Belgian yest aroma with dark fruits and sour notes. Dark brown with light head. Taste is traditional abby style but somewhat flat. Easy to drink for a dark beer. Better than average but not amazing

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
"A nice little beer for a good price, but not really a standout in the dubbel style. cloudy light brown, nice feel and fruity-malty-yeasty flavor and aroma, but nothing that wows."

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
~Rich malty aroma of raisin, prune, caramel, bread, and alcohol. Clovey peppery spice from the yeast.
~ Pours a ruby amberish color with small wispy white head.
~Prune in flavor with raisin and carmel, spice and alcohol.
~medium light bodied with medium low CO2, lingering sweetness.
~ It’s ok. Was expecting more from a dubbel. feels a bit thin and isn’t all that interesting. Still drinkable and enjoyable
