Chestnut brown beer with big beige head. Aroma is great and complex: malty sweetness, spicyness, anise, red currants, yeast. Flavour is also complex and nice, slightly sweet that turns in dryer in the end and spicies comes more cleary tastable. Quite easy to drink and carbonation is quite high. Slightly like Regal Christmal, very high quality and typical elements is found from this dubbel.
