Troebelbruin. Aroma van donkergebrande mout, chocolademelk. Smaakindrukken: koffie, hout, chocolade maar niet overweldigend. Smaakt ook wat waterig.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy dark brown color with a very nice and fluffy white head. Aroma is roasted malt with notes of caramel, chocolate, and hints of berry fruits. Flavor following the complex aroma but quite spicy. Medium body with a nice dry sweet finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Home roasted malts, that’s pretty cool. Looks good too, with deep brown body and lasting tan head. Strangely the aroma is more toffee than coffee for me, perhaps because of the choice of Belgian fruity fig like yeast. Taste is fairly smooth with brown sugar and light nutty. Well, just another dubbel in the end, then. (33cl bottle from Bierparadijs)

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma van aardbei, rozijnen, beetje hout, toast en zoetigheid, desondanks niet overheersend of heftig. Smaak is wat bitterder dan bovenstaande omschrijvingen, ook kersen. Veel omschrijvingen, maar het is toch net niet karaktervol genoeg, wat slap en zelfs waterigheid ertussen. Bruinige kraag. Weinig nasmaak, beetje bitter.
