Voici une double qui nous apporte de belles surprises … Son niveau de 6,5 % abv ne pouvait laisser présager cela, mais elle y est arrivée. Nous allons voir comment. Couleur noir intense. Quelques matières en suspension au versage, mais qui ne peuvent nuire ni à la présentation ni à la dégustation. Bulles assez faibles, et mousse café crème qui vient juste napper sans faire d’autres efforts, mais ceci va curieusement rapprocher cette bière d’une brune plus forte... Arômes de fruits mûrs, groseille noire, avec une pointe de cassis et de pruneau. Aussi un peu de café moka. 1ère bouche structurée, avec une très belle prise sur du moka, des fruits mûrs, du cake aux pommes. Arrière-bouche pleine et bien équilibrée, avec du caractère. 2ème bouche au très beau fondu bois/fruits/café, avec une pointe de chicorée. 3ème bouche avec à la fois de la douceur et un aspect assez fort. Arrière-bouche bien maltée, avec une sorte de tourbe. Très bien. La longueur nous donne du malt chocolat et caramel, avec de très belles nuances. La levure est un peu charbonnée, adaptée au genre. L’alcool est faible, mais il fait un bon travail de double. Très bien. La finale apporte quelques notes de porto et de confit d’oie, avec un peu de bois de fût. Conclusion : une double magnifique, qui peut quasi être un modèle du genre. Certes pas forte, mais ce n’est ce qu’on lui demande, mais avec un joli caractère et des saveurs multiples, sans la moindre fausse note...

When read stuff on the forum about the closing of the Scheldebrouwerij I decided to get some of their beers when it is still possible. I was not disappointed. This beer rocks. Smell is quite good, spicy. A bit rummy indeed. Very massive sweet, spicy taste, still well balanced. Palate is malty, bitter. This is good, oh yeah!

I did not know what to expect from this, but what a pleasant surprise! Cloudy brown color, with beautiful long-lasting creamy head. Spicy, fruity and maybe a bit hoppy aroma. Bit malts add to the taste. Palate becomes a bit acidic at the end of the glass. But this Dulle Griet is certainly very good!

bittle at the Mug in Middelburg. Something like the Merck Toch Hoe Sterck, but with a more caramel taste and a slightly browner colour.

Bottle. Blackish brown beer with a creamy and thickish off white head. The aroma is malty and rich and the flavour is warming, malty, rich and mildy sweet. Overall a nice malty and roasted beer.

In a 330ml bottle from the Fat Cat in Norwich. Already had a few pints, and maybe a couple of belgian beers. So I was definately not sober, though I felt bowled over by this beer at the time and reviewed it, despite being with friends (something I try not to normally do, as it can slow the evening down somewhat). They all agreed that yeas it was an awesome beer. Pitch Black with smooth white head. Smell red fruits and plums with some alcohol wading in. Taste much more with loads of fruit, loads of rich malt and a touch of bitter hops. Some carbonation. Awesome.

Excellent dubbel with a grand taste of caramell and malt. The Scheldebrouwerij obviously knows what it’s doing.
