3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tried on draft in unfiltered version at the brwery. looks like a dark ale should, lovely sulphur cream head. Begian character to the smell, along with red berries, malt, caramel. Very smooth malty fruit flavour with red winegums, just right balance of sweetness, very satisfying and drinkeable. No aftertaste I can remember. Not as memorable a beer as the blonde.
At Delaney’s, Bruges. On International Beer Day (August 4). Pours hazy brown with a lasting, small, tan head. The aroma contains roasted malt, dark chocolate, licorice, dark fruits, caramel, a bit of iron. It tastes medium sweet and light bitter with a light sweet finish. Medium body, slick, bit sticky texture, fizzy carbonation. Nothing special, but passed the minimal expectations. I prefer it over the blonde brother. cinjos (1) - - JUL 18, 2017 does not count

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2017 Bottle at Town Crier. Warm lightly reddish brown with off white head. Aromas of brown sugar, caramel, plums, but rather faint. Tastes of caramel, plum skin, some toffee, malt. More bitter than expected. Highly carbonated. A decent dubbel. This is the beer that gave me the jester bottlecap. davidf93 (143) - Stellenbosch, SOUTH AFRICA - JUN 6, 2017

330ml bottle from the Elm Tree, Cambridge. Reddish brown, very translucent. A smooth khaki head sits cheekily on top. Black cherry and chestnut dominate the aroma, with suggestions of dark chocolate and Chambord. Sweet taste with cherry notes. Very fruity with a nutty yeasty flavour. A bit of tartness in the finish. Perfect carbonation. A joy to drink.
