2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 7%. Very roasted acidic aroma. Almost clear dark brown colour. Small stable creamy tan head. The flavour is quite acidic - seems lactic. Must be flawed, but not entirely unpleasant. Still, not a dubbel.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Aroma in fresh version had vey distictive alcohol note, after 1,5 year it almost disappeared. In aroma also roasted malt, coffee, peaches, red fruits, some belgian notes from the yeasts. Nice, quickly disappearing head, brwon colour, very nice carbonation (lke in triple Komes). Taste is similar to aroma, medium body, low bitterness. In overall not a masterpiece, but after one year nice beer, far better than triple Komes.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours dark brown, with pour head, reduced to none. In aroma - first impression was cheap sparkling wine. But aroma was quickly blended with dark bread, plums and toast. In taste very dry and quite watery. More light, than medium body, thin texture with stickiness at the end. Average carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
When you’ll get a good, non-infected bottle of beer, it is not bad. Aroma of dark fruits, plums mostly, some roasted notes, chocolate. Pours dark brown/ruby, bit hazy with short head. Taste is mostly dark fruits with some roasted sourness and medium bitterness. Alcohol is not very well hidden, you can smell it and taste it as well, so better is to drink it at lower temperature

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aromaty karmelowe. W smaku podobnie, lekkie nuty palone. Podobne trochę do Krzyżackiego z Gościszewa. Ale bardziej gorzkie. Kolor ciemny ale przejrzysty. Piana średnio-pęcherzykowa słaba ale się utrzymuje i oblepia szklankę.

500ml bottle (Tuulensuu, Tampere)
Very sweet aroma, vakey, coffee and banana. Watery body. Dirty earthy powdery. Fruity esters a bit out of control. Finish is nice, good choco cake. Touch gluey. Not boozy, glue. Dry old book spines.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle. Dark brown with small head.
NOSE : aromas of toffee, chocolate and tea. Lactic aromas of milk and cheese. Burned tart.
SIP : The beer is almost flat. It’s oily with medium body. The beer has a very narrow complexity. It is sweet and it gets a typical delicate lactic acidity but nothing fancy. Finish has a very delicate bitterness. Let’s say it’s just sweet with flavors of toffee and milk coffee. Very sweet coffee.
OVERALL : nothing exciting and quite boring. Waste of space in my belly and since I have many other beers to rate I prefer not to overcharge my liver. Also ...I’m used to Belgian dubbels but this one has no such character. One good thing I might say is that it hides well the alcohol.
