3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Moderate cereal and roasted for the malt, faint orange for the hops, moderate dough for the yeast, with date, toffee and brown sugar. Head is small, frothy, beige with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky dark brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation. More acidic and bitter then most Abbey Dubbels, but still a tasty beer

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark red brown beer with quickly disappearing foam. Smells of liquorice, hints of coffee and caramel in the aroma. Full body, relatively bitter finish which is a bit surprising, Certainly not sweet or sour

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Botlle 33 cl. Pours dark brown with a small head that leaves some traces to the glass and an aroma of caramel, malts, some hops, licorice, raisin, chocolate and molasses. On the taste there’s licorice again, herbs, ripe fruits, chocolate, nuts, cream and some alcohol. A nice and pretty original double!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from ABC Leuven. Dark brown with orange-red tints and a huge, airy head. Big malty nose, chocolate, fudge, raisins, treacle, orange. Rich and malty. This is the kind of thick, juicy dubbel I dig. Chocolate fudge and tracle, with dried fruits, and just enough tart orange and bitter hop to balance it balanced. Finishes quite clean and dry. Rich and thick body. Slightly roasty in the finish. Excellent.

Bouteille de 33cl 8,5% Bière cuivrée (noisette) avec un filet de mousse. Un nez de fruits secs, de raisins, sucre brun. Une bouche étonnante, sucrée mais pas trop, des saveurs de fruits secs, raisins, et de noix.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
SAQ special import. Pours a deep amber colour with lots of tiny particles. Big creamy-froth beige head, great retention and some foamy lace. Aromas are all over the place with some mild sourness, some roasted malts, dark fruits (raisins, plums), licorice, molasses and grassy hops. Slight creamy and mostly wet mouthfeel. Very light dryness in the finish, but more tart. Again, lots of dark fruits in the taste, with some mild chocolate malt and the rusty hop which I am not a fan. Other than that, decent dark Belgian Strong Ale.
