Bottle: Poured deep blackish brown with a thin tan colored head. Aroma was strong yeast, dark fruit, some bubblegum. Makes a very pleasant mix of dark fruits, sweet malts, nice alcohol warming on the palate. Iím glad that this made a trip to Anchorage, very solid Dubbel!

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Refrigerated 750 cl brown bottle poured into a trappist glass. Pours translucent reddish brown with medium beige head. Tight small bubble lacing, medium body, low carbonation, and nice caramel, ripe fruit, & dark candy sugar aroma. Taste is dark ripe fruit (fig, raisin, and some dates), caramel, some nuts, and dark candy sugar. Some complexity, enjoyably sweet, pretty easy to drink, I like this one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at CGarvie tasting. Old-Skool label! It pours deep amber-brown with a thick yellow-white head. The nose is rather sweet...raisin, sultana, white grape and brown sugar. The taste is earth, light bitterness, spice, citrus, candied peel, raisin, dried fruit, brown bread and cherry. Medium body and fairly high carbonation. Not a whole depth of flavour. Ok.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle, 2006 vintage, shared by Matt at Zach & Mattís tasting. Pours brown with a small foamy tan head. Aroma is booze and dark fruits and spicy yeast. Taste is really beautiful, some sour notes along with some sweet notes, a great balance. Itís like the beer has totally mellowed out with age. This was really enjoyable.
