4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2014 An exceptional dubble that hides it alcohol through a complex array of flavors. Over ripened and slightly caramelized fruit (bananas, fig, apricot, plum), ginger, fennel esters, and a strong Belgian spiciness play together perfectly, finishing long with a pleasant tartness.

Pours a mirky brown with light brown head. Aroma is soothing. Tastes great and packed with fruity and woody flavors. Heavy beer so probably only a pint can be drunken in one sitting. 8% ABV

Pours an amber color with virtually no head. Aroma is dried fruit and banana. Taste is the same with a pretty good alcohol kick at the end. One of the better interpretations I’ve had.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour is a light amber, clear with a small tan head leaving minimal lacing. Aroma is primarily grapes, a bit biscuit malt. As expected of the style, hops are not present in the beer in any aspect. Palate is off-dry, fairly heavy body. Good mouthfeel, kind of oily. Pretty good beer. Solid dubbel would drink again
