yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, - MAY 16, 2013
Bottle. Nice lacings left as the creamy off-white head sinks with the constantly lower level of unlcear, dark amber beer. Prunes, dark sugar, some grassy, peppery hops, and some pastry hints. Prunes, dark sugar, grassy hops and some spiced notes. Full body, very dry on the palate, with soft and pleasant carbonation. Bitter, yet malty sweet finish. A quite pleasant one, but it sort of lacks the balance one normally expect from Belgian beer. 130516

33cl flesje bij Zeezicht, Breda Alcoholpercentage van 7,5% Uitgeschonken in origineel Viven glas Uiterlijk: roodbruin met redelijke schuimkraagje Aroma en smaak: ijzer, bitter, geur van rozijnen, amper zoet voor een bruin/dubbel Conclusie: niet wat ik van dit type bier verwacht ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

danielyabu (1235) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - NOV 17, 2014
huge frothy offwhite head. excellent lacing. mostly diminishing. flat thick caramel-brown body. aroma: moderate malt, milk chocolate, toffee and alcohol. if: moderate sweet. ff: moderate sweet very light bitter; average duration. palate: medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation, metallic finish. Saboroso dulcor de caramelo. Mais suave que outras Dubbel, mas sente-se leve álcool no paladar. O dulçor excessivo com quase nenhum amargor a torna enjoativa. 60 s

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg. Brown with a beige head. Malty aroma with some dark fruits and caramel. Sweet malty taste. Simple but decent

Lowenbrau (2132) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 28, 2014
33cl bottle @Alt Strasse, Gijón. 16-02-2014.
In short: average belgian ale.
Pours dark brown mahogany with nice off white head. Poor head retention and some lacing. Malty, caramel and some cheesy aromas. Taste is liquorice, caramel, malty, some off flavours. A bit watered down.

Dark brown with small head. Nice fruity flavor that’s a bit watered down. OK, but could’ve been better.

minutemat (1878) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2014
330ml bottle from Vanxueem. Pours dark brown, quite a lively one with large head. A sweet dubbel with plump dark fruits and fervent liquorice flavours.

Daanminator (161) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2014
Troebel bruin bier met kleine schuimkraag. Weinig smaak en bouquette. Niet mijn favoriet deze.

Alengrin (2425) - BELGIUM - AUG 23, 2014
Dubbel with off-white, creamy head and murky bronze robe. Aroma of pear, raisins, caramel, brown candi sugar, flowery hops. Dark fruits in the mouth on a sweetish caramel malt base, medium hoppy finish. Okay for the style and enjoyable, but nothing to get all excited about.

mikske79 (1247) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - AUG 18, 2014
Een bier met een hele lekkere smaak, voor mij het beste bier in de Viven-serie.
