courtesy of Thomas Krüsi - hazy dark brown beer with a little foam left; correct lacework; nutty and caraelish aroma, light toasted with notes of molasses; full-bodied, quite sweet and thick; long caramelish finish with notes of prunes and molasses - deceptively simplistic and raw

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from a local Albert Heijn. The beer is dark amber colored and pours a cream colored head, with nice carbonation.
The aroma is very fruity and yeasty, with tones of cherries and strawberries, also a little raisins and caramel. In the background light tones of roasted malts.
The taste is creamy and soft. The CO2 is well balanced with the full sweetness of candy and caramel. In the background some nice bitters are noticable.
The finish is light bitter with tones of roasted malts and long noticable. Perfect dubbel, I want another one.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle (Uba ja Humal, Haapsalu) - thanks Marduk!
Stodgy aroma, some solvents - pear drops. Later mashier, maltier and sugarier. Nice deep red, large tight sticky pale head, plenty of intricate lacing. Taste is sweet and mashy. My first thought is "this might be nice if they fermented it". Sweetish smooth palate, carbonation barely adequate against that, but there. Pretty dull, to be honest. Smothers the alcohol behind the sweet mashiness. Finish has some pleasant noble hops. Poor belgian, needs some attenuation.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Arendsnest in Amsterdam. Decided I wanted something a little darker and went with this. Not bad, pretty much your standard classic dubbel. Dark fruits, some spices, nothing out of the ordinary but you can tell the skill is there. I’d love to try more of their offerings.
