2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy darkish amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel and fruit. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt with fruity notes and a touch of hops. Very high carbonation, in spite of which the mouthfeel is rather thin. Clearly, it is not the best Abbey Dubbel I have tasted, but I have tried far worse examples.

Flaske delt på hytta: etter en uke i Belgia er det ingenting ved denne som minner om det de streber etter iflg. omtalen. Ufrisk aroma som minner om vissen løvetann. Kortvarig skum, liten munnfylde og kortvarig ettersmak. Smaken er heller ikke noe å bruke mange ord på.

Bottle from Netto in Copenhagen, pours a mid-dark orange brown with a thin head and aromas of honey, orange and candy. Dry-sweet with a nutty, lightly tart and woody taste, a faint yeastiness and some earthy wood in the finish. Nicely chewy and warming.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Brown, Big head. Smell is sweet malts, fruits and a little plastic. Taste is a little authentic, with banana and some Belgian notes, but it's not really there yet.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(50 cl bottle) Slightly reddish brown, almost clear, with a small beige head that dwindles rapidly. Aroma is full of fruits (raisins and other dried fruits), bramble, port/madeira wine, nuts and caramel. Plus just a hint of grassy/herbal hops for the good balance. Has a metallic touch when served too cold. Taste is medium sweet (as could be expected from an abbey dubbel) with low bitterness. A little sticky, the higgh abv not very well-hidden, and lacking a longer finish, but overall a respectable take at that classic style.
