An ordinary Belgian bubbel. A bit on the thin side. Not exceptional, not bad.

A very classic dubbel. Nice spicy and herbal aroma. Slightly too much yeast in the flavour though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown body with a rich off-white head from which emanes hops. Simple malt aroma. Malty caramel flavor with an herbal interlude that is completed by a light bitter finish. Very well done and interesting, remains very simple though.

Maybe its this bloody flu i have, but it was hard to detect anything else but brown sugar amd some sweet candy. Really fizzy (like coca-cola fizzy) on the tongue, with a metallic finish, not really what i was hoping for, dissapointing.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2004 Sampled draught at Man in the Moon, Stockholm.
Dark brown. Sweet and sugary. SOme very light roastiness and fruitiness. Clean mouthfeel. Dominated by sugar, sugar, sugar and sugar. How come I used to like this beer?
Old rating: Bottled. Very dark brown. Lightly herbal aroma. Rather dry, lightly roasty. Stylish and pleasant, a touch vinuous and rather clean. Complex, yet restrained with some salty licorice in the finish. (84/4/8/4/14)

Had this at Kulminator in Antwerp on 5-14-03. 1995 vintage. Dark brown in color with a decent tan head. Chocolate, malt, rubber and medicinal herbs in the aroma. The taste was more pleasing with chocolate, malt, licorice and spices coming out. Much better taste than smell. Improved as bottle went on.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Large frotthy white head which lasted nicely. Not much lacing. Dark brown, kind of hazy. Regular Belgian ale aromas, with moderate yeastiness. Good smelling-beer, what you'd expect from Belgians. Not a lot of flavour. Body was medium to full, and nice creamy mouthfeel. Nice finish which topped it off. Overall, good beer. Thanks BeerPrince!
