3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very sweet and malty aromas like chocolate and rasins come from this deep dark clear red brew with a creamy off white head. A medium bodied beer with a sweet malty flavor with the taste of co2. The alcohol flavor isnt strong like a dubbel usually should and the body is quite lighter than what a dubnel should be. Overall not a bad brew very drinkable. For a dubbel a bit light bodied and should have been naturally carbonated not forced.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Przeciętny dubbel. Bardzo słaby aromat, lekko karmelowy. W smaku nie dzieje sie wiele ciekawego, tradycyjny belgijski drożdżowy posmak, tylko mniej intensywny niż u wybitnych przedstawicieli stylu. Spore grzanie w przełyku. Dość pijalne.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Foam is brownish and fast gone. Not a very special smell. Roasted malt and white chocolate. Rotten fruit when it warms up. A metallic taste, not bad but not great. Clove. Good presentation in a ceramic bottle, to bad the beer in it is a normal double not more not less.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cool bottle from supermarket.
The color is a dark red, in the glass there is few white foam that disappearing really quik, not sticky at all. Aroma isn’t that complex. Really heavy toasted malt aroma and no other things.
At taste also toasted malt, herbs, yeast, alcohol. Full body, with a nice bitter aftertase.
Finding also metallic note during the drink, really strange, probably is a problem of my bottle.
At the ending is a snce beer that i will retry in the future.
