3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ YNWA, Kolding. Pours a deep red brown with a fine staying off white head. There is a display of good lacing. Aroma is fruity and sugary - slightly roasted. Flavour is very sweet - this betters, as the beer heats up. There are tones of herbs, but it is still a touch one-sided.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Keg on tap, 330 ml, Pasteurised, at Hotel Montagna del Mondo, Valkenburg, NL Limburg. Dark brown with cream head. This is more like it, an Abbey Dubbel with warming fruity notes, quite sweet again. There is a spiciness throughout which gets a bit overbearing, I’m really not sure about spicing beers, to round it off there is a sticky, toffee finish. Rich and full, but too sweet and spicy for me.

Colour is dark brown with a thin whit, slightly tanned head. Bit of friut spice and maltyness to the aroma. Flavor is sweet with phenols and esters. The body is full with lots of small sparkels. The finish is somewhat dry but leaves the impression of the full body. Overall a nice example of the style. BJCP - 18B.
