3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark ruby red with a slight tan head that stays around and leaves minimal lacing. Aroma is fairly weak for a Belgian style...with raisin, caramel, toasted malt, and dried fruits on the nose. Has a very smooth, rich, complex flavor, being mainly sweet with notes of tobacco, cocoa, ginger, and dark fruits...lightly bitter. Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, and long, malty finish. This is like a real Belgian dubbel, very good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy burnt copper hue under a thin foamy off white cap. Sweet nutty malty nose with some Belgian toffee, candi sugar, a touch of bubblegum, and a brown malty fruitiness. Flavor is big and rich with a flavorful tone of Belgian toffee, malt syrup, a light bubblegum-ish tone, and a light bit of cherries and dates. Sweet and full and quite malty. Doesn’t taste like an Americanised dubbel. A light bit of boozy caramel throughout.
