BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brouwerij 't IJ
Netherlands

Style: Belgian Dubbel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
After the ‘Zatte’, this is the oldest beer from Brouwerij ‘t IJ. Natte is classed as a ‘dubbel’, a Belgian category of smooth, dark beers. Because we partly use dark malt, Natte has a reddish-brown colour and a smooth, roasted flavour with earthy tones of brown sugar, nuts and plums. Completed with slightly bitter hops, this is a nicely balanced beer and one of the brewery’s classics.

I've never had an amber ale that tastes so much like a Belgian. Very interesting, like a Belgian with some chocolate and malt on top. Fun, want to try this style more.

Had it at Moos restaurant at Albert Cype market in Amsterdam. Nice head, great nutty aroma, caramel, hops and malt on tongue. Very nice and would certainly buy it again.

Brown reddish colour, with a two fingers head that fades to a thin layer, normal retention. Aroma of red fruits, vanilla, chocolate lqiquor, plums. Full body, sweet liquor palate and good carbonation. Taste of red fruits, rum, cocoa, vanilla.

Drank in Café Kale, Amsterdam.

A: The body is coppery to brown, being more close to cristalline than opaque but kinda mid-way between both. The head is beige with no retention nor lacing.
S: The aroma is yeasty, with some good minor sweet notes coming from the malt.
T: The taste is mostly malty and bit empty for a dubbel. I'd say that the complexity here is not near to my expectations but it's straight.
M: The body is medium to low but the bitterness is quite right.
O: First time drinking a Brouwerij'Tij. It's not a perfect dubbel, far from it, but there's room for improvement. I'll have the tripel next.

Pretty good Belgian double, not so hoppy.
