Dubbel, 6.5%

A British take on a Belgian style beer, with a sweet base and moderate bitterness. The colour might suggest a very dark beer, but this is mainly coming from the use of candied sugar, which gives a rich and sweet flavour, with a touch of bitterness. Hopping is low, but typical for the style, and helps to take the edge off the sweetness nicely. This is not an extraordinary beer by world standards, but I’d be happy to have it again sometime.

Overall score: 6.5/10

Tripel, 8.5%

Comments: A dark beer, in the European overbrewed style. Quite aromatic, with the belgian wheat sourness coming in clearly, and not much in the way of roasted malt flavours. The malt is the main flavour here, however due to the high alcohol and triple fermentation, the beer is not overly sweet, even with the caramel and toffee characters which come quickly to the fore. I can’t really detect much hop, but the malt is enough to keep the flavour going to the end. A very good beer, but I think I prefer the Delirium tremens.

Overall score: 7.0/10
