Bottle. Dark brown to ruby red colour with average big beige head, that sits down slowly. Aroma is medium intensive: roasted malts, caramel, brown sugar, dark fruits, mostly plum and dates. Rich (not so) sweet taste with moderate bitter aftertaste.

33 cl bottle. Points beautiful dark amber with small head. Aroma and flavor is full of dried fruit, especially raisins, and some toffee/chocolate. Some bitterness in finish. A bit overly sweet for my liking, but a well composed brew nevertheless.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was poured into a chalice.
The appearance was a nice looking dark amber to brown color with a half finger white foamy head that dissipated rather quickly. The lacing was fairly light.
The smell had a good amount of spiced apple, light dates and plums. There was a decent earthy sweetness over and under throughout.
The taste had a decent sweet to spicy conglomeration of sorts which lead to the same sort of aftertaste with a slight toffee added in there. The finish was slightly dry.
On the palate, this one sits about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionable aspect about it. The carbonation seems about moderately appropriate.
Overall, for the most part, this was a good Dubbel worthy of having again.

Nøttebrun farge med et hvit såpeaktig skum som raskt la seg som en ring. Søtlig aroma av malt, frukt, gjær og sukker. Smaken følger aroma med en fin ettersmak og medium fylde.
