Tap at Dexters. Burgundy brown, glowing. Creamy off-white head. Clove raisiin prune aroma. Kind of an odd Dubbel for sure. Easy drinking, but falls a little short.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from three stars. Pours brown with a thin khaki head. Malty on the nose. Sweet and syrupy on the tongue. It’s certainly not brewed to style. It could be worse.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A serious let down. I remember when I first tried this on draft I wasn’t impressed. I have two bottles, which I laid down. Just cracked one almost a year to the day of when I got them. Time did not mellow out this beast. Aroma was mostly belgian yeast, some malt. Flavor was mostly belgian yeast, and booziness. The booziness did not compute with the 7.6% abv. Perhaps this was stronger? Regardless, not a fan.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Dexters, pours a clear dark copper with a creamy head and a little bit of lacing, the aroma actually reminds me of soap water that has a little bit of fruit coming through, awful, the flavor is extremely hot on the front end from the abv and there is a little bit of dark fruit in the finish, pretty much all over the place, ugh.

Shared at the Sunday After Thanksgiving Tasting 2012. Clear brown pojur with decent tan head. Notes of raisin, molasses, and nuttiness. Sweet and malty almost to the extreme. But also something a little off about it. maybe a hint of vegetal? Meh.
