330ml bottle. Clear reddish brown colour with small to average, firm, frothy, moderately lacing, off-white head. Dark malty aroma has notes of dark berries, milk chocolate, decent dry, leather-like overtone. Taste is minimally sourish with dark fruity notes, plum, later dry with a leather touch, also some yeast. A composition with flavours that could do but don’t.

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.
