4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
That's my kind of beer, very good taste, a bit of malt, fruit and caramel. A good balance between the sweet and the bitterness. Dark with a nice head.

Bottle. Clear, dark amber colour with a large tan head. Nice aroma of malts, caramel and a little fruit. Coffee, chocolate and roasted malts in the flavour. Quite highly carbonated, medium bodied. Nice sharp bitter finish. Very good.

Smells nice, a little raisins, looks good. A nice simple dubbel, not real heavy or sweet. Good, but not great.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark amber colour, with a red light; generous head. Nice aroma of malt and roasted malt, some caramel too when warmer; some alcohol. Good body, sweet malt balanced by the roasted malt and caramel. Correct bitterness ending in a pretty long palate.

Dark brown with a white head this beer has good, sweet chocolate aromas. Coffee and plain chocolate are to the fore in terms of flavour, whilst the finish is dry and bitter. Dubbel by numbers? Perhaps, but it got it right.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Has a nice deep reddish/brownish color and a splendid malty aroma. The flavor first comes sweet and ends up with a taste of lemon

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Bottled 0,33L. Much creamy head, bulky and supporter of discreet persistence. Beautiful dark brown color, much fraught and impenetrable. Decidedly alcoholic aroma with pleasant flowery notes, roast malt and stum. Sweet and spiced taste, solid and fraught body with aged notes. Much harmonious and wrapping with wine cellar and aged grapes notes on the end.
Thanks to Emma for this one.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown with a large off white head. Delightful leathery, spicy, yeasty, wet dog aroma. Taste is a bit flat in comparison. A little malty sweetness and some alcohol, but mainly a restrained dryness with a bit too much fizz.

On tap at Waggon and Horses, Halesowen. Dark brown, with a big beige heed. Smells a smidge sour. Taste is a blended mouthful of sweet sugar, souring berry and cakey yeast. Clean, not the most complex dubbel, but tasty. Perhaps too cold.
