330ml bottle. Pours a hazy red-brown with a huge, frothy, long lasting, beige head that leaves plenty of lacing. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, overripe fruit, brown sugar, wine and mild spice. Sweet flavour of dark fruit, caramel malt, spice, yeast, brown sugar and warming alcohol with a dry, surprisingly bitter finish. Medium body with an oily texture and lively carbonation. Nice.

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. Itís dark fruit and heavy malts. Itís 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. Itís 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. Itís a nice bitter roasty malt. Itís 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. Itís really well balanced, and Iím 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 Iíve tasted.

Hamirubi (569) - 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 doesnít 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.

This beer got me by surprise, I just pulled something from the fridge without looking so I wasnít 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.
