DanielBrown (4054) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2005
Bottle at the Criterion, Leicester (during RB crawl). Red/brown with a creamy head. Sweet and gentle up till the end, when some strength is noticeable. Cereal flavour - some bran. Not the tastiest Dubbel, but reasonably smooth (perhaps like Magnum PI).

Bottled - Criterion - Leicester (RB Leicester Crawl). A brown coloured beer with a large off-white head. The aroma has candy sugars and also seems ’gritty’. The taste is full of good flavours with brown fruits (raisins, sultanas etc.) and malty alcohol together with candy sugars. A tasty beer.
