3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2011 Bottle. A bit murky reddish brown body, with a huge beige head. The nose is a bit weak, with dried fruits, sugar and some roast. The flavor is more pronounced, with roasted malt, dried fruits, caramel and sugar. Quite full body. The finish has a little spicyness. The beer is too anonymous, but pleasant.

Bottle, 6%, as Durboyse Brune. A ruby tinted brown beer with a big, coarse, beige head leaving lacings. Spiced, anise aroma with lots of white sugar and dried fruits. Some yeast too. The flavor is a bit heavy on the alcohol even though it’s not stronger than 6%. White sugar, too much anise and some dried fruits as well. Heavy carbonation, hard. Medium body, slighlty warming. Some metallic hints in the end, as well as pepper and anise, and of course white sugar and dried fruits. Decent, not very good or interesting, but not foul. 110304

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33l bottle from Durbuy under name “Durboyse brune”. Dark brown with a red heu. Small beige head that diminished quickly but left some floating spots on the top. Very light fruity aroma, taste is also fruity with hint of some spice. It seems that it was a bit to cold for tasting so all flavors was a bit fade. Anyway it is a good, well balanced Brune beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle coditioned, 330ml. Dark brown with red hue, cream head. Spicy thick bodied beer with fruit and a touch of aniseed. A little offputting tartness within the flavour, smacks of a touch of acidic cherry.Not the best Dubbel i have had.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2008 Bottle. Dark brown color with a beige head that refuses to die. Aroma is sweet and spicy with some dried fruits, caramel and a bit of alcohol. The first sip tasted sweet and nice at first, and then turned into a metallic flavor that wasn’t so pleasant. Medium body. Still an ok Dubbel anyway.
