3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber in color with an off-white head. Sweet bread and toffee malt notes with a fair amount of brown sugar. There’s a mild clove spiciness and a bit of vanilla. Some mild chocolate on the flavor to go along with the toffee and toasted bread. A decent amount of banana, mild dark fruit notes, and some spice and yeast flavors as well.
From bottle. Pours ruby-brown with beige head that won‘t stay long. Malty aroma. Flavors are more complex combining malts, some fruit and a hoppy/spicy sting that makes this a very interesting brew to have. Mpuntmuts (283) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2017 Tap. Cloudy amber brown with small beige head. Burnt sugar, caramelized malts, dried fruits peaking through for smell. Taste follows the nose. Medium body with medium carbo. Okay beer. Erzengel (9540) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 17, 2017

Roodbruin bier met dunne beige schuimkraag. Geur: licht geroosterde mout, ietwat metaal, wat karamel en wat gedroogd fruit. Smaak: bitterzoet, wat metaal, karamel, gistkarakter, verse vijg en wat zeste van citroen. Zachte koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: bitterzoet, wat gedroogd fruit en kleverig zoet. Complex biertje die alcoholischer aanvoelt dan het is. wilde_joost59 (295) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2017
Bottle at home. Deep red/light brown color. Beige head, disappears. Taste is a bit flat for a "dubbel", that also goes for the aftertaste. A bit disappointing. Smithld1 (325) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2017
Bottle in Amsterdam airport. Quite offensive but better than Heineken. Dark brown, clovey. Decent alcohol level. jmgreenuk (10008) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - AUG 20, 2017
Bottle from a beach tent in Kijkduin. The summer of ’17. Poured a hazy medium brown with a frothy off white head. The aroma is sweet malt, toffee caramel, light fruit. The flavour is moderate sweet with a smooth, rich, sweet malt, fruity hop palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. MarkoNm (2940) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 14, 2017
