Pours slightly hazy russet to coppery brown with a full creamy coloured head that sank slowly into the glass. I love a dubbel and hope this lives up to my expectations of full cocoa, malt and butter aroams. It is alittle lighter than expected, but no less satisfying. It also carries a touch of licorice, molasses and pumpernickel. The mouthfeel is of full carbonation and then it gives way to flavours of chocolate biscuits, cola and dusty Dutch biscuits. It is dry to the finish but leaves with a gorgeous reminiscence. It also leaves me a happy man.

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 (2851) - 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.

77ships (6512) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 9, 2016
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.

33cl bottle. Pours slightly hazy red brown colour with a mid-sized beige head. Aroma of nuts, red fruits, brown sugar. Taste of riped dark fruits, red berries, caramel, some coffee, good!

brnandersen (2879) - 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.

07-09-2015 - After a few days of bland, tasteless beer, I finally found something new with at least a little bit of taste.

Mørk brun noe tåkete med fingerhøyt beige skum. Lukter brunt sukker, epler og toast. Fyldig. Smaker søtt, lett bitter brent karamell og alkohol. Søt brent i avsluttningen.
