3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Opaque copper brown hue with mid sized beige head consisting of good retention. Blast. Unfortunately smells rather akin to stale cardboard. Vast breadth of body not unlike dough. Delectable taste which is bizarre given the terribly unimpressive aroma. Caramel, slight roast, dried fruit, fall spices and vanilla with a sweet/malty finish that coalesces with a wee bit of hop. Pleasant.

Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel, Belgium. The beer is dark brown colored and has a large and stable cream colored head, with livingly CO2.
The aroma is malty and fruity, with notes of roasted malts, yeast, dark fruits, caramel and spices.
The taste is sweet and malty, with tones of caramel, dark fruits, raisins and the spices gives it a pleasant bitterness near the end.
The finish is a little alcohol, light bitter and dry.
Very nice dubbel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
