Straling (295) - Hoensbroek, - NOV 3, 2012
On tap. Pours a dark brown/reddish colour with quick fading foam and little carbonation. Was rather on the wrong end of booze when tasting this, however must say it was very sweet, close to overly sweet. Hints of fruits and some yeast.

Draft. Brown body with a frothy, brown head. Aroma of caramel, molasses, nuts, roasted malts. The flavor is moderately to heavily sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Overly sweet and a bit thin.

jmgreenuk (4109) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle at the Brouwcafe, Schevenigen. Poured a clear dark brown with a frothy light tan head. The aroma is yeast, roasted malt, burnt toffee, caramel. The flavour is medium bitter with a smooth yeast, malt bitter palate and a short bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a bubbly mouthfeel. Not my favourite Dubbel but far from being my least favourite.

Lore (1005) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 1, 2014
beautiful appearance of mahogany colour with ruby notes and half inch creamy beige head; aroma of green apple, dried plum and figs, candy sugar, and some bread;taste of dried fruits, roasted sugar and some hoppy bitterness; would be a perfect dubbel if the taste was at least similarly complex as the aroma

Dark brown, dense head. Light aroma, some notes of dried plum. Sweet taste with plum, hops in the finish. Refreshing carbonation and full body. Well-balanced.
