3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a deep dark brown with medium-laced head. Looks delicious, and didn't disappoint with a hefty nose of malt, brown sugar, and dark fruit. Pretty sweet, but not obnoxiously so. The mouthfeel was smooth and balanced, and it went well with a hot dinner of chicken. Really solid. My next session dubbel- as I have bought a slab of these. Who would have thought the Netherlands could take it up to the Belgians like this?

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a huge off-white rocky head that mostly lasts. Body is hazy and sparkling, hue is dark amber. Aroma contains grain, caramel, lemon, raisin, cherry and cassis and ruby port. Flavor is acidic all the way, with a sweet finish. Palate is light to medium, texture is watery and carbonation is soft. Not very complex, not very balanced (too acidic for my taste).
