COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Master brewer Alfred Van Roy launched Dobbel PALM in 1947 as a beer for the festive season in order to celebrate the brewery’s bicentenary. He offered it at no extra cost, as a token of appreciation to all his loyal customers. The beer was so successful that he turned it into an annual tradition.

Dobbel PALM is a top-fermentation amber beer with an even more pronounced malty and hoppy character than PALM. With an alcohol content of 5.7%, Dobbel PALM is the ideal connoisseurs’ beer for the festive season.

una birra ambrata di alta fermentazione con un carattere maltato e luppolato ancora più pronunciato rispetto PALM . Con una gradazione alcolica di Dobbel PALM è la birra gli intenditori ideali " per la stagione di festa

The beer has a beautiful amber color, with a little red glow. The beer pours a layer of slightly of white foam. The beer doesn’t poor a lot of foam, and the bulk collapses. A tiny drape of foam remains on top or the beer. The beer is perfectly clear. This fits the color beautifully. The beer has a very nice smell. It is slightly sour, sweet and a little bitter. The different aroma’s are in good balance. I smell a little bitter roast aroma. There is also a nice bittersweet almondy aroma. The beer also has something savory in the smell. This is quite nice, and not like most other beers. I like it. The taste of the beer is also quite nice. The little roast/smokey flavor is also present, so is the little savory sensation. It is a beer that is a good friend of some salty nuts. The taste also has a nice blend between sweet, a little sour and bitter. The bitterness is a little stronger in the taste than it was in the smell, but this is nice. It gives the beer a little more power. It sure is a nice beer to drink on a cold winter night.

Oranjebruin bier met veel schuim. Smaak is licht zoet en licht bitter, verder gewoon bier met een ietwat sterkere smaak.

Sugarcane, grilled grains and malts. I like the frothy malt aftertaste, the rest is sugarwater. Backlog from 2015/02/27.

Not outstanding aroma. Taste a bit roasted malty, with an obvious bitterness.

Orange colored beer! Palm is one of my favorite brands. This is the ’winter’ version of their ’Speciale’ beer. Tasting so nice, I love it.
