33 cl, notched "at least maintainable to" June, 2004! Nearly opaque brown-black with a large creamy head that lasts and frosts the glass well. Great nose of earthy spices, dates, musty plums, caramel, brown sugar-molasses, and slight chocolate. Flavors are similar with added notes of funk, roasted nuts, cocoa, raspberry, wood and more spices for great balance. Cured tobacco in the finish. Smooth, medium-heavy body is a little sticky but in a nice dessert-beer way, and finishes slightly dry with a little alcohol warming. Maybe everyone should rate a 6-8 year old bottle of this stuff. schavuitje (308) - APELDOORN, NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2016

Wonderful on tap in the windmill brewery: Malty with raisons and also hoppy aroma and flavor. Nice amber body with hints of orange and a diminishing head. Fizzy carbonation, fullmouth and crisp. Weeh, balanced, this beer hits the spot! fomentateur (110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2004
Nat in Dutch means wet. I believe the addition of "te" at the end makes it mean wetty which, leads me to believe that there is a play on words here alluding to Natte meaning naughty. I have great admiration for the Brouwerij t'IJ and their ability to vary their styles with only the subtlest changes in alcohol and malts. Natte is 6.5% alcohol, amber in color, and very dinkable. I can see where this beer might make someone naughty or get them wet. The aroma is mild and earthy just as the aroma of the sea outside the brewery. The predominate flavor is of roasted malts, which also lends the wonderful amber color. Good clean crisp finish. Way too easy to drink for a beer that is 6.5%

Very good double ale. I liked the thick head on the beer. It tastes like raisins and vanilla. Very malt-like aftertaste. Excellent brew.
