ZeroDome (96) - GERMANY - APR 16, 2016
Ruby-dark color, big creamy head. Smell of breadcrust, malt. Body is rather low, finish is quite hoppy and bitter. More than in my memories for this bottle. Too much, but this leads to a refreshing character. Alcohol is well hidden. I´m missing the dried fruits, caramel, raisin part. Somewhat thin. BBF Sept. 2017.

Escura, opaca. Espuma bege abundante de longa duração. Aroma adocicado de ameixas. Sabor adocicado, ácido, com notas de ameixas, madeira, café, melado, alcaçuz, chocolate, banana e especiarias. Retrogosto amargo de café.

Teran (262) - Belgrade, SERBIA - APR 12, 2016
UPDATED: APR 13, 2016 Cloudy chestnut caramel colour, nice beige top. Average carbonation. Slightly thin body for Dubbel, but refreshing. Some plums, hops, honey, dark fruits, but none of the taste is dominant, the same is with Trippel Westmalle. That means this beer is distinctively well balanced. Westmalle Dubbel is a dark Trappist beer with a secondary fermentation in the bottle.

jerama (49) - SLOVENIA - APR 11, 2016
Aroma of wine, raisins, alcohol and chocolate. Pours a dark brown color with a rocky beige head. Taste also of wine, raisins and chocolate. Present is also a sour taste and a sharp bitterness, but very short aftertaste. Moderate body, smooth texture, low carbonation and strong alcohol.

Leaving the yeast glass (lovely on its own) served in its proper glass. Lovely dark strong beer. One of my all time favourites.

Studoffsky (78) - POLAND - APR 6, 2016
UPDATED: APR 6, 2016 Mocny aromat, ciemne s?ody, pumpernikiel, banan, d?emy z czerwonych owoców. Kolor - ciemnoczerwony wpadaj?cy w br?z. W ustach nuty toffee, banana, nowofalowej kwaskowej kawy, pieprzu, potem typowe dla "belgów" gruszki i jab?ka. Umiarkowane wysycenie, krótki wytrwany finisz. Bardzo dobre.

Akiro (41) - ITALY - APR 3, 2016
Degustate in bottiglia da 75 centilitri. All’aspetto impeccabile, un retrogusto leggermente amarognolo. Liquorosa, bouquet di odori poco vario: caffè e cioccolato. Eccellente birra belga tradizionale pastosa corposa decisa. Una birra per chi ama i sapori decisi non le vie di mezzo.

pitch992 (100) - SLOVENIA - APR 2, 2016
Aroma: caramel, dough, toast, raisins, banana, some gentle spices, fruity. brown, hazy, off - white foam, good retention. light sweetness, lightly bitter, some gentle alcohol, raisins, banana, fruity, toast. medium body, slick feel, average carbonation, long finish that is slightly sweet and gently dry. Overall a nicely balanced dubble with a bit too much sweetness for its own good and too little of the claimed dryness. Enjoyed the fruitiness though.

Bottle at home. Beautiful dark brown colour, big foamy beige head that keeps a nice lacing. Nicely spicy, roasted malty, dried fruity, caramel notes in the nose and taste: nicely balanced. Lively carbonation, medium body.
