Bottle 33cl. Dark brown with a ruby glow. Off white head. Aroma of fruit and malts. The taste is nothing as expected. It starts mildly bitter and develops into a frenzy of fruits, spices and bitterness. The aftertaste leaves a glow of alcohol. Bornyensis (321) - BELGIUM - DEC 10, 2015
Nogal een zware smaak voor een dubbel, de kleur zit goed: donkerbruin, voldoende schuimkraag. sjogro (4755) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2015
Lekkere bruisende dubbel met beetje kauwgomballen zoetheid. Backlog from 2015/01/31. Patjeadam (158) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 25, 2015
A little sour in the nose. First sip shows the rich malts, some dried red fruits, a little sugar, some hidden spices and a very nice little bitter aftertaste. It has not that much carbonization and it is a little sticky. Very well done dubbel.

Bottle from Damian. Quite good beer executed true to style. Lightly hazy brown colour and a soft head with moderate duration. Rich malty character with dried fruits and caramel flavours, only subtle yeasty spiciness and bitterness in the background. Balanced and relatively easy drinking for a 7,5% ABV beer. Alcohol hidden well.

Bottle. Murky light brown body, small head for the style. Weak aroma, mostly raisins and light cocoa. Quite watery mouthfeel and as a result of this neglect the 7,5% ABV comes sharply through. Taste has some more raisins and cocoa but the body is really light and unbalanced. Dry finish with cocoa powder and alcohol. This is clearly a below average Dubbel. Could have been more reasonable with the "reported" 6,5% ABV. Yves (3134) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - OCT 25, 2015
