3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Abbey dubbel made for the GB supermarkets, very cliché, with a caramelly character adorned with some liquorice and some roasted bitterness in the finish. Low profile and probably an alias of Saint-Benoît Brune..

Nice Belgian dubbel beer. Sweet, but not overly sweet. With some dark fruits and spices. One of the first more special beers I ever had.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Kris wines. Brownish with an off white head. Nose of malt, yeast, some cola and berries also. Taste is much the same with hints of wood and spice, ginger in fact. Pretty much what I expected, a run of the mill Bruin.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A Sim rate (bottle from Kris Wines thanks to Reakt): Roasty, spicy, brown bread aroma. Tart, slightly metallic flavour with malt, wheat. Quite bitter with a very bland finish. OK, but not much body or depth to it.

Kulminator bbf 2004. Theres quite a bit of fruit still in here, candy sugar is also noteable, however theres a dustyness that i assume is from age, meaning i dont think it has aged well.
