mike_77 (3222) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2007
Deep brown colour with quick fading head. Taste is quite thin, lacks body. Flavour is very sweet with little malt or hop coming through. More complexity on aftertaste with some caramel and floral notes followed by a warming alcohol feeling.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAR 24, 2007
Bottled: Pours a deep brown with a ruby hue. The large frothy tan head fades to a stable one-finger size. The aroma is extremely metallic, with hints of caramel and roast. Not too appealing. Sweet flavor, with some root beer characteristics (sassafras). It’s also extremely metallic with a strange, roasty bitterness. Maybe I had a bad bottle, or a mis-treated bottle, but this Dubbel wasn’t enjoyable at all.

omhper (19667) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2007
Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear deep ruby, majestic cloud-like head. Fruity nose with dried plums and lemon. Sweet and medium bodied with lots of perfumy soap and an unusual estery apricot flavour. Some soothing caramel mixes with dextrose. Drying finish with low bitterness. Despite all flavour it feels mild. Complex, but with some drawbacks.

Svesse (6174) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2007
(Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Dark ruby colour with firm, creamy, beige head. Fruity, yeasty nose with dried fruit, prunes and caramel. Malty, fruity taste with sweet notes of cherries, dried fruit and blood oranges turning into a malty finish with nuts, chocolate and toffee. On the sweet side, with distinct macro character (i.e. hardly no unique character at all), but still rather tasty.

NotWthoutStout (31) - Wharton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 9, 2007
Bottle - Poured a beautiful dark mahagany/deep copper hue with a huge frothy head that lasted quite a while. The appearance really got my hopes up, The mouthfeel is nice at first smooth with good body like you would expect from a malty beer but then too much carbonation (and I pour my beer hard from high to get rid of the carbonation) . In the smoothness there is the carmel, some dark fruits but it all transits too fast into a very short finish that too quickly becomes yeasty, & astringent. Especially the carbonation kept hiding what I could tell should be a more complex flavour and I kept getting left with a bit of metalic after taste. I will revisit this one as it has high potential and may have just been an off batch. It drinks easy, maybe a little too easy as it goes down very fast - possibly in the search for the flavour I keep expecting from such a great looking beer.

Amber/brown. Pours nicely clear. Malty aromas ... few hops. Hints of dried frut and caramel throughout. Slightly oily and an almost non-existent finish.
