1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tasted on tap at Old Chicago’s in Aurora, Colorado. Cherry wood appearance. Aroma smells like a typical sweet Belgian ale with candy sugar. Nutty brown flavor is more dominant than the Belgian ale taste. Body is pretty thin and actually tastes pretty flat. Below average beer.

I got this in a mixed sampler pack of winter brews form world market. It smelled like farts and it just tasted like bowels. When I went online and found it was listed as a Dubbel I was shocked, this is not a Belgian styled dubbel. This beer is awful, do not buy it.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle, thanks to Greg. Best by 5/27/13. Clear brown / red color. Bit of bubbly off-white head, fades to nearly nothing. Lighter carbonation, light body. Kind of watery, not really a fan of the texture. Sweet taste, kind of a sweet nutty flavor. Some caramel, macro feel to the texture, light spice, maybe some honey. Doesn’t really taste "abbey" at all. Artificial flavors added to attempt a "Belgian" profile just taste artificial. I managed to finish the whole bottle, but I didn’t really enjoy it.
