Sampled at Ginger Man in NYC about a month back and didn’t take proper notes, but just a really well balanced, delicious beer.

Dark reddish brown, creamy off white head. Smells of malts, some belgian yeast, sweet dark fruits and an hint of alcohol. Taste stays on the same lines, very rich and pleasant. Light hops, sweet finish.

Fair beer. Floral and fruity. Thin head. Lacks body. The wash down is one dimensional. Ok but not earth shaking .

Duft av rosiner, eik og krydder. Mørk brun, nesten sort. Dekkende skum, heng langs kant. Nydelig fruktig smak, krydder og rosin.

Maarten1993 (199) - - MAR 20, 2014
Drank 20-3-2014. Nice dark with some foam. No particular smell, bit Sweetish. Tastes not Strong. Vague chocolate hint in the end. Carbonation is a bit too present. The beer is also too thin and slightly watery in the middle, between the carbonation start and the chocolate end.

Dan269605 (209) - Rocky Hill, Connecticut, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Mahogany brown with hues of red. Big two finger beige head. The aroma shines with dark fruits, raisin, fig, date, brown sugar, caramel, ginger, a little nuttiness. Taste is like the nose but much more subtle. If the flavors could match the boldness of the aroma this would be a standout. The body is a little thin though, but a decent Dubbel.

Mokka medium head, black with a red glow, sweet cherry malty maple sirup smell, medium carbonation medium bitter, malty liquorise caramel taste
