COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Sigmund (5796) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 6, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2007 330 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal pub, Stavanger. The beer is quite clear reddish brown when poured, a slight haziness may occur if the sediment is disturbed in the end, decent head. LOVELY aroma with intense fruity and vinous notes, spices are very much present too. The flavour is also fruity and spicy but not very powerful, hints of caramel. Moderate sweetness, moderate bitterness. A slightly salty finish. Light bodied, the ABV is well hidden. Easy drinking. The aftertaste is not remarkable.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - FEB 16, 2007
Brilliant amber/brown. Large, dense, chunky, tan cap leaves a coat of lace. Nose of sweet malt, musty doughy yeast, fresh vegetation (not quite herbal), and light perfume. Flavor adds some caramel cookie malt, subtle funk to the yeast, dry and yeasty finish, and aftertaste of toasted cookies and sweet herbs. Medium body, soft and foamy, too much carbonation. Nice session dubbel with a t IJ twist.

HenrikSoegaard (11675) - Randers, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2007
Bottle. Creamy white excellent fully lasting head. Cloudy amber colour. Light malty/hoppy/yeasty aroma. Ok flavor, but overwhealming mangonotes like other ’t IJ beers. Average finish. Oily palate but way too fizzy.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 17, 2007
Pours dark reddish brown with a thin, mostly receding wispy light brown head. Aroma of cherries, sticky alefruits, raisins, toffee. Taste is sweet toffee malt, plum, raisins, and oak. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with slight stickiness and lush carbonation. Very interesting, dubbel-ish beer.

bikesandbeers (547) - san diego, California, USA - JAN 17, 2007
33cl bottle from AMS to SFO via LHR. upon cracking the bottle, I could tell it was an ’IJ beer with its fruity aroma with hints of spices. Plum is dominate with some rasin and cinmon. Flavor is moderately sweet with not much else too it. very carbonated. Not quite a dubbel, and a bit bland to be great but still a very solid beer.

Marsiblursi (3063) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2007
(Bottle) Pours deep redish to nut brown. Nuts and caramel in aroma with Some funky chocolate and notes of liquorice root. Some fruits, dried apricots and raisins. Earty undertones and a light hoppyness. Light roasted, caramel flavour with some toffee, brown sugar and raisins. Lively carbonation. Sourish, light bitter finish. Medium body.

KnutAlbert (6386) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 5, 2007
33 cl, bought in Amsterdam. Not an optimal bottle, signs of bacteria infection. Complex beer with sweet fruit - banana and peach. Yeasty finish.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2006
330 ml bottle. Crystal clear copper colour. Throws a tall fluffy off-white beige head. Acidic malty aroma. Brett. Peach, banana and apricots. Nutty maltiness. Distinct metallic hop flavour. Rich sourness and fruity maltiness. Clearly infected by bacteria. Doubt that it is intended as it is labelled a dubbel. Interesting, but not as intended.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2007 Largish offwhite head. Hazy opaque light brown body with carbonation. Light wooden bananaish aroma with vague rubbery notes. Deep wooden, bananaish, roasty malty taste with spicy notes. Peppery. Dry, spicy aftertaste. Very nice. (0.33l bottle.)
