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.

Nugget (30) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 22, 2006
Pours a murky dark orange with l’il floaties. Smells a little tart and yeasty (a la Van den Vern). Kind of bready. Tastes slightly sweet but there’s not much else to it. A very unexciting beer.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 28, 2006
Bottle. Big tanned head with nice laces. Unclear reddish-brown color. Malty nose. Also slight fruity with notes of yeast. Soft flavors of malts, caramel and dark fruits. Watery palate. Overall a bit thin, and it lacks the required gravity for a dubbel. I miss that special ‘t IJ quality signature on this one…

omhper (21265) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2006
[Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm] Muddy dark amber, rich head. Evidently yeasty, orangey nose. Mdedium sweet with lively mouthfeel. Soap, yeast and orange dominates, the caramelly malt are barely perceptible underneath th efunky yeast character. A wild and interesting brew!

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2006
BB 08/2005. Another 2 buck special. Dark brown purplish tinted beer with a creamy tan head. Sweet fruity aroma, plums and dark cherries, sweet chewy toasted malts, yeast shows subdued clove and some sweet apple and grapey vineousness as well. Flavour is sweet and plummy but also lighted textured than many other dubbels. This makes it creamy and sweet, but also somewhat refreshing. Creamy texture, light mint herbal character. Some clove and light apple through the finish along with a lingering breadiness. Nice beer.

snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - SEP 15, 2006
Pours a dark reddish brown. Nice sized white head, great lacing. Wonderful sweet, yeasty aroma. Flavor doesn’t live up to the appearance or nose, offputting sour notes. Mouthfeel a little thin.

beastiefan2k (2830) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - JUL 29, 2006
33cl bottle, best before 08/2005. Just drank it. Pours a beautiful brown/ruby red color and some lacing. Aroma is best part, roasty with plenty of belgian candi sweetness and a bit of sourness. Beer may be a bit past its time, definite sour aspect but totally acceptable. Taste is a bit thin though - not usual dubbel - lactosy roast with some sweetness.
