3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ home. Very nice clear deep dark red color with a medium sized beige to light brown head that lasts for a decent while and leaves fair lacing. Don’t get a lot of aroma. Taste has malts, caramel, slightly chocolate, lightly some grains and decently sweet-bitter. Quite like it, nice abbey dubbel. Medium body and carbonation. Well done.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a murky brown beer with a nice, fluffy brownish head on top. Aroma is Belgian yeast, some breadiness and cookies, alongside some sligth notes of licorice and molasses. Flavour is quite sweet, light alcoholic, very malty and spicy. Short finish, light, oily mouthfeel. Drinks fairly easy, not much complexity to it. Decent dubbel..

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy brown with a high, large-grained, beige head. Nose is fruity with citrus and black tea notes. Very rich, dark, and somewhat sweet on the tongue; elements of Fig Newton and chicory. Finishes long and savory. A decent example of the type, but nothing outstanding.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep dark red colored with little light brown head. Raisinny and licoricy aroma with mild alcohol, good one. Flavor is richer with licorice, roastiness and some nice vinous touch, berries also present. This fine vinous note lasts in warming aftertaste, I like this dubbel.
