I was rather impressed by this Dubbel beer. It pours a nice glass of brown beer, had a firm texture and strong well balanced aroma.

Mooi donker bier met witte schuimkraag. Bier proeft niet zo zwaar, redelijk licht eigenlijk. Wat tonen van caramel en chocolade. Verder niet echt heel spannend.

Een typisch lekker donker bier met een goede geur en een lekkere volle smaak. Een aanrader om eens te proberen

Commissioned by Detrembleur in Vielsalm. Off-white, thick, sticky head, colour a dark burgundy, hazy. Aroma of coffee liqueur, candied dates, nutmeg, white pepper, gravy, brown candi sugar, pear, whisky. Soft dark fruits, light sourish but refreshingly so, deep maltiness, candi sweetness, caramel, light roasted bitterness and aromatic hops in the finish as well as warming alcohol. Very tasteful Scotch-style ale.

33cl Bottle: BBD 11th Jan 14. Poured into it’s own chalice on 16th Nov 13 while at home. Lovely brown body with a slight ruby hue: on top a deep and full beige head of foaming bubbles. Sweet malt molasses in the nose: other cereals in there too. The taste has a huge sweet front, treacle, toffee and caramel, becoming a little more dry and bitter towards the end of each alcoholic sip. The body is both rich and smooth and it’s far to easy to drink. Taken with a cream herb cheese and salted crackers: seemed to work fine.

33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from Willems. BBF 05/10/2014. Same kind of label as La Vieille Salme by Achouffe – this one is made by another brewer. I assume that both are contract brew – apparently made for the Detrembleur a town in Vielsalm according to RB. Dark copper amber, sizable creamy slightly off-white head. Smells very sweet, brown sugar, caramel, malts, something unpleasant chemical, strongly burned sugar, herbal. Taste is bitter herbal, rye, black bread taste, heavy spices, leaves, black pepper, malts, caramel, dark fruits, small hint of bitter bark but the whole very heavy carbonation messed with the whole. Body is rather light. I don’t know maybe with a bit fuller body & less extreme body but still enjoyable.
