paulvanpelt (408) - Reusel, - JAN 6, 2013
Hazelnootbruin, zeer troebel bier met licht getinte schuimkraag. Geen duidelijk aroma: wat noten, malt, caramel, stroop? Opvallend aan de smaak is dat het iets licht zurigs heeft, verder het bekende zoetbittere van een dubbel. Prettig dik palet, zonder een melig mondgevoel. Prima dubbel.

MelvinKalksma (196) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - SEP 24, 2015
Aroma: Caramel, malty sweet, yeasty spice. Appearance: Amber/brown beer with a decent cream coloured head. Has floating yeast in it. Taste/Palate: Thick raising flavour, wood, spices, caramel, dry nuts at the end. Amazingly smooth palate, though the taste could have been more special.

Zlotta (453) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2015
0.33 l bottle from Slijterij D’Amstelhoek, best before 3/3/2017. Clear, reddish amber with a huge, foamy, stable, tan head. Sweetish-malty aroma of toffee, nuts and cane sugar with hints of raisins. Sweetish-malty taste of honey, toffee, nuts and cane sugar, followed by a short, slightly bitter finish. Medium to full body, very effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Very pleasant beer but a bit over-carbonated and quite one-dimensional regarding the taste. At least the rather hoppy finish balances the sweetness.

Kleurplaatje (104) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2015
Pours dark, cloudy brown with a stable, lasting off-white head. Beautiful lacing. Aroma of toffee, caramel, nuts, dark fruits, yeast and spices. Autumn-like with a vinous undertone. Well-brewed aroma. Taste is smoothly sweet with a soft notes of caramel, dark fruits, yeast and spices. Soft, in this sense, that they remain a bit flat. Bitterish towards the end, slightly dryish in the aftertaste, but a nutty sweetness lingers long. Creamy texture, light bodied and a bit too carbonated. Well-crafted brew with a great aroma, yet a bit unbalanced and tastewise a bit too bland and lacking in complexity for a Bernardus. All in all, still a great little brother within the Bernardus family.

dinkle50 (1163) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2015
Reddish to brown pour with a single finger head. Lots of fruit esters and yeast on the aroma. Medium bodied. Taste has some banana as well as hints of grain. Lots of fruit. Really easy drinking for a dubbel.

leghorn99 (145) - Livorno, ITALY - SEP 2, 2015
Color marrone castagno; schiuma abbondante, cremosa e persistente. Aroma fruttato e speziato, deciso e ricco: ci senti il pepe, la cannella, le nocciole e il fruttato leggermente asprigno di frutta rossa, insieme alla banana e alla frutta bianca. Il corpo è snello, scattante, aiutato da una frizzantezza pronunciata: ci ritrovi tutto il naso, arricchito da un amarino granuloso di malto tostato e un sottile mix di liquirizia/caffè. Finisce ricca, vivace e curiosa, con un retrogusto piccante di spezie.
