Vignale (3374) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2016
Flaska från Beernavigator ca 1,5 år gammal. Coca colafärgad, klar, lågt skum som långsamt försvinner utan att lämna rester. Mogen doft av torkad frukt, madeira, cola, plommon. Mjuk och rund i munnen, måttlig sötma, aningen platt och lite dammig vilket kanske är ett ålderstecken. Fin fruktig smakbild med väl integrerad smaker, lätt kärnbeska. En trevlig dubbel.

MiP (15304) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2015
Bottle, 7.5%. Milk chocolate aroma, slightly spicy, some brown sugar in the nose. Seemingly clear reddish dark brown colour. Very small frothy off-white head. The flavour has a nice mild chocolate note, not as much sugar as the aroma with being too dry. A mild and quite clean bitterness to balance. A pleasant and well-balanced dubbel.

Bamsen78 (5071) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy darkish ruby / copper brown with airy light tan head. Clear aroma of caramel malt with notes of fruit and touches of coffee. Bitter, roasty flavour with sweet notes of caramel malt and fruity touches. Bitterish and slightly acetic aftertaste with mild sweetish hints. A well-balanced and thoroughly enjoyable Dubbel. Nice.

drmet (824) - Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, GERMANY - NOV 16, 2015
L: -pours a hazy ruby-brown with a small to medium,foamy,beige head -no carbonation visible S: -chocolate,raisins,figs,leathery T: the nose plus plums,caramel,cherries and a slight acidity -finishes dry F: -low to medium carbonation -light body -slight alcohol warmth O: -Belgian Yeast character less pronounced The Beer was at the end of its BBD,so the low carbonation (for a Belgian Beer) maybe because of that. Good overall.

TBone (16197) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 22, 2015
Bottle 330ml (from BBF, BB 01/2016)
Deep ruby color, steady beige head, some lace. Ryeish malty, toasted, berryish and a bit medicinal aroma. Medium-bodied. Berryish flavor with candy sweetness. Hops are there too, some bitterness in the aftertaste. Berries dominate this bruin way too much.
