1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
A great dissapointment. It looks good. The aroma is very strange. It smells wrong. It is not very pleasant. The flavour reminds me of dark German wheat beer. Very wheaty and yeasty. Thin bodied.

Not the most interesting dubbel. Quite yeaty which I find a little out if place in a Belgian style dubbel. The 8 % ABV is hidden good in the yeast dominated palate. Extremely nice head.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark red brown body topped by a medium thick off white head with a good amount of lace left behind. Slightly spicy and bready malt aroma with fruity (banana and orange) notes and a hint of alcohol and mint. Sweet and fruity malt flavor with a slight spiciness and a coffee/chocolate finish. Full bodied, smooth, yet tingling on the tongue and slightly warming.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice, clear reddish brown color with a medium sized off-white head that lingers. It has a nice, spicy aroma with yeast and hop notes. Full bodied with medium carbonation, the palate is very smooth and the flavor is nicely malty up front and the finish is sweet and slightly yeasty. A good Dubbel.

om a shared 750ml big bottled. Nice beer. A little to easy drinking because it didn't have much flavor. Smell and looked more powerful then it tasted.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle conditioned. Deep red brown, initially good creamy head soon thins leaving some lace but the good condition keeps a light covering of foam to the end. Chocolate nose with alcohol and a hint of smokiness that carries through into the flavour with hints of fig and roast barley. Roast dominates the finish leaving it dry and powdery

Very dissapointing. Brown color with a big frothy head. AAromma is plainly sweet with no charecter. Flavor matches with nothing of notiblity.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dirty brown color, with a full, thick head. Aroma is sweet, but not much else. The appearance had me expecting much more out of the taste than was there. A definite sweetness early on in the taste, with a smooth finish, but not much else. Alcohol is absent from the taste and odor. A nice beer overall, but I was a little disappointed.
