Dark rust. Persistent custardlike froth dots the glass with some lace. Exquisite aromas of black tea, anise, toasted bread, red currants, anise, date sugar, ripe plum, banana bread, rock candy, spice cake, flowery hops, etc. Secondary notes of gum, concord grape and puttylike yeast. Somewhat spicily phenolic, as well. Expansive, softly prickly carbonation. Airy and fiercely spicy with immediate clove warmth and alcohol. Immensely luscious, multilayered malt soon takes foothold as it offers up a deep spice cookie and plummy brightness along with fresh baked banana bread and an earthy breadcrust contrast. Considerable residuals from the candy sugar, though there is plenty of underlying gummy, yeasty luster and fruity esters to thwart any cola-like character from encroaching. Otherwise the sugar purely dazzles with malt-enhancing sweetness. High attenuation and exceptionally clean malt makes for endless quaffability. Telltale lilac-drenched Styrians add to the appetizing nature as they assertively deliver a lip-smacking wallop. Dried fruit twang imparts the faintest bit of flabbiness, but stops shy of overexertion thanks to the ongoing firm maltiness. Closes dryly malty, firmly cookielike and phenolic with an equilibrium of caramelized raisin and sassy clove accompanied by a tardy flourish of bright floral hop burps. Aside from the minor flabbiness, this is a quality dubbel all-around.

Colore ambrato chiaro, schiuma abbondante compatta e persistente, al naso malto, lieviti, nocciola, caramello, sapori di albicocca, nocciole e note di frutta secca. Corpo medio, birra secca con finale leggermente amaro ma non luppolato, più una dubbel che una strong ale, in ogni caso una birra estremamente piacevole. CofradiaMCarlosV (43) - SPAIN - APR 3, 2017

Bottle. Quite clear reddish amber body with a big tan head. A bit weak in aroma, mild malt and spices. Flavor has more complexity, sweet malt, toast, spices, Belgium yeast, slightly fruity and moderate bitterness, alcohol is well hidden. Fine balanced body and nice aftertaste. Very nice. TEJA (3199) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 6, 2017
Bottle shared by Björn thanks. Big and semi lasting off white head. Light clowdy copper color. Very fresh and fruity aroma. Equally fresh and fruity taste with a dry and crisp taste. Low bitterness and mild Belgian taste.
