An authentic abbey ale

Bottle, 33cL. Home. A shining dark brown opaque beer with a big creamy off-white head ; good retention. Roast, toast, nut, fig, caramel, prune, light licorice. Medium sweet, light to medium dry bitter refreshing. Medium body, average texture, good carbonation, bittersweet toasty spicy finish. Overall, a good dubbel beer with a nice roasty nutty aroma ; well-balanced.

Smag af chokolade anes sammen med den gode smag af belgisk gær. Måske lidt mere humle ville hjælpe på det.

Une "brune"... Plutôt insipide mais pas mauvaise. Légèrement caramelisée. Amertume plaisante et équilibrée.On a vu mieux.

Bottled, 0.33 cl. Color of dark misty brown, long staying head, almost visible fizz. Smells of dark chocolate, raisins, roasted. Taste is light and medium sweet, palate feels on the sides of the mouth, on the roof of the mouth, too.

Pas monstrueux. Pas mauvais, équilobré, bon mais rien de notable ni révolutionnaire.

Espuma en tonos marrones que se mantiene como una fina corona, color marrón oscuro casi negro, rico aroma dulce en nariz, sabores tostados y dulces con un regusto rico

Pours dark brown with a big beige head that laces well. Aroma is really nice, malty and yeasty with notes of apples, peaches, molasses and spices like nutmeg. Taste is sweet-ish, mild intensity, with some blurred Christmas spices. Good but the Aroma promised more than what the Taste delivers. Maybe it’s not round enough or you feel too much water in it. Medium body, a little bit overcarbonated maybe, alcohol has a tiny presence here and there. Some nutty aftertaste. Decent Dubbel, far from my favorite though.
