Beerenberger (1601) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JAN 24, 2013
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.

drjoeng (935) - SINGAPORE - AUG 3, 2016
6.5%ABV. Abbey Dubbel. Poured out brown. 28ºSRM. Nose is sweet dark malt with chin chow, bandaids, sweet red beans or azuki, especially in a red bean paste like a freshly steamed tau sar pau. Some red dates, Mouthfeel is watery. Palate has roasted sweet malty flavors with dates, dark wheat toast, honey, sweet grass jelly or chin chow, red date tea. Very slight fruity, not quite sour in the middle to give it a bit more body. Finish is light and clean and slightly bitter. There are some nice bread, toast and Graham cracker flavors in the finish. Overall sweet and malty ride, thin body.

0,33 bottle from/with pekka. - Brown sugar, breadcrust, slight funk. The flavor has mostly caramel and slight milk chocolate. Kinda reminds me of Westmalle dubbel, and that’s a good beer!
