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.

33 cl bottle at home. Pours a clear dark brown with a thin head. Aroma is slightly sour fruit and yeast, with rich roasted malt. Taste: slightly sweet, tart and dry. Rich malt, stewed fruits and a lactic, almost balsamic finish. Ending tart and dry. I’m not sure that the lactic, tart flavours in this are intentional, reading the other reviews. I hope they are; it makes this better than a run-of-the-mill dubbel. Will try this again sometime. For now, I quite like this.

Vinx (87) - ITALY - JUL 5, 2015
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.

dmoncki (42) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JUN 24, 2015
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 amargor notable

hrabren (239) - 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 (248) - 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.

A brown beer with nothing much to say about. A little bit acid. Not much of a character.
