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

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown color, minimal to medium tan head. Sweet nose. Big caramel aroma with hints of coffee. Sweet taste, long sweet finish. Medium to full body, average carbonation. Alcohol well hidden. Good one, but could be better considering the price. About 5,8€ for 0,5l bottle is everything but cheap.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home. Color rame, velato, dalla schiuma beige fine ed abbastanza persistente. Aroma piuttosto intenso, predomina il fruttato con ciliege sotto spirito, uvetta, fichi. lievito belga anche presente. Non molto piacevole la nota alcolica che vira questi all’acetone, sin troppo marcata. Gusto dolce amabile, con frutta sotto spirito ed uvetta predominanti, qualche nota di liquirizia, e di caramello, di nuovo alcool troppo evidente, non ben nascosto.Poco amara. Corpo caldo, mediamente carbonata, tutto sommato abbastanza rotonda nonostante l’alcool, non troppo equilibrata , ma abbastanza armonica.
