Draft at Emelisse. Pours murky, muddy, ugly brown with a big light-beige head. Aroma is sour, oud bruin, some dark fruit, yeast. Dominant candy sugar force, can't this do with less freaking sugar?, dry, light bitterness.

(Keg at Viisi Penniš, 20150220) The beer poured muddy brown and cloudy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had candi sugar, butter and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were kandi sugar, malts, grass, chocolate and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. The strong diacetyl makes me wonder whether this beer is in its proper condition. Nice taste but somewhat off-putting aroma.

Hazy amber brown colour with a long lasting head. Caramel and malty sweetness with some fruity notes. Taste is light, finish is a bit spicy.

Prachtig aroma met een mix van caramel noten chocolade. Kleine schuimkraag die opvallend licht van kleur is, wolkachtig van type. Mooi mistig donker bruin bier, prachtig en bijzonder om te zien. Choco koffie achtig droog en bitter zoetig van smaak. Voelt vrij dun (carbonatie) en waterig aan wat helaas wat afbraak doet aan het geheel. Heel bijzondere dubbel.

Roodbruin biermet witte schuimkraag. Geuren van mout, caramel, hop. Smaken van mout, caramel, noten, kruiden. Een zoet-bittere smaak met dito afdronk en een wat olie-achtige textuur van het bier zelf. Bijzondere dubbel en lekker!

330ml brown bottle from Bitter Virtue, Southampton for £2.90. 7.5% abv. I like this sort of beer. Playing around with malt and yeast. Yummy. Thereís blood and chocolate and chalk and yeast and a lovely sweetness in a dry palate and soon its all gone. Thereís raspberry and deep cherry jam in a bready, musty malt. This is a beer you want to linger and savour, but itís so yummy you just hoover it up in no time at all. Thereís nothing especially interesting or particularly scrummy about the beer, but it just works for me. Itís a little rough and dirty, and tastes alive and authentic, and I love that. I would happily consume bottles of this night after night.

Drinking from a 33 cl bottle. A fruity, caramel aroma. The unclear brown beer has a medium brown head. In the taste, caramel, alcohol, coffee. Low carbonated.

Una buona dubbel, ben strutturata e corposa. Al palato ben caramellata con buona presenza dei luppoli. non troppo alcolica
