MrHangover (2449) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 18, 2011
Bottle under the name Zonderik Dubbel Bruin. Poured out into it’s goblet, showing a beautiful brown colour with a nice head on top. Aroma of wood and dark fruits. Easy palate with a nice soft flavour that is well balanced. Wood flavours alongside some bitterness. Intersting.

sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 14, 2011
bouteille 33cl as Dubbel Donker. Similaire en profile à la triple, du moins dans sa composition. Couleur cuivre/ambre, col épais ocre/ivoire. Arôme garde cet aspect intéressant d’épices qui confère à la bière ce nez qui me rappelle le whisky. A noter aussi, malt caramel, cumin et coriandre qui donnent une dimension intéressante à cette bière. Fine touche de vanille pour terminer. J’ai trouvé ce nez juste un cran en dessous de la triple. En bouche, goût vraiment exquis avec un mélange parfait de tous les ingrédients. Ressent la douceur du miel qui balance le malt caramel avec les épices dont aucunes ne semblent prendre le dessus. Malt garde aussi une note biscuité pour une bière dont le palais est épais. Similaire à l’arôme, je découvre encore dans cette version ce côté de bière en fût de whisky qui donne de bonnes saveurs tout au long de cette dégustation.

altonbrownd (3766) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 6, 2011
Bottle from Beer Planet. Body is dark brown with huge head. Nose of malts, caramel and annis. Taste also quite sweet, malty with some nice high ABV coming through in the finish. Nice and syrupy. Well done.

Marko (3878) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 25, 2011
Probably this one at the Fiere Margriet in Leuven, thanks Plavec! Dark red body, sticky sweet honey in the nose. Chalky too. Honey and malt in the taste, fruit, creamy, slightly spicy, no bitterness, interesting. Slightly unbalanced though.
