COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Translated from the Dutch on brewer’s website: Originally brewed as a Christmas beer, this irresistible dark beer for tasting at 7.1% ABV became a permanent fixture almost immediately. It’s a mildly fruit, lightly sweet and soft dark warm fermented abbey beer with three types of malt and two types of hops and additions of light and dark candy sugar. The biggest proportion of malt is Munich barley malt, which has been killed a slightly higher temperature to give a slightly more coloured character than usual. This gives Ter Dolen Donker its biscuit-like flavour. Added to this are light hints of caramel from some caramel malts, along with the typical flavours of light and dark candy sugar. Our Donker is bottle conditioned.

Aroma is roggebrood, koffie en wat vanille. Smaak richting weke koffie, wat bitter na, zacht caramel eroverheen. Korte nasmaak. Licht bruinwitte kraag.

vinivini (3147) - Gomel, BELARUS - NOV 11, 2017
Foggy deep brown, nice head og beige colour. The nose is more fruity and perfumey than a common dubbel beer. Lots of forest berry jam, blossom, additional caramel, figs and dates. Medium body. The taste is relatively dry. Moderate maltiness. Berries, fruits. Mild yeast. Some perfume. Low bitterness. Tasty.

Piepenhenrich (1288) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 1, 2017
Pours dark brown color with a thin, beige head that won't last for long. Some fruity notes and a slightly spicy sting, followed by a very light alcoholic aftertaste. After all, a solid Dubbel.

A full flavored beer with a lingering taste to the tongue. This is a quality beer that can be paired with just about anything. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle from Chez Marie, Ieper. Pours a hazy dark brown with a healthy tan head. Aroma is good dubbel-like fruits and yeast. Taste is smooth and rich in candy sugar and yeasty dark fruits with additional caramel and brown bread. Great dubbel.

Ysok02 (1913) - Mons, BELGIUM - OCT 29, 2016
Robe brune, belle mousse café au lait, crémeuse. Nez tout en élégance sur des notes de malt torréfié, de chocolat au lait, sur une fine note houblonnée et levurée. Bouche à l’attaque fraîche et torréfiée, belle bulle fine et longue finale équilibrée et raffraîchissante. Une très belle bière..

33cl bottle. Pours clear dark reddish brown colour with a huge good lasting tan head. Aroma of red fruits, red malt, caramel and some spices. Taste of dark red malt, wood, caramel, sugar, some coffee, okay!
