2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Beer pours (in Chimay glass) a clear, very dark brown-red liquid with a medium amount of off-white head that dissipates quickly to near nothing. Aroma is of molasses, cherry, alcohol - not pleasant. Flavor is of hops and coffee beans, molasses, with a slightly dry ending. Taste and mouthfeel is watered down. Sampled at 68 degrees Fahrenheit.

Pours very cloudy brownish amber with thin head. Carmel, floral, spicy aroma. Smooth carmel, coffee up front. Some spice in the middle, and a sweet toastyness to the finish. Mouth watering lingering flavor as it slides down the throat.

(Bottled, at the Helsinki Beer Festival 2004) Dark brown/amber color, small head. Caramel-malty, syrupy, sourish aroma. Malty, sweetish, fruity flavor with hint of licorice and beans. Quite light-bodied palate for a dubbel.

Poured a nice dark brown color with a thick white head. The flavor was of dried fruit, maybe figs, and the finish was smooth. Well done.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A soft nose, mild with light spice. Cloudy pour. Malty flavor with a candied aftertaste. Overwhelming taste of treacle. Seems like it would probably be good with desert.
