Sampled while in the Netherlands. A very nice brew with a strong aroma and nice dark brown appearance. Head when poured was thick and tasty. Flavor was tremendous. A great beer.

2.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Interesting beer. Intense and persistent taste of toasted malt, much more of coffee and chocolate. Short while extreme carbonation, but does not compromise the set. Absolute lack of aroma. But, in compensation, the cream is thick and consistent........................................ Bem interessante essa escurinha.
Gosto intenso e persistente de malte torrado, muito mais do que café e chocolate.
Carbonatação um pouco excessiva, mas não compromete o conjunto.
O que mata um pouco é a absoluta falta de aroma. Mas, em compensação, o creme é espesso e consistente.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hop Leaf, Chicago. On tap. No head, almost wine-y in texture and flavor. Not what I would have expected from a dubbel. Wonder if a bottle would have been different...

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2007 It is the strong Dunkel than I remember to have taken. Palate accented of coffee, caramel, toasting and, over all, chocolate bitter taste (pure cacao). Perhaps therefore its palate tent to the sweet one. Very good aroma and cream, however too carbonated. Pretty color (brown). I detach as weak point the bitter taste that is in the tongue, extreme to mine. Very subtle aftertaste. Evident alcohol.

Bottle (form Bitter Virtue)> Fruity and toffeeish on the nose with mild yeast. Slightly sweet with mild tartness. Very smooth with the sweetness more restrained than in some beers. On the whole unimpressive but quite drinkable.

I did not really care for the flavor. For some reason all i could taste was sweat. No idea why. Other than that, it looked quite nice, but still I ended up disappointed.
