From notes. Bought a four pack at LIDL. Dark brown colour, off white head. Good retention. Roasted malts and sugars on the aroma. Taste follows on the same path, only the malts are more intense. Some caramel too. Medium on the body, average carbonation. Overall, a good dubbel

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Brown in color with dark red hues,
Head light beige with small and medium-sized bubbles. It can not create a big cap, but in the glass remains until the end.
The aroma of spicy, seasoning, there are plum and grassy notes.
Malt flavor, slightly sweet, again just as in the smell of spices and spice accents. The taste is also characterized by slight sourness and "alcohol" bitterness.
The loading medium toward high. Too much carbonation and alcohol, the cons of this Conserdonka. Beer is not bad and certainly deserves attention.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Purchased at Lidl in June 2016 in a 4 pack for 4.99 euros. Head was briefly at 3/4 inch before subsiding. Color in very dark, almost like a stout. Taste is sweet and foamy, with hits of nuts and malt but no alcohol bite or soapy taste. Perhaps a refinement since the last release of it in 2011? Nice enough overall that I might buy it again (unlike most brands at Lidl). .

S: Apple, caramel some malts, quite sweet

T: Malts up front, caramel and chocolate and a hint of apple but there is something a bit soapy to it to

M/D: A bit thin, slightly over carbonated, ABV is fine
