hrabren (1131) - Zagreb, - NOV 2, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2017 Dark brown with beige head. Smells of smokey wood and berries. The taste strikes you immediately; almonds, nuts, berries. Alcohol persists throughout, even in the aftertaste. Very good. Murky amber, lasting creamy off-white head. Fruity aroma, dry fruits, biscuit, spice. Bit husky taste, sweet, alcohol present, harsh. Medium body, medium carbonation, sweet finish turns light dry. Good beer, but really not very interesting.

abirres (116) - Salamanca, SPAIN - MAR 17, 2017
Vierte marrn cobriza, velada con espuma color canela, cremosa de muy buena retencin con buen encaje. Aromas a frutos negros, pasas y ligeras notas a chocolate, presencia de caramelo en un fondo licoroso que recuerda a cerezas kirsch. En boca se nota maltosa, dulce a sirope y sabores a frutos pasiegos, final seco y siempre con el alcohol bien presente, quizs en demasa. Buena cerveza aunque se queda floja si la comparamos con una trapense. Notable.

Ysok02 (1313) - Mons, BELGIUM - MAR 11, 2017
Robe brune, mousse crmeuse, peu persistante. Nez typ sur des notes chocolates, de la fourrure, une touche chocolate et de la noisette, note lacte. Bouche lattaque acidule, note malte, bulle acidule, fine amertume, finale moyennement longue. Agrable mais pas transcendante.

Barwa ciemna, miedziana. Piana brązowa, gęsta i drobna. Oblepia szkło. Aromat dosyć przyjemny ale średnio intensywny. W smaku trochę owocw, karmel. Poprawny Dubbel ale nie powala.

TtV (435) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2017
Bottle 33cl. Dark brown with a fluffy off white head. Red glow in the glass. Aroma of brown sugar, malts and grain. The taste is surprisingly grainy with little sweetness that was expected from the aroma. Little development to the aftertaste.

Birra dal colore marrone scuro. Schiuma, beige finee persistente. Allolfatto sentori di frutta secca e spezie. Al palato corpo da medio a pieno con note di malto tostato e caramello. Nel finale amaro con note erbacee. Una buona birra.

nathanvc (330) - Brugge, BELGIUM - MAR 4, 2017
Pours hazy brown with a thick, foamy, lasting, off-white head. The aroma contains roasted malt, hops, brown sugar, yeast, some coffee and chocolate, and a bit metallic. It tastes light fruity sweet and light to medium spicy bitter. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation. Very mild and drinkable.

MAGICuenca91 (77) - Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, SPAIN - FEB 27, 2017
Tomada en copa a partir de botella de 33 cl. Esperaba ms de esta cerveza an teniendo un buen nivel. Un aroma intenso, acompaado por una apariencia de color marrn oscuro con ligeros tonos rub (corona de espuma beige y constante), un sabor que an siendo agradable es algo suave, le falta algo de potencia y un paladar al mismo nivel. Repito, es una buena cerveza, pero le falta un poco de fuelle.

tfredvik (1859) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 19, 2017
Clear, very deep copper body with a rather large, beige, long-lived head that sticks to the glass. Quite strong aroma of brown sugar, roasted malt, dark caramel and Belgian yeast. Strong flavour of roasted malt, burnt sugar, dark caramel, brown sugar, Belgian yeast and alcohol. Mid-bodied with a moderate carbonation. Not bad!
[25 cl from tap @ Acadmie de la bire, Paris]

Pours a dark black with a thin head. The aroma is dark fruits, raisens, plums, and cane sugar. The flavor is more of the same with alcohol being quite noticeable.
