Brouwerij De Brabandere Petrus Dubbel – Dubbel at 7% ABV

Brouwerij De Brabandere Petrus Dubbel Dubbel at 7% ABV (C$3.47 at NLC Stavanger, 330 ml, best before 3-Apr-2019, acquired 30-Sep-2017, reviewed 27-Oct-2017)

Appearance: clear amber brown with a short light beige head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: molasses, dried dark fruit, nuts, mild chocolate, hint of solvent. (6/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Palate: medium body tending slightly watery, moderate-high carbonation, medium duration sweetish mildly bitter lightly tart finish. (3/5)

I’m not feeling this one. A thinnish, sweetish Dubbel, with a hint of solvent on the nose initially. Even as it warms, the aromas and flavours don’t really open up. The tartness in the finish doesn’t really feel intentional, and actually ends up slightly astringent. (12/20)
