Malty and caramelly in the nose Nice malty, thick head Hint of chocolate, caramel, toffee nuttiness. Not too hoppy, just malty enough to offset the hops. Had this one before Aventinus and the Aventinus Eisbock. Was my favorite until then. PetrUS, AventinUS....apparently I like this style...

So says the label "The key to heaven". No argument from me. Best before date of 14 July 2007. This one poured a really BIG foamy tan head and the colour was a cloudy dark copper. This had the most incredible lacing Ive ever seen; it was simply massive! The aroma was of both fruits and spices. Taste - merely terrific, and a not so shabby aftertaste either, with some caramel popping up.

Une double brune de Bavik, trs jolie de couleur sur le brun rouille tirant sur le noir. Absolument limpide, si on carte la levure. Mon exemplaire a dpass sa date limite de 15 mois, et propose une mousse beige qui retombe vite mais reste crmeuse la surface. Les armes sont de prune, figue, marron, sucres candi et cassonade. Les saveurs reprennent en 1re bouche nettement sur les sucres mentionns, avec une arrire-bouche sur le malt torrfi modrment. La 2me bouche est plus fondue, tout en restant assez sur la crpe bretonne En 3me, on retrouve la prune mre et des fruits confits, qui font parvenir cette bire aux plus grandes saveurs du genre. La levure est de bon niveau mais pas assez srieuse pour passer la grande classe. La longueur sannonce modre vu les petits 6,5 % abv proposs, et on se laisse donc bercer par le breuvage sans senvoler... Mais le problme est plutt dans le manque de complexit pour arriver la grande stature. La finale en effet ne laisse rien passer de plus, bien que assez lquilibre. Donc une brune comme on en fait de nombreuses en Belgique... Nous sommes peut-tre chanceux, mais nous devenons par le fait mme exigeants!! Un accessit de complaisance pour celle-ci.

Wygląd świetny - bardzo obfita, gęsta piana. Kremowa. Lacing. Piękna rubinowa barwa. Klarowne. W aromacie na pierwszy miejscu śliwka i alkohol. Owocowe - oprcz śliwki może inne owoce - czereśnie. Z butelki wyraźniej czuć nuty palone, kawowe. Trochę karmelowe. Bardzo dobry, przyjemny aromat. Piwo raczej pełne. Wysokie wysycenie. Niska do średniej goryczki. W smaku owocowe (głwnie śliwka), słodkie. Delikatnie rozgrzewający alkohol. Bardzo trafiający do mnie Dubbel.

33 cl. Nearly opaque mahogany with ruby highlights and a two-finger lasting head. Aroma is earth-spiced raisin-date bread, molasses, and caramel icing. Flavor is similar to the aroma, with a finish of slight sour cherry, cumin, and brown sugar. Medium body is smooth, acidic-tingly, and finishes dryish. Excellent dessert beer.

beautiful appearance of mahogany colour with ruby notes and half inch creamy beige head; aroma of green apple, dried plum and figs, candy sugar, and some bread;taste of dried fruits, roasted sugar and some hoppy bitterness; would be a perfect dubbel if the taste was at least similarly complex as the aroma

Pours out nicely with a big head that falls into a good strong lacing. Smells different, and therefore very good, from what Ive reviewed lately. I always enjoy a new taste. Its full flavored and a little spicy with something I cant put my finger on. Mouthfeel is very good and the aftertaste is slightly sour in a good way. I would definetly have more of these.

11.2 oz. bottle- Pours almost black with red highlights when held up to the light and a thin tan head, the aroma is brown sugar and raisins. The flavor is caramel malt, seriously it tastes like a chunk of caramel, awesome. The body is medium to full, carbonation is high, finish is sweet like candy, could I drink this all day, hell yes, this stuff is great.

I cannot believe that I am the second rater of this, and I am very happy that I have 5 more Petrus brews waiting for me to sample. This one was part of a great 6 bottle sampler from the Beer Yard. The pour was a gorgeous deep ruby with a 4-finger tan head. The aroma was caramel malty, with tons of fruit, including cabernet, grapes, apple, and some rauchy, oaky bourbon notes. The taste was extremely fruity, backed by a solid sweet malt presence. I noted raspberry, strawberry, huge blackberry, plus grapes and even blue slushy flavors. The palate was dense and complex. This one surprised me, and I cant wait to try the other beers from this brewer.
