3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2015 Bottle from Dranken Geers, Oostakker, Nr Gent, Belgie, consumed at home B/H Monday 4th May 2015 Pours murky brown with an off-white head, candi sugar in mouth, but with a burnt edge. One of those beers that I’ve had plenty of times but never got around to rating. In fact I think that we’ve even had it at the Tap at Watou when cycling in the area a good few years ago now. Crap rating but just to say I like it. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.4

Bottle. Brown clear body with tan head. Aroma is Belgian yeast with some dark caramel and hints of coffee. Taste is caramel with dried fruits and some dry taste. Aftertaste is not as balanced and nice as other dubbels but ok

An okay dubbel. Had a bit of an odd, metallic aftertaste but was otherwise as expected/typical. Their tripel was much, much better!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 10C. Brown with a beige head. Aroma of dark fruit and bread, some brown sugar and banana. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Fairly rich and sweet with lots of dried fruit, a hint of roast and spices (mainly coriander) in a dryish and slightly bitter finish that lifts the sweetness away nicely. No great magic but very harmonious.
