3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Yeast, toasted malt nose. Dark ruddy brown color with a foamy biege head. Light sweet caramelly malt body, hint of raisin and maple syrup. Dry woody end, lingering pepperiness. Thin and quick, not bad but certainly not good.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (330ml). Beer of Belgium Gift pack 4of6. Poured murky reddish-brown with a this fizzy-creamy-foamy beige lasting head. Aroma of sweet fruit, sweet roast malt, even a bit creamy - not terribly smooth, but nice elements. Taste is ripe apple, alcohol bitterness, mild roast malt, a bit spicy - mildly sweet but a bit harsh in the finish. Fizzy, slightly metallic mouthfeel - almost burnt by the bottom of the glass. If I weren’t partial to the style, this would be 3 or lower.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark red colored, big beige head. Sweet and cherry aroma. Pouring carbonation. Sweetness, bubble gum, cherries in flavor, mild alcohol in aftertaste, sweetness lasts. Too sweet and bubbling brew for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle from whole foods. aroma is caramel, mollasses, bread. looks like the picture...dark brown, huge head that sticks around. medium/light body...much less heavy than expected for the style. flavor is definitely malty, some chocolate, ..this is very carbonated, and it makes the finish less sweet. good, but could be a little more malt complexity.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nice cloudy brown body with ruby glints, moderate carbonation and a thick beige pillowy head. Interesting malty aroma with fruity (plum, dark cherries), bready, and yeasty notes. Taste is a bit less complex: it is mainly hoppy with bready hints. It ends with a decent bitter finish and leaves a pretty fair warming effect. Average Dubbel.

Murky brown color, small head. Veggie sellery nose. Boring, sligthly sweet malt taste - not much going on here- but still ok.

Pours brown with a large off-white head. I swear I saw one bubble dancing above the rest as though suspended from a spider’s web. The weirdest thing I’ve ever seen. Yeasty and bready aroma, with dark fruits like raisins and prunes. Kind of hot on the nose. Harsh carbonation makes it hard to distinguish flavors. Some dark fruit. The finish is sweet and yeasty.
