Aroma is fruity - figs, raisins, and caramel. Pours a reddish brown with a rapidly disisapating beige head and minimal lacing. The taste is modeately sweet and like the nose, fruity (dark fruit, raisins, and figs). Also present are hints of caramel, molasses, some bready notes in the middle and a grainy finish. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, I found this to be a very enjoyable beer.

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.

Bill Becker (610) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Pours a dark brown with a little red going on. Head of foam and lacing is impressive. Loads of caramel malt in the smell. Some toffee and chocolate as well. Tastes sweet from the caramel malt, almost like some candi sugar is involved. Beyond that, toffee and chocolate with *some* cardboard. .not too intrusive with the latter, thankfully. Creamy smooth mouthfeel that resembles a nitro pour. My first impression was that I was going to hate it; I am glad things turned around.

Gangstergafje (369) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2015
The beer has a very nice appearance. The color is dark brown, with an orange/reddish tint. The beer is quite clear. The beer pours a nice layer of quite rough almond colored foam. After a while the bulk collapses and a drape of very creamy foam remains on top of the beer. The beer has a very strong smell. It is nice. The aromas are very special to me. I can’t really bring home all the aromas. There is a little sour aroma. I immediately think of wild yeast, not my favorite. Here is also a bitter aroma. The smell is a combination of sweetness, bitterness and sourness. I can’t really make up any of the aromas. I can smell some alcohol and s little oak wood. After a lot of sniffs i am reminded of port. There is also a little caramel smell. The smell is complicated and not bad. The taste is also quite nice. the beer is very oaky. Again there is this bitter, sweet and sour inferno. It has a nice sweet alcohol flavor. It also reminds me of port. There is an almond hint. I also taste some caramel and syrup, very nice. The beer is quite nice, but the sourness keeps me from giving it a higher score. I must say that, in combination with an Italian risotto, the sourness is balanced out.

Bottle. Very deep read with a fine head. Malty, with light sourness. Very nice and drinakable. The sourness adds a touch of distinction to what might otherwise be a run of the mill beer.

Icedwarf (917) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2015
Zwart bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is ietwat zuur en tevens lichtzoet, vreemde combinatie die me niet kan bekoren. Niet lekker.

Review: Bottle of Petrus Dubbel Bruin Ale Ale: 6.50% ABV Petrus Double Brown Ale is a top-fermented dark beer. Brewed with pure spring water and carefully selected hops and malts. The appearance was of a very dark and deep brown colour with a ruby red tinge, with a lovely creamy white head that sticks around, definitely looks the part, looks great. A very attractive beer! Didn’t notice much lacing, some carbonation. There was quite a strong metallic smell, very strong, with very sour cherry notes, malts, and overall very sweet, can definitely smell the alcohol. Had a pretty strong taste throughout, from start to the end, not much kick in the aftertaste, but having said that it was still very drinkable for me. Sweet tasting, with a lot of sugar, and of malts, cherry, caramel, and plum fruits, Overall I liked this drink, found it very smooth and easy to drink, nicely balanced, and will definitely look out for it again in the future.
