Alengrin (1716) - BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2014
Dark counterpart of Jessenhofke Tripel with off-white, sticky head and brownish bronze colour with yellowish glow. Nutty aroma, thyme, pear, dates, coffee beans, nutmeg, hops. Dried fruits in the mouth, rounded but dry mouthfeel, some coffee-like roasted bitterness, nutty malts and a moderately hoppy finish with warming alcohol. Okay for its style but nothing spectacular.

Een lekker bruin bier zoals een bruin bier hoort te zijn, met een goede volle smaak

Borresteijn (4677) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2014
33cl Bottle from an EKO shop. Typical abbey dubbel imho. Dark brown, beige head. Aroma of brown sugar, burnt sugar, dark fruits, light-spicy yeast. Flavour is the same, hint of cocoa, light floral, bittersweet finish. Light to medium-bodied. Very bland, and a bit too sweet for me.

bièregourmet (41) - Mechelen, BELGIUM - JAN 27, 2014
33cl - brown dubbel. nose is malty and really simple, taste is simple but nice for this style, typical cara-malt and brown sugar tastes. the problem is the extremely watery body.

Maakun (588) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2014
Clear reddish brown with off-white head. Roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, spices and some raisins. Sweet at first but with a big bitter kick. Medium bodied, nice, almost chewy carbonation but a slightly thin feel at first. Gets better after it’s been in the glass a while. Overall quite nice.

EddyBeer1 (876) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 13, 2013
Brune mi-claire, mi foncée, effervescence moyenne-forte, col beige fin. Malts caramel rôtis, légèrement aqueuse, notes de fruits et de chocolat, plutôt sèche sur la fin. Assez agréable...

Douberd (2285) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 11, 2013
Stubby 330 ml bottle as BRWN, poured into a trappist glass. ABV 7% Light mahogany brown colour on the body, light beige head on top. Good sized, kind of thin but with very good retention and nice formed lacing left on the glass. Aroma of caramel, malts, a bit grainy, raisins, plums. Taste follows the aroma, only more fruity now, the caramel more intense, some light roasted malts. Fruity aftertaste with a touch of bubblegum. Mildly bitter. Medium body, good carbonation. Overall quite good, from the first sniffs I wasn’t too excited but after it breathed a bit, it turned out to be actually nice.
