A reddish brown body comes out topped by a light beige cloudy head that last. Dense beverage combining chocolate, yeast and banana aromas. Malty start with fruity and yeasty hints. Watery middle taste with spicy and hoppy finish. Fair bitterness. Sparkling. A bit disappointing. Was hopping for a more finished and complex product. Something more racy. We’re very far from Rochefort delightful ale..

Copenhagen 28/5 2015. 33 cl bottle from Gunnar Madsen Vinhandel. Pours clear dark brown with big beige head. Head subsides to thin lacing after a couple of minutes. Aroma is of dark malts, yeast, plum and alcohol. Medium carbonation. Taste is tinged with alcohol and bitterness. Some subdued sweetness for balance. A bit of burnt cardboard in the aftertaste. Fine dark Belgian fella with more rough edges than many of its industrial cousins.

Bottle from Auchan. Pours dark brown, almost black, with nice head which howecer dissipates pretty quickly. It look basically just like Coca-Cola, but it smells much better: Chocolate, banana, coffee, roast aromas, dark fruits and even a hint of leather. The beer feels super-foamy and creamy in the mouth and has a very nice carbonation. The sweetness and bitterness are very well balanced and the nice, bitter aftertaste stays with you for a long time. Classy! Will drink again.

Barwa ciemno brązowa, wpadająca w bordo, opalizująca. Piana spora, sycząca, średnio i grubo pęcherzykowa, szybko opada do obrączki. W aromacie czerwone owoce typu czereśnia, wiśnia, śliwka, ciemne winogrono oraz suszone daktyle, rodzynki, troszkę nut melanoidynowych i karmelowo-czekoladowych. W smaku wszystko to ma swoje lustrzane odbicie, lekka słodycz figowo-miodowa (z jednej strony nie przesadzona jak w wielu Dubblach a z drugiej jednak wyraźnie zaznaczona), lekka kwaskowatość pumpernikla, goryczka pestkowo-ziołowo-chmielowa - wszystko świetnie wyważone, zbalansowane i ułożone. Alkohol niewyczuwalny, jedynie delikatne rozgrzewanie w aftertejsie obok przyjemnego posmaku domowego wina głogowego. W tej cenie bez wątpienia trudno znaleźć trunek o porównywalnej renomie i bogactwie aromatyczno-smakowym. Profil półsłodki i półpełny, na uwagę zasługuje idealny balans i duża pijalność dzięki dość wysokiemu drobnemu nagazowaniu oraz sporemu jak na Dubbla nachmieleniu. Wyborny trunek!

Perfect off-white head. It looks delecious. Aroma is sweet, with some roasted malts in the background. Taste, raisins, belgian yeast, caramel, maybe some esters, piney and earthy tones aswell, a bit roasty at the background again. Long aftertaste. I feel the alcohol warming inside. A perfect dubbel imo. Med carbo and med-full body.
