3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(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.

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.

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)
