2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled, filtered, 330ml at A ge Pannes, Schin op Geul, NL Limburg. Dark brown with cream head. Another I thought I had rated in the past, thank god for a PDA and a beer list. Sugary sweet dubbel without too much to overcome the sweetness. There is some malty fruitiness if you try and a touch of deep roasted malt, but I am beggining to struggle with the Belgian taste for sweetness.

A sweet, vegetable-like aroma with some roasted malt. Sweet, malty and fruity taste. Slight bitter aftertaste. A bit sticky. Disappointing for a abbey ale.

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.

(6-3-5-3-11)re-rate 2015-02-03, 75cl bottle at dkk 39.. clear nutty brown, smooth, but slightly fluffy too, offwhite head. nutty and malty aroma, also some burnt caramel, faint dry raisins. Flavor is sweet malty, full bodied, caramel, some faint notes of flowers or honey, some faint notes of sweet dried fruits. A very pleasant and drinkable dubbel, although it is stil enough complex to keep you interested. much better than for instance leffe brune. However the sweetness gets to me after a while, and it is in the way more and more as i continue tasting. (current registered rating) tap at hp. Clear brown small white head. Aroma is malty and fruity. Faint dark fruits. Faint nuts. Delicate aroma 7 flavor is malty caramelly and nutty. More like a brown ale . Lively carbonation the Belgian way. Also flavor notes of dried fruits and perhaps caramelised fruits. End is delicate Belgian dubbel. Faint flavor notes of cola. ? Taste 6 to 7 and overall 13 to 14
