Bottle at De Heeren van Liedekercke, shared with Anke and Pieter.Zilverenmaan (274) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - OCT 25, 2017
Pours hazy dark brown with a small, frothy, tan head. The aroma contains caramel, brown sugar, dark fruits, hops & spices, dark chocolate, some herbs. It tastes medium caramel-like sweet and medium hoppy, even herbal bitter, with a slightly dry finish. Medium/light body, slick texture, fizzy carbonation. A rather 'discreet' Dubbel, though well made.
Nice one, not too sweet, some caramel, faintly acidic red currant. More a stout than a dubbel maybe: some roasted malts and vanilla, light bitterness, creamy. Carbonation a bit too strong. Subtle but clean and tasty. Piepenhenrich (1230) - Steinbach, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2017

Bottle from Speciaalbierpakket. Aroma is dark malt, caramel, with sweetish dried dark fruits, raisins, yeast, and forest fruit jam. Flavour is sweet and mildly bitter. Body is medium. Not a bad Dubbel, lacks candysugar which is a good thing, with an atypical take on the dried fruits you expect from a Dubbel. jvhemert (438) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 22, 2017

Dark brown beer. Typical special witkap taste. It is made with mains so I think that is the special taste. It makes sense. SimonBlok (763) - GRONINGEN, NETHERLANDS - FEB 23, 2016
