4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A sniff of toffee, a nice sweetness not overpowering. Taste is light fruity / citris and considering the aroma, its suprisingly nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft in Belgium. Reddish brown with a foamy beige head. Aroma of dark fruit, toffee, and spicy yeast esters, very light alcohol. Flavor is prunes and caramel with some spicy/earthy yeast, alcohol well hidden in the taste. Medium body with smooth carbonation. Iíve had this before in the bottle but it was killer on draft.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy brown with spongy beige head, caramel-roasted malt aroma, fizzy, caramel flavor, long finish. One of the best abbey dubbels I have tasted.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cherrywood, opaque, looks like a good accompaniment to a real fire, which is always good; not much of a head; typical Belgian yeast aroma - banana and solvent; sweet flavour of red berry fruit which develops nicely as the beer warms; high carbonation; fruitiness lingers with some nice earthy hops in the finish; another decent but far from outstanding Belgian, bit too fizzy if anything.

NYC Trip Beer #11. Tried out Vol de Nuit in the West Village and was really disappointed. All Belgian list, but nothing rare or outside the mainstream. Seems like a cool concept with poor execution. Why add this information? Because I think atmosphere can add or detract from a raterís impression of a beer. Poured a deep amber. Sweet yet bland flavoring. This beer seems like a run-of-the-mill Dubbel. Bottle - Vol de Nuit - New York, NY
