33 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu. Rated on 13.04.2011
Aroma is spicy with lots of anise and licorice. Also hints of sugar. Flavour is really stuffed with anise and licorice. Also some other spices and brown sugar. Feels a lot like Gouden Carolus Christmas. Not your typical Dubbel.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautiful red with a creamy tan head. Very rich in fruit, dark malts, hint of sourness, caramel and cloves. Medium, fizzy carbonation and medium heavy body. Not only a solid sweetness but also some sharp hops. But sticky in the end. Very classic Belgian, but we’ll made. Pleasant drink, if not multiple on a night. (33cl bottle, cheap)
