Bottle- Poured a cloudy brown color ale with an off-white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of candi sugar and nice rich Belgian style malt is quite enjoyable. Taste is also a nice enough mix between candi sugar with some notes rich sweet Belgian malt and light dry figs. Body is full with limited filtration and great carbonation with no apparent alcohol.

JDBaker11058 (1737) - Maryland, USA - JAN 26, 2016
appearance: deep clear ruby brown, short dense tan head. aroma: strong nose of candi sugar, raisin, and port. taste: malty and very sweet, with lots of candi sugar, toffee, cherry, raisin, fig, some molasses and chocolate. finish: lingering smooth sweetness, a hint of brandy, lasting candi sugar and some general yeasty spice. notes: I quite enjoyed this. Smooth, rich, and sweet. Not as yeasty-spicy as a traditional dubbel, and it felt like a double serving of candi sugar. Certainly not an everyday beer, but a good one. Bottle from Sarah for Beerdvent 2015.
