After the ‘Zatte’, this is the oldest beer from Brouwerij ‘t IJ. Natte is classed as a ‘dubbel’, a Belgian category of smooth, dark beers. Because we partly use dark malt, Natte has a reddish-brown colour and a smooth, roasted flavour with earthy tones of brown sugar, nuts and plums. Completed with slightly bitter hops, this is a nicely balanced beer and one of the brewery’s classics.

Grzesiek79 (3860) - Radom, POLAND - JAN 15, 2016
Piwo Biologiczne o ladnej kremowej i stabilnej piance. Ciemno brazowe kasztanowe w smaku trocje trufli i melasa. Slodkawe i sliwkowe piwo. Ogolnie dobre metnosc spora. Zapach przyjemny trochę jakby zwietrzałej kawy i orzechow laskowych. Ogolnie podsumowując dobry Dubbel

Licht wazig (ongefilterd...) , lichtbruin bier met rode schijn en ruime cremekleurige schuimkraag. Aroma’s van karamel, bruine suiker en toffee. Smaak is licht zurig en bitterig. Mondgevoel is gemiddeld met gemiddeld koolzuur en bitterige afdronk met cara eind.

Hamirubi (541) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - DEC 28, 2015
Sample from a 33cl bottle (26 IX 2015), shared with De Meetjeslandse Bierproevers. A not that strong dubbel with red black appearance. Quite slick. The malt flavours are heavy, with caramel, coffee, chocolate, nuts. Not exactly what I expected, so very surprising and promising. Some liquorice hints at a heavy sugarness. Yet the brew is only medium sweet, making this an excellent abbey ale. With a creamy texture and medium palate, this is one of ’t IJ finests.

corkyrory66 (1266) - BELGIUM - DEC 21, 2015
Amsterdamse dubbel, non filtrée, non pasteurisée, biologique (normes NL-bio-01). Niveau abv de 6,5 %. Mon exemplaire était à 4 mois avant sa date. Couleur brun roux caramel, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines en colonnes droites, le long des parois. Mousse beige moyen soyeuse, stable à 2 mm. Arômes de caramel, cassonade, toffee. 1ère bouche très souple, à l’entrée un peu curieuse, malt et coquille d’œuf !! Arrière-bouche moyennement longue, sur du malt cara. 2ème sur malt cara et cosse de petits pois !! Arrière-bouche valable. 3ème avec du foin coupé, des herbes sèches … Arrière-bouche moins valable que les autres. Longueur avec fanes de pommes de terre, amandes pilées, très peu d’harmonie. Jambes fines, assez lisses. Levure simple, très petite ligne. Alcool correct, mais il n’aide en rien aux saveurs. Finale sans intérêt. CONCLUSION : double aux 1ères bouches très curieuses, mais aux arrière-bouches valables, puis la longueur s’enfonce dans les ténèbres !!! Ne vous affolez pas, il y a tellement à découvrir chez ’t IJ …. et par exemple ne confondez pas Natte et Zatte ...

Lore (1989) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 18, 2015
opalescent mahogany colour, medium sized yellowish head; aroma of sour cherry, caramel, earthy notes and some apple; taste of malty sweetness with roasted bittery notes, sour cherry and maybe some apple and dark chocolate notes; not a typical dubbel (neither its colour, nor its aroma/taste really suits the category), but still enjoyable

33cl bottle on 27-Oct-2015 in Amsterdam. Amber colour with a thin sized head. Medium sized tan coloured head. Aroma and flavour of malt, caramel and hops. Nice and hoppy. Slightly sweet. More like a red ale than a dubbel.

Dutch delight; subtle tones of caramel and a hint of citrus. Awesome dubbel from our capital
