3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2oz Bottle. The pour was a muddy dark brown with a nice reddish hue around the edges and an average (1-2 finger) tan creamy head that had great retention pretty much lasting throughout, thus creating some excellent sheets of sticky lacing.
The aroma starts with a roasted sweet bread malt and moves on with an earthy somewhat leathery yeast. In the back ground I sensed notes of milk chocolate, molasses, brown sugar, some dark fruit (raisons and figs), a hint of smoke and a mild winey alcohol presence.
The taste started with a nice malty sweetness and had hints of chocolate and brown sugar, progressing with a good bit of dark fruit and a slight alcohol finish. The flavor had a decent duration following the swallow with a sweet fruity taste fading as a mild creamy chocolate alcohol flavor settled on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was a strong medium in body with an extremely smooth and creamy texture and an almost flat carbonation.
Overall this was an exquisite tasting brew, one that possessed a nice sweet malty taste with a really intense creamy feel. This hid the moderately high ABV extremely well and made a pleasure to consume...

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Murky brown body with a thick beige head. Nice lacing. Aroma of brown sugar, prunes and raisins. Flavour of wood, caramel and lightly roasted malt. Thin body with a slightly sticky texture. Overly fizzy carbonation. For me, Westmalle Dubbel has more depth of flavour, and a much better mouthfeel, but this is still a very good Abbey Dubbel.

Een dubbel dat net niet goed genoeg is vind ik. Nochtans ben ik fan van bruine bieren, maar van deze niet

750 ml bottle. Pours hazy brown with tall, long-lasting, foamy off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of plums, cherries, caramel, funky yeast and brown sugar. Body is full and crisp. Spicy yeast, caramel malt, plums, raisins, brown sugar, minerals and herbal hops fill the mouth. Finish is long and spicy. Nice Dubbel.
