Bottle thanks to my friend Keith: Poured a caramel brown with a thin tan whispery head. Aroma was fruit and Belgium yeast esters. Taste was sweet malts, doughy yeast, light fruit, and some carbonated burn.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent aproximation to this european typical style.
Brown colour with an excesive beige head due to excesive carbonation.
Malty aroma, caramel and yeast, but not so intense.
Taste is sweet, toasted and caramel malts, some red fruits and raising, little bir spicy.
Medium body. Some alcohol at the end. Long and sweet finish

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
In glass a red coper beer with a unstable head, the aroma has some unpleasant notes coming maybe from the yeast, and revealing se earthy or leather notes, some citric aromas are felt but I think is quite far away from the aromas you should perceive form a dubbel style beer.
In palate it has a medium body, with a really bad balance between malt and hops.

Appearance is near spot on. However, alcohol in the aroma is a bit solventy. Dry malty sweetness up front, dry finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells is sugar cane sweet. Looks fine. The flavor is think sugary malt without much in the finish besides carbonation. Okay.
