Really nice rich red colour. Smooth taste considering the alcohol percent. Head lasted throughout the glass. Little pricey at the LC though $5 per bottle

Back around 20+ years ago when I first discovered this I thought it was godly. Have not had it in a few years. WHAT the hell happened?!
330 ml bottle about 6 mos old. Slightly hazy copper color. Aroma was light fruit and yeast. Flavor was not much differant. Had a hint of spice in the tale end of the finish. Mouthfeel was a bit watery. Highly quaffable tho unremarkable. Not like it used to be.

Nice dubbel. Yeasty , alcohol, etc. Lots of goodness going on here. Not as good as the Blance or Bleu but still quality.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Yeast, alcohol, coriander, bitter oranges and cherries in the sweet malty aroma. Opaque, burnished copper coloured with thick, off-white, lasting head. Sweet, brown sugar, caramel malt flavour. Light fruity bitterness cuts the sweetness towards the finish. Medium-full body with nice round mouthfeel. Bottle. Thanks OKBeer!

Pours a medium brown with a lasting head. Aroma is unpleasant and reminds me of baby spit-up. Flavor is yeasty and sweet. Has a thick mouthfeel.

Big bottle at the Electric Factory (another great value). In your face, overpowering frothy pour. Once settled, I detect a hint of earthy and mustiness in the aroma. Dryer and thinner than the Rogue Dead Guy.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
subtle not-so-frothy head from the larger bottle. It’s the first brew I’ve uncorked which gives it immediate bonus points! Smells delicious and tastes even more fabulous of a fruity bouquet. Delicious!

Grand frothy white head on top of a clear pour that is a tarnished bronze color. Fabulos-o aroma! It made my mouth water with a beautiful boquet of malts, yeasts, fruit, and citrusy hops blossoming in my nose. Long lasting flavor with a pleasing hoppy finish. A slight tart twinge of fruit was a fun...overall well balanced. A savory brew.
