Hertog Jan Dubbel is een traditioneel bier van hoge gisting. In de brouwerij spreken we van een degustatiebier. Dit betekent dat Hertog Jan Dubbel het waard is om met al uw zintuigen geproefd te worden. Waardoor u het in al zijn facetten leert kennen. Eerst schenkt u het uit in een glas en bewondert u het schuim en de fraaie roodbruine kleur. Vervolgens ruikt u het volle zachte aroma. U neemt een slok en proeft het rijk moutige karakter. En tenslotte geniet u van de iets zoete afdronk.

Hansen (8543) - Assentoft, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2006
A dubbel with lot of acidity. Something like touch of lambic, perhaps. Dark amber colour. Creamy, light-brown head, mostly lasting. Aroma has sulfur and horseblanket, roasted, burnt. Medium to full body.

Stefano (2000) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 1, 2006
Dark ruby, good brown head. A bit lemony, brown sugar in the aroma. Sweet and pretty full malt, chocolate and toffee flavor with some fruity tones hiding underneath. Tasty and easy drinkable, but quite harmless.

30 cl bottle from a friend in Holland.
Labeled 7.3%.
Clear dark ruby red color, huge tan head. Chocolate smooth scent with a touch of burnt malt. Lots of chocolate and some raisin taste, some acid as well. Full mouthfeel. Sweet aftertaste. Low bitterness. Turns shady once the yeast sediment is poured in. You dont feel the 7.3% in it at all. It was best before this summer, so the raisin and slight Madeira might come from ageing.

Bottle - ceramic, at WBC Denver, April 11 2014.
Clear dark brown color, big teal head. Sweet, malty, light phenolic scent. Sweet, light metallic, phenolic (a bit) taste. Sweet, apple aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - NOV 22, 2006
A bottle tasted at home, bought from brewery. Liqourice comes to mind, quite sweet, raisins. Dark and burnt. A bit metallic feel from the liqourice. Have to taste this one again.

Stew41 (1966) - Phuket, THAILAND - NOV 8, 2006
(BB July 2007) Strange beer. Promissed the world in terms of power and oomph but lacked intensity by any measure. Pours ok medium strength dirty white head. Brown dark cherry in colour. Benign nose with faint malts unremarkable. Palate is also in the also-ran class with faintly fruity malts, some darker malts in the background, a bit of fizz. Cant really see the 9.5%.

JorisPPattyn (9827) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 10, 2006
Small yellow-brown head, fast gone over nearly black beer. Old books, vanilla, bit of licorice and mint, and generally a bit sweetish. Thinnish flavour with foremost licorice and/or drop taste, like childrens japthee (made from licoricesweets). A tad roasty, but whereas the nose had something reminiscent of mint, here Id say chewing gum - sorbitol sweetened as Oakes shrewdly remarked. Bit cola-like finish. Thin, thin, thin and artificially sweetened and upped. Its called Dubbel, I know. But a dubbel from this abbey is a VERY Dutch dubbel, indeed. Zuinigjes an!

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - SEP 28, 2006
30 cl bottle. Yeast at the bottom. Reddish brown colour with a nice creamy head. Very nice aroma of sweetness, little sour, roastedness and some chocolate. Very tasty flavour of sweet roastedness, brown sugar, dried fruit and hints of chocolate. Ends up light with a sweet yeasty finish.
