3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled (as Dubbel on label, and referred to as Hillegomse Dubbel in the commercial description, also 7.5 %, same GTIN as this listing of Hilleghemse Dubbel). Hazy brown colour, huge beige head (actually a very lively bottle for being Klein Duimpje, so beware). Aroma is caramel, some toffee, mild roasted notes along with some alcohol and sweet nutty notes. Flavour i ssweet malts, toffee, some alcohol, mild alcohol and some yeastiness (mild spices). Actually quite tasty and nice (after the slight gushing that occurred and was a slight piss off).

Interesting in that it is a very nice beer, but that the taste is probably the least interesting thing about. Awesome banana aroma and a nice slightly bitter aftertaste. Too bad some spurted out of the bottle.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Vast medium sized creamy off white head, changes very slow into a
Hazy murky brown colored beer.
Smell lots of caramel, some malts, toasted malts.
Taste is nice bitter with caramel, toasted barley malts, a light sour tint, liquorice wood, some hints of yeast, herbs and light chocolate.
Aftertaste is caramel, hops, grass, light bitter and some herby spices.
Very nice balanced and quite tasty especially with the light sour note.
Low to medium carbo, soft mouthfeel, good medium body and a creamy texture.

Clear dark brown beer. Soft palate. Aged tasting malt with some traces of chocolate and toffee. Finishes soft and a bit dry with repressed fruit and minerals. Interesting.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautiful building on the label but again a very ugly label in total from this brewer... The beer does look good luckily, with a deep reddish brown body and great tan head. Quite rich aroma with loads of caramel, some coffee, pumpernickel, blackberries and leather. Taste isnít anywhere near as rich - kind of straightforward bitterness really, with only a slight funk. Stays true to the style (fairly heavy carbonation, too) but never moves the style ahead or even shows its true strengths. (33cl bottle)

Clear light red / dark orange color, average off-white head. Smell malts, caramel, yeast and something I donít like but donít know what it is. Decent taste, good carbo and body.
