Picked up a bottle on my brother’s recommendation. Poured a deep chestnut color with a very tall rocky head. Fruity aroma with some yeast and vanilla cookie. Taste unmistakably chocolate and lightly cherry. Small bit or a roasty finish. Smooth texture. Very lightly carbonated. A nice beer. Very smooth and mellow compared to most American brown ales.

Bottle, 0.33l. Clear brown colour with average sized beige head. Average carbonation. Aroma of caramel, fruit with a hint of coffee. Taste of roasted malt and sweet fruits. Bitter-sweet aftertaste. Overall good beer.

Karmel, delikatna paloność, suszone owoce (głownie śliwka). Słodkie, niestety też nieco pustawe w smaku. Alkohol nieźle ukryty, wysycenie średnie do wysokiego.

0.33 l bottle. Pours brown color with no head. Toffee, roasted malts, and fruity notes in aroma. Roasted malts and fruits rule in taste. Medium finish, lively carbonation, medium body.

Confirming my general dislike for Belgian beers. Not offensive, but the aftertaste familiar to many Belgian beers.

330 ml bottle. Pours a clear brown with a beige head. Aroma of clean yeast. Medium body and carbonation. The taste is malty with caramel, not overly complex with a light to medium sweetness but a nice brew.

Pongauer (59) - Maassluis, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2016
A very thin bodied brown beer with minimal head. Pretty sweet and not too much carbonisation. Not a bad recipe, just not my style.

Brown color. Smells of dark caramel. Super sweet with some hoppiness, roasted nuts, phenols. Has a bad aftertaste. Tastes like a cup of bad coffee with four spoons of sugar. Probably the worst dubbel on the market. Don’t know why it is so popular.

MikeBeermaster (321) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JUL 11, 2016
Aromat to przede wszystkim ciemne owoce - głównie śliwka, ale i zaznacza się karmel, ziarna kawy i odcukrowa likierowość (żeby nie powiedzieć bimber xD). Piwo barwy ciemnobrunatnej z rubinowymi refleksami i niską, szybko opadającą pianą. W smaku ciężkie, z popielatą goryczką, ale i akcentami cukru trzcinowego, niezbyt dojrzałych owoców kawowca. Lekka chlebowość przemawia w finiszu. Niezłe, tylko pij w odpowiedniej temperaturze, bo zmęczy.

Fules (640) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUL 10, 2016
Habja krémszínű, közepes, sokáig megmarad. Illata kávés jegyeket mutat. Íze kávés, enyhén gyümölcsös, pici malátás édességgel, közepes komlós keserűsséggel, ami sokáig megmarad. Közepesen telt.
