Bottle at Cerveceria Oldemburg, march 07. Deep copper color with a nice beigehead. Aroma is crystal malts and some dried fruits. Tastes deep of caramel, prunes, regaliz, very deep, layered and warming. Really niche, malty, hearty dubbel.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice deep color, with light head. Flavor of malt and deep woodish notes. Did not like as much as the lighter, more flavorful tripel.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Moderate Malty aroma with hints of smoke or cask, a small head which dissapeared very quickly. A cloudy body with a red hue, initial taste was lightly acidic with a moderate finish, a very moderate body, dry texture and lively on the tongue, I really enjoyed this and I shall happily try it again
As I am typing this I am sensing a coffee aftertaste

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Murky brown, pale head quickly foams to the rim of the glass. Smells somewhat metallic, light hops, and sweet. Strong carbonation, the flavor is hard to place, sweet, fruity, airy and light. Quite refreshing.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thick dark brown colour. Tight, thin creamy head. Rich, bitter, malty aroma, some coffee in there. Initial flavour is bittersweet developing into a more flowery aromatic taste. Feels lively and highly carbonated in the mouth. There’s an aftertaste containing some liquorice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep mahogany brown color poured from the bottle at the Belgian beer fest in Carlsbad. Fruity and raisin on the nose. Some brown sugar and caramel on the palate but not much to chew on. Short finish without a ton of complexity. Unfortunately dissapointed.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark reddish brown with a fine tan head. Sweetish aroma. Fuity taste has notes of cherry and currants, but fairly dry with some nice bitterness on the finish. Not very complex but well balanced.
