Botella. Color marron oscuro, espuma poco persistente, carbonatacion baja. Aroma a caramelo y dulce de leche, tambien a azucar quemado y algo licoroso. En boca es dulce, y alcoholica pero bien equilibrada acabando con un amargor notable.

Aroma of mature fruit, caramel, floral esters, with some chocolate toasted hints. The attenuation is high, as its style requires, so that the finish is quite bitter and pleasantly dry. A small quantity of roasted malts gives some astringency. Rocky foam, proper high carbonation. A fine dubbel.

hrabren (87) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 13, 2015
Dark brown with week tan head, syrup aroma, sugars, chocolate biscuit, something dry, strange, taste is not good. Thick beer. Not bad, but there is something wrong.

TtV (226) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 29, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Dark brown with an off white head that is not too sturdy. Fades quickly. The aroma is sweet at first, but the taste is surprisingly sour. It makes me think of kriek. A bit mediocre.

Ulysse (297) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 26, 2014
A brown beer with nothing much to say about. A little bit acid. Not much of a character.
