3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 330 ml, poured into an oversized wine glass at home. ABV 6.5%
Brown in colour, more like a very deep red, with almost two fingers of light beige head with good retention and light lacing on the glass.
Aroma of lightly roasted malts, a bit of iron, faint chocolate that becomes stronger as it warms up and faint red stewed fruits. Not bad at all.
Taste is quite sweet, with some malts and lots of red grapes, giving it a very wine-like flavour.
Nice medium thick body, good carbonation. It gives a warming, boozy feeling although it’s just a 6.5% beer. Mild dryness on the palate.
Tasty and enjoyable beer afterit reached its recommended temperature, the "off" aromas disappeared and what was l left with was a great beer.

Nice dubbel but could have used a bit more booze. Nice heavy nutty and toasted malts and big dried candied fruits. Sweet and sultry taste with a ton of raisins and light caramel notes. Mild and sweet malty taste with a good Belgian yeast quality. Great beer overall!

Bottle. Pours a dark brown, medium clear beer with a small amount of tanned head. Aroma of red fruits, malts ams Belgian yeast. Some spices detected, molasses and slight licorice. Flavour is quite sweet and has a watery mouthfeel. Quote bland and uninteresting, yet nothing wrong with it.

Amber colored, dark beer with a lightbrown foamy head. A strange aroma of mocca or something like that. Nice, sweet syrup-like taste, with a touch of bitterness in the background. It has a somewhat bittersweet aftertaste.
Donker, amberkleurig bier met een lichtbruine kop. Apart aroma van mokka of iets dergelijks. Mooie, zoete stroopachtige smak met een bitterheid achter op de tong. De nasmaak is bitterzoet.
