Not bad, not great. Cloudy dark orange and brown. Too much black licorice in the aroma. Some fruity spiciness as well. Same goes for flavor. I like chilled Sambucca, but not really in my beer. Still decent though, just not one I would go out of my way for. Thanks anyway to Hopscotch for sharing!

Murky, burnt orange ale with a small, creamy, light brown head. Good retention and ok lacing. The nose is bursting at the seams with licorice and pear. The flavor is of cola, and sambuca. Medium-bodied with a dry mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Lengthy, tangy, dry finish. Thanks to jbrus for the bottle!

Brown color. Nice malty, sweet aroma. Unfortunately it has a too thin mouthfeel, poor.

Had this at Tapwerks in on N. Western in OKC. I found it odd that they had something on tap that I had not seen before, especially in Oklahoma. Weird. It had a deep brown appearance with a tan head. Smells like bananas, cloves, and fingernail polish. Very chemical.. Thin, tastes like some other "belgian brown ales". Metallic and thin overall. Bland.

(alias Durboyse brune) I drunk this beer in a Leffe glass and actually it looked like a brown Leffe. It's brown colour and brownish head are appealingly simular. The aroma is sweet an malt with a malty spices in the undertone. Although it seemed like a Leffe, it didn't tasted like. Very spicy and a little malty, although not dimensioneous. The aftertaste is spicy and quite long.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy brown. Rich aroma of juniper, also hints of licorice and dried fruits. Flavour is hoppy, a bit smokey with notes of dried fruits, juniper and licorice. Fizzy palate feel and a salty finish.

nice aroma, big head, dark brown color. Sweet and a little candyish taste, other then that, this is a classic dubbel

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light brown head that diminishes slowly. Dark, almost black colour. Aroma holds fruit, spice, liqourice. Taste is sweet and spicy in a way that does not appeal to me.
