Aftertaste dried fruits dominates more than roasted malts.Very enjoyable as dessert more please.

330ml bottle (Kaunis Kampela, Helsinki, Belgian Weeks)
Dark reddy-brown, small tight head. Rich sweet malty aroma - plums, but also rich malt loaf. Quite crisp carbonation. Pretty sweet taste - like the burnt raisins stuck to the side of a cake tin after baking. Rich roasty and cakey malt. Treacle. Mirjukka mentioned Samichlaus, and I think she’s not far out. Yum.

Bottled, 330ml, at t’Velootje, Ghent. Dark brown with cream head. Nice spritzy, lively, fresh bruin, fruity and not over spiced, giving a strong but smooth beer. Really very good.

[1165-20080301] Tap. Stuffy sweet dark fruit aroma has a bit of roasted malt. Dark dark brown body with a medium-lasting foamy light tan head. Sweet alcohol malt flavour is again quite roasty. Medium-full body. Repeatable, good.

dark roasted maltiness. This was a nice dubbel. paired with lamb and beef burger combo main dish I had at den djiver, bruges, and it was an excellent match. I think it was used in the food prep too.
