TET (3030) - Kaarina, FINLAND - OCT 4, 2012
A chestnut brown beer with an almost medium, light brown head. Aroma of dark fruits, prune, sweet raisins, some roastiness and hint of cherries and yeast, nice aroma. Taste of dark fruits, raisins, quite light and taste could be more strenght, quite dry, some spice and earthyness in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, surprisingly lightweight to drink. The good aroma, more interesting than usual Dubbel, this beer is the positive surprise. rouhlas (3615) - GREECE - OCT 19, 2014
From tap at BierCab, Barcelona. Dark brown, almost black color with small beige brown head. Very nice aroma of roasted malt, coffee, dark fruits, light caramel. Taste is sweet and bitter, like the aroma but not so intense. Medium body almost oily with soft carbonation. fiulijn (20491) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2003
Red amber color. Strong aroma: malt, caramel, alcohol, vegetables, phenol, hop. Quite dry mouthfeel, with a lot of caramel, some malt; not fully convincing. ALLOVATE (3014) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 5, 2007
A little bit different, each of this brewers beers are surprising in both positive and negative ways, out there as far as modern brewing goes. This was another nice drop. thirdeye11 (6160) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 4, 2010
Into a chalice at just on cool. Ruddy, deep, dark brown body, a little more clarity here with this one than others I’ve tasted on the list. Tight, very fine carbonation makes its way up to a nice, two-layered, top-end dense and heavy, rocky off-white head that holds and adheres well to the glass as it recedes. Treacly thick, moorish and port-like, sweet dark fruits on the nose - spiced plums, raisins and blueberries - a little gooey caramel and some cloves make for a nice wintry treat, but underneath lurks a waft of fish broth and cigarette ash that for some unknown reason does not seem out of place. Doesn’t follow onto the plate, though. Inside it is sweet up front, and level, balanced by an ensuing drier side as it moves back becoming dusty, aged, with a very sociable kick in the Jatz crackers coming from that alcohol. Thick, layered, chocolaty and velvety mouthfeel, edging woody notes hold and linger, as some note of almonds and cashews, but it is the deep, dark fruits that hold it together. Spicy and pressing. Good depth, nice long, dry musty swallow, very warming. Plum-like flavour lingers alongside the alcohol spice and woody/nutty notes. It heightens even more as it warms, comes across well in balance, broad and interesting. A nice Dubbel indeed!!! (33cL, BBE 12/07, Int’l Beer Shop, W. Leederville, tasted in October 2006)
(33cl bottle bb 12/2009 thanks to bu11zeye) Pours opaque ruddy brown with lasting bubbles. Nose of rum raisins, cinnamon bread, and brown sugar; smells excellent! Taste of light brown sugar, cola, and light watery grains. Taste didn’t quite live up, but I still enjoyed it a lot.
Dorqui (2258) - Brescia, ITALY - JUL 31, 2013
Bottled 0,33L. Amber brown color, good foamy head of discreet duration, fraught aspect. Moderate malty and caramel aroma, roast corn and cellar. Good prickly and medium solid taste, caramel and malty body with a quite sweet final of discreet persistance. EddyBeer1 (1058) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 30, 2013
Brune classique, effervescence gazeuse, col beige. Malts caramel à peine rôtis, légère amertume réglissée, belle douceur fruitée, rien aqueuse (et c’est bien dommage!), un peu sèche. Maakun (5548) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2014 Very dark reddish brown, small light beige head. Nice (tropical) fruits, roasted malts, some chocolate and marzipan. Medium sweet, with light bitter finish. Medium-light body, slightly thin texture. Good stuff! agent_persik (742) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 10, 2015
Dark brown reddish color, medium beige head. Aroma of caramel, malt, dried fruits, yeast, toffee, light spice. Sweet lightly bitter taste with spicy aftertaste. Medium body and strong carbonation. Nice dubbel. MarinEvelyn (854) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 9, 2016
Sweet caramel malt. Very sweet, dark fruit and a bit of alcohol. Interesting beer. I quite like.
