3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice brown color with fine warm orange shine and with a creamy nutty brown head. Intens malty aroma with a light burned accent and hints of nuts and a forrest like eartyness. On the middelpallet there are some forrest-berries accents and a slight sweet touch. The taste is malty, light-sweet and has a fine bitterness of nut-peel and touches of of the burned crust of milk bread and toffee.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yellow-brown head, fast gone; cloudy orange-brown beer. Strange nose, reminiscent of deep-frying fat & pickles; must be some acid here - fatty acids? Dark malts obvious. Sweet and sourish taste; grains, wood, point of (I think lactic) acid; bready finish. Sticky MF, well bodied, certain tartness. OK dubbel-brown, just not very exciting.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle conditioned. Chestnut brown with a fog of yeast, thin but lasting cream head and moderate condition. Faintly oxidised and woody initially in the nose with some chocolate malt and yeasty dubbel notes as it warms. A little too soft, sweet and malt heavy in the mouth with hints of coconut and chalky yeast. Long lingering toffee malt and yeast in the finish.

Strong sweet malty rye and bread aroma. Cloudy, brown coloured with a lasting thick head. Taste is quite malty again, rye, a hint of fruit and very sweet. More bitter in the finish. Very dry. Okay, but unbalanced.
