BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brouwerij 't IJ
Netherlands
brouwerijhetij.nl

Style: 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.

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.

11.2 oz bottled bought at Hopleaf, Chicago. Heard some bad pub on this one and bartender actually didnt seem to be a fan, but still wanted to try.

I was impressed.

A: Almost brown color, caramel like. Decent head retetention and considerable carbonation that lasted. Nice lacing.
Boring, plain bottle- good sign.

S: Chocolate and caramel malts but definitely some hops there. Good aroma, enticing.

T: Not overly Belgian here in that I really tasted and enjoyed the ample hop presence. The yeast and grassiness a great match of the flavor. Dried fruits matched very well by the hop flavors in the back.

M: Crisp as can be. The spicy hops lent extremely well into the feel.

D: Highest of ratings here given the low abv and the pleasant balance of hops and belgian grassiness. A bit pricey but worth it.

Great beer with a balance of deep roasted malts and bitter hops. Had this from the tap in Amsterdam at the source and really enjoyed with a plate of smoked sausage and cheese. It had a darker amber and chestnut color

Pours a fogged brown. Nose is just like pineapple juice right out of the can. Slight funky cherry wood there as well. Reminds me of a flanders…hmmm…and maybe that is what this is. I have no idea of knowing since I am writing this up and not just entering it into BA. Flavor is that woody cherry character. The wood stays very prominent and leaves a lasting impression on the palate. Feel has a lot of carbonation, but not overly done. Liquid is well bodied. Very drinkable, but again with this brewery: worth the price? Seems a bit high to me. Could be just where I bought it though.

Had this beer at the brewery in Amsterdam. Served on tap, cool in small taster snifters.

A-brown, murky topaz body and an off white head.

S-strong grain and spice presence.

T-spicy, yeasty, nice alcohol and cereal finish.

M-medium and somewhat boozy

D-Very nice. Good to see something like this in Amsterdam given what is commonly found. I would drink this again.

A – Good and dark tea like colouration with a baby finger of tight foam that leaves very little lacing in the glass. Zero evidence of carbonation,

S – Malt notes very apparent along with toffee and biscuit. Good hop smells; apple and plum notes.

T – Good hop and malt balance up front. Some mild toffee sweetness balanced by apple, plum and some rhubarb flavours. Some tea like flavouring in the after taste.

MF – Great body in the mouth and medium linger. There are some boozy notes and nice coating on the tongue.

O – Very well balanced and extremely drinkable. This is a pretty good Dubble with plenty of flavour without too much solvent taste. The malt flavours in here are pretty nice but to be honest they are not the best I have ever come across. However this is good enough for the style.
