4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.75l bottle. Served in a trappist glass. Cork was very hard to get out. Appearance: Opaque black, lots of visible carbonation, sparse beige head. Aroma: GRAPES, wow. Other notes of cotton candy, caramel, grass. Palate: Thick bodied, but not like a stout. Very fizzy. Not much of a finish. Taste: Slightly sweet. Not as grape-y as the aroma suggests. No bitterness here at all. Fairly good be. Super easy to drink for this style.

Dark brown body with off white head, some nice lacing. Bready and dried fruit aroma. Dried fruit taste. And you can definitely taste the caramel here as well. Overall could be a bit more intense, but itís a nice dubbel.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle BB Jun 2015. Pours mostly black with a cm of foamy off-white head. Doesnít look that great really. Smell is burnt plastic, cranberry, some alcohol comes through. Body - medium, foamy, a touch of spritzy carbonation. Taste - dates up front, there is a strange coffee-like flavour, its as though something savoury has been dipped in toffee, bubblegum, dry alcoholic finish. OK.

Pours a dark brown with a slight reddish tint. Nose reminded me of a sour ale. Taste of malt, bitter chocolate. Ok - not a huge fan of the style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep red-brown color with tan head that had great retention. Nose had a terrific earthiness with a really faint hint of chocolate. Mouthfeel was delicate and flavor had a nice soft fruitiness with almost no carbonation. Not my favorite version of the style, but I would recommend it to someone thatís a fan of the Belgian double.
