3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to shaker glass, pours clear red-brown, quick off white head, light lacing and slight retention. Aroma caramel and raisin. Taste is sweet, slightly sour. Medium body, moderate carbonation, soupy mouth feel. Finishes long. Tasting notes of raisin, brown sugar, toffee, licorice, allspice and bread. Not as sour as I’d like but a solid, interesting take on a Dubbel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark chestnut colored beer with a thin off white head that disappears immediately. Nose of brown sugar, stewed prunes, and toffee. Flavor starts with a surprising nutty almond flavor that gives way to raisins, caramel, and a subtle sourness. Finishing with a mild bitterness, this is a tasty beer.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Brown/copper body with a short off-white head, rapidly diminishing. Mild aroma caramel. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Thin to medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. No Belgian yeast characteristics. Taste of plastic and chemicals dominate resulting in no chance for the malts to come through (as they should in a dubbel). Slick and oily on tongue in the finish. Meh. Any good qualities? Not in this drain pour of a beer.

Very spicy with prominent dried fruit flavor and aroma. Enjoyable dubbel, slightly too much fruit for my liking

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle - pours a dark amber/brown with a slight head that coats the glass. The aroma is mostly sweet prune like malt but also a touch of rich biscuit and herbal notes. A mouthful is slightly thin yet layered with rich ripe fruit malts coupled with a tiny hint of pumpernickel.
