Flaska från @msbrindbergs , stort tack! Mörk brunröd vätska med fluffigt ljust skum. Doftar kolafudge. Lättdrucken chokladig på ett mycket angenämt sätt. Mycket smak utan att bli för mycket. Choklad, kola, rostad malt... Mesta smaken kommer efter att den passerat gomseglet

Zymurgeist2 (1016) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 4, 2014
On tap at a cafe in Paris overlooking the Eiffel Tower. Pours a dark gold, clear with a white head. Lighter color than expected. A good and tasty beer, but not what I expected from a Dubbel. Taste is moderate bready and slight chocolate. Yeast is well pronounced in bready manner.

Grimbergen Cuvee Ambree )Dubbel (Double)) - 6.5% - Bottle at Rubens in Antwerp poured to Grimbergens glass. Pours dark brownish with some purple hues, and a half finger creamy off white head. Aroma is nice, with lots of dark fruits, figs, prunes, brown sugar. Smells very sweet. Flavor is figs and prunes, some brown sugar, and a slightly dirty finish here that lingers a bit unpleasantly. Prickly carbonation, soft mouthfeel otherwise, and relatively smooth down the throat. Not bad but the finish is a little offputting and downgrades things a bit.

Mainuh_man (121) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2014
0.33L tap. Pours clear mohaganey brown with a thick, frothy tan head. Aromas are sour with mild roasted and bready malt notes. Mild sweet at beggining, bubblegum in th emiddle, then a long, sweet-sour finish, with some hints of sour cherry. Leaves a chalky feeling on the tongue. Medium-light body with a creamy(ish) mouthfeel. Overall, more sour than I remember, and surprisingly light with a decent flavor profile.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2014 Bottle. Pours mahogany brown with thin yellowish head, good lacing. Aroma of caramel, ripe fruits, raisins, cane sugar. Taste is medium to high sweet, low bitterness, some astringency and pretty high carbonation on the palate.
