Augustijn Donker is the logical addition to the existing beers Augustijn Blonde and Augustijn Grand Cru and is a true beer of 8% alc. that appeals both the occasional as the seasoned beer lover! With the grand balance between aroma, taste and after taste, the Augustijn Donker is added value in this segment and ensures that the range of Augustijn beers reflects a delicious spectrum of tastes within the rich Belgian beer culture. The beer is not distinctly sweet, as many would expect from a dark specialty beer. It tastes rather lightly smoked with a touch of nuts and caramel.

330ml bottle. Pours reddish-brown with fluffy beige head. Roasted malt and mild fruit aroma. Has some light toffee-caramel sweetness. Bigger bodied, strong and with some bite to the finish.

Aroma faint, rather alcoholic, appearance beautiful: dark redbrown with thick, sticky head. Taste warm caramel, licorice, only a hint of dark fruits, mostly an alcoholic fruityness. Decent abbey dubbel.

Trs belle robe rouge rubis! On sent le malt torrfi,fruits rouges et alcool avec un lger got fum accompagn dune douceur agrable. Une pointe de caramel et chocolat arrive peu aprs avec une arrire bouche lgrement sche et amre. Excellente bire trs complexe et subtile mais nanmoins elle manque un peu de corps!

Gote dans un verre Charles Quint Robe brun sombre presque opaque surmonte dune mousse consquente et persistante de couleur ivoire. Nez au accents de malts lgrement torrfis, de caramel avec une petite note de caf. Got dans la ligne et plutt bien quilibr avec un trs lger manque dpaisseur. Arrire bouche de longueur moyenne sur le caramel. Un jolie brune!

Purchased as part of Winter Belgium Beer Sampler Pack. Pours a dark redish brown. Head thins out quickly but remains to the end. Taste is not as sweet as a typical Belgium beer, but more full. Good amount of carbonation with zero aftertaste. Would hardly tell it was 8% Alcohol. Will look for this beer again. MB The Beer Bear-on

Fules (1014) - Gyngys, HUNGARY - JUN 11, 2016
Nagyon finom karamells illat, szp barna szn, s drapp, krmes, tarts hab. Iszonyan fincsi karamells z, ami az első korttyal szinte rtr az emberre. Azutn előbjnak a szőkre jellemző fűszeres, komls zek. Testes sr, gyenge utzzel. Az alkoholt itt sem rezni.
