2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
"Hoppy Belgian dubbel." Best before date June 2009. Pours a vivid rust red, topped by tawny marshmallow crème. Spicy-fruity aroma features plum and chocolate, grape flavored gum, mace, and wood. There is a sharp chemically scent I was going to call "artificial cilantro", but a more accurate name is "spray-on oven cleaner." Rather timid flavor... candied fruits, marzipan, and "burnt aloe" spicyness. Lots of quote marks in this rating. Thinnish, wheaty mouthfeel. Overall very restrained, and VERY weird.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Don’t remember how it pours. Aroma of grapes, caramel, raisin and light toast. Tastes maltier with toast, caramel, grapes, and a kinda tart yeast presence. Finishes toasty but still it’s fruitier than I would like. Medium bodied.
