Hamirubi (114) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAR 21, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2015 33cl bottle. Truly beautiful dark dubbel, which colours darkred to black. The ’hulk’ appearance has a nice, fit collar and is appealing. The aroma is tempting: mokka flavours, alcohol hints, some undefined fruit notes. Yet, the flavours aren’t that pronounced. Though I don’t really appreciate the blond beer, I adore this brown variant. Strong body, very sweet, nice taste with some sour redbrown accents, spirit-like ending.

ForlornHope (145) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2015
33 cl bottle at home. Pours a clear red-brown colour with a thin off-white head. Aroma is of chocolate, malt and boozy stewed fruit. Taste is sweet to start with a slight bitterness. Lots of rich fruitiness, maltiness and some more booze on the palate, almost sherry-like. Pretty good, but a bit heavyweight for me.

33cl bottle from Bier Paleis. Thin creamy off white head. Clear deep burgundy pour. Lots of sweet caramel in the aftertaste.

Bicky (13) - Waregem, BELGIUM - OCT 20, 2014
Dark copper color with a foam nice and thick. Smells like metal, some chocolate malts and a little bit burned afther a while you also got some banana. It has a nice cholate teast, a bit of alcohol, some metal and a bit bitter. Nice round but nog heavy teaste.

Alengrin (2813) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2014 The brown Keyte, launched in 2007, with contradictory name as dubbel should indeed be dark but tripel is pale by definition. Also tasted as Strandjuttersbier Mong De Vos, which is apparently the same thing. Cream white but quickly dissolving head, dark wine-red colour. Dark fruity aroma, caramel, lots of DMS (red cabbage), fresh mushrooms, liquorice, cinnamon, iron, bark; sweet taste, candied fruit, port- and sherry-like touches, grape, thick maltiness, creamy mouthfeel, some spiciness, light hoppiness in the finish, insufficient to balance out the initial candi syrupy sweetness. I hate DMS and that is what ruined this for me.

33cl flesje bij café De Gouverneur, Maastricht Alcoholpercentage van 9,2% Uitgeschonken in Charles Quint glas Uiterlijk: donker met ruime witte schuimkraag Aroma en smaak: zoete mout smaak, donker fruit, rozijnen Conclusie: donkere tripel. Tripel term geen beschermde naam. Anders volstaat donker gewoon. Wellicht wat té zoet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
