25/09/2010 - 75cl @ Karakterbierfestival Bissegem

Pours a cloudy copper brown to brown beer, fine beige head, disappears quickly. No refermentation in the bottle, just came out of the Proefbrouwerij brewery. Aroma is heavy sweet, caramel, dried fruits. MF a little flat, no doubt because of the lack of refermentation yet. Round body, smooth texture, even a little oily. Taste of caramel, sweet fruits, roasted malts. Aftertaste has roasted malts, caramel, mocha and a nice sour twist to counter this all.

33cl Bottle from an EKO-shop. Clear reddish brown colour, off-white head. Aroma of plums, alcohol, dark fruits, caramel, hint of cocoa. Flavour is sweet, malty, dark fruits, plums, raisins, cocoa, strong alcohol, alcoholic bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Could do with a bit less alcohol. BdG?

Draught @ OBM’11: Small off white head on top of a clear dark brown colored beer. Smell gass, malts, sweets. Taste light toasted malts, barleys, toasted brown sugars, hint of fruit (red fruit), gas and a hint of hops. Low to medium carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a light watery texture.

dEnk (4134) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 8, 2012
Bottle @ home. Aroma is red fruits, caramel, some molasses. Okay. Flavour is medium bitterness, mostly of roasted malt, some fruity notes, murky molasses in the finish. Good beer, just not really my thing.

erickok (4006) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - APR 24, 2012
Brown bodied, tan head. Nice big lacing. Nutty, caramel, spruce, humus. Well developed. Rich flavour combining a smooth malty sweetness with just enough hop backup. Carbonation is just big enough. Brings, then, what so many Belgian dubbels can’t. Absolutely hides the huge abv. Well made classic style beer. Enjoyed this a lot. (33cl bottle, pretty cheap too)

Vaiz (3709) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2013
Bottle at home. Clear copper pour, thin off-white head. Aroma of bready yeast, spicy and malty with brown sugar and some licorice. Flavor is quite sweet, huge carbonation and a thick body. Spicy but smooth. Well drinkable, but not very outspoken.
