3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml Koningshoeven Dubbel bottle @ Hamilton’s shared with my pal Josh in from San Fran. Pours dark ruddy brown with a 1 finger tan head. Candy sugar aroma, slightly sweet. Taste is sweet and malty with a slightly cloying candy sugar taste. Pretty good, not so hot overall, has some kind of taste that really doesn’t fit me all that well, but got better as it warmed as most belgians tend to.

Bottle: Ruby mahogany color, light head and lacing. Nose of metal, starchy sweet malts and a yeasty doughy essence. The flavor is nice and malty, much more turbinado/jaggery esque int he flavor than in the nose. The finish is plenty chewy, but is still stale and imported tasting. A bit oxidized.
