The Etruscan (704) - Tuscany, ITALY - AUG 16, 2013
Tasted at Huisbrouwerij De Halve Maan in Bruges. Dark beige head. Reddish brown colour. Aroma is malty with fruity (peach) and light roasty tones. Flavor is malty too with light fruity (banana), vanilla and chewing gum tones, ending in a moderately hoppy finish. Light to medium bodied. jgb9348 (6482) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Copper coloured body with an amber glow and a thinnish, one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of nuts, raisins, earth, malt and a bit of caramelised sugars. Medium-bodied; Nice strong malt flavours throughout with a bunch of pecans and walnuts, some light hops, a touch of caster sugar and a bit of alcohol also noticeable. Aftertaste is fairly light with the sugars and a touch of the malt showing through. Nothing bitter or offensive at all, and another nice beer - nothing special here, just a solid dubbel! I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from de Bier Temepl in Bruges, Belgium on 14-August-2013 for €1,69 sampled in my hotel room here in Gent, Belgium on 16-August-2013.
