kapusil (1239) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 3, 2016
0.33l bottle. Dark ruby/brown body, off-white head. Aroma and taste of caramel, toast, cocoa and smoke. It has a bit sour grainy character to it too. Nothin to write home about, but drinkable.

rodbod (224) - SCOTLAND - NOV 26, 2016
Bottle from Lidl. Dark brown colour, with a frothy head. Not much on the nose, just a little spice and barley. Not much taste either, just some sweet malt. Seems pretty light for 7.2%. Good value for money at least

Antzrhere (96) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2016
Pours brown with beige head. Whilst not the strongest flavoured or most complex double, i found this beer to be well balanced. Very mild spice flavours, caramel. Similar aroma, if a little weak. Unfortunately the last beer I had was a Rochefort which this doesnt compare to. Almost like an an English Special Ale. Still, while a little simple its still and enjoyable, warming beer

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2016 Butelka 330ml. Ciemnobrazowe. Piana palona .srednia opada dosc szybko. W zapachu karmel palone slody toffi drozdze i banany. W smaku podobnie . Alkohol dobrze ukryty, nie przeszkadza . Mozna jeszcze dodac rodzynki i ciemne owoce. Niezle

darbeer75 (628) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - OCT 29, 2016
Aroma: lightly malty, but not much there; Appearance: very dark amber pour with fluffy offwhite head that lingers; nice lacing; Taste: malty and sweet with slightly unpleasant sourness in the background; Palate: medium body with long, malty finish; Overall: okay but tastes like a cheaper dubbel without much complexity.

Pongauer (74) - Maassluis, NETHERLANDS - OCT 28, 2016
A lightly carbonated, dark dubbel. Somewhat sweet but just a little too flat and watery for my taste. Not Steenberges best.
