gyllenbock (4444) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2013

KoNrRiI (442) - Århus, DENMARK - DEC 10, 2013
0.5 bottle. Light brown color with a reddish tinge, small and off-white head which leaves a seriously thick lacing. Aroma is mostly malty with some dried fruits and a small touch of typical, Belgian yeasts. Taste is bittersweet with the former dominating the mix, sweetness comes mostly from malts and bitterness is connected to this dried fruits part; alcohol is noticeable as well. Medium to full body, slightly creamy texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is more astringent than the rest and bitterness does not subside so quickly; the hints of dried fruits are quite perceptible, especially some berries. Overall the beer is really good, has its own unique character, and is great even though it does not fit the typical character of a Belgian ale.

A beer with a nice first taste and that pours very nicely in the glass. But it lacks thickness to reach a good balance in the length. Aftertaste is too bitter.

PapaVillum (400) - Valby, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2013
50 cl, flaske, 8,0 %, nydt på Svane Pub på Strandvejen i Hellerup, 15. november 2013. Mahogni-farvet uklar finsk Dubbel efter belgisk forbillede med fin offwhite-farvet skumtop på 1 1/2 cm. Dejlig duft af tørret frugt, rosin, sveske, koriander og andre krydderier og belgisk gær, gætter jeg på. Utrolig vellykket fyldig smag. Sødme og alkoholbitterhed i skøn symfoni. Ikke lang eftersmag, men god og tør. Man smager krydderierne og gæren. Pænt afstemt kulsyreindhold - simpelthen en kompleks og vellykket øl. Måske den bedste Dubbel, jeg til dato, har smagt. Finland rocks! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A pretty good attempt at recreating the Belgian style, but not quite there yet.
