KajII (801) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a dark murky chestnut brown with a slight reddish hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) light tan creamy head that lasted throughout with excellent sheeting of lacing which basically coated the glass. The aroma was of a toasted biscuit malt and a sweaty Belgian yeast with notes of caramel, toffee, banana and some dark fruit (plums and overripe grapes). The taste had a strong malty presence and a mild sweetness with a hint of banana and caramel early on, and then slowly transformed into a much yeastier taste with a large dose of dark fruit and a mild toffee presence towards the end. The flavor lasted a good amount of time after the swallow with a sweet yeasty flavor and a mild fruity ester that was left to linger on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was somewhere between light and medium in body with a creamy and a tad oily texture and a medium carbonation. Overall an extremely tasty and very easy to drink Dubbel, and is a brew that hides all notion of somewhat moderate ABV...

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2017 Colafarvet med flot beige skum. Ikke så meget i næsen. Karamel, gær og malt. Smagen er afbalanceret. Sød og behagelig fylde. Gid indgang til en belgisk øl.

Miedziane piwo o obfitej pianie, która zdobi szkło i pozostaje do końca w formie mgiełki na powierzchni. Aromat intensywny owocowy, głownie rodzynki, ciemne winogrona i trochę ziół. W smaku także owocowe, lekko kwaskowe i ziołowe. Goryczka średnia. Ogólnie udany dubbel, klasyka stylu.

FireGlider (706) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 28, 2017
Muddy brown color with floating yeast particles and huge brownish head. Dark fruits and some malt aroma. Sweet fruity taste with light bitter malty aftertaste. OK, but nothing more.
