330ml bottle into a goblet. Pours a slightly hazy dark brown due to the sediment that got into the glass with a half finger fluffy white head. Really good head retention and decent lacing. Aroma is a little bit weak but I really can pick out brown sugar and vanilla. There is also a slightly musty odor but it is more complimentary than it is distracting. The brown sugar is more muted in the flavor allowing the the banana/clove Belgian yeast character to shine through. More vanilla that is subdued but there is a noticeable lack of complexity compared to some other versions of the style. Mouthfeel is on the watery side with a little bit of stickyness left on the finish. Overall, I am not very impressed by this Dubbel. It really lacks complexity and depth of flavor along with a weak mouthfeel. I feel like this could be a whole lot better with a little bit of work.

Aroma is plum alcohol, huge head that dissipates quickly, OK lacing, taste is surprising - almost like a coffee stout with some metal.

hrabren (248) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 10, 2015
0.33 bottle from Pivoljub, Ljubljana, Slovenia. Hazy reddish brown, turns hazy orange on the light. Creamy off-white to beige head. Caramel and dried fruits, fruit jam, cake. Cherry sourness, red fruits, light sweetness, alcohol presence. Quite sour finish, soft carbonation. I’d love to have another.

birraiolo (246) - ITALY - AUG 6, 2015
Bottiglia da 33 cl. Color leggero ambrato con schiuma nocciola di grana media di media tenuta. I profumi dono fruttati di frutta a polpa gialla matura e nocciole. Al palato inizio fruttato che lascia spazio a sentoti di spezie e un finale amarognolo, corpo medio che fa sentire un pó troppo l’alcool.
