GoufCustom (2354) - HONG KONG - MAR 14, 2018

330ml bottle at abv 6.5% bought at HKBWEX in Mong Kok.

Looks: Clear ruby brown with a thin layer of dirt-like yeast particlesThree finger head with crumpety light beige foam which lasts for 3 minutes; Beautiful sticky lacing with fizzy carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant dark malt, with strong raisins, strong plums, sweet caramel, toffee, Cola, floral, sugar, cinnamon, strong spices, bread, strong Bel yeast and grass. Very dynamic!

Taste: Medium sweet dark malt, with strong metallic, strong tartness, strong raisins and plum, strong caramel, toffee, Sarsae, Cola, floral, brown sugar, spices, biscuits, Bel yeast, lemon, mid to strong bitter hops and strong grass. Very nice!

Body: Mid to full body. Slick and quite creamy palate.

Mouth Feel: Very good dark maltyness in a solid background. Well attenuated, with loads of dark fruity goodness in strong raisins and plums, backed by poppy Sarsae, strong spice, and medium sweetness. Very Bel-yeasty with strong grass and lemon to round. So rich and favorable!

Hoppiness: Floral, cinnamon, spices, and grass in nose. Strong spices, floral, lemon, and strong grass in taste; Bitterness is quite strong for a lasting, close to high astringent sweet-bitter dark malty finish.

After Taste: Slightly dry. Poppy spicy and quite bitter to mouth.

Comments: Its head and looks is impressive, good start. What is surprising is the strong taste match blow by blow with the aroma - Cola Sarsae spicyness thanks to the fine Bel yeast and expressive hoppiness, no often felt in Dubbels. Great stuff!

Very deep copper red / dark brown appearance. Medium head. Quite subtle yeasty aroma. Lovely on the tongue -slit fizz to it. Medium body. Nice balance to the taste - primarily sweet but a good bitter balance. Musty fruit cake taste. Good.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2018 Quite tasty. Nice body and suited for winter, or as the case would be now, a humid night just as spring is breaking Bottle. Wilrijk, BE.

adamnowek (3699) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 27, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2018 Dark brown. Super dense, off-white head. Aroma is brown sugar and malt. Taste is sickeningly sweet caramel. Yikes.

DraftAromas7 (72) - SERBIA - FEB 22, 2018
Bottle. Dark brown with a lot of foam. Nose is raisin, date, leather and caramel. Taste is brown bread. Good beer.

malibrat (261) - Pula, CROATIA - FEB 17, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Mislim da svako ko je probao njihov 'Agnus' zaista poslje ovog ostane razočaran. Aroma je pristojna ali od 'Dubelovštine' ništa ! Vrlo slabi okus i 'posljeokus'

charlotte (5522) - rødovre, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2018
Bottle.Dark brown colour with off beige head.Aroma of toffee caramel yeast,hops and malt,lively and sweet with note of dried fruits, and herbs,medium body and high carbonation.

DraftDodger (1895) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2018
Copenhagen 10/2 2018. 75 cl bottle from Meny. Comes in a big metalbox filled with hay and wrapped in paper. The symbol of the Priory of Corsendonk printed directly on the bottle even though it today is rebuilt as a hotel. The version I am drinking has an ABV of 6,5. Pours slightly hazy, dark brown with red hue and big dense off-white head. Settles as 0,5 cm thick layer of dense foam. Moderate lacing. Aroma is strong and sweet with a bitter undercurrent. Caramel, brown sugar, light roastiness, unripe berries providing lightly acidic bitterness. Medium carbonation providing prickly mouthfeel. Surprisingly thin palate. Flavor is nicely balanced. Medium sweetness followed by medium bitterness. Aftertaste is bitter with hints of nuts and caramel. Pretty light and not too sweet Dubbel.
