Bottle (as maset rubia, 8%). Pours dark golden with whiteish head. Aroma is sweet, fresh fruits, apples. Flavor is sweet and bitter, malt, fruits. Finish is dry bitter. Overall: ok.Not abbey dubble or brune, so this alias is wrong.

Corked 750ml bottle. Nice dark mahogany pour, big fluffy cloud of beige head. Yeast aroma, caramel and brown sugar, prunes. Sweet burnt caramel flavour, a tangy citrus note, dark fruit. Soft mouthfeel with underlying small prickly bubbles, lingering tang like a fizzy candy, slight booze. Decent.

Gehbe (259) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JUN 15, 2016
Huge frothy head, long lasting, but not much lacing. Aroma: citrussy, fruity esters, some pepper/spice, also yeasty/earthy notes, some dried fruit, caramel and malt after warming up. Soft and complex at the same time. Tastes bitter-sweet with sourness from heavy carbonation to help balance the sweetness. Bitterness rather spicy than hoppy. A fairly light body, crispy and dry finish, pleasant alcoholic warmth. Wonderful beer, feels light for an 8% ABV brune.
