corkyrory66 (2549) - BELGIUM - MAR 4, 2018
Double de 7 % abv, avec sirop de glucose (?), extrait de houblon (?), au format ridicule de 25 cl. Mon exemplaire était à 14 mois avant sa date. Couleur caramel brûlé avec une touche d'auburn, artificielle, à la clarté pure. Bulles moyennes, peu nombreuses. Mousse à fins flocons, stable à 2 mm. Arômes de miel de base, prune, pointe d'airelle. 1ère bouche souple, à l'entame caramel, cassonade, et malt cara. Arrière-bouche encore plus anodine. 2ème qui ne touche aucunement au domaine d'une double, pour évoquer seulement la limonade. Arrière-bouche vague, imprécise. 3ème qui ne donne aucune nuance vraie. Arrière-bouche aqueuse, industrielle. Longueur qui affadit encore un peu plus (si c'était possible), ce produit de pure anecdote. Jambes à flocons moyens, courtes. Levure industrielle. Alcool banalissime, sans aucune efficacité sur les saveurs. Finale navrante (je suis gentil ..). CONCLUSION : bière qui ne propose rien, et surtout pas la "grande tradition" que le brasseur ose évoquer … Sauf pour les ciney-philes … (un vrai navet).

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2018 Tap @ IJkantine, Amsterdam. Eerste reactie: kruising tussen Palm voor uiterlijk en trippel betreft de smaak. Zoet rijk van smaak. Mooie helder amber kleurig biertje. Kruidig biertje maar niet te kruidig , licht gebrand met oa smaak van caramel. Maar ook een zuurtje die je zowel in de smaak als de geur terug vindt. Maar eigenlijk net te zuur. Aardige dubbel maar net ff te zuur.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2018 (brune un peu décevante, sans caractère, arrière-goût haribo, colorant de caramel)

19Oracolo78 (244) - ITALY - DEC 23, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2017 Birra dal colore ambrato/marrone. Schiuma nocciola fine e persistente. Al naso caramello e toffee. Al palato media carbonatazione con note già percepite al naso. Birra un po stucchevole, berla non dispiace ma niente di eclatante.

nathanvc (921) - Brugge, BELGIUM - NOV 11, 2017
Pours hazy brown with a lasting, short, tan head. The aroma contains caramel, nuts, syrup, some red fruits, biscuit, hops, (light roasted) malt and milk chocolate. It tastes medium to heavy sugary/malty sweet and only light hoppy bitter with a slightly metallic edge. Medium body, sticky/slick texture, fizzy carbonation. Secretly liking this.

From bottle. Transfer of an earlier rating without text recorded, rating only.

argaar (1) - Cerveteri, ITALY - OCT 7, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2017 Good color, medium/dark red. not to much aroma maybe due to the serving temp too much cold. Decent taste sweet, and medium light body. not the best dubbel/doppelbock I've drank but a good one after all

cervmagpt (963) - PORTUGAL - AUG 25, 2017
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 26B). Bottle 33 cl - Batch B62222116 (BBF 05-02-18). AROMA: medium bread crust aroma, mixed with slight perfumy notes. faint toffee and raisins. APPEARANCE: dark reddish amabar color and clear. medium ivory head with medium retention. lace formation. TASTE: medium malty-sweet bread crust flavor, mixed with medium-low to low toffee and dried grapes. low bitterness with a semi-dry finish that continues to dry out. faint cardboard note. PALATE: medium body with medium-low carbonation. smooth with no alcohol warmth. OVERALL: a good belgian dubbel with a lot of its main characteristics.

Eructoblaster (4549) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2017
Bottle - 250ml. Brown body with ruby glints and an average, off-white foamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with brown sugar, caramel, and fruity hints. Its well balanced malty/hoppy taste carries caramel and some woody notes. Ends with a moderately warming, bittersweet finish. Enjoyable.

Singularity (6433) - Blattniksele, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2017
250 ml bottle in Brussels, from the bottle. Aroma and taste are sweet, malty, sugary, slight hay and yeast. Slight alcohol.
