at the enormous amount of spices including in this beer. Palate and look are below average. The color is unconvincing murky orange instead of the beautiful caramel I hoped to encounter. The taste is that of sweet and sour orange, together with lots and LOTS of spices, but not the preferable kind. The review below me sums it up pretty well. The taste reminded me of some funky still-riping mead-with-pepper I tasted last month.
