330ml bottle at home. Dark brown with a full tan head. Medium body with low to moderate carbonation. Nice bitter and sweet tones. Roasted malts, caramel, raisin, spices and herbs. A great tasty abbey dubbel, which normaly is not my type of beer at all.

Pepinis (98) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 15, 2014
Cerveza de color ambar oscuro y de reflejos cobrizos. Buena formación de espuma y buena persistencia. Su aroma es muy afrutado, recordando a frutas rojas y negras con un alto grado de maduración, lo que hace indicar también la alta presencia alcohólica aunque en boca se disipa y queda muy bien integrado. También son perceptibles notas de madera. El cuerpo es medio y en base al estilo necesita un poco más de densidad. Carbonatación media-baja. El retrogusto es muy maltoso, dulce y seco a la vez. (Botella 330 ml)

Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2014
Dubbel, Belgian-style abbey beer, tasted when it was still brewed at De Halve Maan in Hulst; dark brown, sweetish caramelly taste, bit toasty, dark fruits, quite thin mouthfeel, alcohol noticeable in the finish and not well-hidden. It’s impressive how Emelisse has grown since this.

MonsterMagnet (1228) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark amber with an off white head. Aroma: caramel, light roast, earthy. Taste: caramel, prunes, raisins, dried apricot, nuts, bread. Medium sweet, light bitterness. Light-medium body, medium carbonation. It does have something going for it, but feels rather thin.

angelkostvo (1166) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 20, 2014

Hanoi (849) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2014
Nose is hazelnut, slight caramel, little sugar. Taste is nut, leading to coco, slight burnt sugar, light toffee. Mouthfeel is very thin. It avoids being oversee which sinks some abbey’s but it lacks depth beyond a certain nutty amiability.
