4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark brown color, almost black. Served to me without much head, little more than a ring left but that ring persisted forever. One of the best smelling beers I’ve ever put a nose to. Nose has notes of raisin, plum, pear, banana, and a hint of cherry. Flavor is fruity and full. Mouthfeel is rich and slippery. Lingering fruity finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is hazy dark brown colored and has a cream colored head, with livingly CO2.
The aroma is roasted malts, a fruitiness from dark fruits and some yeast and spices.
The taste is light sweet and malty with some tones of caramel. After that a light sourness and bitterness from the spices is noticable.
The finish is light sour and refreshing and a little bitter.
OK Dubbel, but there are better ones.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cola colour, nice carbonation from the onset, modest foam head. Almost like a Cola (!). Aroma: typical Belgian double with a very pronounced metallic aroma. Prunes, dark fruits (raspberries, blackberries), also a very nice pear aroma. Fruity, as is to be expected from the Witkap line-up. The yeast adds an acidic touch, however. Taste: very mellow, with distinct grass and earth notes, chestnuts, some basement funk, slightest creamy touch. If I had to describe it: a bit like walking in an autumn forest. Development is mildly bitter, sweet, and faintly boozy. Aftertaste is neutral, with some brown sugar notes. Very gentle Double, nice!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl, slightly aged bb 01/2016. Thinnish chestnut pour, fizzy froth. Thin mélange of fig jam, stewed maroni, cocoa powder and something metallic, bretty even. Missed some cream or dark/roasted malt textures here. - Will have to revisit either bottled or on tap, feel this beer can do more.
