3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy nutbrown to reddish with medium beige head, that turns into decent stable layer.
Aroma.. intense bready, bonbon, bit hoppy and moderate malty. Yeasty.
Sweet with bit of sourness.
Decent brew, for me it was something interesting that I would like to repeat. Good price/performance

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours deep hazy brown-reddish with white creamy nice head, a bit line type lacy on glass. Aroma is sour-sweet, very sweet fruit, bong-bong like, some tones of ginger, vanilla, yeasty. Taste is sweet, very light sour, in late stages comes a bit bitter from hops. Finish is mild dry. Good body. Overall very nice beer after bitter example, a bit confusing about style. But liked it.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deepest ruby, almost black; off white bubbly uneven head; smells tannic and vinous, a little yeasty, enticing; well carbonated; a little spice next to sugary malt and plummy fruit; on the thin side; too sweet; average Belgian

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, gift from my mother (fascinating to see she knows exactly which beers i haven’t had before). Dark brown colored, lasting brown head. Malty nose, toffee, molasses, iron. Initially sweet flavor, some iron again, then finally some roasted malts shining through (a bit like Westmalle dubbel), perhaps far in the distance even some Flemish sour features. Somewhat bitter finish. A bit heavy for a dubbel. A nice, but non-spectacular Belgian dubbel.

Dunkelbraunes Abteibier mit viel feinporigem Schaum. Sehr malziges Aroma mit Anklängen von Karamell. Im Antrunk vollmundig und im Geschmack primär malzig mit leicht bitteren, nach Kafffee ausklingenden Abgang. Gelungen!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Huge gusher, directly after slightly opening the bottle. Got everything in the glass with all of the sediment as well. Cloudy brownish colour without any head. Sweet aroma, full of molasses and cookie spices. Some caramel detected. Flavour is sweet and it lacks complexity. Flat body, must be because of the gusher that all the carbo went flying. Ok beer, would like to try another bottle, see if it doesn’t do the gusher.
