Nice dubbel beer, but nothing special though. Warm tones but it lacks some sweetness

Leighton (17473) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2016
Bottle at home in London - sourced from Beermerchants...or maybe Kris Wines. Aged two+ years. Pours mostly clear amber with a creamy, tan head that quickly settles into a film, leaving moderate lacing. Lightly tangy fruits in the nose, berries, figs, some brown bread, toasted sugars, toffee. Medium to heavy sweet flavour (but not cloying), with somewhat sugary and lightly doughy bread, more toffee, gooey caramel, dates and figs, very mild earthy bitterness. Full bodied with average to lively carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish, with ripe, lightly tangy and leathery berries, faint metal, old wood, more toffee, bread, dates. It hits all the right notes, although perhaps not with much gusto.

corkyrory66 (1265) - BELGIUM - FEB 1, 2016
Double de 7,5% abv, pour 17,3° plato, avec seulement 18 ebu. Levure de Westmalle. Exemplaire d’un an environ. Couleur brun roux moyen (ebc 45). Clarté nette. Bulles fines à moyennes, partout, vives. Mousse brun clair, fine, stable à 2 mm. Arômes de malt torréfié, tarte aux prunes, pointe de figue, de nougat et de massepain. 1ère bouche très souple à l’entame assez maltée, avec du candi. Arrière-bouche assez dense pour une double, douce, longue. 2ème avec malt cara et choco, pointe de candi, belle rondeur. Arrière-bouche très agréable, soft. 3ème au malt un peu plus marqué, et quelques fruits. Arrière-bouche très équilibrée, pas naïve du tout. Longueur avec un développement assez impressionnant pour une double, fruits mûrs, malt, mais quelques arrière-bouches un peu plus légères. Jambes marquées. Levure douce, fine, un peu épicée, très grande ligne. Alcool bien, très correct pour une double, il soutient le tout. Finale un peu en dessous, même si on y trouve une pointe de liqueur. CONCLUSION : double très douce, voire même un peu softy … mais elle est très bien faite, et dans son style elle mérite toutes les louanges, très probablement grâce à la levure de Westmalle ...

Mooi dubbel bier met een duidelijk aanwezige smaak van geroosterde mout. Licht koffieachtig, notig. Zoetigheid met een hoppige afdronk. Lekker bier.

mariuspoenari (1104) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2015
Dark caramel look with a very fine head that gives way to an even finer lacing. Smells like a Belgian ale aright, with dark fruit and strawberries and caramel and all that. The taste follows through, with caramel, toffee, strawberry jam and a bitter hop aftertaste. Decent dubbel, I’d say.

TtV (371) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 11, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Dark brown with a ruby glow. Off white head. Aroma of fruit and malts. The taste is nothing as expected. It starts mildly bitter and develops into a frenzy of fruits, spices and bitterness. The aftertaste leaves a glow of alcohol.
