3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is quite a fair dubbel. Much better than the blonde. Sweetness is balanced with roasty flavours and lingering bitterness. Good and tiny price.

Dark brown with a white head. The aroma has a lot of fruit, malt and caramel. The flavor has a nice sweetness to it with a lot of Belguim spice. Well balanced and easy drinking.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark reddish brown colour with tiny head. Aroma od dark fruits, roasted malts, some hebs. The same is flavour with little bitter and malty - smoked aftertaste. Good beer but not superlative.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 750 ml (only 2 quid from the local tesco!). Pours clear, dark ruby with hints of brown. Head is quite significant and light tan in colour. Lacing is also quite prominent. Very smokey, meaty aroma at the front backed up with wood, herbs and spices. Brown sugar and molasses also prominent alongside hints of banana and dark fruits, reminiscent of a dark german lager. So far so good, and surpassing the blonde by some way! Taste is a little harder to discern - malts rush to the forefront bringing bread, cereal and small hints of caramel. Some raisins and other dark fruits form the subtler middle notes. Small bitter malty notes to finish, along with more cereal All a little too subdued overall, and an overtly watery feel predominates much of the experience. Generally good on the palate with the smooth, medium body and moderate carb, no complaints. Was perhaps expecting something more interesting in the taste, but decent overall, especially that aroma. Just prefer my belgians to be a bit more flavoursome I suppose.

Bottle 0.33l. Clear very dark mahogany liquid with soft beige head. Medium body and carbonation. A bit alcoholy. Annoying sweetness, wine taste, but ok for the price.
