Nice dense, creamy head of very fine bubbles. Excellent carbonation that keep the head there for the duration of the drink. Aroma of dark fruits (raisins, dates), caramel and some spices. Color is a dark ruby/brown. Flavor is slightly sour and dry with a bit of chalkiness. Mild spices which are intensified by the alcohol presence. Finish is dry and pasty. Not the best dubbel I have had but still ok.

wulfhere (217) - Billings, Montana, USA - FEB 20, 2004
Bottle. Medium brown, dark leather colored with a light tan head that initially was of large bubbles. The large bubbles subsided to a fine, creamy foam layer that stayed indefinitely. Nose is complex--very malt forward with alcohol, brown sugar, cider, caramel, nutmeg, raisin all present. Too carbonated, thin mouthfeel with maltiness, mutsiness, alcoholic heat, raisin, cardboard, mild sweatsocks. (like a cross between an overcarbonated barleywine and a Gueuze. Finish dry and astringent.
