Brodzislaw (17) - POLAND - MAR 23, 2015
Pierwszy „belg”, nabyty z niemieckiego dyskontu w promocji dla tubylczej ludności na terenie III RP. Kolor piękny – mocnej herbaty/wiśniowy/rubinowy klarowny. Piana beżowa z drobnych i średnich pęcherzy szybko opadła do małej warstwy. Aromat to słody w połączeniu z nut ą owocową i lekkim alkoholem. Smak nieco wytrawny, z odrobina karmelowej słodyczy. Wysokie wysycenie potęguje goryczkę, która daje efekt szczypania na obrzeżach języka. Piwo bardzo pijalne.

Foffern (1384) - Bodř, NORWAY - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle at home. Has a deep mahogany color, and is completely clear. It all is topped with a creamy and large khaki-colored foam. Sweetish aroma that is filled with dried fruit, leather, caramel. chocolate, Belgian yeast, grass and hazelnut. The taste is also quite sweet with more tones of the Belgian yeast, bread, brown sugar and wood. Mouth feel is wonderful velvety, and bitterness is at a low level. This is a sweet and malty dubbel, just as it should be. In addition it’s fairly easy drinking in my opinion.

thirstyrabbit (1320) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 28, 2015
Bottle. Dark copper body, medium head. Sweet aroma with brown sugar and chocolate cake. Taste has sweet dark malts and more sweet chocolate cake. Mouthfeel could be a bit fuller. Very interesting Dubbel - not resembling the classics too much but enjoyable in its own way.
