3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Almost opaque dark brown color, with a copper hue, and storming activity. Slightly frothy light brown 2-3 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with faint lacing. Flavors of black liquorice, dark grains, plums, cherries, peach, herbal spices. Thick sugary feel of dark fruits with slightly bitter roasted malts. Slick and smooth almost full body with crispy carbonation. Strong finish, a little dry and vinous, lingering ester fruits, leafy spices, and a strong presence of liquorice. Lacks freshness being a little metallic. Feels a bit like a port, would serve this as an appetizer being very sweet. Good flavors, but nothing amazing, yet the aftertaste is quite nice. Overall good quality craft.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 33cL. Home. Brought back from the Namur beer festival. A dark brown beer with shining mahogany hues ; big off-white foamy head with a medium retention. Roast, licorice, anise, caramel note, herb, raisin. Medium sweet, round, warming baseline, light dry bitter fresh episodes. Medium good body, thin oily texture, average carbonation, dry refreshing spicy finish. Overall, a great dubbel ; this beer would do a great christmas ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle. Dark brown but clear with medium head. Aroma is very fruity, mostly dark and dried fruits like figs and plums but also apple, banana, raisins. Some cake with burned bottom and coca-cola. Strong carbonation and fluffy texture. The beer is medium sweet, dry like cooked fruits with clove and with no sugar. Aftertaste is earthy with almost like a delicately smoked plum. Finish is medium intensive though. Beer isn’t interesting at all but not completely wrong.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, dark fruit and liquorice.
Turbid/opaque ruby/brown beer with a slight/medium beige/brown head.
Medium sweet with malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, dark fruit and liquorice.
This beer is rather intense and balanced, but lacks complexity. Basically has three flavours and that is it. Still a nice double however, just never exceptional.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - Slightly hazy brown colour, medium beige head, good retention and fine lacing. Fine toasted malt aromas with toffee, nut, raisins, dried fruits, some rd berries, low herbal hops. Taste is sweet, fruity and nutty, hop bitterness smoothens into it. Medium body, smooth carbonation, sticky texture, toasted finish. Nice dubbel, but not my favourite.

330ml bottle. Dark brown with a long lasting tall creamy head. Lacing. Anise, chocolate, honts of metal, some yeast. Thin palete, low/medium co2. Too much anise and way too thin imo.
