3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottiglia da 0,50. Scura "dubbel" dall?aroma molto deciso. Schiuma cremosa ma non persistente. Ottima carbonazione. Tostatura accentuata e forte sentore di liquirizia. Molto corposa al palato. Finale sorprendentemente dolce. Consiglio 8/10

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From old notes, tasted with Curtis and some friends in Nashville, probably some time near the summer of 2012, from a bottle. Pours hazy copper brown with a very thin beige head that completely disappears. The nose is cola and plenty of bread malt. The flavor is the same bread malt, with the cola coming through as a bit of dried fruit raisin and date. The body is medium with fizzy carbonation and a long lightly spicy raisin finish.

Io non l’ho trovata molto in forma, decisamente sbilanciata, forse ho beccato la bottle sfortunata.

Beautiful cloudy dark red color, average sized brownish head. Full body, lively carbonation. Aroma of malts, yeast, raisins, strawberry, dark fruits. Medium sweet, light bitter taste with dry finish. Very complex and very interesting. Excellent dubbel.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Crystal clear, dark brown body with a small beige head that ends up as a fully lasting thin layer and some foam sticking to the glass. The malty and sugary aroma is moderate, with notes of malt extract, dark fruits and brown sugar. Quite strong flavour of dark fruits, Belgian yeast, orange, brown sugar and alcohol. Moderate sweet and moderate bitter taste. Mid-bodied, oily texture and moderate carbonation, a very light dryness in the finish. Ok beer, lovely bottle.

50cl bottle thanks to ruigo. Dark reddish brown color, with low to medium initial head with beige color. Good carbonation, round and full body and little oily. Aromas of sweet caramel, coffee and yeast. Aftertaste is long and sweet mouth. A well-balanced and well disguised alcohol beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Jar from the Nettorama in Gorinchem. The beer has a ruby red color and a small cream colored head and medium Co2. The aroma is malty, fruity and has some tones of licorice. The taste is light sweet with tones of nuts and a little alcohol. In the aftertaste herbs and a light bitterness which makes the aftertaste nice. A nice dubbel beer but a little expensive. I know cheaper ones which are way better.
