Nice dark colour, good head with average retention. Some flaky yeast bits sink to the bottom of the goblet. Complex aroma of fruits (plums and cherries), sweetness, malty caramel, chocolat and finally some yeasty banana. Fruitiness dominates, but this is actually very pleasant as it smells like ripe fruits. No chemical aroma whatsoever. The fruits and malts come back in the taste as well, but fruit no longer dominates. There is a smooth bitterness that sets the tone and harmonizes well with the sweet fruits and caramels. The beer feels creamy like a Chouffe. Because the bitterness restricts the sweetness, you can taste bread as well. Malty goodness. Very refreshing with modest alcohol. This is such a nice beer, complex and characterful.

Sødlig og let maltet. En del kraft fra alkoholen. En klassiker som skal nydes en stille aften.

Mooi donker bier met een goeie schuimkraag. Een volle smaak, subtiele geur en een fijne, lichtdroge nasmaak. De beste dubbel die ik ken.

Evilkniamhel (80) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 29, 2016
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours deep reddish brown. Lovely fruity aromas, lots of fresh banana. The fruit is present in the taste and brought into balance with bitter toastiness from the malts. Lovely smooth texture and a long finish.

Pours dark brown with a red hue and a dissipating off-white head. The aroma contains brown bread, dough, sugar, roasted malts, raisins.Tastes medium sweet and medium bitter, with a rather pleasant dry and dough-like finish. Enjoyable palate. Lively in carbonation and full in body. Warming alcohol just like its blonde brother. Excellent to have with your meal (esp. red meat).

Bottle to tulip. Dark brown near opaque. Bubbly head that is effervescent. Highly carbonated. Nose is burnt sugar, prune, banana. Sweet dried fruit up front with malty mild spicy overtones; prickly carbonation / surprising hop bitterness on the back end.

Bottle 33cl. Deep dark brown, syruppy with a sturdy off white head. Sweet aroma of sugar and malts. The taste starts mildly sweet, but quickly develops a bitter undertone. Nice!
