3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Very acidic nose, light cherry. Cloudy light brown with minimal head. Flavor is nothing like the nose. Only a touch of acidity, more sweetness, can‘t nail down the fruit. Palate is full bodied but very smooth.

[Sampled in 2005, present from den Blå Øl.]
Not as good as told. Should be better than Westmalle dubbel, Jens said, but I found it very highcarbonated and somewhat harsh and woody. But maybe it was a bad bottle.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a bubbly amber color with a thick, creamy light tan head. Smells of some sweet malts, mild candy sugar and some yeast. The taste is slightly sweet, some nice spice comes out in the flavor too. Definitely malty, but not syrupy at all. Pretty crisp and clean. A little candy sugar and dark fruits are detectable as well. Not incredibly interesting, but very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hich creamy and long lasting off-white head. Hazy dark orange body. Sweet and fruity barley malt aroma with some caramel as well. Astonishingly hoppy flavor of fruits with a good deal of carbonation and a dry and long bitter aftertaste. Alcohol percentage seems just right.

Cloudy, deep amber appearance with an average size beige head and nice lacing. Yeasty, sweet malt aroma with notes of molassas, toffee and ripe fruit. Moderately sweet, malty taste; dark fruit and a light nuttiness were evident. Medium-bodied, modestly carbonated mouthfeel. Lingering, slightly metallic finish.

Shared by Retro42. A sweet beer. Light yeast, and sweet Belgian malt and Belgian yeast. They nailed the style on this one, but I usually expect IJ to do something a little different. This is an ordinary dubbel of high quality.
