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.

Alengrin (195) - BELGIUM - JUL 24, 2014
The dark counterpart of Arend Blond and the successor of the old Rochus but not nearly as interesting and in my opinion a purely commercial move. Just another cliché dubbel, with the stereotypica aroma of caramel, coffee grounds, bitter chocolate and dark fruits, a sweetish and subduedly fruity taste on a malty basis, in the end with a slightly toasted bitterishness.

Countbeer (4321) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUN 2, 2014
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Medium sizes creamy creme head on top of a hazy brown to ruby colored beer. Aromas of iron, malts, watery prunes, some corn, some nuts, minerals and diapers. Flavours of porridge, toast, iron, malts, warm, old wood, strange bitters, some (rotten) oat, hint of nuts and some strange and not so tasty prunes... Aftertaste is bitter, nutty, malty, some hay and bread... Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied and a light watery warm texture. Couldn’t finish this beer, very unbalanced flavours!

corkyrory66 (528) - BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2014
Bière double de 6,5 % abv, fermentation haute et refermentée en bouteille. Couleur brun caramel foncé. Clarté nette. Bulles moyennes partout bien vives. Mousse beige claire, bien crémeuse, qui tient à 1 cm. Arômes de malt caramel, candi, prune fraîche, pointe légère d’épice. 1ère bouche souple avec une bonne prise sur du malt grillé et du houblon. Arrière-bouche assez pleine avec un peu d’épice et pelure d’oignon. 2ème avec beaucoup de sucre brun, candi, et une pointe houblonnée. Arrière-bouche assez simple et un peu courte. 3ème avec des fruits jeunes, du malt caramel. Arrière-bouche assez étale. La longueur est de texture toujours très souple, avec un peu d’herbes et de réglisse sur le malt. Les arrière-bouches ne sont par contre ni larges ni complexes. La levure est douce, belle, de niveau moyen. L’alcool est très modeste, accompagne sans rien développer. La finale est assez chaude, mais sans saveurs nobles. CONCLUSION : une bière sympathique, mais qui pèche par son manque de caractère et des arrière-bouches très simples. C’est le problème d’ailleurs de beaucoup de doubles … donc on ne peut jeter la pierre au brasseur ...
