2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle) Pours copper amber. Spicy aroma with tones of clove, soft white pepper, vanilla, hints of anise and cedar but also quite fruity with tones of apples, oranges, bananas and some more subtle candied fruit tones. Light caramelly and toasty malt. Undertones of yeast, honey and some floral notes are also present. Yeast, light spices and some fruit in the flavour with a medium to full malt sweetness of honey, sugar, candied fruits and soft caramel. Apples, oranges and, mild white pepper some clove in the flavour as well. Not sticky but too sweet mouthfeel. Medium bodied. This is not a typical Abbey Dubbel and it’s not even a good example of the style.
