3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught @ the brewpub: Reddish brown coloured. Beige medium sized and lasting head. Yeast (yes it is De Dolle), spices, fruit and malt in the nose. Flavour is light alcaholic, friuty and spicy. Has some yeast notes. Ends on a nice alcahol note, that smoothfully warms your lips. The beer lacks a little in complexity and strenghts and nuances in the flavours, but still this is a very nice brew from a very skilled homebrewer. Its very magnanimous of NB to let the winner of the danish championship in homebrewing make a full scale batch.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Muddy brown beer with a foamy tan head. Yeast, malt, dark fruit and berries in the aroma. Heavy and sweet with obvious De Dolle tones (the beer is brewed with De Dolle yeast). Flavor is very full and sticky. Yeasty, malty and hayish with notes of raisins, prunes and berries. Sweet at first with some sourness towards the end. Odd taste thats gets a little cloying in the long run. Still a fine and interesting beer!
Dobbelt Så Brunt (Belgo 8) - Dubbel - 8,3% - Winner of the Danish Homebrewing Championship 2004, bronze at the Scandinavian Championship 2004. Brewed with
yeast from De Dolle Oeral on December 29th 2003.
Sampled from bottle at Danish Beer Festival 2004 (May 16th 2004).
Pours a light muddy colored beer with a foamy tan head (just in the spirit of De Dolle!). Strong aroma of dark malt, spices, pepper and De Dolle yeast.
Flavor is malty and spicy with a dry finish. Foamy mouthfull. An excellent homebrew with evident comparison to the beers from De Dolle!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Nørrebro Bryghus. Served in stemmed stout glass.Hazy brownish red. OK, off-white head with good longevity. The aroma is nicely rounded, warm and vinous. Dark fruits dominate, and some alcohol is noticeable. The taste is impressively, darkly fruity (raisins), and the finish is nice and long. The mouthfeel is soft and pleasant. Drinkability is good for the strength.

Deep brown colour with a fine off-white head.
Malty aroma with notes of spices and raisins.
Intensive flavor with lots of malt and with notes of raisins and chocolate, which ends up with a very balanced bitterness.
