3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml single, bottled 12/12/12, purchased at Biggie Wine & Liquor and poured into a Trappist glass. Deep brown appearance with a tan head, active carbonation, incredible retention and thick lacing. Aroma of dark, fruity esters, Belgian yeast, dark malts, candy sugar and light caramel. Similar flavor, rich, malty, dark and fruity with mild to moderate sweetness. Full luscious body, with a creamy, smooth feel and mild carbonation. Quite pleasant on the palate. This is a truly classic Belgian strong ale that goes down easy.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
750ml cork bottle served in a snifter at around 12 degrees:
Pours an opaque brown robe showing a timid reddish hue and a certain cloudiness. The hazel head seems creamy and finely structured. It develops great lacing and a good retention.
The nose is sweet and complex with strong notes of plums, candied fruit and softer hints of cantaloupe or muskmelon and alcohol.
On the tongue, this fine brew explodes into a wild and sweet mixture of milk chocolate, caramel, sugar cane, instant coffee and banana. It feels extra delicate and breaks down on the palate but still keeps its incredible density until it dissolves into a semi-dry finish.
Awesome Belgian brew which represents insanely well what a Dubbel should be.

Thuis geschonken. Donkerbruin bier met een mooie cremekleurige kraag. Geuren van mout, chocola, pruimen. Smaken van mout, caramel, chocola, gedroogd fruit. Een zachte, complexe fruitige smaak, met een licht moutige afdronk. Heerlijk!
