330 mL bottle shared by ebone1988 for the mother fucking yellow book. The pour is a dark ruby color with a thin cap of egg shell colored head that falls to a frothy collar,waving some great lace behind. The aroma is surprising. It’s dark fruit and heavy malts. It’s everything I love about a quad, advertised in a dubbel. Great sweet malts, and a lovely raisin and caramel balance really set this one up to be good. It’s sweet, but not overly so, and there are plenty of fruits to help balance it out. The flavor is definitely more robust. There is a strong maltiness to it. It’s a nice bitter roasty malt. It’s got a nice burnt chocolate malt that really rounds it out nicely. There is a nice fruitiness that is lovely. The mouth feel is thicker and nicely carbonated with a lingeringly sweet malt and bright fruitiness. It’s really well balanced, and I’m a fan.

Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is nice. Fruity, raisins, spice, quad like, bubblegum, caramel. Appearance is brown, off white head, clear but dark. Taste is nice, slight raisins, dry, caramel, fruit but more nutty, roasted malt, very roasty, interesting. Mouthfeel is dry, very dry, medium body, light carbonation, roasty, almost burned aftertaste. Overall, this is probably the best Dubbel I’ve tasted.

Hamirubi (563) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - JUN 2, 2016
33cl bottle at home (2 VI 2016). A classic abbey dubbel from Belgium, dark almost black coloured yet with a dark red gloom. A huge frothy beige collar tops the brew and is quite long lasting. The nose already spots the alcoholic body, with port, red wine and dark red fruits hints. Belgian yeasts and some malts are very present too. There is sweetness in the flavours with a caramel, toffee or chocolate roundness. This nose is very inviting for sure. The mouthfeel actually is quite sweet. The sugar and alcohol comes in first; not subtle at all. A medium carbonation and a softening bitterness follows. The spiritful body is rather dry, hinting at cognac or whisky, even brandy. The ending is not that long lasting. The fruity and chocolate features now appear to be artificial - which I dislike in this brew. There is some leather in there as well, maybe some nuts (hinting at that dryness). Yet, this is a pretty nice abbey dubbel.

Pours murky mid brown with aggressive head. Classic trappist aroma. Less caramel and sweet malt/treacle than other trappists with a hint more bitterness. Alcohol ever present as expected. Some bitterness in the finish not expected.

Ok, have to admit that this one doesn’t live up to expectations. The metallic-iron notes are overwhelming. Ok, yeast is nice, head is nice, appearance is nice, but when it tastes like licking a battery, something is wrong.

Woc (102) - BELGIUM - APR 17, 2016
This beer got me by surprise, I just pulled something from the fridge without looking so I wasn’t expecting anything like that. Nice slightly beige head which stays, nice dark brown color. Aroma of dried fruits and caramel. The taste is full, strong and earthy. Great beer for winter times when you need to get warm.

AdolfoCC (153) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - APR 16, 2016
Servida en un tulipán. APARIENCIA: de color cobrizo con destellos rojizos a contraluz, se observa cristalina y algo de actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma color marfil, de buena retención, de burbujas compactas. AROMA: muy dulce; algo de azúcar mascabado, caramelo, notas de frutos oscuros maduros, ligeramente se aprecia el alcohol. SABOR: de entrada el dulzor de las maltas, caramelo, azúcares quemados, azúcar mascabado, seguido de frutos oscuros maduros y ligeras notas vinosas con presencia del alcohol en boca que no es nada agresivo; el retrogusto queda un amargor leve, con notas del lúpulo amaderado, seco y no astringente. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo ligero con carbonatación moderada baja. RESUMEN: Una buena cerveza apegada al estilo, con cierto grado de complejidad.
