33 cL bottle. Pours deep brown with a light red hue and an off-white and lacing head. Aroma is dark malty with notes of canesugar, some yeast and spices, esteric and a minor note of dried fruit (in a Belgian way). Flavour starts subdued sweet with a light malty note turning slowly bitter and esteric towards the end. At all times mellow/mild. Ends with a creamy malt flavour and a slight bitterness in the far finish.

Ungstrup (29208) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2003
[Draft] A brown beer with a good head. It has a very light fruity aroma. And a very nice sweet flavor with notes of fruit, nuts and chocolate and a good palate.

oh6gdx (20274) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 27, 2005
Bottled. Dark brown, almost opaque. Small white head, which disappears quickly. Fruity and yeasty smell. Sweet fruity taste, a bit "bitter" aftertaste, but the bitterness is good as it takes out the sweetness a bit.

Dark brown color, with some red reflex; medium sized creamy head. Average malt and caramel aroma, as well for the flavor; medium low bitterness. Simple but not bad.

2003-06-23, bottle, 4-4-6-3-12=29
Dark amber, simple malt aroma. Medium strength body, well structured, light malt, sweet caramel; ending alcohol touch. Quite boring Dubbel.

The best known of the belgium brown, is remarkedly pleasant for mass market mass produced beer, well balanced with a complex flavour. Good but no means the best
