Comprada en Cervezorama. Una de las mejores cervezas de su clase. Color rojizo oscuro, con buena espuma, turbia. En el aroma se adivina el alcohol que está quizá demasiado presente en el sabor. Postgusto largo, de fruta madura, con gran complejidad. Estupenda creación del creador de Hoegaarden.

Flaske. Farven er brun og skumkronen er flødefarvet. Aromaen er malt, rød frugt og gær, medens smagen er næsten syrlig med mørke frugter og bær. Har en god mundfylde. Man får meget smag.

Silvan7 (965) - Samarate, ITALY - DEC 16, 2015
Bottle @ home. Marrone, al mimite del ramato carico, con schiuma beige non troppo fine ma persistente. Aroma tostato, di cacao, lievito belga, frutti rossi , lieve di liquore, note erbacee e qualche sentore di cantina. Abboccato l’ingresso, fruttato di frutta candita, poi leggermente tostato e liquoroso. Corposa, piena , molto rotonda. Meno calda rispetto a quanto l’aroma liquoroso lascerebbe intendere. poco carbonata. Equilibrata ed armonica

Draught. Pours a murky brown with a fading off white head. Aroma of dried fruits, dark fruits, berries, blackcurrants. Taste is of forest fruits, caramel, earthy, some spice. Light oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation.

Holmen2 (2462) - NORWAY - NOV 1, 2015
Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 31.03.13. Unclear brown. White head. Aroma of currants, chocolate malt and orange marmalade. Hops and toffee in taste that opens up more and more. Bitter chocolate and orange marmalade in aftertaste. Fizzy mouthfeel. High drinkability.

TorbenJensen (1408) - Valby, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2015
Beautiful renewable foam with a lively aroma of hops and spices. The flavor is hoppy, slightly sweet and with an aftertaste persistent pleasant and round. I think alcohol taste is in a perfect relief to the beer’s other flavors.

Not sure I would call this a dubbel. It is a little too sweet and syrupy. Dry though.

Prolitariat777 (102) - St george, Utah, USA - JUL 29, 2015
Caramel and spice with a dirt kind of aroma. Taste banana and tart with some raisin and wine vinegar. Not too bad I appreciate the style but wouldn’t drink a bunch. Be sure to enjoy the Bruins before you try.

Dubbel, czyli to, co Belgowie robią świetnie. Brązowy kolor, spora, średnio- i grubopęcherzykowa piana. Piana szybko opadła... Aromat rodzynek, trochę czekolady i wina. W smaku nuty winne, ciemnych owoców, nieco karmelu. Delikatna goryczka, średnie wysycenie. Bardzo grzeczny, stonowany dubbel!
