Best before date 05/2011. Lot 1892 07 37. An ’8’ per the label, but no pabv listed there. Brewed and bottled by Duvel Moorgaat NV, Puurs, Belgium. On opening there is a delicate sweet white bread/orange spray, with mild caramel backing, pouring dark, with a higher head than some other Belgian Abbey Ales I could name. There is a roast coffee/anise entry, with what may be leather and a little staleness midpalate, but wait and see. Full bitter.burnt chocolate finish. Sort of a triangle--starts fine, and ends broad, perhaps a tad clunky. Malt seems scorched and the sweetness tails off; if it weren’t so bitter, I’d think it’d be short on the finish. Score is as is, at 4 plus years of age, perhaps 6. Needs to be revisited with a fresh bottle.

Amber color with small brown foam. Aroma of malt and caramel with spicy and fruity notes. Taste is light to medium sweet with medium body. Aftertaste is sweet and pleasant. It should be drank after it sits on room temp. for a few minutes, then you can sense all the aromas.

A brown beer with a very nice head. It has a nice fruity aroma and a very powerful ale taste with quite a lot of bitterness for a belgian beer. Really an enjoyable beer.

Bottle at the airport after a mad dash left us waiting over two hours for a delayed flight. ITs important to keep busy. Pours dark Brown with a Beige head. Caramel, candy sugar and bread dough. Nice balance of sweetness and spice. Full bodied and full flavoured. I like dubbels.

33cl bottle at The Sky Bar, Park Hyatt, Shanghai on 08/06/2015. Poured into a tulip glass. Dark red brown colour with a frothy tan coloured head. Aroma of fruit, caramel and spices. Lively - perhaps overly carbonated. Bittersweet, roasted malt and caramel lingers on the palate.

jamaty (1434) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 13, 2015
Color ámbar. Un dedo de espuma. Agradable olor a caramelo y frutas rojas, principalmente cereza. El sabor sigue al aroma, predominando la fruta sobre el dulce, con un tono de acidez agradable. Esconde muy bien el alcohol. Buena Dubbel.
