Pours a chestnut brown with ruby hues. Deep color that slightly hazed. Fat tan head of creamy foam that falls to a thick cap and wet lace.
Nose is subtle and gentle. It has dark fruit like plum and a light sweet molasses. The grains are toasted and there is a bit of bread. The lightest scent of cocoa can be found but no alcohol. Yeast is earthy and it has a bit of spice. As it warms the spices come out more and the character lets itself be seen only slowly. Touch of clove and a bit of mineral. No alcohol on the nose.
Taste is smooth and gentle. The dried fruit and the chocolate are inseparable and the chocolate is terribly light. It makes you reach a little to find it and that brings you to a delightful middle. Thereís some anise but itís not sharp and some drying alcohol as well as a dry malt character that is a touch bitter in itself. The hops give a light gentle bitter for accent and the finish is earthy and lightly sweet.
The body of this beer is soft and yet itís full without heaviness. The alcohol is sturdy so be careful because it drinks so easily. There is the faintest hint of smoke in the finish and you will take three or four more sips before your are sure. The anise on this is spectacular. I was expecting chocolate and when I realized the anise lightly permeating the drink I was delighted. This beer is like a gentle breath. The bready quality of the malt increases as it warms and this is one fabulous dubbel.

75cl bottle. Pours a clear red color with a large foamy off-white head. Aroma of malt, yeast, caramel. Taste of malt, hops, caramel, fruits - especially something citric and a hint of licorice. Lots of carbonation. Sweet with a bitter aftertaste. Pretty good strong ale.

Average to low carbonation with a creamy mouthfeel. Finishes bitter sweet with the warm sweetness lingering. Very nice beer.
