I really liked this and was impressed, as overall it is very close to the best in the style, however, something seems to be missing, I can’t quite put my finger on it. Color and appearance are right on, aroma too, although a tad sweet. taste is also plums / prune juice, again sweet. Short finish, just sweetness. It might be the yeast that could be a bigger part of this beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a 22oz bomber into a tulip glass. Pours semi cloudy brown with amber head and lace. Aroma of rich malts, caramel candy, bubblegum. Moderate carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of dark malts, minerals, slight fruit rind, citrus. Overall rather light in body for a dubbel with some inappropriate flavors for the style, and lacking in overall good flavors regardless of style. Somewhat like a session dark lager.

Bottle (22oz): Dark reddish. Small head. There was a fruity sweetness that surprised me (just hope it was not the sip of a cider I had had before). Not very familiar with this type of beer, but enjoyed it. Should try again.

Pours a dark, dark brown, with tan head. Aroma of malts and dark fruit, with a sweet edge to it. Taste is rich and slightly sweet, a good dark Belgian. Thumbs up.

22 ounce bottle into chalice, no bottle dating. Pours hazy very dark reddish brown color with a small light khaki head with decent retention, that reduces to a small lace cap. Minimal lacing on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big toffee, raisin, prune, banana, toast, molasses, dark bread, candi sugar, clove, pepper, light chocolate, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of big toffee, raisin, prune, banana, toast, dark bread, molasses, candi sugar, clove, pepper, light chocolate, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of toffee, raisin, prune, banana, toast, molasses, dark bread, candi sugar, clove, light chocolate, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of malt and yeast ester flavors; with great robustness and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a moderately creamy and slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent and unique Dubbel style. All around great balance and complexity of malt and yeast flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
