Maakun (4493) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2016
Bottle at home. Very dark brown with light brown head. Coffee, dates, raisins, dried plums, roasted malts, caramel, light spices, ash, some vegetables and cardboard in the finish. Light sweet and under medium bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Surprisingly decent, maybe its because this is two months past the best before date, but apart from the finish I think its quite drinkable.

Deze fles moest er ook maar eens aan geloven. Weinig spannends, zwaar en donker. Backlog from 2015/01/16.

MrHangover (4190) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle. Pours a deep dark brown beer with a very small off white head on top. Aroma is dark fruits, touches of coffee, licorice and quite malty. Flavor is very sweet, malty and sugary with molasses in the back. Slight bittersweet finish, low carbonation. Decent at best, but really not much cool going on here.

Borresteijn (6638) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 29, 2014
30cl Bottle from Winterbierfestival. Bottle from last year, ABV is 8%. Dark brown with a red hue, off-white head. Aroma of grain, bready malts, dark fruits, caramel, lager-like notes, chocolate, smells like a dunkler bock. Flavour is medium-sweet, malty, a little oxidized, dark fruits, chocolate, bread, bitter malty finish. Medium-bodied at best. Very German feel to it.

dutchbeerpages (2336) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2013
dark/red appearance. Flavor gets a little better as it warms up. It is a nice warming drink. Caramel is nice, also some iron, maybe even liver. On the watery side, which is disappointing. Bottle from a Jumbo supermarket at the Wilhelminakade in Groningen.

Douberd (5180) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 23, 2013
Bottle, 300 ml, poured into a tulip glass at home. ABV 9% Pours a deep mahogany brown coloured beer, with nice deep ruby shades when hold against the light. Small head but thick enough, average retention and light lacing left behind. Aroma is very sweet with lots of prunes and tons of malts, lighty roasted. It reminds me of those malt nutritious beverages, only much more heavy and sweet. Taste follows, very very sweet, all malty, molasses. Not sickenly or artificial sweet but not something Im looking for in a beer. Very thick body, sticky palate. Overall, weel, not my favourite one. If it wasnt for the alcohol, and more as a warming feeling rather than notable on the taste, it could pass as an malt energy drink or as those non alcohol beers for kids. Saved by appearance and mouthfeel.
