Bornem Dubbel

The bottle of the beer

Type: Dubbel

Alcohol: 8.00 % abv

Rate: 3/5

Country: Belgium


After you poured, you see it is heavily carbonated, it looks like a coke with a bigger head. The boiling-like effect causes the whirling movement of a lot of small pieces of yeast that were inside the bottle. Anyway, the carbonation fades away quickly, leaving the yeast floating still on the surface. The beer looks very dark, it has a bitter taste due to the hop, that was added in big quantity in order to stabilise the yeast in the bottle, so that the beer could keep on fermenting in the bottle. The smell has no particular aroma but a slight remembrance of cinnamon. It's a very particular beer, but without such an enjoyable taste.
