Pours a dark brown/reddish colour with quick fading foam and little carbonation.
Was rather on the wrong end of booze when tasting this, however must say it was very sweet, close to overly sweet.
Hints of fruits and some yeast.

Bottle at the Brouwcafe, Schevenigen. Poured a clear dark brown with a frothy light tan head. The aroma is yeast, roasted malt, burnt toffee, caramel. The flavour is medium bitter with a smooth yeast, malt bitter palate and a short bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a bubbly mouthfeel. Not my favourite Dubbel but far from being my least favourite.
