ciocanelu (3000) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 14, 2017
Clear, dark amber color with tan head. Aroma has sugar and dried fruits, mostly raisins. Taste follows with dried fruits and candi sugar but there is also a metallic note, not really pleasant. Medium body, medium plus carbonation. The metallic note fades after some time but it’s still a mediocre beer for my taste.

Bottle. HUGE head with an underwhelming aroma. Yeast, citrus (orange), toffee on nose with a full flavor that is slightly sour with a dry finish.

Tognetta (953) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 4, 2017
Âmbar escura de leve turbidez, espuma marrom clara de ótima formação e persistência. Chocolate, laranja, passas, complexa. Paladar de médio/alto dulçor sem amargor. Corpo e carbonatação médios. Final adocicado tendendo para o anis e leve picância. Muito boa.

3.9
alteregoo (1780) - Kalisz, POLAND - APR 4, 2017
Puszysta, obfita piana, średnio trwała. Barwa miedziana, klarowna. Aromat karmelowo melasowy z całą masą przypraw, suszonych gruszek i rodzynek. W smaku dość słodki, głównie suszone owoce, karmel, melasa, miód, troszkę orzechów, rumu, skórki pomarańczy, pumpernikla, w przeciwieństwie zaś do większości intensywnych, ciemnych piw świątecznych przyprawy są tu delikatnym dodatkiem, uzupełnieniem w aftertejsie. Goryczka niska, herbaciano ziołowa. Wysycenie wysokie, drobniutkie, za wysokie, półpełne, lekko szorstkie w odbiorze.


Całkiem dobry Dubbel, na plus nie dominujący całości wpływ przypraw, aczkolwiek przeszkadza nieco musujące, szampańskie nagazowanie. Do Westmalle Dubbel jednak troszkę brakuje w mojej opinii...

4.4
Lore (2919) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 1, 2017
slightly opalescent mahogany-ruby colour, large, dense and stable beige head; aroma of dried sour cherry, dark chocolate, plum jam, caramel biscuit, hints of vanilla, licorice and slight nutmeg; taste of dark chocolate cake with burnt plum jam, bittersweet burnt sugar, licorice and minimal anise; excellent dubbel!

UPDATED: APR 1, 2017 Found at the neighborhood HEB, thank you very much. Tilted into my New Belgium tulip glass it shows a dark ruby red with a glorious long lasting off-white head. It is a nose of great promise, ripe fruit, vanilla and caramel. The taste is quite fine, I get plum, raisin, a slight sweetness and a lingering satisfying bitterness. Not heavy like other Belgians, I can appreciate it both ways, Good time.
