Tap @ Mikkeller. Dark brown pour with a nice chestnut tone with a egg shell white head. Aroma is heavy on the raisins and yeast esters. Has a nice blackcurrant note to the esters. Some caramel maltiness, too, but over all pretty estery, as a dubbel should be. Taste is more light than the aroma suggests - there is a light tartness to it that hides very well behind the raisinous and estery sweetness. This is quite above any other dubbel Ive had. Very nice! I could imagine that a sour cherry and brettanomyces version of this aged in an oak barrel would be through the roof.

fra fat p Mikkeller lbar: min frste l fra Pizza Port. Et hederlig forsk p en belgisk dubbel, men ikke helt overbevist. De har ikke spart p rosinpakka. God, men belgierne gjr dette best.

evergreen0199 (3276) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2012
Keg at Cask Pub and Kitchen, Pimlico, London. An amber coloured pour with a small white head on top. Sweet, fruity aroma. Tastes of raisins and other dark fruits, spice and childrens fruit sweets (tootie fruity) that I used to eat back in the 70s! Rather strange to be honest. Vaguely Belgian in character but a bit unbalanced. Not really for me, give me more coffee monster.

CP&K Pizza Port Tap Takeover. Clear red - amber beer, little off white head. Softish palate. Mild fine carbonation. Very mildly tart fruits - cherry and raspberry. Tiny bit of coca cola. Finishes smooth. Easy going.
