3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Clean malty base, with lower malty sweetness that average for an abbey dubbel, light spicy yeast, dark fruity notes, and a clean dry finish. Probably a bit off-style, but in a good way.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can into Trappist glass. Dark ruby brown color with off-white head. Aroma of toasted malt, caramel, candy sugar, dark fruit, citrus and some spices. Taste adds brown sugar, somewhat floral notes and some hop bitterness. Medium body, moderate carbonation, slight bitterness, dry with a crisp finish. Somewhat light for a dubbel but very drinkable, alcohol hidden dangerously well.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2013 A dayum good blend of hops and malt to round out the subtle sweet herbal crisp brew. Full bodied, floral with minimal cereal and a vague hint of resin and slight bitters to compete with the semi-sweet but quite mature nature of this recipe. The alcohol is noticeable and earns my respect.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Pours a clear light brown body with a nice frothy beige head that had excellent retention. The nose is really pretty nice, a great mix of chocolate and dark fruits with a nice level of yeastiness, which is quite unexpected from a canned Dubbel. Smells pretty delicious really. The flavor is just a bit on the thin side, but at the same time, it makes it very easily drinkable. No hint of alcohol, but then I see it’s seven percent, so that’s no surprise now. Light with some slightly sweet dark fruity figgy notes. Finishes with some light chocolate and dark caramel notes. Lighter bodied for the style with light fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice drinkable beer, especially for a style that I don’t always get that into.
