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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma of malts, yeast, some roasty notes. Pours rather dark brown, clear, with a huge and relatively stable head. The taste is sweet, spicy, lightly bitter. Medium body, foamy and perhaps a bit creamy to the tongue, average carbonation, bitter and spicy finish. A nice, enjoyable beer.

Bottle. Forgot how good this dubbel is. Pours a very deep ruby-brown with a short off-white head. Aromas of roasted malts, bananas and licorice. Rather sweet throughout, with light sour notes towards the finish. Very well balanced, with a lively carbonation and a pleasant, not too alcoholic finish. Very nice.
