3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium chestnut brown with a small (less than 1 finger) off white frothy head that quickly diminished, leaving behind a light scattered film and having fair spotty lacing.
The aroma had a bold fruity ester (raisons and prunes) right off the bat along with a dark bread malt and a musty Belgian yeast with a touch of brown sugar and a mild vinous scent.
The taste was malty sweet with a slight yeast presence from the start and pretty much was the case throughout, with the finish being rather fruity and mildly tart with light alcohol presence at the end. The flavor faded quickly off the taste buds with just a hint of dried fruit and a mild alcohol warming sensation left behind.
Mouthfeel was almost medium in body with a mildly dry texture and a prickly carbonation.
Overall this was a very enjoyable yet mild Dubbel, with an avid aroma and a somewhat subdued yeast intensity in the flavor... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep dark brown hue, very opaque. Aroma is sweet deep dark musk and flowers. Falvor is much saltier than expected, more like an old ale than a dobbel, and also deep than a dubbel. Very good, especially if present as soemtihng other than a dubbel.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, hazy amber pour with tiny head that didn’t stick around for long. Aromas and flavor are fruity malts, spicy yeast, Belgian funk, brown sugar, rust and some dark fruit flavors. Dont think this was old but had some oxidized notes. Lighter body for a Belgian dubbel. Another average or slightly below offering from FF.
