minutemat (1497) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2014
330ml bottle as ’Speciale Editie Dubbel’ 6.8%. I assume this is the same, apart from the slightly higher ABV. Pours deep chestnut brown with creamy off-white head. Aroma of malt, taste is malty with sweet toffee and some dark fruits. Very nice dubbel.

Lele (104) - Padova, ITALY - AUG 15, 2014
Dal colore del mogano e dalla schiuma poco persistente. Aroma maltato poco pronunciato. In bocca si avvertono del maltato e dell’amarognolo insieme, ma poco pronunciati. Birra gradevole, ma di poco carattere. Senza particolari difetti, ma neanche particolari pregi, non si fa ricordare. Servita fresca.

NosirIwont (1954) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle. 6.5%. As ’Grimbergen Double-Ambrée’. Best before 03.15. Pours a clear copper/amber with a light tan head. Good lacing. Aroma is tart, bordering sour, and fruity. Sweetish with a malt note in the background. Spicy, dark fruit note as it warms. Flavour is sweetish and spicy, with a dark fruit note. Same finish, tart and with a lingering light grassy note. Slight metallic feel to the palate. Overall okay, but nothing special. 07.08.14.
