A brown beer with a sweet aroma that has a full flavour and a lightly roasted aftertaste.

An authentic abbey ale
The age-old tradition of the White Canons of Tongerlo lives on in this officially recognised Belgian abbey ale.

Re-fermented in the bottle
Re-fermentation in the bottle gives the beer a more intense taste and aroma as well as a longer shelf life.

Tasted as Tongerlo Dubbel Bruin years ago so this rating is based on old tasting notes. Authentic abbey beer with chestnut colour and medium thick, light beige head. Sweet main character: caramelly malt sweetness, candi sugar, pear, raisins, spicy hints; body is on the thin side, and there is something unmistakably metallic to it which bothers me, as well as the lack of hop bitterness to balance out the sweetness. Does not work for me but since this brand was restyled in 2009, I will soon re-rate this, like its Blond and Tripel brethren.

Diabobale (241) - ITALY - NOV 10, 2014
Una dubbel molto beverina. Non troppo alcolica e ben strutturata. Non troppo luppolata, come nello stile, leggermente acidula

Cerveza de color caoba oscuro. Sabor y olor dulce, con notas a azucar moreno, miel de caña. Cuerpo medio y con gas medio. Mejor no beber demasiado fria. Una cerveza de calidad media.

A sweet aroma, which reminds me of ripe banana’s and dry cookies. also in the taste I get some accents of banana and in the aftertaste a little bit of pure chocolate.

It has a beautiful dark ruby color witness good head retention, but it doesn’t have any aroma or flavor. I don’t know what happened, it is like water with a very subtle bitter aftertaste.

Une brune belge à la robe rubis. Très bon nez. Un palais plus classique mais sympathique tout de même.
