Petrus Double Brown Ale is a top-fermented dark beer. Brewed with pure spring water and carefully selected hops and malts. The dark beer with its subtle and slightly caramelized flavour is preferably served cool.

Alengrin (2180) - BELGIUM - SEP 20, 2014
The dark counterpart of Petrus Blond and again one of the beers added to the range when it was restyled some years ago. Typical abbey dubbel with yellowish white, very regular, stable foam and very dark burgundy colour, clear. Aroma of candied cherries, elderberry, sweet apple, coffee grounds, liquorice, cinnamon and lots of DMS (red cabbage). Sweet and straightforwardly caramelly taste, candi sugar, retronasal DMS (hate it!) and some soft roasted bitterness in the end - which I do not expect and do not even welcome in a dubbel. Sugary sweetness also cloys, the cheap grassy hops do not have enough power to overcome that. Boring and completely redundant beer. Stick to the sour Petrus beers, guys!

stevoj (2257) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Initial gush of foam when opening bottle. Pours out reddish brown with very small, oily head. Dried fruits, runes dominate the aroma and taste. Overall sweet nature on this. More fruit and some yeast on the finish.
