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.

Ik ben zeker fan van dubbel bieren maar deze vindt ik eigenlijk niet heel geweldig. Hij is redelijk zoet kwa smaak met een wat droge afdronk. Mooie schuimkraag op het bier.

Raisin brown color with a big creamy head. Aroma of raisins, dark fruit, spices, toffee, rich caramel. Taste surprisingly light for such a heavy beer, put me in mind of an English brown on steroids. Sweet, some banana notes, toffee, dark brown sugar, noticeable alcohol and some tin, which unfortunately lingers on the tongue. I hate Belgian beers but surprisingly I didn’t hate this. Nice dry finish makes you drink this down quickly, which could be dangerous...

SkillsFactory (33) - ITALY - APR 20, 2015
Marrone scura, quasi impenetrabile, schiuma nocciola chiara di media persistenza. Al naso banana matura e malto; man mano che si scalda note oleose ed alcoliche, leggermente pungente. Classico sapore di Dubbel: frutti rossi, malti torrefatti, amaro sul finale. Molto carbonata, corpo medio-leggero.

Caramel and yeasty aroma with notes of honey. Clear mahogany colour. Bitter front caught me off guard; notes of banana, toffee, and black coffee. Medium in body and carbonation. Nice, but a bit too bitter for my desire of a Dubbel.
