Inoven (746) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JAN 27, 2017
Flesje meegenomen van weekend Zeeland. Diep donkerbruin helder bier met weinig schuim. Aroma van caramel en fruit. De smaak is zoet, caramelachtig en fruitig (pruimen, druiven). Weinig nasmaak. FrankZappa7 (511) - GERMANY - NOV 8, 2016

Pours a dark colour. Thin and watery, quite sweet and not that great. Tasted at Bierreclame Museum Breda 21/08/2016 sjorsvdg (538) - NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2016
Een heerlijke dubbel, met een aroma van gist en kandijsuiker en honing. In het smaakpalet komen deze zaken ook terug, evenals geroosterd brood, pruimen en een diepe karamelsmaak.
Hier nog genaamd ’Zeeuws Dubbel’. Leighton (21255) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2016
Bottle shared at the 2015 edition of the chriso Pre-GBBF tasting - London. Cheers! Pours clear brown with lots of particulates and a creamy, off-white head. Plummy fruits in the aroma, brown bread. Medium sweet flavour with ripe and jammy fruits, bready malts. Medium bodied with average to lively carbonation. Sweet finish, with low bitterness, dried fruits, plums, berries. Not bad.

Bottle share at Chriso’s. 6.5%. Not dated. Dark orange, still, small foamy tan head. Aroma is floral, pear, a touch estery. Body is medium to light, low carbonation, pretty foamy. Taste is malty, toffee-ish with a light sourness. Definitely has some strange characteristics. Alright. tricksta_p (4654) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - SEP 10, 2015
Bottle at De Markies, Leeuwarden. Aroma of malt, bread, caramel, toffee, nuts, candy, sweet dark fruits. Flavour is rather sugary sweet. Body is medium to full. This beer has got the aroma and full body down, but is ruined by a massive sugary sweetness. Alengrin (5369) - BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2015 Dutch dubbel which, according to the brewery, is supposed to be the modern equivalent of a 19th-century "Hulster Monnikenbier", but in reality is an alias of Dobbele Java / XX Dubbel, a beer I drank regularly in Hulst many years ago. Comes from a stubby swingtop bottle, sold at the Albert Heijn supermarket in Hulst. Densely lacing, creamy, pale yellowish beige head with sufficient retention; colour is a cloudy brownish burgundy. Sweet and estery aroma of banana, brown candi sugar, milk chocolate, overripe peach, candied dates, toasted bread, medlar, sweet liquorice, caramel, coriander. Fruity taste, sweet but not too cloying, raisins, banana, blue plums, soft carbo, fluffy and smooth mouthfeel, nice bready and caramelly malt sweetness with spicy yeastiness on top, becoming a tad toasted in the end, full, with a herbal, peppery hop bitterness for balance, bittersweet resiny coriander and lingering yeastiness. Rather stereotypical for the style, but well rounded and nicely balanced, with a pleasant spicy hoppiness to it. Scopey (14730) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2015
Bottle at Pre-GBBF Shindig 2015. It pours hazy mahogany brown with a small beige head. The nose is soft, sweet, toasty, toffee and caramel. The taste is soft, sweet, malt-drive, toasty, cocoa and spice with a short, dryish finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Perhaps a touch old? Not much depth to it, but easy-going enough. rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2015
Bottle at Chris and Ruth’s Shindig 2015. Clear amber beer with a small offwhite head. Malty caramel aroma and flavor. A bit old...
