tfredvik (1302) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2015
Very deep copper body with a dense, creamy, very long-lived, light-tan head that laces the glass well before ending as a thin layer. Malty, fruity and strong aroma of dark dried fruits, sweet caramel, Belgian yeast and hints of vanilla. Strong flavour of dark dried fruits, caramel, Belgian yeast, sugar and alcohol. in the back I get vanilla and overripe banana. Moderate to light sweet taste with a long-lasting moderate to light bitter finish. It’s got a quite hight carbonation level, yet it feels smooth on the palate. A brilliant beer!
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 3.5 years before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]

Aroma of dates/ figs, raisins, malt and candies sugar. Very nice and complex. Taste is the same, but almost a dry finish, certainly not sweet. Nice amount of body. All around solid, very drinkable Belgian that doesn't taste strong at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12.7.2014. Hazy brown beer. Aroma has malts, nuts, caramel. Taste is spicy, malts, yeast, some sweetness. Not the best of the style but straightforward.

Somehow I was expecting a sweet, strong porter type brown beer from this. Not the case. Dumped it into a Stella glass and got a brownish orange brew with an enormous head which dissipated. There’s a little sweetness in it, a little fruitiness and some burned caramel and dark bread. Not one of my faves, but as with most in this style, it hides the strong ABV well. Got better as it warmed up.

I do dig this delicious Dubbel, but I bet I won’t lose sleep over it. Which is normal to do with some brews. I guess? Ye olde monk juice is a leathery raisin brown, cloudy with a chance of thin, off white fizz adornment. Notes of brown sugar, whole wheat bread, cinnamon, raisins, toffee, red wine and light cellar dank are the whiff du jour. Flavours blend well in this boozy behemoth but booze does in fact beckon the sensory organ responsible for taste into action. Fizzy feel is in fine fettle as bumptious bubbles barrage my tongue into sweet submission. A beyond decent dunk this Dubbel, I do believe it is worthy of desire.

Off white head that laces the glass. Caramel and roasted malt aroma. Taste...well its St. Bernardus so you know it’s good.

330 mL bottle. Deep amber brown pour, tall semi-creamy tan head. Aroma is malty, some roast, but also fair bit of fruit. Sweet, caramel. Taste is malty goodness through out, yeasty and fruity.
