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.

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.
