Petrus Dubbel Bruin Ale

Petrus Double Brown Ale is a deep garnet, haze-free brew with lots of carbonation and a two-finger head that’s firm and long-lasting.  It leaves a good deal of Brussels lace as well.  It even leaves lace inside the bottle.  And going back to my opening sentence, once you pour the last ounce it is definitely not haze-free.  The bouquet is sharp caramel, yeasty and malty.  It’s sweet, it’s tart, and there’s something I can’t quite put my finger on.  Licorice?  It’s a bit like sour beer with a dose of fermented fruit.  Not my favorite style, but not a bad beer.  I don’t know if I’m qualified to rate Petrus Dubbel Bruin Ale as I have not a lot of comparisons to go back to, but I’d venture to say it’s a 61/100 Belgian Brown.
