2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
dark amber, brownish with a small head that disappears. smell is alcohol, sugar, apple. taste is dominantly strong toffee that turns saccharine. a lot of alcohol and candy, surprisingly hoppy herbal taste. mild yeast character-fresh,springy(?). palate is creamy but moderate. something so one dimensional i wont get again.
I bought this bottle in the boissons center,at Montagny. I drank it yesterday with my wife during a night of storm. In my point of view, it is an average beer, generally I prefer the grimbergen than the leffe. The body is brown and troubled, thin head, average carbonation. It is a classical dubbel, for a macrobrewery, this one is ok, easy to drink, light, going well for these days. The taste is malty, bready, some touch of apricot, a bit watery, some hop, I could say relatively sweet. vinivini (2264) - Gomel, BELARUS - JUN 27, 2017
Tap. Misty chestnut brown with moderate creamy head. Huge dried fruit on nose. Also caramel, toast and yeast. Medium body. Light sweet taste. Very fruity. Solid dark malts. Light bitterness. This one does not reach the highest style standards. Yet it is pretty good. NiklasT (33) - SWEDEN - JUN 26, 2017

Bottle pour into shaker pint glass from Greg & Jane’s Beer & Wine. Appearance is clear, dark red with tons of sparkle, 2-finger width creamy beige head with excellent retention and sudsy lacing. Aroma is caramel malts, earth, plums. Taste is as aroma. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with creamy texture, soft carbonation and finish as taste.

Ámbar oscuro, buena retención de espuma, aroma alohólico carameloso, sabor a caramelo, notas a cafe, chocolate, nuez y alcohol. Bastante compleja y agradable para ser de Heineken... Shark_Pants (737) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 7, 2017
330ml bottle BB 19 Feb 2018. Clear ruby colour with creamy tan head. Lots of raisins and sark fruits in the aroma, toffee. The taste has toffee, dates, raisins, plums, cherries, belgian yeast character. Medium to full bodied, nice high carbonation and noticeable acidity help provide some balance. Quite a good dubbel. hallinghansen (3126) - Odense SV, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2017
