4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This has a dark brass/brown coloring with a foamy head and good lacing. There is a light malty-yeast aroma. It is rich and frothy with a complex flavor - sweet chocolatey-fruity malt gives way to a light hoppiness and a pleasant tingle. This is robust and interesting. This lives somewhere between the old Belgian abbey and the American brewpub. It is also nice strait from the bottle. My appreciation of this one has been growing.

Pretty middle of the road stuff for a real Belgian dubbel. Principal impressions were of sweet chocolate and prune juice and raisins.
