Nice brown color with a stable airy head. Well carbonated and true to its style this beer is enjoyable top to bottom. Tastes of nuts, sweet potato, and quality malts. This beer starts and finishes sweet and is well balanced for even flavors throughout.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 3/28/2015. Pours fairly crystal clear reddish brown color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of raisin, plum, fig, banana, clove, chocolate, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, light nuttiness, herbal, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and fruity/spicy yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of raisin, plum, fig, banana, clove, chocolate, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, light nuttiness, herbal, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast spice on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, plum, fig, banana, clove, chocolate, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, light nuttiness, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice dubbel style. All around great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown with a big fuzzy beige head that lasts forever and leaves substantial lacing. Aroma of bubblegum, dark fruits, cloves, toast, and caramel. Taste is moderately sweet and yeasty with some roastiness. Medium body, smooth but a little bubbly. Decent dubbel; not overly sweet.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours out to a generous beige head and brown color. Aroma is funky Belgian all the way: bubblegum, clove, sugars, aged hops, mixed fruit. Flavor is right along with the smell: fruity, estery, sort of roasty, molasses and dusty hops. Mouthfeel is sugary and medium. Overall a classic Bruin. Very satisfying.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This was poured into a chalice.
The appearance was a semi-dark brown color with a slight amber glossiness rolling over into a light orange hue stringing itself along the sides. Light lacing stuck along the glass after the one finger white foamy head died off.
The smell was a glazed over fruitiness rolling all over into an apple to pear to black cherry sort of combination.
The taste was sweet through the fruits. Hmmm... where’s the spice?
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat sharp but non - offensive and decent.
Overall, decent Dubbel but perhaps a tad bit under spiced to me. I probably still would have this again.
