3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle. Pours dark brown with a small head, no lacing. Very nice aroma of plum, anise, bread, cherries, alcohol, and toffee. Taste is medium sweet with a light bitterness and lightly sour. Very soft on the palate, not highly carbonated, medium body, sticky texture, and sweet finish. This is an above-average Belgian dubbel due to the nice aroma and taste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle, poured into a long tulip glass.
Brown color, a bit cloudy. One finger head that reduces to nothing.
Smell is dominated by dark, sweet malt. Quite boozy.
Taste is on the sweet side with notes of brown sugar and liquorice.
Body feels medium and fizzy.
Overall it was a decent brew. I wasn’t very impressed but I enjoyed it.

Bottle from It’s An Eco Life Inc. (Ontario) unfiltered amber with medium beige head that lasts. Decent carbonation. Smells like dark fruits and caramel malts. Flavours of fig, prune, and dates. Roasted malts and some licorice round it off. Short but pronounced bitter end. Excellent brew from an old recipe.
