jjsint (1663) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2015
Draught at Berthom V, Lyon. Very dark brown with an incredibly beautiful creamy tan head. Very muted aroma: a bit of chocolate and coffee but also a jarring metallic note. Taste is sweet and satisfying, with a nice alcohol burn. A bit of sweet/sour tinge in the finish. Not the best Dubbel I’ve had, but certainly enjoyable.

DraftDodger (631) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2015
Copenhagen 5/9 2015. 75 cl bottle from the airport near Brussels. Pours clear copper brown with big yellowish head. Settles as thick creamy layer of foam with lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is a bit sharp and sourish. A bit spicy as well. A little cinnamon and mustard. Soft carbonation. Taste is strong and spicy. Sharp, sour mustard, yeast, a little metallic alcohol and something burnt. Unexpectedly sharp in flavour for a Bruin - but you do not regret that you bought a big bottle.

metalspice (389) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - SEP 4, 2015
Klart rødbrunt med off-white skum. Lukter svisker, brent sukker og ristet korn. En mørk bitterhet preger smaken, noe frukt og malt. Gjennomsnittlig munnfølelse.
