Taste is caramel, toffee, nuts, alcohol, biscuits and hints of burnt sugar and cream. Full body, medium carbonation. Nice enough barley wine with not too much avant-garde going on here.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
In bottle from BierCab Shop in Barcelona. It meets all the basic features/characteristics of a dubbel. A bit duller in terms of malt profile than I was hoping, and the alcohol burn is more forward than in the better executed examples. Nevertheless a very strong effort.
