Translated from the Dutch on brewers website: Originally brewed as a Christmas beer, this irresistible dark beer for tasting at 7.1% ABV became a permanent fixture almost immediately. Its 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.

33cl bottle. Dark brown with medium head that disappears completely. Medium intensive aroma of dried fruits, coca-cola, chocolate, clove, burned bread. Medium carbonation, creamy mouth feel. The beer is medium dry like bread and raisins with some clove and watered coca-cola. Move along.

Inoven (441) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 11, 2016
Fles thuis gedeeld. Diep donkerbruin helder bier met veel schuim. Goed aroma, caramel. Smaak is zoet, caramelachtig en fruitig. Nasmaak is redelijk vlug weg. Lekker bier om rustig van te genieten.

Bottle at home. Aroma is dark malt, caramel, candy sugar, raisins, spicy notes, touch of dark chocolate. Flavour is medium sweet. Body is medium. Too much candy sugar for my taste.

Icedwarf (1392) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2016
Donkerbruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht zoet, licht bitter met iets van karamel en anijs. Komt iets te licht over anders zou dit een beter bier geweest zijn.
