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.

Wordeful fruity, malty aroma. Slightly hazy ruby brown color, with a finely bubbled beige head that just won’t stop. It laces. Starts with a plumy raisin flavor, that mellows out into a fruity sweetness, but a light sweetness. Caramelized? Perhaps, but I’d say more of a slightly simmered, al dente, fruit. Wonderful, in any event. It finishes nicely, and I would say there is some hop, but it is definitely sidelined. Great stuff.

thebeertourist (4781) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 5, 2007
Bottle. Deep red brown with a big yellow-brown head. Burnt caramel aroma, hints of bread. Very sweet, but with hints of fruit and nuts. Somewhat sirupy, feeling a bit heavy. On the sweet side, but with some complexity.

Brown and almost clear beer. Has a light-brown big head, medium lasting. Aroma has some burnt notes. FLavor is sweetish and sour, lactic?.

Braudog (5647) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - DEC 20, 2006
Draft at the Green Leafe Cafe, Williamsburg. Dark brown with a quickly dying head. Richly, richly malty, very much like a liquified caramelized sugar beer. Did I say strongly malty?

maeib (8664) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2006
Bottled - Criterion Leicester. A hazy, dark brown coloured beer with a creamy off-white head. The aroma is malty with chocolate notes as well as some fruity berries. The taste is sweet. There is more chocoalte and some candy sugars. Quite a heavy moussey beer but still nice.

Tranquillity (1410) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2006
Dark brown colour, thick but small head with a brown colour. Aroma of dark bread, plums and vanilla. Really strong and fulfilling sugary taste with raisins, rum and plum. REally good!

TheBeerGod (5224) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2006
Bottle. Dark brackish brown body with a sturdy mocha colored froth on the surface. Nose is chocolate notes, cocoa, dusty yeast notes, and dark fruit notes. Taste is dark fruits, soft alcohol, chocolate notes, caramel, and light yeast notes. Delicious! There a bit of tartness towards the back end of this. Light but dense carbonation. Light medium overall feel on the palate. Finishes with a thinner chocolate and cocoa flavor, softer alcohol, and dark fruits. Nice!

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - NOV 23, 2006
Pours a deep brown with Ruby highlights topped by a lacy minimalist head. Aroma is caramel, coffee and chocolate with a character that is not unlike Rochefort 8. The body is med with lite CO2. The flavors are medicinal, kahlua, sweet cherries and caramel. Some drying coffee-like bitterness in the finish. A very unique and enjoyable dubbel.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2006
(Bottle 33 cl) Beautiful, clear reddish mahogany with a tall, dense, beige head. Sweetish aroma of roasted malt and burned caramel. Medium body with very sweet roasted malt and brown sugar or burned caramel. Subdued bitterness. 221106

Isn’t this a dobbelbock? Very sweet, nice full taste. Yet no noticable banana or melon tones. I really don’t care about the label here. For some time I thought this was bottled for finnish liqueor store Alko because of the cheap looks, but it seems to be quite big in Belgium and France.
