4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 11.2oz bottle into a chalice. The bottle has a best before date of 16 04 12. The back label also lists the abv at 8%.
Appearance: It has a dark burgundy colored body with a light haze and some yeast floaters. This is capped by a light beige head of frothy light foam. From the pour it left some yeast sediment on top of the head which looks like a dusting of cinnamon. The head hangs on well, slowly fading as I drink and making some nice lacing on the glass.
Smell: There are fruity and estery yeast notes of raisins and apple peel with a slight hint of spice and funk. This is all comes with a nice sweet bready maltiness as well.
Taste/Palate: Wow, this one has good complexity with fruity and spicy yeast, sweet bready and nutty malts. I get notes of cocoa powder blending with notes of walnuts and hazel nuts like Nutella within the sweet bready maltiness. Fruity notes remind me of raisins and as it warms I get some cherry as well. Hops are light and help to balance with mild bitterness and dryness in the finish. The palate has a solid medium body with mild carbonation.
Notes: This beer has wonderful complexity and drinkability.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a murky chestnut brown with fluffy off-white head that reduces quickly to a thin skim.
Nose is sweet malt with prominent cola note combined with fruitiness, not so much a cherry coke as a raisin coke. That follows on the palate, along with nut and honey flavors.
There’s a pronounced spritz and a full, somewhat slick mouthfeel, with slight bitterness on the finish.
Not as complex as some of its siblings, but a fine drink.

Pours a nice dark brown color with a few floaties in it with a good head. Aroma is malty, nutty, toffee, figs, vinous cherry, almonds, toasty. Taste is aggressive malt, nuts, and figs with a background of toffee and toasted almonds. Very good dubbel, very carbonated on the mouthfeel as well for a 6.7% beer, definitely a solid example of the style.
