Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff mai-13: Aroma og smak av mørk kandis, rosier (som er brukt i bryggingen), fiken, svisker og kandiserte frukter. Sherrypreg uten å være for søt. En ret dejlig øl i min favorittstil! Send flasken hit igjen...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear brown with a pale head. Aroma is raisins, honey, caramel. Slightly sticky mouthfeel, sweet on the palate. Taste is raisins, caramel, figs. I was a little disappointed by this - it wasn’t a great example of a Dubbel and given that they say "Ale Brewed With Raisins" on the label I was expecting the raisin character to be a little more forward.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Jason + Elizabeth. Pours a medium brown, slight off-white head. Aroma presents as very sweet, sugary, maybe brown sugar or cane sugar? Body is medium, finish very abrupt, perhaps even disappointingly so. Not much warming, and just kind of meh overall, especially for the style.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bread, molasses, and raisins in the aroma. Flavor is sweet and bready with fruit and caramel. Finish has more hop bitterness than you usually get in a dubbel, but it balances things nicely. Love the style, love the beer.
