Reddish brown appearance with a thick off white head. Aroma is fruity with a slight yeastiness. Flavor is very sweet with a strong malt presence. Strong fruitiness up front with a mild finish, not cloying at all. Would definitely recommend.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Moderate to heavy cookie, nutty and caramel for the malt, moderate herbs and orange for the hops, light to moderate dough and meat for the yeast, with notes of raisin and brown sugar. Head is small, frothy, beige with fair slippery lacing and good legs and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky medium brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly sweet, acidic and bitter. Palate is medium to full, creamy with a lively carbonation. A rich, malty Abbey Dubbel, with distinctive hop and yeast presence.

Huge airy head that dissipates extremely quickly. Subtle banana aromas. Raisin dominates the flavor with a sweet booziness that doesn’t overwhelm. Repeatable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewery in San Marcos.
Pours deep amber with a white head that soon reduces but leaves nice patterns of sticky lacing on the glass.
Aroma: intriguing fruity (dark fruit) aroma with a some medium malt base and alcohol esters
Flavor: slightly more yeasty/funky than the aroma, but not challenging to drink. Good sweet/bitter balance.
Feel: near medium body; medium, lightly crisp carbonation.
O: lacks the complexity and well hidden ABV of fine Belgian versions.
