Tipo: Cerveja, Ale, Belgian Dubbel
Origem: Alken-Maes, Bélgica
The Belgian Dubbel is a rich malty beer with some spicy / phenolic and mild alcoholic characteristics. Not as much fruitiness as the Belgian Strong Dark Ale but some dark fruit aromas and flavors may be present. Mild hop bitterness with no lingering hop flavors. It may show traits of a steely caramel flavor from the use of crystal malt or dark candy sugar. Look for a medium to full body with an expressive carbonation.
25cl into a tulip. Pours a dark cola, deep garnet when back lite. Dense mocha colored head, nice sheet lacing. Aroma is of spicy dark fruits, hints of ginger, clove and port. Taste is fairly strong of raisins and figs backed by quiet roasted caramel. Flavor matches the scent. Aftertaste is short lived. Improves with warmth as vinous qualities appear. Smooth medium bodied mouthfeel.
