3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pours deep copper with a beige head that fades rather quickly. Aroma is sweet and yeasty with notes of chocolate covered cherries, lots of anise/licorice, light caramel, and a touch of funk. Flavor is sweet, showing caramel/bread/cookie malt character, candied orange peel, lots of dark vinous fruit (plum, raisin) and a hint of alc on the finish. Overall body is moderate, moderately sweet, and finishes with really light bitterness.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle.
first i’m not so sure what to expect from it so let’s get this going.
After the the bottle is opened I smell some cherry notes and sweet tones... not very appealing to me...the Head is kinda mediocre. Very dark red with brown color, not bad... it actually tastes better than it smells. at first I was worried that it would be very sweet .. but the fruit cake taste is actually well done... It doesn’t holds very well in mouth but this beer is still enjoyable... I wont probably buy that again because it has nothing particular for me.. I may try their other beers though

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Raisin nose with light prune and oatmeal notes. Dark brown, medium tan head. Raisin and plum flavor, less pruney, little breadcrust at midpalate. Subtle smoke and charred oak finish. Good transitions, nice intensity without being a hot mess.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
After having the first two Mons (blonde and white) and having their corks pop on me, I decided to be extremely careful with this one. It was actually fine. Not over-carbonated like the others. Pours a copper colour with a red wine hue. Frothy beige head that is fizzy, with low retention and not much lace, but a small foamy coating over the brew stays. Big nutty yeast nose with some dark fruits (plums, raisins). The body is very carbonated and no burning is felt. Dark fruit flavours with some roasted malts and even hops in the finish. Not bad. Just not really a Dubbel, or at least not a high class one.
