3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle. brown with some reddish/amber notes. hay. nose has a good punch of caramel, sweetish malts and yeast esters. some licorice and herbal notes as well. palate is soft, thick and full, almost like a tut-gut or other malz drink. quite low carbonation. sweetish malts, some .. oak or .. twigs.. herbs. a strange vegetal finish. Overall, on the nose, a very nice belgian double/quad, but very thick and syrupy on the palate. Almost overpowering dense. Nice still, but one is plenty for sharing.

Hazy red-brown colour. Aroma of malts, sweet red fruits, yeast and spices. Flavour is very sweet but is well balanced with the spiciness.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
It’s an abbey dubbel and precisely what a dubbel should be. Has nothing particular either. It’s a decent dubbel that I will have forgotten tomorrow, which is both good and bad. Bottle from Van Erp in Roden.

20cl on draft @ Gruut, Gent
Caramel and alcohol aroma.
Mostly sweet taste, toast, caramel a bit vanilla.
Odd but pleasant aftertaste, a bit too much lasting.

Dark nut brown, ruby color, small off-white head. Dried dark fruits, dates, raisins, a bit papery. Medium-bodied. Raisins, dates, some caramel, somewhat cardboardish. Sweetish, malty. BB-date is soon, so maybe some kind of ageing noticed here. Decent, styleish abbey dubbel.
