Dobbele Java is een donker bier van 6,5%. Oorspronkelijk genoot het bekendheid onder de naam “Hulster Monnikenbier” dat al voor 1821 in het klooster in de binnenstad van Hulst gebrouwen werd. Later is op de ruines van een deel van dit klooster de Halve Maan gebouwd. Op het oorspronkelijke etiket is dan ook een pater te zien die zich tegoed doet aan een glas van dit monnikenbier. De donkere kleur en de volle smaak worden gevormd door het gebruik van caramelmouten, Kandijsuiker en vloeibare caramel. Saaz en Brewers Gold hop geven Dobbele Java die typische bitterheid. Dobbele Java hoort uit een kelkglas op kamertemperatuur (van ‘t schap) te worden gedronken.

Cloudy dark brown beer, thin tan head. Minerally nose. Palate is crisp but turns a little softer. Mild dark malts, mild coffee. Trace of bubblegum and sweet candy like red berry fruits. Dry finish. Interesting! Not the flavour profile I was expecting. Candy fruits dominate the coffee.

Bottle, thnx to Secret Sinterklaas! Cheers! Pours a murky brown colored beer with a nice slight tanned head. Aroma is full of toffee, some mocha and ripe fruits. Typical Belgianny, quite nice. Flavour is bready, spicey sweet and feels like a typical dubbel. Nothing wrong with that and due to low abv I could session this for sure. This is a very decent, school example of a typical Belgian Ale.

Not a particular fan of this one. The spices in this one can be a bit overwhelming. Caramel sweetness and a thick head. Tried with Dave on Neeltje Jans.

Dark brown colour. Thick but light foamy head. Flavour is sweet. There’s a fruity sweetness and also some caramel. Nice smooth taste.

Cloudy brown, light tan head. Looks very tasty. Sweet and sour candy, lychee, nutmeg and pineapple. Interesting milky sourness hidden behind the typical Belgian medium sweet base and big carbonation. Funny aftertaste, which is short and solid. Bit sticky, unfortunately. Special beer, interesting to try but not quite my taste. (75cl bottle, cheap)
