bartlebier (2069) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - MAY 12, 2014
Draught at source under the mill, 01V2014. No nose. Traditional silky fruit sirup on brown bread basket: plum, caramels, liquorice. Redeeming dry roast. Mid-heavy mouthfeel. Fine enough, just one to ground its sipper in rural traditions and fairgrounds where fast and cheap unctuosity still present a sugary treat, not to uplift him out of the deep pockets he has travelled to.

VDuquerroux (424) - Airvault, FRANCE - APR 27, 2014
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A clear mahogany brown beer with a medium white head. Poor persistence. Just a few bubbles there. Fruity aroma (red berries, raisins), caramel, roasty malt, metallic smell (?). Light to medium bittersweet taste (sugar feeling). Medium to full body. Medium texture. Average carbonation but OK. Long sweet finish. Overall, a nice sweet warming dubbel. Nothing exceptional.

erickok (3887) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAR 20, 2014
Brown bodied with a tan head. Looks nice. Strangely acidic malts, sugary industrial cookies, Sweet yet okay tasting Belgian brown malty based body withlittle hop character but enough bitterness. Classic, but quite well executed. A bit too clean in character perhaps, with its short ending. It’s a nice Belgian Dark Ale. (33cl bottle from Cave Gambrinus SPdC)

EddyBeer1 (949) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 9, 2014
Brune tirant vers l’ambré, effervescence moyenne (pétillant trop au palais), col beige clair moyen. Assez maltée, caramel léger, un rien métallique, un peu trop sucrée, mini amertume sur la fin.

domienS (133) - Oostakker, BELGIUM - JAN 14, 2014
Pours a black beer with a fine beige head. Smells sweet, caramel and liquorish. Tastes bitter, spicy and liquorish. Really doesn’t leave a nice palate imo. A ok beer and nothing more.

kermis (5871) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear brown with a medium tan head. Aroma of caramel, light herbs, slightly metallic and a little dark fruit. Flavor is over moderate sweet and moderate bitter. Some fudge, toffee coming out in the palate. Medium bodied with light carbonation.

77ships (4406) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 13, 2013
33 cl. bottle sampled thx! to Kraddel.BBF 01/03/2014. Pours a ruby dark brown with some tanned bubbles. Nose is liquorish, sweet herbs, caramel, light bread, something metallic-like. Taste is bitter herbs mixed with coca-cola, faint but not bothersome iron, bark, sweet dark bread, touch caramel & cheap chocolate candy. It is a bit like some odd coca-cola with light spices. Med. to lighter body. Not stellar but I expected much worse, this is an okay & mildly enjoyable drink.
