3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
300ml bottle (John Bull, Kuressaare)
Sweet brown-bready aroma, some raisins, fairly classic belgian. Nice brown, and viscous so the tiny bubbles rise very prettily, supporting a nice tight beige head. Very full palate, smooth and sweet, nearly slick. Very bready taste, some appley retronasals. Sweet. A little dirty too. Fairly boring dark dubbel.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Reddish-amber coloured, small stable ’n creamy off-white layer; sweetish candy-like and caramelly nose with a cherry-like fruitiness underneath; quite soft, moderate sweet flavour with both a delicate bitterness and a delicate acidity, barely medium bodied; slightly increasing bitterness in the vinous-fruity finish; well the extremely well hidden alcohol deserves an extra point. Not superb, but much better than expected…
