330ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co. Wine & Beer (£4.20):jjsint (3789) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2018
An outstanding offering from De Dolle, this one is easily the best of the three beers that I've tried from the brewery so far & one that was a complex but balanced tasting beer, opening with a lot of dark fruits & sweetness but never overpowering. It was easy to drink despite the strong alcohol content & there was some nice caramel malts further on that alongside the lighter fruits kept things interesting from the start. A great beer that I'll definitely be on the look out for again.
Bottle from Best One, Bedford. Reddish brown, hazy with a khaki head. Smells of dates, oak, forest floor, medicinal herbs. Sweet taste at first, but when that clears it's got an earthy sour tang. More stone fruit and dusty hop in the finish and aftertaste. Full, oily body. Low carbonation. It's really odd, I want to like it more than I do but I can't really get into it.

Slightly vinous, malty aroma. Taste is medicinal, dark fruity. Too much medicine.

Molto buona ricca di sapore...tra le migliori che io abbia provato. Consiglio. brandy cools (44) - antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 3, 2018
Interesting aroma. the malts are definately there, something of liquor and candi-sugar in the back and forest herbs as well as something of red fruit .
A nice very dark reddish color, and a lot of foam that lasts. the taste has much of the malts again. I sense liquor again but less of the candi-sugar here. Also the fruit and the herbs again. there 's a malty bitterness that reminds me of very dark chocolate and espresso. And there is sour in the back as from fruit, red fruit like berries or something. When the beer gets a bit more of warmth i notice the chocolaty or espresso like bitternes also in the aroma. the bitterness in the taste lasts long time in a bit wry but not unpleasant way. I like this beer well, not as much as the "Stille Nacht" -beer of the same brewery but close enough. The "Dolle Brouwers" tend to make beer a different experience, something away from the other stuff out there. Maybe not anybody's thing but i'm certaintly in for it.

, Tampere, Finland. Strong, soft nuances of dark fruits like plum and fig, toffee. Some dark sugar. Earthy and a bit funky feeling. Some boozy aromas. Balanced. Wide/medium taste spectrum and medium/short aftertaste with slightly sour dark fruits. Overall, reference quality with soft touch. A bit sterile and non distictive character though. 8 4 7 5 16
The murky, mahogany hues ale pours with so much frothy foam it spills out a tulip glass. Aroma is yeasty and funky. The flavor is malty, syrupy and heavy. Notes of brown sugar and coffee. Finish is particularly long and nuanced, nutty and boozy, yet rounded by the aging. An exceptional traditional abbey style. Cheers DD Brouwers!
