Derbeth (383) - Kraków, POLAND - JAN 10, 2015
Bottle with expiry 03/2016. Black colour, rocky head. Aroma of dark chocolate, dried fruit, with intensive bready aftertaste. I like there is not much raisins and prunes in the aroma. Alcohol well hidden. Also not too sweet. Lively carbonation. Very good.

Kleurplaatje (55) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2015
Pours deep dark with a lasting, frothy off-white head. Appealing looks, beautiful dubbel. Rich, fruity aroma. Clear presence of dark fruits, plums, berries, nuts, some banana and a tad of caramel as well. Has something vinous as well. Exciting. Taste is mildly sweet with a dryish touch. Clear presence of the fruits, definitely banana, raisins, plums, cloves, spices (slightly peppery), small alcohol bite. Truly marvellous. Some warmishness in the end, accompanied with a roasty feeling and soft sweetish (close to dry), almost vanilla-like taste. Soft, yet so rich. Wonderful taste. Full bodied, bit of a thinnish, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Bit too much carbonation to my likings. So, the palate is a bit of a minor point. But indeed, this brew is truly astonishing. Well-balanced, beautifully crafted brew by the Westmalle monks.

Bottle from Smatch, Brussels. Easy to drink, dark, reddish-brown Trappist beer with a secondary fermentation in the bottle. Triple version is more heavy to drink
