Borresteijn (6542) - Zaandam, - FEB 3, 2013
33cl Bottle from ABS Drinks Winksele, ABV 6.1%. Reddish dark brown colour, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, raisins, plums, cocoa, light roasted malts. Flavour is likewise, dry, a bit dusty, not as sweet as the aroma suggests, bitter cocoa finish. Light-bodied. OK.

Shark_Pants (648) - 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 (2190) - 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 theres 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!

Vignale (3413) - Malm, SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2016
Flaska frn Beernavigator ca 1,5 r gammal. Coca colafrgad, klar, lgt skum som lngsamt frsvinner utan att lmna rester. Mogen doft av torkad frukt, madeira, cola, plommon. Mjuk och rund i munnen, mttlig stma, aningen platt och lite dammig vilket kanske r ett lderstecken. Fin fruktig smakbild med vl integrerad smaker, ltt krnbeska. En trevlig dubbel.

MiP (15328) - Snderborg, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2015
Bottle, 7.5%. Milk chocolate aroma, slightly spicy, some brown sugar in the nose. Seemingly clear reddish dark brown colour. Very small frothy off-white head. The flavour has a nice mild chocolate note, not as much sugar as the aroma with being too dry. A mild and quite clean bitterness to balance. A pleasant and well-balanced dubbel.

Bamsen78 (5104) - Snderborg, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy darkish ruby / copper brown with airy light tan head. Clear aroma of caramel malt with notes of fruit and touches of coffee. Bitter, roasty flavour with sweet notes of caramel malt and fruity touches. Bitterish and slightly acetic aftertaste with mild sweetish hints. A well-balanced and thoroughly enjoyable Dubbel. Nice.
