A reddish-brown abbey ale brewed with dark malts. The secondary fermentation gives a fruity aroma and a unique spicy character with a distinctive aftertaste. Secondary fermentation in the bottle. (Serving temperature: 8-10ºC)

Picked up at Whole Foods in Austin, Tx. Murky dark orange appearance with a frothy beige head. Good thick lacing - looks like a Belgian should. Enticing aroma of spearmint, chocolate, and tea. Flavor has some of the same accents with the spearmint showing through the strongest. Faint notes of chocolate as well. Mouthfeel has a bit of carbonation, but it feels right in this one. Overall, an excellent Dubbel.

Sharp, sweet nutty caramel aroma with some alcohol. Opaque brown/ruby color with a dense tan head. Tart and sweet in flavor with a slender body. Somewhat dissapointing in complexity though the flavors of plum, cocoa and caramel are pleasing. A bit oxidized.

this brew pours brown. it’s sweet flavored, with a nice, malty nose. A decent Belgian, but there are better out there.
