Poured beautifully from the bottle. Nice head that lingered a while. Flavor was at the low end for a Belgian, but overall very nice. Malty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
11.3 ounce bottle from a mixed 6 pack purchased at BevMo in Stockton, CA. This has a nice roasted, sweet, pumpernickel, bready aroma. Light metallic hop aromas are present, too. Quite quaffable. This is an attractivemoderately hazy burgundy-mahogany body, with a nice, attractive, frothy light pecan colored head. Very very sweet, sugary, candy-like caramel/chocolatey start. Light roastiness in the middle. Also has some grapey-vinous flavors present in the middle as well. Very thin-too thin for a dubbel. This is remarkably drinkable and I can see this being a big turnoff for people who dont care for sweet beers. This one is sweet and thin, but its flavorful and drinkable. I dont know how to score this.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled at the Belgian Embassy in Oslo. A clear, deep brown beer with a beige, almost tan head. The nose is mostly cherry-like, with some sour notes as well. Not bad, just a bit shallow. It has a sweel, caramelized flavor with some cellar notes. Medium body and caramel finish. A refreshing beer, but it feels like it was made to please everyone. (070301)

330ml bottle poured mahogany with a caramel-soda colored head; bubbles were small and fizzy. Malty, caramelly, and sweet. Tasted good but overall character was too much like a soda.

Bottle. Roasted Malts, that’s about all I can say, other than how wonderful this beer is. Caramels, slight chocolate tones.

330ml bottle. Slightly hazy deep mahogany body with a beige head. Aroma is sweet, roasty malt. Flavor is sweet, malt, lightly roast, raisin with just a little faint hint of the cellar character from Petrus oude bruin. Nice, but a bit “just malty” character.
