Big off white head with small bubbels. Very creamy mouthfeel, dark brownish colour, malty, slightly sweet flavours. Overall a very good brew!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz from mixed Bernardus 6p. Pours a mud like brown with a fizzy white head that quickly dissipates. Smells of slightly sour figs with alcohol showing. Body is actually quite light and heavy carbonated. Light easy drinking, taste of light fruits and the alcohol helps accentuate the tastes. Classic style, not my preference but good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice abbey dubbel. Medium body with usual fig and candied sugar flavor. Becomes richer and the malt flavor comes out more if you let it warm. Worth a try. On tap at VI. Belgian beer fest Budapest.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle with expiry date 16.09.18, bought in January. Frothy, quickly disappearing head, dark brown colour. Aroma is complex, with raisin, dark bread, brown sugar, and even a bit of hops in the finish. Alcohol noticeable, but does not disturb much. Smooth, very drinkable. Very good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle from Špunka in Tallinn (€ 2.92). Murky reddish brown. Head light beige, retains nicely, leaving little lacing. The usual caramel, dark fruits, pear, some inspecific spiciness, brown sugar... Fizzy carbonation, above average body... Metallic, grainy and dry on the palate. I’d definitely prefer Westmalle if in the mood of a Dubbel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle at home. A medium strong Belgian dubbel, high in carbon, brown sugar sweetness, some vanilla too. Full of character, with some earthy flavours and forest fruits. Not as classic and overwhelming as the quadrupple, but something to have on the beer map, for sure.
