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.

Bottle @ ABC Upstairs. Pours a dark amber with tan head. Aroma is sweet with fruit floral notes. Flavor is fairly bitter and sour for a dubble. Different, but I like it.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 30, 2007
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.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2007
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.

Skinnyviking (8630) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2007
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.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - AUG 13, 2007
Bottle. Pours a a nice amber-brownish colour with a big though short lasting head. Good champagne mouthfeel. The aroma is very malty with caramel and spices. The flavour ha s good toasty maltiness with caramel, spices, dark fruits and yeast. Toasty sweetish finish.

bb (8314) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 19, 2007
Bottle. Rich amber beer with a big dark cream colored head. Orange, spice, sweet malt aroma. Spicy, orange, yeasty, malt flavor. Yeast, orange, and spice linger. Medium body. Fairly dry, bready finish. This is a beer that’s just calling out for some Brett.

guzzler67 (1650) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 17, 2007
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.
