Una birra all'aspetto con tutti i requisiti x una dubbel. Di riuscita molto più equilibrata e meno dolcina e caramellosa. Ottimo abbinata con i dolci. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Muddy brown colour, average slightly off-white head, decent retention and lacing. Aroma shows sweet biscuity malts and hints of dark fruits among a delicate alcohol/warming feel. It’s nice but not too vivid. Taste follows the aroma plus a hint of spiciness. Obviously on the sweet side but not excessively so. Alcohol is detectable but not aggressive, brings a bit of a warming feel. Medium body (quite light for style and abv) with average to high carbonation; clean and quite easy for the style but not too rich or creamy. Enjoyable

Vinx (113) - ITALY - OCT 11, 2016
Aroma of banana, bubble gum, nuts, toffee, bread, some spices and some interesting herbal hints at last. Amber color which comes to hazy pouring the yeast from the bottom of the bottle. Medium sweetness, medium body, lively carbonation, astringent finish. It sounds to be like the poor brother of the more famous belgians: it barely looks like them but it’s less harmonius and it has an unpleasant tannic note that ruins everything.

Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is dark brown colored and has a large and stable cream colored head, with nice carbonation. The aroma is malty and fruity, with notes of roasted malts, caramel, dried and dark fruits and spices. The taste is sweet and full bodied and also has a spicy bitterness. In the taste tones of roasted malts and caramel, but also raisins and fruits and when the bitterness takes over, some fresh hops and spices. The finish is bitter and a little dry and some alcohol is noticable.

Flaska @ Pressklubben. Mörk vätska med fingertjockt skum. Inget särskilt som sticker ut. En generisk mörk belgare, helt enkelt.

El color es oscuro, rojizo, turbio. La espuma esponjosa. El olor es a maltas y frutas. El sabor, dulce, con cierto tono metálico y recuerdos a caramelo, y un final ligeramente amargo.

Bière belge, brune typique. Épices et amertume, notes de chocolat très légères. Bien fait dans l ’ensemble, mais corps un peu léger.
