Caramel, some dark fruits and molasses in nose. Pours dark brown with beige head. Taste is medium sweet with caramel, raisins, chocolate and some spices. Finish is low bitter with very pleasant almond note in the aftertaste. Overall good Dubbel, I’ve never tried a beer with such a distinct almond note, interesting.

330 ml bottle. Pours brown with a large off-white head. Aroma of lightly roasted malt and grain as well as earthy and yeasty notes. Watery body with quiet lively carbonation. Taste is a little sweet and acidic with roasted malts (caramel) and subtle notes of mead with a nutty and little alcoholic aftertaste.

AtronSeige (1148) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - MAY 20, 2016
Aroma: Medium-light toasted bread with light syrup that quickly disappears. Medium spiciness, coriander, Light fruity, banana. No hops. Appearance: Slightly hazy, copper body. Large, frothy, rocky head, fair retention. Lacing. Flavour: Medium coriander, Light toasted bread with syrup. Medium-light bitterness. Very dry finish with lingering coriander. Mouthfeel: Light warming. Medium-high carbonation, Light body. Light oily tongue coating. Medium-light astringency. Overall: Missing the maltiness that is expected of the style. The coriander is front and center, and it refuses to move, overpowering everything else, even hanging around afterwards to annoy me. 330 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre! 26B. Belgian Dubbel

Bijl (91) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2016
Kastanjekleurig donkerere dubbel met een beetje schuim. De kraag is crèmekleurig. Aromas: Donker fruit, karamel, iets metalig. Geen hops in de neus. Smaak: Een prettig zuurtje, karamel geroosterde mouten, kruidig (wat in combinatie met aardig wat koolzuur een prikkeling aan de zijkant van de tong geeft), donkere fruitsoorten en een aardige nabitter. Koolzuur is flink actief in de mond, redelijk volle body. Scherp / bitter in de afdronk. Heerlijk!

YigSvartka (273) - Manitoba, CANADA - APR 25, 2016
Opaque ruby brown hue with a mid sized beige head. Robust aroma consisting of caramel, brown sugar, licorice, dried plum and berries. Full bodied and extremely malt forward. Flavour profile remains true to the aroma. Rich, decadent, and delicious.
