3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Poured a dark murky brown with a tan fizzy head that was fully diminishing and had poor lacing. The aroma was heavy of roasted malts and molasses, light resin hops and a moderate scent of a horse blanket yeast. It tasted slightly malty and extremely bitter at first and ended with a bitter acidic flavor that layed in the back of your throat. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a fizzy carbonation. Overall an OK brew, but nothing special.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33L bottle. Pours clear dark red-brown with a rocky tan head. Really nice, and noteworthy aromas. Clove, bubblegum, rubber (not unpleasant), plum. Very mild sweetness at beginning, transitions to almost nothing in the middle, then the bubblegum sweetness kicks in, followed by yeast and resiny/herby hop biterness. Medium-full body with an oily mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, on the herbier side for a dubbel (not too sweet). Some really nice aromas, but flavor profile is somewhat muted.

Cloudy brown pour with half a glass of white/cream colored head. Dark fruits on the nose with moderate banana, raisin, and hop taste. Great dubbel that makes me wish that I would have bought more than one.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice brown with a ruby highlight with a medium offwhite head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of bread, dark fruits, light candi sugar and some subtle spices. Taste is of raisins and other dark fruits, moderately sweet. Light banana. Body is medium and carbonation just too high for my liking. Finish is slightly bitter and spicy. Overall a fine dubbel, it didn’t quite reach my expectations for it but it was still really fine!

Very good dubbel. Nice aroma of ripe fruit like bananas, plums and cherries. Bitter-sweet taste which is nearing red wine. Nicely hidden alcohol. One of the best dubbels in the world. No doubts.

Een klassieke, donkere dubbel. Rokerig, houterig en toch ook wat fruitig. Lichte schuimkraag.

Botella de 33 cl de el c. Ingles tomada en agosto de 1999 con fecha de cons pref para 05-01-2000. de las primeras belgas de compra, toda una sorpresa de sabores tostados con cierto dulzor en aquella época. Tomada varias veces mas, merece la pena darle otra oportunidad en cualquier momento. Bastante buena.
