4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Lots of head and a gorgeous red/brown color. Light bubbly mouth feel. Not much by the way of smell. The taste is just a bit tangy with lots of malt. There’s a good hint of various fruit

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep old-penny copper body with a large tan head. The aroma is dominated by fruity yeast, but with a solid bready malt backing. The flavor is a little more interesting, with some pleasant toasty caramel joining the fruits on the nose. Surprisingly strong alcohol presence for 7.0 abv. Fairly thick body with a very dry finish. Solid dubbel, especially for the price.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is my favorite Dubbel. Aromas and flavors bursting with dark fruit such as cherries, figs and raisins with a good malty sweetness as well. Good body and not too cloying. I could drink this beer every day.

Draft at Beer and Bacon. Pours hazy copper with a bubbly beige head. Tastes sweet, nutty, like dried cherries, light alcohol. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like fermenting cherries, nice sourness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Harvest Market
Lightly hazy brownish amber color with a decent sized off white head that dissipates rather quickly. Brown sugar, clove, and pepper yeasty esters dominate the aroma. Hints of dark dried fruits round out the nose. The flavor follows the aroma quite well. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a sweet lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Nice light easy drinking dubbel.
