2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
