BiereLuc (1259) - Montréal, Quebec, - FEB 15, 2013
Yeux : Nettement brune avec des reflets cuivrés alléchants. Une fine mousse teintée crème est amplifiée par une effervescence régulière à petites bulles. Nez : Vapeurs de rousse bien fraîche, comme un complexe inavoué. Le taux d’alcool de cette double typique n’est pas encore révélé. On voudrait présager son goût par ses arômes, mais le secret persiste. Quelques fruits nous viennent en tête, mais en vain… Bouche : Très goûteuse en entrée, la Floreffe révèle son rare taux d’alcool après quelques secondes seulement. Une pincette de cassonade prédomine sur les autres flaveurs. Une amertume soutenable, bien fidèle à la double fermentation, ramène le dégustateur à l’ordre. Gorge : Le doux pétillement s’éteint pour laisser place à un post-goût épicé qui rappelle une bonne Chouffe. Verdict : La Floreffe se laisse boire en douceur. Voilà une brune qui ne fait pas ombrage à la réputation belge. À essayer chambrée, si l’occasion se présente.

Bierdimpfe (490) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2016
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.

VDuquerroux (1266) - Airvault, FRANCE - JUL 24, 2016
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.

Swaroga (2111) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUL 16, 2016
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.

Bruin cola bruin bier met een goede witte schuim kraag. Ruikt mout, gist. Smaakt zoet, belgisch.

Ruikt ranzig. Smaakt niet best. Dus ja, matig bier. En nu nog 80 tekens opvullen

MelvinKalksma (996) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - JUL 3, 2016

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.

pityu (681) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 26, 2016
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.

Leini (1807) - SWEDEN - JUN 17, 2016
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.
