Voici une double qui nous apporte de belles surprises Son niveau de 6,5 % abv ne pouvait laisser prsager cela, mais elle y est arrive. Nous allons voir comment. Couleur noir intense. Quelques matires en suspension au versage, mais qui ne peuvent nuire ni la prsentation ni la dgustation. Bulles assez faibles, et mousse caf crme qui vient juste napper sans faire dautres efforts, mais ceci va curieusement rapprocher cette bire dune brune plus forte... Armes de fruits mrs, groseille noire, avec une pointe de cassis et de pruneau. Aussi un peu de caf moka. 1re bouche structure, avec une trs belle prise sur du moka, des fruits mrs, du cake aux pommes. Arrire-bouche pleine et bien quilibre, avec du caractre. 2me bouche au trs beau fondu bois/fruits/caf, avec une pointe de chicore. 3me bouche avec la fois de la douceur et un aspect assez fort. Arrire-bouche bien malte, avec une sorte de tourbe. Trs bien. La longueur nous donne du malt chocolat et caramel, avec de trs belles nuances. La levure est un peu charbonne, adapte au genre. Lalcool est faible, mais il fait un bon travail de double. Trs bien. La finale apporte quelques notes de porto et de confit doie, avec un peu de bois de ft. Conclusion: une double magnifique, qui peut quasi tre un modle du genre. Certes pas forte, mais ce nest ce quon lui demande, mais avec un joli caractre et des saveurs multiples, sans la moindre fausse note...

When read stuff on the forum about the closing of the Scheldebrouwerij I decided to get some of their beers when it is still possible. I was not disappointed. This beer rocks. Smell is quite good, spicy. A bit rummy indeed. Very massive sweet, spicy taste, still well balanced. Palate is malty, bitter. This is good, oh yeah!

I did not know what to expect from this, but what a pleasant surprise! Cloudy brown color, with beautiful long-lasting creamy head. Spicy, fruity and maybe a bit hoppy aroma. Bit malts add to the taste. Palate becomes a bit acidic at the end of the glass. But this Dulle Griet is certainly very good!

bittle at the Mug in Middelburg. Something like the Merck Toch Hoe Sterck, but with a more caramel taste and a slightly browner colour.

Bottle. Blackish brown beer with a creamy and thickish off white head. The aroma is malty and rich and the flavour is warming, malty, rich and mildy sweet. Overall a nice malty and roasted beer.

Rodders (137) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2009
In a 330ml bottle from the Fat Cat in Norwich. Already had a few pints, and maybe a couple of belgian beers. So I was definately not sober, though I felt bowled over by this beer at the time and reviewed it, despite being with friends (something I try not to normally do, as it can slow the evening down somewhat). They all agreed that yeas it was an awesome beer. Pitch Black with smooth white head. Smell red fruits and plums with some alcohol wading in. Taste much more with loads of fruit, loads of rich malt and a touch of bitter hops. Some carbonation. Awesome.

Excellent dubbel with a grand taste of caramell and malt. The Scheldebrouwerij obviously knows what its doing.
