330ml bottle from Verheyde, Watou. Pours deep dark brown with large off-white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, brown sugar. Taste is smooth, sweet, yeasty. Definitely a vibrant sweetness but tied in very well with good balance. Really liked this.

Lore (1942) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 10, 2016
cloudy brown colour, huge, medium dense yellowish-beige head; aroma of dried plum and figs, caramel some floral and herbal notes and roastedness; taste of roastedness, dried fruits, some caramel and herbal notes; if the taste was as good as the aroma, it would be a great dubbel

thb (797) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 4, 2016
Murky bubbly brown. Head is ample, but noisy and diminishing. Aroma is bread, candy, a bit of green apple, pear. brown sugar. Taste is refreshingly crisp and bright for a dubbel. There is a solid bready malt base (doppelbock like) with a crisp belgian layer of funk and a touch of sour on top. Nice.

Vignale (3083) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 10, 2016
Flaska från Beernavigator. Drygt ett år gammal. Mahoghnyfärgad, klar men med bottensats, medelhögt beige skum. En fruktig doft av brunt smågodis, karamell, russin, ceder, sandelträ. Ganska lätt söt kropp, smak av kryddigt trä, lite pepprig och kryddig beska skapar bra balans, läkerol, julkryddor. Lite annorlunda dubbel som jag tycker har aningen lätt lite saftaktig munkänsla. Lite ovanlig kryddig träighet också som är rolig. Gott.

330 ml. bottle sampled @ home. Whilst watching the 11th season premiere of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”, man I missed this brilliant show. Purchased @ ALBO. Dark brown, small mocha bubbles head. Nose is strange herbs, burned dough, medicinal herbs, rather odd. Taste is weird fizzy burned herbs, overripe fruits, umami, burned sugar, burned cookies, burned licorice, fizzy overripe banana,… Fizzy body. Rather strange. Fizzy & strange flavours, not entirely appealing to me. Too strange for me, not sure what is going on here. Different but not really in a good way for me.

brnandersen (3085) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2015
33 cl bottle, shared. Hazy, dark brown colour with a big, lightly tanned head. Sweet aroma with caramel malts, yeasts, toasted notes, fruits, nuts and faint liquorice. Taste is sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture and an average carbonation. Finishes slightly dry with fruits, yeasts and toasted notes. Lovely Dubbel.

BOTTLE 33 CL. Hazy dark ruby, beige head. Aroma is malts and dried fruit, a hint of alcohol. Some nice nutty and sweet fortified wine notes as it warms up. Taste: Malty and dried fruity, followed by a solid resiny bitterness. Very good.
