3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Heavy malty, roasted, dark bread and sweet. Very dark red, nearly no head at all! The flavor is first sweet, then a hint of bitterness comes along the way but disappears very fast in the short duration. On the palate the beer is dry and watery at the same time (but no negative washiness). Light to medium body, lively carbonation. Very nice one, have to get me a few more...

I have realized that I am a big fan of Dubbels. This tasty sweet brew was a very smooth and enjoyable. I would drink one of these with just about any meal.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft Blackfriars. Drak brown in colour with a fluffy beige head. Aroma- dark fruits, caramle malts. Rich flavour of caramle malts, mollasses, rasins and dark plummy fruits with a prolonged sweet maltyness. This is balanced very well with spicy yeasty dry finish. Better on draft than bottled version.

Large bottle - Corked - Pours ruby red with a tiny head. Fruit-malt aroma with a tiny trace of blackcurrent. That blackcurrent hint is also present in the flavour with the malt shining through. A short enough finish with no particular bite. Nice and easy to drink.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2007 Draught, De Kuppe, Bruges, New Year’s Eve. Deep mahogany with a reddish halo and a blanket of tan suds that goes the distance. Nose is sweetish, possibly with a pinch of spice. Delicately spicy licorice maltiness. A bit middle of the road, but approaching tastiness. (Re-rate 01/06/07) Soft and spicy. Black pepper and coriander. Surprisingly similar in taste to the Blond. Nuts and a sniff of smoked malt in the nose. Creamy palate. Not bad at all.

Pours nicely with rich dark brown color. A bit bitter but also with a hint of caramel flavour that leads to a balanced overall taste.
