330ml bottle (Cracked Kettle)Brix (660) - DENMARK - MAY 18, 2008
Rich reddy brown, beige head. Beautiful sweet melange - some slight high sour note, a cascade of sweeter tones such as dark fruits, and a good gravelly malty base (bass?) And that’s just the aroma. Pleasantly carbonated, tingles the tongue a bit, but otherwise very smooth. Slightly alcoholic taste, and some tangy spices, but a good fat dark brown roasted malt body. As said below, sweet but not sticky or sickly. Hops quite prominent as part of the spicy side. Finish is roasted malts, a hint of coffee perhaps, and some spiky hops.
Tasted 2008-05-18. Pours dark brown with off-white head. Aroma of nuts, chocolate, yeast and plums. Has kind of a coffee like flavour. Quite dark for this style. I like it. Stefano (2027) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 7, 2008
Brown reddish body with an off white head. Fruity chocolate caramel in the aroma. Fruity taste with coriander, roasted malts sweet and slight sour finish. Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - MAR 15, 2008

Not a fan of this brewery so far. Clear brown with a bubbling brown head, aroma of fermented fruits, grain and old mud, has a little porty notes on the positive side. Flavor is sweet and again a little cloying, with bitter notes of metal. jonas (7985) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - FEB 11, 2008
Bottle. Dark ruby colour, big golden brown foam which just made the most amazing double ring shape in my glass while collapsing. Spicy caramellized sugar aoma, vanilla and oak. Very full barrique flavor, vanilla. Dry mouthfeel, . Dusty wood and herbal hops retronasal.

Bottle at Chaucer’s, thanks Julie!- Pours a dark brown with reddish hues.Frothy beige cap Plummy, fruity aroma with nice yeast, Belgian candy sugar, caramel and some vanilla with hints of molasses. This is quite fruity and sweet. Like raisin bread with other sweet dried fruit. Toasty and caramel flavours also come forth. Its prettywoody as well. Finish is creamy as pet the style. Lingering bitterness with some fruit. Good brew! davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - JAN 23, 2008
Appearance: dark mahogany color with reddish tones. Great head, some rocky, beige and lasting.
Aroma: dark malts and sugar. Intensive ripe-fruit’s smells with reminiscences of blackberries, plums, strawberry, dark-raisins, oranges in syrup and figs. As well some cinnamon and clove.
Flavor: semi-toast and caramel malts start, an intensive and persistent cherry’s reminiscence and slight yeast’s touch. Other ripe-fruit’s touch, such as plums, blackberries, figs and raisins. Is incredible that the cherries isn’t an ingredient, the flavor remember me an cherry-liquor. Sweet flavor but not sickly. Others sweet-spiciness touches like cinnamon, clove and wood. Toasty and warming final that balanced the taste. Some coffee’s grains aftertaste.
Palate: mediumbody and semi-oily texture. Light to medium carbonation.
Exquisite, nice cherry’s touch, own character, complex and fruity beer. Unforgettable taste. (1,5 years after the declared expired date in the bottle). MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 17, 2008
Bouteille brune de 33 cl. Arômes de caramel, avec une touche de houblon rappelant les agrumes. Très belle apparence, d’un brun intense aux reflets rouges. Belle mousse beige qui tient bien et qui marque le verre. En bouche, le caramel est omniprésent, un peu au détriment des autres saveurs. On remarque toutefois une touche d’alcool et un peu de houblon en arrière-goût. BelgiskOlklub (1083) - Viby J, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2008 Bottle 33 cl. Small frothy white head that’s mostly diminishing. Nice lacing. Average malty aroma of chocolate, coffee, plums and raisins, and light perfumed hoppy aroma. Medium oliy body with a average carbonation. The flavor is moderate sweet and light hoppy. JoeinDahlem (1595) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 11, 2008
A sound, tasty dubbel, sampled as Durboyse Brune. Pours dark brown with a big, frothy-looking beige head that lasts. So it’s pretty. Sweet, dark fruits in the nose, touch of licorice. Mild, fruity sweetness with a fair layer of bitterness to bring the balance. Average carbonation. Maybe a little clean on the finish. Wouldn’t kick her out of bed.
