3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a brown colored beer with a medium sized, beige head. Aroma is yeasty, fruity, touch of sugar and some sweet malts. Flavour is light sweet, not overpowering, some spicy influences making it quite interesting. Well bodied, short finish. Very decent.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Brown mahogany, a gusher. Dark candi sugar, ripe old, slightly leathery, fruits (plums etc), hazelnuts and a strangely buttery belgy-yeastyness on nose. Smooth, well carbonated body. Soothing, flavourful, long. Lots of hazelnuttyness, a bit of darker roasted malts. Feels quite light actually on the palate, easy to drink. Overall quite a nice effort. The overly rich carbonation could be cut down on, but I’m guessing it’s probably not intentional anyway.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl. bottle shared with Kraddel on the train ride to Borefts 2013. BBF 07/11/2013. Drank straight from the bottle, procured from Willems. High carb. soy, slight smoke even, way more restrained than the porter but does remind me a little bit of that beer. Also getting sweet malt & thick brown sugar, high spices, some roast, caramel & serious dark bread. Pretty character-full & interesting dubbel. Nice brew, Viven is good stuff.
