Bottle @ home. Birra marrone con riflessi rubino, leggermente velata con schiuma beige non molto fine , ma piuttosto persistente. Aroma intenso, fruttato, di fave di cacao, frutta rossa disidratata (ribes/amarene), tostata, sui toni della liquirizia e del cacao amaro. Poco caffè. Alcool e caramello sono presenti. Gusto abboccato, poco amaro, quasi solo da tostatura, poco luppolata, cacao, frutti rossi caramello e dolcezza alcolica sono i gusti principali. Retrolfattivo di liquirizia.Leggerissima acidità. Poco corposa, poco carbonata, molto rotonda, calda. Equilibrata ed armonica. Alengrin (5722) - BELGIUM - AUG 26, 2014
Scotch-style Belgian rather than a dubbel, with creamy, regular, beige, stable head and very dark brown colour with wine-red hue, hazy. Sweet fruitiness, banana, candied cherries, apple sauce, chocolate, brown bread, buttermilk, candi sugar, liquorice, cloves all suffering under an unpleasant DMS odour of cooked cauliflower. Malty, bready taste, candied fruits, sweetish, light coffee-like roasted bitterness in the end, a bit sticky and a bit alcoholic. NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Copper/brown pour with a thin off-white head. Aromas of dark fruits and notes of brown sugar. Flavor is a bit thin. Not quite as robust as I was anticipating. Still a decent brew bur as good as I was hoping Hanoi (974) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2014
Nose is pronounced yeast, copper, slight dark fruit. Taste is yeast, red berry, malt, bread, iron, maybe a little spice in the finish. The mouthfeel was terribly thin.
I was really very disappointed in this.

Shared a 33cl bottle from Cora (Luxembourg). Pours a very dark brown in colour with a tan thick head. Aroma is caramel, raisins and malt. Average carbonation and medium to full creamy body. Flavour is medium sweet and light bitter. Overall, a good beer for a winter afternoon. jmgreenuk (9985) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 1, 2013

Thin tan head. Clear brown pour. A decent dubbel McWorta (1633) - LUXEMBOURG - SEP 27, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2014 Really dark red-brown coloured beer with a fast fading light tan head. Noses of wet autumn leaves, barnyard, spices maybe some soy notes. Light-medium fizzyness with a watery very light slick texture. The taste is bitter and light acidic. The body is medium and the finish lasts with a slick dryness on the palate medium term.
