De Dolle Special Extra Export Stout
Bottle 330ml - cellared for approximately 1-2 years. Served at room temperature. Pours a dark murky brown. Head is enormous, tanned, dense, and mostly lasting. Aroma is of dusted Belgian chocolates; lightly toasted brown bread, cooked brown sugar, blueberries, dried currants, plums, liquorice sticks, a touch of molasses and hints of leather. Flavour is extremely smooth and somewhat vinous, with a very light toasted/roasted bitterness; toasted wholegrain bread, sour grains, blueberries, blackberries, dried currants, liquorice chews (sweets), dark chocolate, horse blanket, and light notes of charcoal in the finish. Medium bodied, with lively carbonation, an oily texture and a long dry, toasty finish. ABV is EXTREMELY well hidden! Quite a decent drop, but a little thin for my liking.

De Dolle Dulle Teve 10ş (Mad Bitch)
Tap@Fermentoren. Pours hazy orange golden with lazing offwhite head. Aroma has light malt, biscuit, light bread, ripe fruity notes like apricot. Also spicy with warm orange and hints of coriander. Taste is complex and surprisingly sweet with a complex mix of light malt, biscuit, caramel, ripe fruit and spices with coriander and white pepper. Finish is warm, alcoholic, dry yet semi-sweet and spicy. A modern tripel.

De Dolle Dulle Teve 10ş (Mad Bitch)
Mousse peu persistante. Couleur cuivrée. Épices, foin, levure belge. Quelques notes de fruits műrs, mais ça reste léger. Par contre on est vraiment sur la levure, le pain. Un peu d’amertume aussi. Puissante en alcool en arričre bouche. On est limite sur un goűt de fromage de Maredsous. Bien dans l’ensemble.

De Dolle Dulle Teve 10ş (Mad Bitch)
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB JUL 2017 Pours a big white foam dying into a dense cap atop a murky orange body. Moderate intensity nose; plenty of yeast character - bread dough, stewed apple, ripe pear & apricot, white pepper, clove & nutmeg, toast, caramel, touch of booze. Lively carbonation, creamy body, would be rather sweet & rich without the carbonation cutting through. Long persistence on the palate. Lovely palate - ripe banana & toffee (Banoffee!?), bread crust & sweet dough, stacks of pepper & clove & cinnamon, sultana, boozy warmth, a long smooth earthy spicy finish with moderate bitterness. Tremendous Belgian strong!

De Dolle Special Extra Export Stout
Imbottigliata a luglio 2014, best before luglio 2016, aperta il 18 settembre 2016, 9% ABV. Tonaca di frate scura, schiuma nocciola chiaro copiosa, di aspetto "saponoso", di media persistenza. Aroma di caffč, leggero cioccolato, elevata ossidazione, leggera liquirizia. Al palato prevale sempre l’ossidazione, che oltre il metallo puň ricordare la prugna secca, liquirizia, molto presente il caffč che cede il passo ad una piacevole nota di cioccolato. Cioccolato che risulta presente anche nel finale insieme ad un amaro tostato ed erbaceo, sempre presenti le note ossidate, piacevoli note di legno. Corpo tra il medio ed il medio-pieno, carbonazione media, medio-bassa, di certo ha visto giorni migliori, ma risulta comunque piacevole.

De Dolle Stille Nacht
Piana obfita, średnio oczkowa, bardzo trwała. Barwa ciemno złota, mętna, z pływającymi drobinkami drożdży. W aromacie sporo kandyzowanych owoców, karmelu, miodu, jasnego winogrona, rodzynek, w tle odrobina przypraw i placek drożdżowy. W smaku dość słodkie, pikantne, przyprawowe, z konkretną słodową podstawą i wyraźnym chmieleniem. Sporo tu suszonych moreli, rodzynek, kandyzowanej skórki pomarańczy, skórki cytryny, a wszystko wieńczy keks bakaliowy i miód. Goryczka średnia do niskiej, ziołowo alkoholowa. Wysycenie średnie, treściwe, pełne i lepkie w odbiorze, nieco zbyt alkoholowe.
Piwo ma potencjał do leżakowania - słodowe, słodkie, alkoholowe - ma się tu co układać. Na chwilę obecną, prawie rok od rozlewu, wciąż brak balansu i gładkości...

Bottle shared, thanks Neil! Great treat, probably one of my favorite classic Xmas beers, lots of fruity esters supported by weedy hops, yummy sugar cane, definitely some heat on the finish but that’s what xmas beers are all about. Outstanding!

De Dolle Oerbier Special Reserva
Bottle. 2009 vintage. Delices & Caprices, Brussels. Rusty, ruby red. Would have been without haze, but I do like to pour in the yeast. Film, and dense ring of beige head. Nose has burnt raspberry and cherry. Black cherry stone. Some red wine barrel. Bit of oaky vanilla. Some very light oxidation. Some fruity esters. Smells fantastic. Taste is fruity, estery sweet, getting tart, unripe cherry sour. Never feels the ABV. Soft acidity. Foamy mouthfeel. Dry, tangy, cherry stone finish. Lovely.

Bottle shared. Thanks Neil! Pours a slighty hazy copper with a finger of foam. Lovely yeast character on the nose with nutmeg and clove alongside autumn fruit and some apricot. Dangerously smooth and so drinkable. A touch of booze on the finish with more fruit and spice. Everything comes together very well.

Bottle. Smells and tastes like lemon pixie stix in dishwater. Fucked up version of one of my favorite beers. I will be hesitant to buy another new De Dolle bier, if they ever actually roll out a new beer, because of this criminal act.

De Dolle Oerbier Special Reserva
Vörösesbarna "sour ale"-költemény, tojásfehér krémhabbal, élénk, szinte vad aroma-kompozícióval, ami nyilvánvalóan a fanyar mondanivaló körül koncentrálódik, mely azonban nem válik uralkodóvá; a balzsamecetes, éretlen jegyek mellett zöldalmás, cseresznyés, marcipános, belga élesztős árnyalatok is megvillannak. A likőrös hangulatok is leginkább illatában vannak jelen, hiszen a legnagyobb talányként az alkoholfok feltüntetett mértéke említhető, ami ízvilágára a legkisebb mértékben sem nyomja rá a bélyegét, sőt... Nem az a könnyfakasztó savanyúság, elegáns vonalakkal megáldott karakter, mely kellőképpen gyümölcsös, meglehetősen részletgazdag, többféle árnyalatban játszó. Néhol vörös -, néhol sárga gyümölcsök képe tűnik elő, máskor száraz boros, érett, fás hangulatok hordozója, mindenesetre izgalmas és könnyedén fogyasztható főzet.

0.33 l bottle at ’Dulle Griet’. Slightly hazy, golden amber with a massive, foamy, almost stable, white head. Sweetish, yeasty-spicy and a bit fruity aroma of peach, pear, clove, some caramel and hints of honey. Sweetish-malty, yeasty-spicy and a bit fruity taste of peach, clove, caramel, pear and honey, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, rather yeasty-spicy finish. Medium body, very effervescent mouthfeel, average to lively carbonation. Again way too much carbonation, the same as for the Dulle Teve and the Stout, but apart from that quite tasty. Nothing special though, the beer really suffers from the carbonation.

Medium body, very effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Tasty, rather intense but well-balanced stuff, unfortunately too much carbonation.

De Dolle Dulle Teve 10ş (Mad Bitch)
After the success of Tripel Karmeliet, I’m doing the unthinkable and rating a Tripel that isn’t a part of the book. Aroma is clove, barnyard, yeast, banana, earthy hops, booze. Appearance is dark goldenrod, light tan head, super hazy. Taste is booze, clove, yeast, banana, tropical fruit, dry, really boozy. Mouthfeel is medium body, light and very crisp carbonation, boozy clove aftertaste. Overall, yikes this is hot. But I bet the booze hid the less palatable flavors normally associated with the style.

De Dolle Dulle Teve 10ş (Mad Bitch)
Roppantul telt kinézetű, szalmasárga színű belga tripel, az egyik legjobb a piacon: valószínűleg ez esetben hihetünk a pontok hitelességében, a következő fázisok legalábbis ennek ellenkezőjét nem indokolják. Kirobbanásig teli aromahalmaz a megszokott gabonás, frissítően savanykás, élesztősen fanyar jegyekkel, intenzív tripelbomba pezsgő hangulattal. Ízvilága hasonlóképpen gazdag, gabonaszirup a javából, melyben az édeskés jegyeket remekül egyenlítik ki a karakteresen kesernyés vonalak az utóízben. Hiperszuper abbey tripel.

De Dolle Arabier
Atromat: dominują cytrusy pochodzące zapewne z chmielu oraz fenole z drożdży. Nieco nut kwiatowych, miodu czy alkoholu. Ogólnie nieźle.

Wygląd: tutaj zaczynają się schody, bowiem zaskakuje nieustanny (choć nie nagły) gushing. Barwa złota, niestety zmętniona, z pływającymi drobinkami. Piana biało- żółta, średnio i grubo pęcherzykowa, obfita (raczej wymuszona), ale umiarkowanie trwała.

Smak: zaznaczona słodycz, sporo owoców (cytrusy, brzoskwinie, morele), nuty przyprawowe, miodowe i alkohol, który z czasem jeszcze się nasila. Ze słodu może herbatniki. Goryczka w okolicach średniej, wychodzi stopniowo i dość długo pozostaje, ale nie zalega. Krągła pełnia, umiarkowane do wysokiego wysycenie i goryczkowo- cytrusowy finisz z wyraźną nuta alkoholową.

Dosyć orzeźwiające, jak na Belgian Strong. Byłoby ciekawiej, gdyby było świeże i bardziej owocowe.

De Dolle Special Extra Export Stout
Waaay overcarbonated... Aroma is not even close to a Stout... definately a beefed/darked up BSDA... Fruity yeast funks and dark roasted malts. Flavor is even more like a BSDA.. raisins and dried sour cherries ... chocolate malts.. with a healthy stir of cocoa powder... only a smidgen of noble hops ... bitterness is too hard to pick out of the dark grains... fruity verging on slightly sour toward the tip of the tounge and lingering on the lips... but still tastes very good... burpy.... coffee Belgian ester burps.

This one’s looking at you, Travlr, Bottle in a snifter showing tea brown with two fingers of clean white foam. The nose shows dish detergent (think palmolive). The palate is well carbonated and light bodied. A mess of flavors including the dish detergent flavors, a dairy-like yogurt-like strong tartness, and a very strong bitterness that comes and goes. Not much to like about this beer, but it’s seriously not as bad as I thought.
