Draught at Delirium Café in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Description of the pouring: The tap went out half way into the glass, the guy behind the bar continued to pourfoam into a big glass, waited until the foam had settled and poured it into my beer. About the worst thing I’ve seen, but didn’t feel like complaining today...

Dark red-brwon color, big beige fluffy head.
Smells like a mix of old red wine and vinegar.
Initially very sour taste, faint butterscotch aftertaste. Almost a bit flat and watery, but that might be due to the above described pouring technique.
Low to none bitterness. A bit sweet taste behind the sour taste.

Has it gone bad as it being the last in the keg, or is the beer really suposed to taste this way???

If I wanted bad red wine, I wouldn't buy beer...

Bottles bought in Monterrey, México, with a best before date of June 2005. So I drank these right in the edge!

Pours a dark amber brew, with a wonderful three finger head that lasts a very long time that can be revived with a little swirl of the glass. Good lacing along the sides of my goblet.

Smell is a nice balance of malts and hops.

Taste of malts with a great hoppy and dry finish.

Mouthfeel is creamy.

Drinkability depends on how many I can get. I'll surely buy this one again.

Sampled on tap at la Vaudrée 2 in Liège, in a very nice Ciney glass, a cross between a snifter and a Chimay gobelet, I'm suprised I didn't buy one to bring back home!

Appearance: Dark brownish red, kind of like a dark earthy red wine, but with a huge coffee meringue on top. Beautiful!

Smell: Quite yeasty and hoppy, kinda like Orval. Do they use the same hops? I totally smelled Hallertau.

Taste: Light caramel/candi sugar, a bit metallic maybe, with low alcohol in the end. It went down very easy at 6.5%.

Bottle drank at le Cirio in Brussels: Poured a dark opaque brown colored beer with a nice head with better then average retention. Aroma is a mix of roasted malt and some slight notes of sweetness. Taste is very refreshing with again notes of roasted malt and candi sugar hitting my palate. I would have expected a bit more complexity from this beer to go from good to great. Overall, this is not a bad dubbel but maybe lacking a bit of character.

A deep amber color, served in an unbranded brandy snifter type glass at Le Cirio in Brussels. The predominant flavor in this brew was of dark caramel. This beer is quite sweet, which, is accompanied by lots of general fruitiness, for specific fruit there is perhaps a hint of apricot as well.

The bottle i ha d was one year past its use-by date. Not bad, however a bit unexciting. Brown sugary, slightly burnt caramelized flavour, quite a sweet start, but it dried out a touch towards the end, surprisngly ok, considering how old it was, some spicyness in the finish aswell.

Same earthy mix of hops and yeast though there seems to be a more enhanced earthy flavour with hints of roasted flavours within all of that. Maltiness is superb with a smooth mouth feel.
