ciocanelu (2235) - 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 its still a mediocre beer for my taste.

alteregoo (1347) - 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, głwnie suszone owoce, karmel, melasa, mid, troszkę orzechw, rumu, skrki 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, płpełne, 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...

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!
