Aroma of malt and light hints of dark fruit. Color is deep brown with minimal head. Sweet beginning with grape, and perhaps a bit of dark stone fruit. There is a background of chocolate and caramel, but concord grape keeps coming to mind. Just a hint, mind. Really quite nice.

Wonderful dark brown-red colour. Small but thick redish head that sticks to the glass. Smell is spicy sweet and the taste adds caramel and smokiness. Beer has a great body too.

Koelschtrinker (11049) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 16, 2011
Das Dubbel hat die selben Characktereigenschaften wie das Blonde - mild, frisch, süffig. Schon im Antrunk ist dieses Bier recht malig, ein herbes Aroma schließet mit säuerlichem Ton daran an. Im Nachgeschmack gewinnt das malzige Aroma wieder die überhand und ist deutlich intensiver als im Antrunk. Nicht so überragend wie das Blonde, dennoch nicht zu verachten. Test vom 17.2.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,9,10,9,13,9 - 9,55
