Love the frosted glassware from Chaucers in London. Very very dark almost black pour. Little head. Dark malty coffee and chocolate scent. Very thick. Malty roasted chocolate. Excellently balanced. A joy to drink. By far the best beer I’ve had in quite some time. Some fruit. Reminds me just a bit of Xmas cake.

Bottle at BierMarket. Dark Brown cola colour with an aroma of licorice, root beer, and some florals. Smooth palate with a bit of bite and a taste of ginger, cola, caramel... reminds me some of the aventinus. I liked it a lot!

Opaque dark brown with an ample off-white head. Really strong, rich and complex aroma. Ripe fruit, anice and butterscotch. Beginning is mildly sweet, giving way to a burnt toffee (candi sugar), bubblegum and mild necco wafer (anice) flavor. Finish is dry yeast and some roasted malt. Medium bodied with sharp feeling, mild carbonation. Overall, a nice, complex dubbel with a really outstanding aroma. Probably one of my favorite dubbels to date.

davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - JAN 23, 2008
Appearance: dark mahogany color with reddish tones. Great head, some rocky, beige and lasting. Aroma: dark malts and sugar. Intensive ripe-fruit’s smells with reminiscences of blackberries, plums, strawberry, dark-raisins, oranges in syrup and figs. As well some cinnamon and clove. Flavor: semi-toast and caramel malts start, an intensive and persistent cherry’s reminiscence and slight yeast’s touch. Other ripe-fruit’s touch, such as plums, blackberries, figs and raisins. Is incredible that the cherries isn’t an ingredient, the flavor remember me an cherry-liquor. Sweet flavor but not sickly. Others sweet-spiciness touches like cinnamon, clove and wood. Toasty and warming final that balanced the taste. Some coffee’s grains aftertaste. Palate: mediumbody and semi-oily texture. Light to medium carbonation. Exquisite, nice cherry’s touch, own character, complex and fruity beer. Unforgettable taste. (1,5 years after the declared expired date in the bottle).

Buonissima birra! Splendido cappello di schiuma, odore fantastico, sapore ancora meglia di frutta e frutta secca, finale non molto persistente e delicato, una delle migliori dubbel mai bevute!

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2005 Bottle, Brussels, May 2005. Head is initially large, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is hazy dark brown, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread, caramel, chocolate), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of toffee and raisin. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly bitter, lightly acidic. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety/creamy texture, lively carbonation. Again, as with the Bruin (Prima Melior), this outperformed expectations and remains a favorite of mine for Belgian dubbels/browns.
