Dubbel with off-white, creamy head and murky bronze robe. Aroma of pear, raisins, caramel, brown candi sugar, flowery hops. Dark fruits in the mouth on a sweetish caramel malt base, medium hoppy finish. Okay for the style and enjoyable, but nothing to get all excited about. mikske79 (1746) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - AUG 18, 2014

Belgian brown beer, so it has a malty body, with some notes of caramel and fruit, but this one is more hoppy than others of this style. Tasty beer. DuffMan (10732) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle @ Delerium Cafe in Rio de Janeiro. Murky brown with a thick cream coloured head. Sweet malty aroma and flavour, breadcrusts and pitted fruits. A decent double, maybe a little simple. Idiosynkrasie (8063) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 13, 2014
330ml bottle. Clear, dark ruby red colour with average, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Fruity, dark malty aroma, notes of dark berries, a touch of plum. Taste is dark malty, fruity, notes of dark berries and plum, dry overtones with a touch of fruit parings, a quite "neutral" touch of yeast, not really spicy, close to hay, very subtle hints of chocolate.

Medium brown mokka coloured head, brown chestnut with some reddish hint, malty caramel sweet smell, malty peppery dark fruits medium to high carbonation, medium bitter Maakun (6582) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2014
7.5% version... Slightly hazyreddish dark brown with small light brown head. Lots of caramel, toast, very ripe red plums, raisins, chocolate, and some herbal touch. Medium sweet with light roasted bitte rin the finish. Medium bodied, average carbonation, slightly watery herbal finish. Like the other Viven beers a decent example in the style.
