(Bottle 65 cl) Courtesy of tertons. Hazy reddish brown with a beige head. Burned malt aroma with both yeast and alcohol - perhaps also a a whiff of wood. Quite full-bodied with sweetish hard roasted malt and vanilla. Subdued bitterness but a very warming alcohol in the finish. 260708

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled (thanks omhper!). Dark hazy brown colour, mediumsized head. Aroma is plum, some dark fruits and roasted hints. Also weak notes of alcohol. Flavour is alcohol, hay, brutal berries and spices along with some glueishness. Finish is rather hoppy and caramellish. Nice one, though it suffers a bit of the glueish alcohol dilemma.

Bottled. Mahogany colour. Sweet and lightly almondy with some banana. Richly malty, toffeeish and raisiny, slightly salty finish. Big, flavourful brew, but too sweet.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2012 4th April 2009
Opaque black beer. Foamy tan head which tastes of toffee and molasses. Soft palate. Dark malt with undertones of burnt caramel. Something spicy going on - ginger? Semi dry and semi bitter finish. Tasty beer!

Hazy dark red-brown beer. Creamy off white head. Light airy soft palate. Creamy malt, tastes like a wine barrel beer - with a mellow red wine flavour in the creamy mid. Finishes soft and dry with just a dash of spice. Nice beer that drinks well below 11.5%

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2009 Bottle, 22oz. A clear, dark ruby beer with a dense, two-finger head lasting for a long time, and leaving nice lacings. A bit sourish on the nose, with dried fruits and caramel doing most of the work. Sweet, caramel flavor with hints of sourness, berries, some spices, chocolate and coffee, and a little hint of licorice. Full-bodied, and maybe a bit too effervescent. Sweet, spiced finish. Anyway, it’s sure a world class dubbel, complex and well-tasting. 090619
