Bottle. 6.5%. Best before 08.10.16. Pours a clear, golden brown with a tan head. Good lacing. Malty aroma, sweetish, with a dryish/cardboard overtone. Candy-like hint as it warms; molasses. Further warming brings out a light note of dark fruits. Malty flavour, caramel, some dark fruits. Slightly tart finish, malty, with a mild to medium bitterness. Lingering light grassy note. Overall flavourful and well-made. 05.08.15.

Great Belgian dubbel that isn’t too high in alcohol. Awesome dark brown pour with a nice big head. Flavor is sweet caramel.

Aroma is caramel with some fruites. Dark ruby colour with tall white head. Caramel comes to the fore in the taste, some cherry, raisins. Bitterness is low. Overall average, nothing special.

Wygląd świetny - bardzo obfita, gęsta piana. Kremowa. Lacing. Piękna rubinowa barwa. Klarowne. W aromacie na pierwszy miejscu śliwka i alkohol. Owocowe - oprócz śliwki może inne owoce - czereśnie. Z butelki wyraźniej czuć nuty palone, kawowe. Trochę karmelowe. Bardzo dobry, przyjemny aromat. Piwo raczej pełne. Wysokie wysycenie. Niska do średniej goryczki. W smaku owocowe (głównie śliwka), słodkie. Delikatnie rozgrzewający alkohol. Bardzo trafiający do mnie Dubbel.

Brune ambrée, haut col de mousse beige/noisette assez tenace. Nez malté, caramle, noisette. La bouche est sucrée, sur le malt et le caramel. Légère amertume, corps pesant, bonne carbo. Une double assez légère tout à fait dans le style belge.

Aroma is not particularly pungent, subtle burnt caramel and not too much else. Taste is initially quite sweet and malt forward, some mild nutty/raisin flavours, with low bitterness and pretty lively carbonation. Solid but unremarkable.

33cl bottle from beer52.com. A attractive clear chestnut brown pour with a thick cream head; caramel aroma; smooth and creamy in the mouth with an off-sweet, burnt caramel taste; and a creamy finish. A really pleasant Dubbel.
