Pours dark brown small head, sweet aroma. Taste is strange roasty, chocolate and dry! Very porter like and moreish! kaserov (677) - Oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 20, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2017 Color negro, opaco, con reflejos rojizos y capa de espuma amarronada de dos dedos de grosor (no mucha retención, aunque no llegue a desvanecerse del todo). Carbonatación a tope (no tan presente en boca). Textura acuosa. Aroma a chocolate, como a galleta, malta tostada y café. En boca hay chocolate por un tubo, pasas, frutos secos, y un final y postgusto a café y chocolate que mete miedo. Porter o Dubbel (o...) de nivel. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JAN 16, 2017
Poured into a chalice, this had an appearance of dark brown color. A finger’s worth of off white foamy head snuck underneath at a nice pace. Sly rings of lace.
The aroma spits out baked apple, vanilla sweetness, Belgian sugars with a sly Belgian spice underneath. Milk chocolate, a touch of coffee bean and some warming dark fruits with a crisp little dry woody edge flowing in neatly.
The flavor yields initially to the sweet side of those previously mentioned aromas. Dry woodiness comes in with a touch of the coffee. Apples sweet bready aftertaste flows into the finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice balancing sweet feel sticking to my tongue nicely. Not cloying, almost but malty smooth.
Overall, is this supposed to be a Dubbel? That’s what I say. I would have this again whatever it’s supposed to be. stevoj (4953) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 23, 2016
Bottle from Brewers Haven. Pours out a dark brown with small foamy beige head. Was hoping this would be better than the "From Heaven", but not so. Malty, roasty aroma close to porter. Taste also seems to mimic a porter, hints of chocolate, but a bit of Belgian yeast turns this back into Belgian territory. The more I taste it, this seems awfully close to a porter.
