KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - OCT 28, 2012
11.2oz Bottle. The pour was a muddy dark brown with a nice reddish hue around the edges and an average (1-2 finger) tan creamy head that had great retention pretty much lasting throughout, thus creating some excellent sheets of sticky lacing. The aroma starts with a roasted sweet bread malt and moves on with an earthy somewhat leathery yeast. In the back ground I sensed notes of milk chocolate, molasses, brown sugar, some dark fruit (raisons and figs), a hint of smoke and a mild winey alcohol presence. The taste started with a nice malty sweetness and had hints of chocolate and brown sugar, progressing with a good bit of dark fruit and a slight alcohol finish. The flavor had a decent duration following the swallow with a sweet fruity taste fading as a mild creamy chocolate alcohol flavor settled on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was a strong medium in body with an extremely smooth and creamy texture and an almost flat carbonation. Overall this was an exquisite tasting brew, one that possessed a nice sweet malty taste with a really intense creamy feel. This hid the moderately high ABV extremely well and made a pleasure to consume...

330 ml bottle. Hazy dark brown in the glass, ruby around the edges, off-white head. Sweet malty aroma of dried fruit, dried plum, faint toast. Taste is complex malt, dried fruit, red fruit, dried plum, raisins. Moderately sweet, rather low bitterness. Medium to full body, moderately thick texture, average carbonation.

Aroma of acedelythate with notes of dark fruit and faint roastiness of the malts. Dark brown in the glass with frothy head. Taste of fruit, especially dark and red with tartness of vinegar. Bit of coffee cherries in the background. Good, but Ive expected more.

Het bier is bruin met een rode gloed. Een bruine schuimkraag. Het heeft een lekkere geroosterde nasmaak.

Pour deep brown with some red hues. 3 finger off white head that sticks to the glass with nice lacing. Aroma is candy sugar, plum fruits, malts, coffee and chocolate. Flavor was most of the same. Medium body and carbonation for the style. Pretty good stuff from Corsendonk

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2016 Mrkrd med tjockt beige skumkrona. Luktar fruktigt, lite pepprigt och brnd farinsocker. Smaken hyggligt fyllig, lite t svagdricka. Eftersmaken ganska tunn, lite maltstma. Ganska mkt kolsyra som dock frsvinner snabbt.

Aroma floral y afrutado. En boca el primer amago es un intento por salir a relucir el caramelo, frutos negros y especias, pero pronto la acidez y el caf torrefacto se apoderan del conjunto. A m personalmente me agrada mucho ms una Dubbel ms caramelizada y amable.
