Interesting beer. It’s hard to categorize when one tries to base the description off from the beer’s stated style. I found it to be mostly a dunkel in both overall taste and body. This was followed by a dry and, almost, sour finish. This distinct finish becomes less noticeable mid way through the second glass. Not bad.

19Oracolo78 (158) - ITALY - MAR 9, 2017
Birra dal colore ambrato. Schouma bianco sporco, fine e moderatamebte persistente. All’ olfatto sentori di malto tostato, caffè e spezie. Al palato corpo leggero con note di toffe, malto tostato, cioccolato amaro e caffè. Nel finale poco amara. Una birra beverina che si può abbinare con carne, formaggi ma anvhe con crostate. Scende giù molto bene. Ma gli manca qualcosa, forse un po’ piatta e per certi tratti anche troppo stucchevole.

Acaro (69) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 8, 2017
Aroma: Toast caramel notes Appearance: Dark brown color with hazy liquid and light tan head. Taste: Medium sweet notes with light bitter touches. Palate: Medium body with oily texture and soft carbonation. Long bitter sweet finish. Overall: Nice beer. After this one I will have to try the triple. This one has been over the average of its kind.

Helsdon (371) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 26, 2017
Classic dubbel look. Roasted malty nose and yeast bite. Tasted caramel malt, nice yeast, mild sweetness, slight dried fruit. Good beer. Not my favourite dubbel but a good choice all the same.
