UPDATED: NOV 11, 2014 Bruin caramelkleurig bier met rokerig en houtig aroma. Lekkere smaken van toffee, caramel, pruimen en donker fruit. Beetje eiken, licht rokerige smaak met lekkere warme afdronk. Topbiertje.

Okay, this is serious now. I enjoyed all the other Kapittel beers before this one, but were getting close to what Id really recommend with this one. Interesting abv, pretty good taste, deeper and more bitterness than the Dubbel one, way closer to a really good Abbey beer in my opinion. Not a big step up, but rather a logical evolution... Quite lovely, but not yet on par with the Abt one. APPROVED BY TAVERNYS BLACK METAL CREW!

Dit bier heeft bittere en zoete kanten. Gebrande mout en karamel overheersen. Verder wat fruit. Prima.

Rune (12071) - Troms, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2017
Bottle at Kings Head in Norwich, shared with friends. Solid foamy off-white head to a clear golden-brown body. Sweet aromas of caramel and dried fruits. Flavours of bread, dried fruits and candy sweet brown malts. The berry fruits at the ending keep all the sweetness at bay. Warming and nice (18.02.2017).

Nevalainen (710) - FINLAND - FEB 25, 2017
Hazy amber color with stable beige, creamy head. Aroma of caramel, sugar. Taste is medium sweet with notes of dark fruits. Alcohol is coming a bit through, but what can you expect from 9%. Nice and full body. Pretty good one.

Beertobealive (576) - Courbevoie, FRANCE - FEB 19, 2017
Pours a brown head with cinnamon and ginger aromas. Amber to brown colored body. Some Metallic taste in mouth. Alcohol is well balanced but lacks thickness and length for a great dubbel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Vignale (3641) - Malm, SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2017
Flaska frn Belgiuminabox. Gyllenbrun vtska, klar men med bottensediment. St doft av kandisocker, torkad frukt och st mrkt brd. Lite abt-liknande kvaliter med dina sta fruktiga och brdiga smaker med vlintegrerad stma och alkohol som vrmer fint. Riktigt trevlig utan att n hela vgen.
