butelka, warka do 10/2016. na szybko: mocno przyprawowy (w tym kolendrowy) i mocno slodowy ten dubbel. sa tez pozostale nutki, sporo owocow ciemnych, chleba, karmelu... w ustach kwaskowaty i slodkawy w smaku, dosc pelny, srednio wysycony, z lekka goryczka, slodkimi, przyprawowymi posmakami. dobry. ale niestety zbyt kolendrowy dla mnie.
edit: po ogrzaniu sie - kolendra staje sie dominujaca... wiec jeszcze w dol troche ocena, brrr. na zimno bylo 3.6

Icedwarf (1227) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAR 6, 2016
Donkerrood tot zwart bier met veel stevig schuim. Smaak is fruitig, licht zoet met iets van framboos en anijs. Aparte fruitige maar goede smaak, helaas iets te licht.

ziobarba2000 (43) - Roma, ITALY - FEB 28, 2016
Bottiglia da 0.33. Schiuma abbondante e corposa. Carbonatura appena abbondante. Colore bruno intenso. Aroma deciso con sentori di liquirizia. Gusto spigoloso con sfumature di castagna e sottobosco. Finale lungo ma non incisivo. Consiglio 6/10

Biroholik (821) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - FEB 27, 2016
Kolor: Ciemny brąz. Mętny.
Piana: Początkowo super się pieni. Potem opada . Do samego końca pozostaje z fajnym kożuszkiem. Niezłe zdobienia szkła.
Zapach: Zbożowy. Następnie przechodzi w owocowy.
Smak: Bardzo dobre piwo. Smak jest zróżnicowany. Ciemne słody, trochę karmelu. Bardzo fajne ziołowo-pieprzowe akcenty. Wyczuwalne są również ciemne owoce: figi, granaty, ciemna winogrona. Piwo przyjemnie rozgrzewa. Ku mojemu zaskoczeniu pojawia się interesująca goryczka. Finisz wyraźnie ziołowy. Fantastyczny posmak szczypty chilli, lub pieprzu przyjemnie szczypie w język.
Wysycenie: Dość wysokie.
Podsumowanie:
Świetny Belg! Akcenty ziołowe dodają mu uroku. Pikantny finisz nadaje mu charakteru. Bardzo pijalne. Rozgrzewa, cieszy i pobudza do działania ;-)

Draught at Delirium Cafe. Toffee, cake, dried fruit, yeast, quite thick and oily, fairly sweet finish. Decent and flavorful dubbel, maybe a tad too heavy though.

heavy (2750) - Split, CROATIA - DEC 18, 2015
Feb ’15. A 0.33 l bottle, from Svijet Piva store, Zagreb. Thanks Zlatko! It poured hazy brown body with medium sized head. Again, unusually hoppy for the Belgian stuff, but it’s an inevitable trend. Lightly sour and sweet flavor, a typical dubbel. Heavy red wine, dried fruits, caramel and burnt sugar. Medium body, for the style quite full, although 8% ABV was evident. Simple sweet&sour finish, again more or less typical. Seems like rb people really like dubbels, this one was least enjoying of the three for me, although without any flaws.

lello4ever (630) - ITALY - DEC 6, 2015
Birra marrone scuro con schiuma beige di poca persistenza. Al naso malto, caramello, dark fruits. La bevuta č un po’ incerta tra il dolce e qualche sentire acidulo. Carbonazione buona alcol in evidenza. Non cosě buona come speravo.

Trolleo (1276) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 25, 2015
Cloudy brown color, medium sized tan head. Aroma is mostly bubblegum and brown sugar. Taste is similar, with dark fruits and resins as a bonus. Pretty sweet and sugary. Medium body, over-carbonated. Sweet plum and grapes finish. Nice enough. //Craft Room

blackisle (1976) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Very dark amber brown, small frothy beige head, recedes quickly, light lacing; aroma is malty, caramel, red fruit, sour cherry, tart; taste is medium sweet and light sour, fruity, light caramel; medium body, oily to sticky texture, flat carbonation, aftertaste is sweet and sour, fruity, spicy notes; as an Sour Brown okay (but not like the real thing), certainly not a Dubbel.
