Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Clear nut brown, small head. Sweet and caramelly with medium body. Sticky and syrupy, simplistic and shallow. Like a parody of a US style attempt at a dubbel.

28/08/2011 33cl bottle @ home - BB: 9/6/12 (2011-412)
Little cloudy red brown to purple beer, beige creamy head, pretty stable, somewhat adhesive. Aroma: fruity, caramel, dried fruits, sweet cherries, chocolate milk, strong alcohol, raisings, bit vinous even, wood. MF: little carbon, very thick creamy texture, medium body. Taste: roasted malts, mocha, bit of caramel, fruity, touch of banana, soft bitterness. Aftertaste: citric acidity, alcohol playing on the tongue, more caramel, dry bitter ending. Spot on! This beer combines the typical caramel sweetness and dried fruits which are key for a dubbel, but also keeps it interesting enough through the sour and bitter hops.
