4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Popped off the cork and a white smoke poured out, like fog over a moonlit swamp. The smell hit me in the face from two feet away. If smells were colors, this would be purple - -a deep, sweet smell almost like grape juice that’s been left in the sun. The liquid glugs out a deep orangey brown with a giant pale bubbly head. Champagne bubbles surge up from the depths. This is a good-looking beer. The flavor starts with sweet grape/raisin flavor, while prunes and other dark fruits are also apparent. There’s a slight alcohol warmth, while a light bitterness hits in the aftertaste and a sour tanginess lingers on the sides of the tongue -- my favorite part of this beer, along with the very creamy mouthfeel. It took a while to get around to swallowing, because I couldn’t stop swishing this beer around.

Bottle share on the buse. Light raisin nose, some general malt sweetness. Taste is a light malty sweetness with a touch of breadiness. Pretty solid.

Thanks to whoever brought it... Fran? Ogi? Dunno. But thanks anyway! :) Poured a dark amber-brown body with a small off white head. Aroma... yeah, definitely raisins, heavy maltiness, light alcohol... pleasant overall. Ok, 1-dimensional fine malty taste, vaguely fruity, just a touch of those raisins again, (something not legible). Ok dubbel, not too heavy, not too light, not too complex, but a nice, tasty beer. Would go for it if it wasn’t too expensive, like this... there are better choices.
