3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice looking brown beer with slight reddisch shine and fluffy creamy froth. Aroma is smooth and sweet with hints of graprjuse, and some soft spices. The taste is well ballanced, slight sweet and has touches of candi sugar, crème de marron, and hints of grapes. Not the most complex beer but a nice commercial one with a good ballanced taste.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Very dark reddish amber colour with small white head. Aroma is sweet caramel and some roasted malts. A bit hops and plum/raisins in it too. Flavour is raisins/plum (that’s passed it’s prime), along with hops and grass. Unbalanced brew.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottled) Nice dark red color with almost no head. Sweetish, malty aroma with lots of dried fruit. Slightly sour, bitter and acidic, roasted-malty, dried-fruity flavor with a mildly ashy finish. Medium-bodied, sweet-sugary palate with some alcohol burn and not much carbonation. Too sweet to be enjoyable, too sour-ashy to be easy or refreshing. Who is this aimed for??

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown coloured, average light off white head. Rather sweet malty aroma, little caramel like, very smouth. Medium to full body, nicely balanced. Finish is little more bitter, but with some clear sweet-caramel touches. Quiet a good dobbel beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. A sweet brune, along the lines of Leffe, which isn’t a good start. Brown sugar, caramel, yeasty. Quite sweet and a little sticky. Very broing.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, alc. 6.5%.
Dark brown, not much head. Fruity, sweetish aroma, prunes dominate. Fruity, but metallic flavor, quite "bulk dubbel" feeling here. Aftertaste is also quite metallic. Misses yeast twist there (none in the bottom).
