Jonb5 (522) - Greater London, - JAN 11, 2013
330ml bottle, poured into Leffe chalice. Colour was dark auburn, small tanned head which didnt last long although some lacing was retained. Aroma was yeast, a hint of cranberry and liquorice. Tasted cranberry, carrot and berries, yeast strain seemed to be the same as other Van Steenberge beers. Well carbonated, slightly thick body, smooth. Overall hid the booze well, which is always a plus point, nice beer to accompany a heavy meal.

Mly, gesztenyebarna sznű főzet krmes habbal a tetejn, ahogyan az egy dubbeltől elvrhat. Kenyrhjas, lesztős aromi kz prklt, karcosabb jegyek is vegylnek, melyek aztn zben is rendre visszaksznnek, ahol egybknt a savanyks bevezető mellett egy kvs, stout-szerű hats r majd minket, mikzben a cseppet szraz vgkifejlet fel haladunk a kenyrtszts, pirtott malts svnyen. Nem a legizgalmasabb dubbel, amivel eddig dolgom volt, de vllalhat, rdekes darab.

330ml bottle:
Quite a disappointing offering on the whole despite starting quite well thanks to the nice combination of caramel & toffee flavours plus the biscuit malts at the start. The problem with this one was that it seemed to fade far too quickly & come the middle there wasnt really much of anything going on save for some subtle fruits & a hint of sugar. Quite a bland & uninspiring offering that seemed a little plain & definitely wasnt as good as some of the better Belgian dubbels Ive tried in the past; this is probably one to avoid I afraid.

PowY (435) - AUSTRIA - JAN 25, 2017
330 ml bottle. Pours a hazy red-brown with a beige head. Mild aroma with some caramel malt and a light fruitiness. Medium to full body with a medium carbonation, a medium sweetness and a very light bitterness in the finish. The taste is malty with caramel, brown sugar and dark fruits. Overall mild and balanced.

promontor (132) - HUNGARY - JAN 14, 2017
0.33l bottle from Lidl. Dark brown ruby body, moderate beige head, bit sparkling. Cocoa aroma. Taste is way too light for a dubbel, sweet like coke. Some caramel, little bit of roasted malt. Mild sweet aftertaste with well hidden bitterness. Fairly strong carbonation, like coke. Not convincing, drinkable but way too simple.
