3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours slightly hazy russet to coppery brown with a full creamy coloured head that sank slowly into the glass. I love a dubbel and hope this lives up to my expectations of full cocoa, malt and butter aroams. It is alittle lighter than expected, but no less satisfying. It also carries a touch of licorice, molasses and pumpernickel. The mouthfeel is of full carbonation and then it gives way to flavours of chocolate biscuits, cola and dusty Dutch biscuits. It is dry to the finish but leaves with a gorgeous reminiscence.
It also leaves me a happy man.
F: huge, bit tanned, long lasting.
C: dark brown, red bit hazy against the light.
A: malty, red fruits, cherries, bit chocolate, brown sugar, burned herbs.
T: malty, sour cherries, red fruits, chocolate, bit caramel, bit yeasty, medium body and carbonation, Dubbel as many other here in Belgium, nothing special, 33cl bottle from Prik & Tik Leuven.

Tasted at cellar temperature. Poors caramel reddish brown with moccha head. Aroma rather faint butterscotch, caramel. Taste more pronounced and distinctly caramel, some butterscotch, hints of dark fruits, rather one-dimentional but not bad. After a while stronger tasting, bitter, roasted malts become noticable, not particularly tasty though. vsyrbu (141) - MOLDOVA - JUN 30, 2017
The color of strong tea with a long milky cappuccino foam . In the aroma fruits and caramel. The taste is caramelized with plum and some other ripe fruits. The aftertaste is watery and a bit bitter with warming alcohol. Tide (4336) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 17, 2017

A step up compared to the blond one, deeper and way more interesting. Rather light for a dubbel, far from my favorite ones, but not a bad thing. Alcohol is well hidden, some caramel aroma and spices. Very pleasant, I still prefer the Prior and Abt ones but not to be overlooked. APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW! kostasgiotis (124) - GREECE - DEC 7, 2016
Deep red body with a two finger tanned head. Doesn’t smell much, mainly caramel,earth notes.The body is light which is a surprise.Tastes caramel,spice and earth. Not a nice one YigSvartka (449) - Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 17, 2016
Opaque copper brown hue with mid sized beige head consisting of good retention. Blast. Unfortunately smells rather akin to stale cardboard. Vast breadth of body not unlike dough. Delectable taste which is bizarre given the terribly unimpressive aroma. Caramel, slight roast, dried fruit, fall spices and vanilla with a sweet/malty finish that coalesces with a wee bit of hop. Pleasant. bonkiedeaap (814) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 24, 2016
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel, Belgium. The beer is dark brown colored and has a large and stable cream colored head, with livingly CO2.
The aroma is malty and fruity, with notes of roasted malts, yeast, dark fruits, caramel and spices.
The taste is sweet and malty, with tones of caramel, dark fruits, raisins and the spices gives it a pleasant bitterness near the end.
The finish is a little alcohol, light bitter and dry.
Very nice dubbel. Peter_L (1428) - SWEDEN - JUL 16, 2016
