2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I had given this one to Dan for Christmas. Pours a dark red /brown color with small off white head. Aroma of slight fruit and malt and a little toastiness. Some malty flavors with a little bit of carmel and nice toasty flavors and weird sort of acidity and sharpness that is out of place. a little thin too. Thanks for Sharing Dan.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tasted on 10/27/11 from a 500mL bottle purchased at Binnyís South Loop. Pours a nearly opaque dark amber with just a tint of light allowed through, and a thick tan head that slowly recedes to rocky lace, leaving uneven lacing along the inside of the glass. The nose is a really weird, hot, grape juice, date, and fig aroma. The flavor is the same strange grape, vinous, date, and prune juice as the nose. The body is light, with lively, fizzy carbonation, and a short, but hot prune, date, and grape juice finish.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours dark with tan head. Dark sugars and chocolate dominate the nose. Beer is thin w/ not much on the palate outside of a faint sweetness that can not be identified much more than that. Alcohol is surprisingly not present, but seems fitting with this beer as very little is present anyway. Good effort & glad to have a chance to try, but definitely not a replacement for a traditional Dubbel.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
500mL bottle. Poured deep mahogany into goblet with champagne like head diminishing to nothingness. Aromas of nuts, yeast and caramel. Body on the thin side. Tastes not well balanced, not sure if it is the rice or buckwheat, but just tasted off to me.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours reddish black with lacy beige head. The aroma is polyurethane and yogurt-covered raisins. The flavor is much the same, strong polyurethane, some raisin, a little bit of vanilla. This is pretty hard to drink.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Grape/dark fruit in the aroma, the appearance is dark amber and shows the secondary fermentation in the head. The taste is malty and shows again a flavor leaning towards grapes/dark fruit. The body, though is relatively thin. A good but not great due to the body Belgian ale.
