COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hertog Jan Dubbel is een traditioneel bier van hoge gisting. In de brouwerij spreken we van een degustatiebier. Dit betekent dat Hertog Jan Dubbel het waard is om met al uw zintuigen geproefd te worden. Waardoor u het in al zijn facetten leert kennen. Eerst schenkt u het uit in een glas en bewondert u het schuim en de fraaie roodbruine kleur. Vervolgens ruikt u het volle zachte aroma. U neemt een slok en proeft het rijk moutige karakter. En tenslotte geniet u van de iets zoete afdronk.

Dark ruby, good brown head. A bit lemony, brown sugar in the aroma. Sweetish, sugary, liquerish palate. Not very strong and hides ABV completely. I heard that this is only available on tap at the brewery and at ít Arendsnest in Amsterdam.

InBev, eh? Lovely terra cotta stone bottle from Open All Hours, Keswick. Fairly one dimensional brown ale within. Aroma of chocolate and malt, tasted artificially carbonated despite bottle conditioning.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - JUN 16, 2005
Fluffy light brown head, unclear dark brown body. Dominating chocolate aroma with malt and a bit of spices also. Sweet and pretty full malt, chocolate and toffee flavor with some fruity tones hiding underneath. Tasty and easy drinkable, but quite harmless. Thanks Dalle for the bottle!

Best thing about this is the aroma. Thereís not a lot of it, but itís pleasantly malty. It has a fizzy head which is gone quicker than I can say rip-off. When itís gone, this brew looks just like coke. Which is not a good sign in my book. Itís way too carbonated, which makes it harder for me to actually locate the flavor. And it also prickles on my tongue afterwards. Thereís a weird tang of metal here. But underneath all this might be a bit of traditional dubbel-flavor. Unfortunately the over all experience is not pleasant.

The whole concept of presentation is an interesting one. The voting criteria does not lend itself to such a consideration and probably that is correct. but just as when you enter a restaurant that feels good and has the impression that the proprietors have tried hard, so fo you feel more inclined to be positive towards a bottle like this. Thankfully the contents donít let you down either. The presentation in the glass is a deep copper colour with crisp head. There is a clear hint of cinnamon and cholcolate in the nose and I too detected a slight rumminess in the flavour. Not highly hopped but nor is this expected. Overall a pleasant experience which would hopefully be the case here as the price of $11 means that a visit to this establishment will not simply be when a thirst is rising in the old gullet.

SimonLarsen (210) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 28, 2005
Very dark, beautiful clay bottle, tan head, light spice and, possibly psychosomatic, a hint of clay. Milk chocolate and rum. Very mild though, I wouldnít call it weak however. Flavour is distinctly earthy. Have to think about this one a bit I think, could go either way, for now going to say itís different in a good way. Special points for bottle.

Bottle. Dark red-brown with nice beige head. Malty-sweet, caramel, lightly spicy. Medium bodied. Not overly exciting but pleasent enough.

Choos (662) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - NOV 20, 2004
Aroma: earthy cracked stone, malt and a little ripe fruit. Very mild. Appearance: clear dark ruby red with an amazing tan head that poures to a great size and lasts. Bottle deserves extra points. Flavour: malt and earthy flavour. A bit musty fruity but not dirty tasting. Finishes spiritous. Palate: well carbonated, medium mouthfeel. Lasting malt and earthy flavours.

Cloudy garnet colour with absolutely no head. Very sweet aroma. Not a robust taste. Some fruit and maltflavour but not much of it. Beautiful bottle which probably accounts for the high price.
