After the ‘Zatte’, this is the oldest beer from Brouwerij ‘t IJ. Natte is classed as a ‘dubbel’, a Belgian category of smooth, dark beers. Because we partly use dark malt, Natte has a reddish-brown colour and a smooth, roasted flavour with earthy tones of brown sugar, nuts and plums. Completed with slightly bitter hops, this is a nicely balanced beer and one of the brewery’s classics.

ABUSEDGOAT (2692) - California, USA - APR 15, 2007
Bottle dated Sept 2002. Cloudy reddish brown, moderate head with good lacing and retention. Aroma is raisin, dark sugars, hint of chocolate, some spiced funk. Flavor brings this, medium to light body and slightly oxidized. Fairly tart, don’t know if that’s because of the age or not. Overall it just wasn’t that enjoyable.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - APR 9, 2007
Bottle: Deep rusty amber with visible proteins floating around, topped by a creamy, but fading off-white head. Somewhat tart aroma for a Dubbel. Nice Belgian character, with a plummy fruityness, apple skin, orange peel notes, dark caramel malt; appetizing. Creamy mouthfeel. The flavor has a light tartness upfront. Fruity, plummy notes, candied granny smith apples, light orange peel, musty wood-like notes, subtle roastyness, caramel malt, slightly oxidized, with a zingy, slightly spicy finish; along with subtle roasted toffee notes. A unique and intersting Dubbel.

Fukito (1057) - Santiago, CHILE - APR 5, 2007
Tap a T´Ij, march 07. Pretty nice, raisiny, spicy aroma with a fruity touch. Taste is spicy, malty and a somewhat wine like finnish. Medium MF, filling and warming and a nutty ending. Appareance is chestnut copper with some rubby hues and a dense, creamy white head. Nice, easygoing amber ale.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 1, 2007
Fynske Øldage 2005, Odense. Dark amber with a nice head. the aroma makes me think of cheese, but I also get notes of dark fruit, caramel and sweetness. the flavour is sweet, very sweet. It has notes of roasted malt, candy sugar, caramel, fruit, berries and is full-bodied. It’s not a bad one, but it doesn’t make my hands clap either...

thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 23, 2007
Bottle. Hazy, orangey amber with a big yellowish head that left nice lacing. Great fruity aroma, that is vinous and spicy at the same time. Spicy flavours, fruit, even a bit of chocolate, nice bitter finish. ’t IJ does not let you down.

Sigmund (7224) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 6, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2007 330 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal pub, Stavanger. The beer is quite clear reddish brown when poured, a slight haziness may occur if the sediment is disturbed in the end, decent head. LOVELY aroma with intense fruity and vinous notes, spices are very much present too. The flavour is also fruity and spicy but not very powerful, hints of caramel. Moderate sweetness, moderate bitterness. A slightly salty finish. Light bodied, the ABV is well hidden. Easy drinking. The aftertaste is not remarkable.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - FEB 16, 2007
Brilliant amber/brown. Large, dense, chunky, tan cap leaves a coat of lace. Nose of sweet malt, musty doughy yeast, fresh vegetation (not quite herbal), and light perfume. Flavor adds some caramel cookie malt, subtle funk to the yeast, dry and yeasty finish, and aftertaste of toasted cookies and sweet herbs. Medium body, soft and foamy, too much carbonation. Nice session dubbel with a t IJ twist.

HenrikSoegaard (13803) - Randers, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2007
Bottle. Creamy white excellent fully lasting head. Cloudy amber colour. Light malty/hoppy/yeasty aroma. Ok flavor, but overwhealming mangonotes like other ’t IJ beers. Average finish. Oily palate but way too fizzy.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 17, 2007
Pours dark reddish brown with a thin, mostly receding wispy light brown head. Aroma of cherries, sticky alefruits, raisins, toffee. Taste is sweet toffee malt, plum, raisins, and oak. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, with slight stickiness and lush carbonation. Very interesting, dubbel-ish beer.
