3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2012 Bottle, at HaandFestival 2012. It pours a dark brown body, looking quite clear, and topped by a finger-thick beige head leaving lacings. The aroma is roasted, tending towards burnt, followed by dried fruits and some grassy, resiny hops. The flavor is sweet and lightly caramel-ish, with raisins, bitterness and some sourish hints. Medium to full body, soft and nicely carbonated. Overall, maybe a bit soft and tender, but it’s a fine brew anyway. Rating: 7-4-7-4-14-3.6. 120504
Bottle, 75cl, at TFODRBSG-12. It pours a lightly unclear, light brown body and a dense, off-white to light beige head. Quite chocolatey aroma, with some sugar, dried fruits and roasted malts. Chocolate dominated the flavor too, with some roasted notes and dried fruits as well. Toffee too. A little bitterness in the end. Full-bodied, lightly warming, which suprises me as it’s only 6.5%, and with a pleasant carbonation. Remembered this to be a more interesting beer, but it’s far from bad, just a little bit ordinary. 120818

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown, light head. The aroma is full of dark fruits (dates, plums) with soft milk chocolate and light toffee malts, hint of cherry. Full body. Soft and spicy with a little carbonation zip at the end. Chinese five spice and creamy chocolate. On the whole, a well-made dubbel but with no exceptional features.
