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.

Bottle, 300 ml, poured into a tulip glass at home. ABV 6.5% Deep orange golden colour on the body with a big white head on top. Average retention for the most part. Huge chunks of the yeast are floating around, although the bottle was sitting long enough in the fridge and my pour was careful as always. Very nice aroma though, sweet but with lots of peaches, yeast, some caramel and hints of alcohol. Taste has notes of yeast, malts, alcohol, very fruity with the peach being dominant. Mild bitter aftertaste. Medium body, a bit too much on the carbonation, light dry palate. Not a bad beer, I really liked the peach notes and was surprised as I was waiting a dubbel with lots of coffee.

Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a hazy medium amber with a frothy, long-lasting, white head. The aroma is of yeast and fruit, leading to a yeasty, acidic, sour flavour which immediately hits the palate for a flavourful, refreshing beer.

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.
