Gangstergafje (699) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2015
The beer has a nice dark brown color with a orange glow. The beer pours a thick layer of foam, which disappears quickly. There isn’t much foam remaining on top of the beer. The beer doesn’t have a very strong aroma. There is a little sweet aroma of alcohol, just strong enough to be nice and not be overwhelming. There is also a nice roasted barley aroma. This roasted barley forms the link between the aroma’s in the smell and the taste. The taste is sublime. It has this bitter dark chocolate flavor of roasted barley. There is also a little sweetness of alcohol, really nice to balance the bitter roast. The beer has everything. Bitternes, sweetness, a little sour, very good.

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 ...

Little cloudy red brown to purple beer, beige creamy head, pretty stable, somewhat adhesive. Aroma: fruity, caramel, dried fruits, sweet cherries, chocolate milk, strong alcohol, raisings, bit vinous even, wood. MF: little carbon, very thick creamy texture, medium body. Taste: roasted malts, mocha, bit of caramel, fruity, touch of banana, soft bitterness. Aftertaste: citric acidity, alcohol playing on the tongue, more caramel, dry bitter ending. Spot on! This beer combines the typical caramel sweetness and dried fruits which are key for a dubbel, but also keeps it interesting enough through the sour and bitter hops.

Richiama chiaramente lo stile di abazia, pur mantenedo il carattere e la luppolatura che contraddistinguono questo fantastico birrificio.

danielyabu (1549) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - MAR 30, 2014
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

Roodbruin biermet witte schuimkraag. Geuren van mout, caramel, hop. Smaken van mout, caramel, noten, kruiden. Een zoet-bittere smaak met dito afdronk en een wat olie-achtige textuur van het bier zelf. Bijzondere dubbel en lekker!

A little sour in the nose. First sip shows the rich malts, some dried red fruits, a little sugar, some hidden spices and a very nice little bitter aftertaste. It has not that much carbonization and it is a little sticky. Very well done dubbel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy (iOs)

330 ml bottle. Aroma with loads of plum, apricot, alcohol. Taste reminding more of plum wine than beer, a bit tangy and alcohol. Nice beer
