jercraigs (8220) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2015
2015-03-04. Very dark brown-black body with a small tan head. 3+ Aroma of sweet malt, light cocoa and burnt sugars. Flavour is similar, sugary brown sugar, light tang. A bit odd overall, not really to my tastes. Smooth average bodied palate, moderate carbonation. Bottle shared by solidfunk.

Homer321 (2434) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Bottle to snifter. Pour is deep, deep red, to brown; minimal off white head. Aroma is grapey and oxidized. Not sure how long this one has been cellared. Some dried fruit aroma in there too. Taste is slightly winy with a red grape flavor, prickly on the tongue. Moderate papery oxidation. Ok, but even fresh, I doubt it would impress me much. Very thin, a little alcohol, not much going on.

This is distinctly different from most Belgian dubbels I’ve tried. It had a murkier flavor, rather than the brightness of a classic dubbel like Duvel. It’s not a bad beer at all, but I was expecting something fresher and cleaner tasting. There was something odd about the bitterness and sweet that I felt wasn’t balanced, and the mouthfeel was more syrupy than I would have liked.
