3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reddish-brown color, dense tan head. Aromas are inviting: dark fruit - raisons & plums, bakings spices - cloves & coriander. The flavor follows through with more intense spice and sugary sweet malt. Very light bodied for the style. Semi-dry finish. Well hidden alcohol. A little off or missing something in the aftertaste. It might just be fermented out too much for a dubble.

Aroma: Dark fruit, caramel, hints of spices
Appearance: Dark brown with a reddish tint. Nice fine white head.

Palate: Medium, lively mouthfeel. Warming mouthfeel and finish. Rich, but stops short of chewy.

750 ml bottle shared by Tmoney99 (2011 notes). Pours a lightly hazy caramel brown color with a large off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel, lightly toasted, mild spices, with dark fruit. Not overly complex, but worth trying.
