MiP (14163) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2015
Bottle, 8.1%. The aroma is faintly sugary with a hint of iron. Clear dark brown colour. Small tan head. The flavour is sweet and herbal with a hint of iron as well. On the sweet side, but fairly balanced by the alcohol. Good mouthfeel.

Bottle. Pours slightly hazy darkish amber wi small off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and fruit, with notes of caramel and touches of hops. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt, fruit and yeast, with bitter, hoppy notes. Bittersweetish aftertaste. Decent, if not luxury.

Icedwarf (613) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2015
Helder roodbruin bier met schuim. Smaak is zoet, licht bitter hoppig met fruit aardbei, vanille. Komt wat waterig over en mist body.

adrie (1) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2015 does not count
Bruin biertje, beetje weinig karakter. Nogal dun. Wellicht te koud geserveerd maar ook na wat wachten geen topper

SkillsFactory (99) - ITALY - APR 15, 2015
Color mogano scuro con riflessi rossastri, bassa persistenza della schiuma, di color beige chiaro. Aroma: esteri fruttati (uva passa e frutti rossi), spezie e caramello, cacao, note oleose. Palato: Corpo medio-pieno, carbonatazione medio-alta, alcol ben nascosto, uva passa, caramello, frutti rossi, malti tostati e finale amaro. Retrogusto dolce smorzato dall'amaro finale, dopo qualche secondo l'alcol "di ritorno" scalda la bevuta. Di facile beva, una buona Dubbel.
