ghawener's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
ghawener (1615) - Santa Tecla, - APR 3, 2005
Bottle: Dark red brown with a foamy head that quickly disappears. Bitter chocolate, malty, sweet smells. Taste is bittersweet with notes of dark fruits and noticeable traces of it’s 7% alcohol content. From mid bottle on the taste is much lighter and less complex. I prefer the blonde Ciney.

19Oracolo78 (237) - 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 (796) - 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.

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 (932) - 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 (4454) - 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 (6369) - 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.

Syfher (511) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 22, 2017
Bottle of 25cl, in a Ciney glass; from the fridge. Very refreshing brown ale, with a candi sugar taste but without too much sweetness. Aroma is malty and not so hoppy. The head is creamy brown, and the colour is deep brown.

Ysok02 (1913) - Mons, BELGIUM - MAR 21, 2017
Robe brune, fine mousse. Nez assez simple sur le chocolat, le malt, pointe de houblon. Bouche à l’attaque aqueuse, légère note torréfie, bulle discrète, finale courte. Bière sans grand intérêt.

Thompson (713) - - OCT 5, 2016
Bottle shared with Benzai a long time ago at Cafe Buitenlust, Oirschot. Brown colo...off-white head. Smell and taste are malty...sweetness...caramel and notes of dark fruit.
