33 cl bottle bought from Lidl. Pours brown color with medium head. Aroma is malty, notes of caramel, yeast, coffee. Taste has notes of caramel, some fruits, bread, malty. Light texture, medium carbonation, finish is a medium bitter, but very smooth and nice. Overall a very good beer.

bonkiedeaap (736) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2017
Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel Belgium. The beer is dark brown colored and has a large and stable beige head with nice carbonation. The aroma is malty, with notes of caramel, yeast, bread, a hint of alcohol and dried and dark fruits. The taste is medium to full bodied sweetness and has notes of caramel and fruits and changes into light bitter with alcohol, yeast and spices. The finish is light dry and bitter with warming alcohol.

BrettTaylor (768) - Radford, Virginia, USA - APR 19, 2017
Poured from bottle into glass - pours a medium brown with a slightly tan creamy head. Nice malty, bready notes on nose. Similar on the palate, creamy, and pretty darn nice.

Brandon1989 (636) - Lewisville, Texas, USA - APR 18, 2017
Pours a dark brown with some thick sediment chunks floating around with a very thick off white head. The aroma is brown bread, sugar cane, alcohol, malts, and dark fruits. The flavor is more of the same and I have aged the bottle for 3 years so it may have mellowed the flavor.

Bottle. Dark brown with a medium head. Lovely malty flavour. Nothing too complex just a pleasant reasonably strong beer.

adster (804) - HUNGARY - JAN 30, 2017
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.
