Pours murky red/brown, thin lasting off white head, malty aroma with a hint of hops thrown in. Warming flavours with a smooth finish, I like it. A great beer for a cold night.

Really enjoyable beverage just on room temperature on a winters day. Nice Abv gives way to a nice warmth and the caramel and rasin flavors also add a nice warmth and flavor to the beer that went down extremly well chilling out on a cold day.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, thanks SaintMatty! Hazy orange-brown, small head. Aroama of salted caramel and marzipan. Medium bodied with rounded moutghfeel. A bit spicy with restrained marzipan flavour and salty bitterness. Solid, but with rather shy flavours.

Bottle (tasting at Omhper´s) A clear ruby colour with a small beige head. An aroma of malt, and caramel. The taste is heavy sweet. A medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation and a medium long duration.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark brown with a large, lasting head.
NBose shows caramel, chocolate and bready malt along with an off-putting doughy yeast character.
Similar chocolate malt as a flavour and lots of it. The doughy yeast also carries through, alongside some hot alcohol and a roasty finish.
Carbonation is much too high.
A pretty unorthodox dubbel. A bit rough round the edges though unfortunately.
