yngwie (17261) - Kristiansand, - MAY 16, 2013
Bottle. Nice lacings left as the creamy off-white head sinks with the constantly lower level of unlcear, dark amber beer. Prunes, dark sugar, some grassy, peppery hops, and some pastry hints. Prunes, dark sugar, grassy hops and some spiced notes. Full body, very dry on the palate, with soft and pleasant carbonation. Bitter, yet malty sweet finish. A quite pleasant one, but it sort of lacks the balance one normally expect from Belgian beer. 130516

Holmen1 (6563) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2017
0,33 flaske fra Belgisk Bryg, siste kveld på hytta okt-17, mens jeg hører direktesendig fra DR koncerthus med Den norske operas orkester (!): lett uklar brunlig rav med fint skum som varer. Mørke karameller, fiken, sviskeplommer, knekk, brunsukker, urter og bjørnebær. Et kledelig dryss av kanel dukker opp når temperaturen har steget litt. En riktig god dubbel som ikke er for søt, men kan allikevel dekke dagsbehovet for snop. Fin bitterhet med et fruktig anslag i ettersmaken, og varmen i magen er behagelig. Passet utmerket til "Ein Heldenleben".

Fles gekocht in België, thuis geprobeerd. Het is een roodbruin bier met een volle schuimkraag. Het heeft een beetje een zoete geur. De smaak is gebrand, caramel, druif.

zacgillbanks (5535) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2017
Bottle from Carrefour City Supermarket, Brussels, Belgium. Hazy brown coloured with a thick white head of foam. It has a malty, toffee and candy fruit flavour followed by warming chocolate and dried fruit on the slight roasted finish. Good.

Desverger (13097) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2017
[email protected], Copenhagen - Dark brown pour with off white head. Sweet and toasted malty with noes of caramel, some cocoa, brown sugar, dried fruit shred, some spices, sweet malty close.

MPA (1030) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - APR 3, 2017
Bottle. Murky brown with beige head. Figs, caramel and toffee aroma. Sweet malt flavour with metallic and alcoholic notes and a decent bitterness.

stupre (538) - Nanterre, FRANCE - MAR 12, 2017
Bottle purchased @ La caisse de bières. Bière très agréable avec un bel équilibre.

Shark_Pants (769) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 12, 2016
330ml bottle BB 01 Dec 17. Deep hazy red with beautiful big beige frothy head, leaving nice lacing as it slowly recedes. Aromas of plums, currants, caramel, bread. The taste has lots of hearty fresh bread, caramel, plums, cherries, currants, herbal and spicy hop bitterness. Medium to full bodied, nice light prickly carbonation. Quite a good dubbel.

Muggus69 (2748) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 6, 2016
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 01/12/17
Deep bronze body, slightly murky, pours a sparse beige head.
Aroma subdued but there’s promise here - nutty, biscuity malt, brown sugar, some spice & dark fruit esters, perhaps a touch of booze in the equation.
Carbonation is soft, creamy, mouth-filling texture, reasonably thick, substantial without being particularly rich.
Brown sugar/candi sugar sweetness up front on the body, bringing its own earthiness, amongst peppery, woody phenolics, blackcurrant & berry fruit esters. Subtle warmth on the finish.
Good dubbel!

Roasted notes, chocolate, brown reddish with a good light brown head, medium body, medium carbonation, roasted...not my favorite dubbel but good.

GarageBrewer80 (673) - SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2016
Köpt på landet utanför Brugge. Mörkbrun, nötig färg med smutsbrun skumkrona. Doft av brun malt och lite pumpa. Torr, söt och lite oljig kropp. Blaskig smak av kavring, karamellmalt och lite nöt.
