Look is Dark dark brown. Off white head. Aroma is barley, cherry, plum. Doesn’t jump out at you. Taste is molasses, lots of malt,...aftertaste is burnt sugars. Feel is heavy, sticky. Good warming winter beer.

Bottle: Sweeter than I anticipated it being, nice full mouthfeel - was expecting more of the yeast character than I get from it.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thick red pour, hardly any head. Nose is roasted malt. More sweet than bitter. Middle is strong toffee and faint dried fruit. Finish is still fairly sweet. Not bad, but also not an abbey ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a dark mahogany color with a grayish head of foam. The aroma has caramel, candi sugar, dates, cinnamon. The taste is mostly sweet, but does get dry and a little earthy upon the swallow. On the verge of ashy as well. Thicker mouthfeel. Moreso than I was expecting. Low to medium carbonation. Decent dubbel, but won’t knock anybody’s socks off.
