3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 33 cl) My version with red label and 7% ABV. "Heavenly"!, was the first word that came to mind while sipping this letting the flavours hit my palate. Evoking sentiments of chocolate and surprisingly even more licorice. A dark and full-bodied beer and a very classical Dubbel indeed. 200394

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)

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. Rating: 6-4-6-4-12-3.2. 070511
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
