Expected way more from Emelisse. Well, this one is maybe great but it did not hit my tongue. Strong alcohol with pepper and maybe some caramel. Unusaul crispy and sharp feelings on the tongue. Caramel in the back but it does not develop that sweetish background. Good, decent piwo. Warming.

Aroma is soft caramel. The taste is caramel and a little bit bread. It is balanced, with showed alcohol.

small offwhite frothy head. fair lacing. mostly diminishing. muddy thick dark reddish-brown body. aroma: moderate malty, caramel, dark chocolate, mild coffee, raisin. if: heavy sweet. ff: heavy sweet light acidic bitter; long duration. palate: light medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic finish. Dulçor delicioso de uva-passa. Menos alcoólica que o padrão do estilo. Dulçor traz também toques maltados. Foge da concepção do estilo, o que não evita que seja uma deliciosa cerveja. Leve amargor balanceia perfeitamente o dulçor inicial sobrepujante. Leve acidez (lembrando ameixa fresca) surgida na segunda metade da cerveja também ajuda a balancear bem o dulçor. Bem no final da cerveja, a acidez cresce um pouco, ficando um pouco azedinha.190 s

Donkere roodbruine kleur, amper schuim. Ruikt lekker, wat zoetig. Smaakt te zoet, nasmaak is wel prettig. Prima dubbel

Aroma: at the first smell lots of alcohol, I mean LOTS. After a minute, some fruits, raisins, strawberry marmelade. Deep brown color, foam reducts into zero. Taste. Oh well. Alcohol again, medium bitterness with easy, pleasing finish. I can taste some coffee, especially dark bread. Beer was quite water-ish (?) and fizzy. It’s hard to tell do I like it. You should try it as a curiosity.

Barwa: czerwona/głęboko miedziana, lekko zmętniona. Piana kremowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, umiarkowanie gęsta. Dość szybko opadająca i pozostająca tylko na ściankach. Wysycenie niskie. Aromat: alkoholowy, estrowo - owocowy (rodzynki, suszone śliwki, wiśnie, jabłka) oraz fenolowy (goździki, może lekkie perfumy), na koniec nieco ciemniejsze słody. Smak: słodycz z owocową kontrą (głównie wiśnie i śliwki), do tego lekki karmel. Brak alkoholu czy chmielu. Kolejna propozycja z Emelisse nie prezentuje się niestety zbyt dobrze. Jak na dubbel jest moim zdaniem zbyt czerwona (choć barwa jest w sumie bardzo ciekawa) i za mało czekoladowa czy choćby karmelowa albo rodzynkowa w smaku. Przyzwyczaiłem się bowiem do piw "podwójnych" w stylu belgijskim. Do tego sprawia w smaku wrażenie jakby szorstkości. Z pewnością nie tego się spodziewałem.

Bottle. Pours hazy dark copper brown with airy but stable light tan head. Clear aroma of caramel malt, coffee and fruit. Sweetish flavour of caramel, malt and fruit, with pleasant, bitter notes of coffee beans and hops, ending rather dry and rough. Discernible alcohol presence. Nice. Neither too sweet nor sour. A decent Dubbel, that’s it.
