3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A - pours a filtered mahogany brown with nice red edges and a quickly disappearing slight reddish tan head.
S - malts, astringent and plums are clear up front. Alcohol and muddled ripe fruits, overripe banana and fennel, mix in the middle. Banana bread and other dough notes throughout.
M - smooth and mild with low carbonation. Light to medium bodied with a medium palate.
T - lots of bread and banana to begin the flavor. These are followed by faint alcohol and watery caramel malts that don't make much of an impact given the style. Sweet dark fruits with various spices and pepper act as the supporting cast. The end is a return to the watery malt notes and faint dark fruits.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 13C. Clear dark brown with a good coat of beige head that lasts in a Westmalle glass. Aroma of plums, prunes, raisins, dough, caramel, banana, cloves. Medium bodied, creamy texture, moderate carbonation. Sweet with red fruits, some banana, brown sugar. Spices (unfortunately) don’t wait until the gently bitter finish. Has nice fruity liveliness but wants for grunt (or for this sort of thing, I suppose that’s lacks majestic presence) underneath. Alcohol well integrated and mostly hidden. Pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Deep ruby, moderate frothy tannish head, spotty lacing.   Big bready nose.   Some dark pitted fruit, assuming its mainly plums.   Heavy breadiness, semi-sweet, dark pitted fruit galore.   Warming, but
not alcoholic.   Almost could use some more sweetness to counteract the huge whole wheat breadiness.   Not big in body either, seems somewhat moderate.   Clean finish, bready, plums, dark pitted fruit.   Just feels like
to me to be a really big Abbey Dubbel.   Tasty, very flavorful, but needs more sweetness.
