pityu (620) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 3, 2016
Bottle - Deep brown colour, medium beige head with fair retention and lacing. Decent belgian yeast aromas with a lot of red fruits, some caramel, candy and honey. Taste is sweet, fruity with toffee, some dried plum, yeasty notes, low hop bitterness. Medium body, soft carbonation, a bit watery texture, sweet finish with a tart aftertaste. Good dubbel, but not above average.

RedSox2004 (1629) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JAN 5, 2016
Deep mahogany color with a one-finger tan head and minimal lace. Dark fruit aromas - fig, raisin, grape - with wood, earth and brown sugar. Fruity sweetness is almost tart, with flavors that matched the aroma and included some caramel malt notes. Medium to full body, minimal carbonation, somewhat thin mouthfeel and a subtle lingering tartness in the finish.

Cerveza de color Rojo oscuro con una cabeza beige fina. Aroma a malta, caramelo tostado con nota de chocolate. Sabor afrutado de frambuesa, cereza, malta caramelo con un toque ligeramente picante de lúpulo y un final ligeramente dulce. Es una Dubbel muy buena, está bien equilibrada y fácil de beber, me gusto.

sucharek147 (140) - Dębica, POLAND - NOV 25, 2015
Barwa rubinowa, piwo klarowne. Piana drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa, dość obfita. W aromacie całkiem sporo karmelu, a do tego nuty tostowe i opiekane. W smaku jest zdecydowanie słodowe, w zasadzie powtarza się to co w aromacie. Chmiel wyczuwalny minimalnie, goryczka praktycznie żadna. Ogólnie jak dla mnie piwo nie wyróżniające się niczym szczególnym, ot zwyczajny dubbel.

A nice beer for the colder period of the year. Caramel candy, roasted tastes dominate.
