Du grand art! D’abord c’est l’effervescence sans retenue, puis les arômes d’alcool, de malts caramels et de houblons subtils qui frappent. Lorsqu’on la boit, c’est le malt caramélisé ou légèrement grillé qui envoûte le palais. L’astringence est toujours là et une bonne amertume prend le dessus sans gêner le goût. Le verre fait ressortir des effluves qui envoûtent le buveur. On ne peut pas faire autrement que de terminer le verre. Des filets de mousses demeurent sur les parois du verre vide! Comme après un bon repas, on s’endort un peu...

geertvdhelm (1) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2015 does not count
Pours very nice, dark brown with a nice foamy head. Smell is sweet, candy-like with some wood tints in the back. Taste is also somewhat candy-like, more licorice in the end. Very soft down the throat

Cybion (92) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2015
Bottle, 330 ml. Pours dark, reddish brown and a little murky. Head is light tan, frothy and doesn’t stick around for long. Some carbonation visible. Fairly standard dubbel aroma of muscavado, molasses, wholemeal bread and caramel initially, with maybe a touch of dark fruit around the edges. Alcohol isn’t too prominent so far. Some slightly spicy notes begin to emerge after this has been sitting for a few minutes, and a touch of vanilla perhaps. Taste is less sweet than I expected with some more bitter, possibly even roasted malt notes coming to the forefront, with a slight touch of coffee even, though none of these are very potent. Little non-descript and water after the initial hit sadly, though the finish is long and sticky with the usual bread or cereal notes lingering. Alcohol warmth is subtle and pleasant. Medium body and oily texture with only a little bit of carb. Sadly another one in which the aroma outperforms the taste.

ThreeCats (635) - ISRAEL - APR 25, 2015
Clear brown with lots of ruby highlights and a big tan head. Aroma of dark fruit, rich caramel, toffee, dark brown sugar, hint of roast. Taste a little thin, kind of disappointing after the nose. Roast, some sweetness (but not enough), some raisins, a good alcoholic warmth down the throat. Roasty and dryish finish.

Aroma is sweet and boozy, taste starts with wood, fades into spicy yeast, with a red wine aftertaste. I like this one a lot.
