Alengrin (3030) - BELGIUM - SEP 20, 2014
Abbey dubbel made for the GB supermarkets, very cliché, with a caramelly character adorned with some liquorice and some roasted bitterness in the finish. Low profile and probably an alias of Saint-Benoît Brune..

Nice Belgian dubbel beer. Sweet, but not overly sweet. With some dark fruits and spices. One of the first more special beers I ever had.

thebeertourist (5073) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2007
Bottle. Mahogny with a creamy light brown head. Burnt malts and yeast aroma. Good bready notes as well. Sweet and bready flavours with burnt maltiness. A decent dubbel.

reakt (949) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2007
Bottle from Kris wines. Brownish with an off white head. Nose of malt, yeast, some cola and berries also. Taste is much the same with hints of wood and spice, ginger in fact. Pretty much what I expected, a run of the mill Bruin.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2007
A Sim rate (bottle from Kris Wines thanks to Reakt): Roasty, spicy, brown bread aroma. Tart, slightly metallic flavour with malt, wheat. Quite bitter with a very bland finish. OK, but not much body or depth to it.

Bottle. Unclear medium brown color with a average frothy fair lacing mostly diminishing beige head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, chocolate, fruit, brown sugar, moderate yeasty, spices. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

oh6gdx (22105) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 7, 2007
Bottled. Dark brown colour with mediumsized brown head. Chocolate, malts, some raisins and some roasted notes in the aroma. Flavour is the same, but feels a bit flat. Didn’t age well.

Kulminator bbf 2004. Theres quite a bit of fruit still in here, candy sugar is also noteable, however theres a dustyness that i assume is from age, meaning i dont think it has aged well.
