33 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden amber with a diminishing tan head. Caramel malt and yeasty-fruity aroma. Classic caramel malt flavoured beer, shows a distinct yeast note which carries both a light fruit accent but also a light metallic edge. Smooth mouthfeel and a fullbodied alcohol feel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma is quite sweet with notes of yeast, prunes, and raisins. The color is an opaque deep red and it has a beutiful lasting light brown head. The flavor is also very sweet with notes of brown suger, yeast, prunes, raisins, and hints of wood. The end is dry from hops but also with hints of coriander and coffee bitterness. Compared to the strength the mouthfeel is a little thin.

Bottled, redbrownish, with a beige/brown longlasting head. Smelled like plum and berries along with some soapish hints. Flavour was sweet plummy with caramellish hints. It got a bit bitter once it got warmer, with different sweet flavour becoming more present.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2007 (Bottle 33 cl) Dark brown with a fine, stable head. Some roasted, caramellish notes but still with an almost tobacco-like dryness. Notes of both licorice, chocolate and perhaps even...coffee? Lovely not too sweet Dubbel. 221097 and 170598

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2007 Bottled at Belgobaren, Stockholm. Hazy copper colour, rich creamy head. Yeasty earthy nose that softly transfroms itself to minerals, almond and melon. Sweet and very soft, near full bodied. Later on another soft transition occurs - this time to grapefruit, syrup and salt. Finally it gradialy turns into resiny pine needle bitterness. A sensationally seemless beer that weaves your mouth into a silky web full of complex flavours. Too sweet, but who cares? This is art!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber color; giant creamy head; beautiful lace. Common aroma for a Dubbel, with some malt and caramel, and some carbonic gas nose. Pleasant taste, with some sweetness to balance the classic caramel. Ends with a delicate touch of roasted malt, light fruitness, light aromatic hop. A good example.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared with Paul and James on the Eurostar back from Brussels. Pours dark, red-brown with a medium, off-white head. Some earthy sugar in the snout, with toasty caramel. Big sweet flavor, some dark sugar, slightly syrupy and boozy, with sugary leaves. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Warm, sugary finish, with sweet dough, some alcohol, toffee, a bit of dirty bitterness that lingers amidst the sugar malts. I love Dubbels but not a huge fan of this one.
