3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aromas of black cherry, pink cotton candy, and toast. Looks like English black tea, not much head foam. Sweet and fruity, with subtle bitterness. Medium-full bodied, with good carbonation, and a lingering sweet finish.

Had tried the wood aged version, this was my first crack at the regular, thanks to a pitcher at the volleyball club. Pours very, very dark brownish red, slight head that lasts well. Aroma is caramel malt, slight raisin. Flavor matches. Medium to light body, dry. Remarkably popular with the folks the table. Very slight Belgian yeast spiciness as it warmed. Nice stuff.

Gift from dlovell2, thanks! 12oz bottle. Pours dark brown with thin tan head. Yeasty, malty, sweet aroma. Dark malty flavor with hints of spices, toffee, molasses, raisins, sugar. Sweet yeasty finish. Very "dubbel" in flavor due to yeast strains.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Small beige head with modest lacing atop a clear mahogany body. Vinous aroma accented with soft fruit and toffee. Flavor is sweet and malty, moderately yeasty followed by a light floral hop profile. Aftertaste is equally sweet with some spicyness showing up. Medium bodied, decently carbonated mouthfeel with an average length finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of dark fruits, cherry, fig, spice and licorice. Dark amber pour with little head. Chocolate, malt, and the rest of the taste is similar to aroma. Good beer, but not the same level as your usual Belgian dubbels. OK
