Hazy dark brown with lots of particles Caramalt aroma like that of a dark lager. Flavor is soft, bready and caramel malt.

Marduk (4071) - Reval, ESTONIA - AUG 20, 2015
330ml bottle (7.5%). Slightly hazy copper color. Medium size, yellowish head, stays. Metallic, grainy, hop pellets, black pepper in aroma. Sweet, caramel, grainy, malty in taste. Sweet caramel malts in aftertaste. Feels raw. Tastes raw. Sugars cover alcohol well. Drinkable, but bit dull.

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.

pete4999 (1264) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 9, 2015
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. Id love to try more of their offerings.
