Bottle 33cl. Cloudy deep brown, small but stable frothy light tan head, thin yeasty layer remains, fair lacing; sweet malty nose, roasted, brown sugar, chocolate, caramel, cinnamon; taste heavy to medium sweet, light bitter, roasted; medium body, oily texture, bit sharp mouthfeel, soft carbonation, aftertste medium bittersweet, spicy touch; all in all a decent dubbel. Alengrin (5334) - BELGIUM - SEP 14, 2014
Resurrection of an old-fashioned dubbel that had been ’extinct’ for a long time. Light beige, creamy but thin head, deep brownish burgundy colour, very dark but still transparent and clear. Sweet and malty aroma, chocolate, port wine, pear, cinnamon, walnuts, grass, black pepper. Sweet candied fruits in the mouth, pretty sharp carbo for this style, caramelly, nutty and chocolatey malts, light spicy hints, pleasant and well-balanced with a gentle herbal and lightly peppery hop bitterishness in the finish. Stereotypical but tasty and well made.

Hazy dark amber with fine head and a lot of yest inside. Nose is raisins and plums. Taste is sweet. Fruity palate with too sweet tones. [email protected]
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Red-amber pour with a white head. The aroma is full of toffee, sugar and dark fruit. The flavor is also fruity. I get some cherries and grapes as well as some brown sugar, toffee and caramel. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. thewolf (12590) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle, bought @ De Hopduvel, Gent. Pours light hazy red with a large, fizzy, off-white head. Aroma has caramel, yeast, light toasted, mild metallic. Medium carbonation, fine dry and fairly light mouthfeel. Flavour has caramel, toasted, toffee, raisins, soft roasted. Good malty bitterness. Sadly the carbonation is a bit excessive.
