3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home split with Sarah. I’ve been sitting on this for a while. Nice clear chestnut / red coloured pour with a lasting cream coloured head. Aroma is woody, musty, touch of brett like funk and some choc. Flavour is composed of earthy hay, caramel biscuity malts, musty, touch of apple. Definitely a bit of infections, but it remains an interesting drinkable beer. Paalte is effervescent, touch of sweeetness. Lingering funk and woody grains.

Actually rating the new partizan abbey beer from keg. Very new, so not sure it's on rate beer yet. Gorgeous cloudy dark red amber colour. Deep fruity smell with a hit of hops. Well rounded flavour. Delicious.

Bottle. Dark brown with an off white foam. Aromas are chocolate and raisins with spices. Cola and toasted malts with peppery alcohol. Fairly plummy with yeast. Flavours are sweet cola and toffee with a woody bitterness. Spicy with raisin fruitiness. Spritzy yeast on the palate. Pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle from Ales By Mail, served in a Teku glass. Bottled on 19-08-2013. Beautiful dark copper, with some purple and magenta tinges, with big, frothy, forever lasting yellow-ish head. Intense aroma of burnt caramel, warm toffee, dark fruits, coffee powder, light spicy yeast notes. Very nice coffee bitterness during the taste, less spicy and more earthy compared to the aroma, with a toasted malts and caramel component. Dark fruits flavour follow suit, with some grapes and red berries notes. Slightly warming, but no presence of the alchool at all. Dry and moderately sweet finish. Average to lively carbonation, light to medium body and oily texture. Not a typical dubbel, that’s for sure, but I quite like it to be honest! Solid.

330ml bottle from BeerRitz. Dark brown, ggod beige head. Spicy yeasty caramel aroma. Toasted yeasty coffee flavour. Coffee aftertaste. This one is a mix of styles. I don’t really like it.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from the brewery. Very dark reddish brown, clear, but dark, slightly off white foam head. Nose is roasted malt, rye bread, grain husk, chocolate, freshly baked bread crust, slight black coffee. Taste is roasted malt, coffee, roasted bitterness, chocolate, slight ruby ale, green leaf hop bitter. Strangely not getting much of the fruitier notes, that I’m sure this had when I had it fresh at the brewery. Quite dry and roast.
