330 ml bottle. Pours clear dark copper with an off-white head. The taste is moderately yeasty (meat). Medium to full body with soft carbonation. The taste is rather one-dimensional and very sweet (sugar) with little other aromas. Slightly alcoholic finish. Still a decent brew.

Me like! Somehow Grimbergen got it ’right’ with their beers, that holds also for this ’double’ variant.

midovark (319) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - JUN 11, 2016
0.33 l bottle. Deep amber, or rather brown color with no head. Fruits, bread and malts in aroma. The taste is just like the aroma, pleasant fruity, and leaves a warm mouthfeel. Flat carbonation, medium body, easily drinkable. Could be a bit heavier on body, otherwise it’s fine.

L’ho comprata quasi "a scatola chiusa" perchè attirato (lo ammetto) dall’etichetta. Poi guardo gli ingredienti: prodotta da Carlsberg e con aggiunta di coloranti. parto quindi con un milione di pregiudizi. Ingiustificati. La birra si presenta più che ambrata decisamente bruna, con poca schiuma tendente alla nocciola. Profumo di cereali e caramello. L’aroma è evidentemente influenzato dall’aggiunta di caramello e zucchero, ed è davvero piacevole. Si sentono anche note di vaniglia, pane e cereali, anche se il caramello è predominante. Al palato sparisce il dolce e si presenta l’amaro, vagamente sentori di caffé e liquirizia, sempre caramellato. crendo davvero un bel retrogusto. Mi ha stupito, davvero una belga piacevole.

Juggernaut84 (197) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 26, 2016
Karamellmalzig und süß in der Nase, etwas trockener und dunkelmalzig im Geschmack der Abgang ist recht hefig und auch etwas mastig. Schmeckt mir recht gut ;)

GoddamnNoise (13) - Pontevedra, SPAIN - MAY 19, 2016
Aroma: caramel, coffee, light alcohol. Appearance: brown, low creamy head, low retention, irregular bubble sizes. Taste: heavy cloying sweetness, lightly bitter. Palate: creamy, average carbonation, long sweet caramel finish. Too sweet for my taste, but good beer to pair with chocolate deseerts or a good cheese.

Nice beer! Fits well after dinner with dessert! Chocolate, caramel taste with a liquor-sweet finish! Like Oreo ice cream with it!
