Alengrin (853) - BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2014
Strong brown ale brewed for the Hopduvel in Ghent, with a yellowish beige, creamy, bit rocky, stable head and dark mahogany brown to bronze colour, misty. Malty and bit spicy aroma of caramel, fondant, cloves, liquorice, herbal hops, cherries, lemon, yoghurt and red cabbage. Malty, rather dry taste, some dried fruits, vaguely sweetish but not sweet, finishing in a mild, herbal hop bitterness - more so than usual in a dubbel and in that sense not the most ordinary example of its style. The tail even reveals a hint of roastedness.

guitarhero (23) - Dante’s hell, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2014
A really flat and obvious dubbel ale in the belgian way, not complex, difficult to drink, watery taste.
