hauxe (441) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - SEP 25, 2016
Pours murky brown from the bottle. A light tan head lingers for much of the duration. Aroma is sweet red grape juice, yeast and spice. Taste is brittle bittersweet without much overall depth. A touch of fruitiness, some yeasty bready notes, and then something like watered down pure alcohol. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Drinkable for sure but not particularly refreshing or exciting.

Xstream (242) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2016
Ruikt naar caramel, stroop, drop, geroosterd mout, melk chocolade, koffie en nootjes. De body is medium dik met medium bubbels. Richting de finish krijg ik iets zurigs fruit mee met verder hetzelfde profiel, waar vooral de koffie en geroosterd, ietwat zurig, mout de boventoon voert met een licht bittertje. Blijft op zich op een prettige manier hangen, maar mist wel een beetje complexiteit. Prima dubbel, maar ’t mist net dat dingetje wat ’t speciaal zou maken.

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

Leighton (18695) - 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.

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 ...
