3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l) A gushing bottle which may be due to the fact that the I tried to cool the bottle on the window sill of my hotel room and it wasn’t a really cold spot. The beer poured dark brown and almost clear. Its head was medium sized and white with brown shading. Aroma was sweet and malty. Palate was full bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, sweetness, mildly raisin, a little bit of fruitiness, hint of aniseed and low bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet. A too sweet and quite boring dubbel.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam)
6 sticky biscuity chocolate fudge brownie aroma.
4 Dark brown, brief head.
6 Rich and full biscuity and cakey taste.
4 Fullsome sweet palate, maybe a little stodgy, pleasant carbonation. Finish is again full and cakey, but again stodgy. There were also some hints of a bitter bite when it was cooler, but I’m not getting them now.
13 I prefer their more hefty beers, but this is a competent dubbel.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beer looks good, nice brown foamy head and dark color with some red highlights. Smells good too, some banana, chocolate and lovely roasted coffee beans. Tastes really light. Raisins, some cherry and some malts. Nothing special, but quite tasty nonetheless. Recommendation if you’re looking for a dark beer during a hot day in the summer.
