3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, bought @ Bierzwerg.de.
Pours deep ruby-red with a small, staying, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has mild chocolate, prunes, plums, softly vinious. Highish carbonation, fairly light mouthfeel for the ABV. Flavour is fine, with dryish chocolate, some plums and raisins. A bit vinious and warming. Okay, even if it is a bit simple.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Clear nut brown, small head. Sweet and caramelly with medium body. Sticky and syrupy, simplistic and shallow. Like a parody of a US style attempt at a dubbel.

28/08/2011 33cl bottle @ home - BB: 9/6/12 (2011-412)
Little cloudy red brown to purple beer, beige creamy head, pretty stable, somewhat adhesive. Aroma: fruity, caramel, dried fruits, sweet cherries, chocolate milk, strong alcohol, raisings, bit vinous even, wood. MF: little carbon, very thick creamy texture, medium body. Taste: roasted malts, mocha, bit of caramel, fruity, touch of banana, soft bitterness. Aftertaste: citric acidity, alcohol playing on the tongue, more caramel, dry bitter ending. Spot on! This beer combines the typical caramel sweetness and dried fruits which are key for a dubbel, but also keeps it interesting enough through the sour and bitter hops.
