Many thanks for this beer to tderoeck. Piwo ma srednia piane, szybko opada, barwa brazowa w calosci metniste. Zapach wyrazny miodu i likieru czekoladowego. W smaku nieco przypomina Flamandzkie czerwone Ale, ale zdecydowanie jednak wchodzi tu miod i jest dominujacy, wyczuwalem wafle posmarowane czekolada, nieco drzewnej nuty tez bylo ale za slodkie, likierowate w dodatku beczka po Porto dolozyla slodyczy. Zdecydowanie ma za mocny slodki profil to piwo. Nie dla mnie.

Bottled 330ml (Beergium)
Dark brown color, small beige head and some lace. Dark fruits, prunes and caramel with some wood in the nose. Medium to full-bodied. Sweetish, portwine-like notes, prunes, candy sugar, raisins, "abbey dubbel yeast". Short finish with light metallic notes. Quite robust dubbel. Not too bad.

Vignale (3641) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 5, 2017
Flaska från belgiumina box. Mahognyfärgade vätska med fint sediment och medelhöft skum. Söt doft av marsipan, russin och mörkt socker men också lite acetisk limdoft. Fin smakbild med söta russin, marsipan, plommon med lite kärnbeska, en lätt syrlighet i bakgrunden. Bra balans. Riktigt trevlig och ganska komplex dubbel.

Thanks the Hertie for the bottle! A gusher! Pours a hazy dark brown with orange highlights with a tan head. The smell is cherries, roasted malt, chemical odor, dark fruit. The taste is brown sugar, dark fruit, licorice, ending dry and fruit. Light/medium with average carbonation.

Smells funky, tones of sour candies. A flat palette dominated by funky sour tones and some sweetness in the background. Not very pleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The scent reminds me of sour candy mixed with a hint of oatmeal. The taste is a bit of a disappointment. Bland and the sour notes doesn't do it any favors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a beige to brown head with candy and cinnamon aromas and light malts. Amber to brown colored body. Sweet and pleasant in mouth with medium length. Typical Belgian dubbel but oak barrel is faint. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slightly hazy rust color with tan head. Aroma has tart fruits like raspberries and cherries with a hint of balsamic vinegar. Taste starts with dark sugar, caramel, slightly sweet and fruity at first but finishes with a bitter, earthy note. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall it’s quite good, complex, yet balanced.
