3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy dark copper body with bubbly, frothy tan head. Aroma has oatmeal cookies, pumpkin pie, funky figs and some dark hops. Medium sweet. Heavy carbonation, but not unpleasant and it helps getting the body to foam and produce flavour. Very malty, caramel taste, with fermenting fruit and sticky dades. Marmite, even. Sweet, concentrated ending. Loads of residual sugars but not bad at all. Watch the high abv! (33cl bottle, very reasonably priced)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The bottle says this dobbel tripel is a smooth refermented strong beer with a warm ruby glitter, brewed with pride and patience. It is patiently brewed by brouwerij strubbe in Ichtegem, Belgium in cooperation with "de Oostendse bierjutters". As I live at the belgian coast, near to Ostend, I might have an opinion wich could be considered rather subjective, but you really should taste this creamy, roasty caramel bitterness while having the seagulls stealing half of your pot of nuts on the promenade of Ostend.
