kaserov (226) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 6, 2016
Color Coca-Cola, con reflejos rojizos si le da la luz, super turbio, con capa de espuma de un blanco sucio, amarronado, de dos dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación media tirando a alta (menos presente en boca). Aroma a levadura, malta tostada y algo que se cuela entre cada olfateo y que no es muy agradable (no sé qué elemento es ni qué aporta, pero echa bastante para atrás). El sabor es plano y mínimo, falta malta, falta el toque frutal de la descripción... Dulzor hay, pero tampoco en exceso. El sabor es tan "ni fu ni fa" que soy incapaz de describirlo. Textura acuosa y cuerpo mínimo. Esperaba mucho más de este clásico.

W aromacie owoce - wiśnie, rodzynki, chleb i karmel. W smaku przede wszystkim owoce z aromatu i chleb, lekko wytrawny finisz. Nic ciekawego.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2016 33 cl. bottle. Pours clear dark brown with a medium beige head. Aroma is caramel, roasted, coffee, dried fruits, liquorice. Malts are roasty, hops are floral. Taste is bittersweet (starts with medium sweetness, finishes with light/medium bitterness). Has a medium body with creamy texture. Carbonation is average, finish is long. Actually a bit heavy in the stomach. Overall, it is a nice beer to drink now and then when some change is needed.

Rex_Remes (129) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - SEP 23, 2016
(330ml bottle, Beijing) AROMA: Light nose, soft coffee/toffee, grass, hint of cinnamon, roastiness. APPEARANCE: Dark brown, almost black, good carbonation, fluffy tan head, creamy/oily looking, sticky on glass. TASTE: medium to full bodied, coffee, some bitter sweetness, herbal, touch medicinal, a bit alcohol tasting, astringent. PALATE: crisp and sparkly on front of tongue, a bit biting on the back/sides, lingering dryness and bitterness. OVERALL: A strong, good-looking, vibrant beer, with some good flavor, but ... the balance seems a bit off, with me finding it kind of harsh (minimizing my overall enjoyment). UPDATE: better once it has breathed and warmed up a bit (becomes less bitter/astringent, becomes smoother/creamier). .

Gehbe (268) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - SEP 20, 2016
Pours clear deep ruby-brown with a huge tan head and lovely lacing. Nose of spice, chocolate, dark bread along with some roasty crust notes, dried prunes, raisins, molasses, toffee, nice earthy/smoky and woody notes. Taste: medium to high sweetness accompanied by light crispy/fizzy bitterness; not overly sweet. Medium to full body, high carbonation, pleasant alcoholic warmth, rather sticky. A rich and aromatic dubbel, well balanced and complex.

Freaky_tiki (1066) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 16, 2016
Dumbed down dubbel delights despite dearth of depth & density. In other words, a soft rock version of the style, with everything dialled down to medium. Ok but not worth it considering the heavy hitters from Belgium we can buy in Toronto.

Not your average Abbey Double. First it only 6.5 abv. It’s also much less malty then I am used to. Their Blond ale is readily available and I consider it a little more true to it’s style, Belgian Ale but still only 6.6 abv This is fine but nothing to write home about. My main complaint is its lack of maltiness.
