3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
An alright abbey dubbel. Nothing too outspoken, perhaps it has potential to appeal to a wide range of people.

330ml bottle from Sliterij Van Bergen, Eindhoven, NL!
The beer in glass is almost black with good red cast and huge cream head. The smell is sweet malty, with hints of liquorice, overall very neutral. Starts roasted malty, fairly sweet, hints of liquorice. The further course is a little berry-sourish!

Reddish brown, dense off white head. Aroma has caramel, candy, sweetish. Taste is a bit bitter, smooth, a bit sweet, fizzling in mouth, reasonable finish. After a few sips, it appears to be less sweet than at the beginning.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Achelse Kluis. Different label, ABV is 7.1%. Dark reddish brown with a huge tan head. Fruity and yeasty nose, slight hints of sour berries, but also chocolate. Good dry chocolate flavours, balanced by berries. Good carbonation. I think this is a very good dubbel.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very dark brown-orange. Big head. Aromaís of dark fruit (cherish, strawberry), very sweet, raisins, chocolate. Sweet red-fruit taste, brown sugar, honey. A bit to watery. A bit to simple to talk of a good beer, but for sure, itís not bad.
