Bottle from the brewpub
The color is black; the head generous but frothy, and the bottle a bit gushing. Mild aroma of roasted malt, wine barrel, chocolate; simple. Too high carbonation, sign of an unwanted fermentation in the bottle; as a Dubbel, it’s a reasonably tasty beer with some dusty chocolate, and indeed there is a feeling of wine barrel and red wine, light acidity, light ethanol.
