330ml bottle into a tulip. Pours a clear very dark brown, nearly opaque. Topped by a huge billowy off-white head that keeps growing thanks to the abundant carbonation. Some of the best head retention I have every seen. Aroma has lots of dark fruit such as figs and cherries layered on top of wood. Hints of pipe tobacco along with wet grass and hay. A little bit of light cocoa underneath. The flavor really has tons going on. Like in the aroma, dark fruit predominantly up front consisting largely of cherries and figs. A decent woody note is present along with a little bit of must although it nicely compliments the other flavors. Grass comes in next along with a moderate, cleansing bitterness. The beer finishes dry on the palate with bitterness lingering long after all other flavors depart. Overall, a truly complex and amazing beer. There is really so much going on here and the flavors change as the beer warms. One of the classics.

Heidbummer (358) - SCOTLAND - JAN 12, 2017
Bottle from Beerbods. Pours dark with generous foamy tan had. Sweet malty aroma, which is what you get on the taste. Good stuff, but lacking complexity and for a Belgian Dubbel its a little lightweight. Nice but not a big hitter.

Inconsistent beer. Ive had it on its own and its been superb, but drank with Rochefort 8 and it highlighted all the imperfections in this beer. Not dry enough. Not enough phenols. Still, great beer. Dont need to take you through the rest, because its all here.
