Bottle. The pour was a dark murky chestnut brown with a slight reddish hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) light tan creamy head that lasted throughout with excellent sheeting of lacing which basically coated the glass.
The aroma was of a toasted biscuit malt and a sweaty Belgian yeast with notes of caramel, toffee, banana and some dark fruit (plums and overripe grapes).
The taste had a strong malty presence and a mild sweetness with a hint of banana and caramel early on, and then slowly transformed into a much yeastier taste with a large dose of dark fruit and a mild toffee presence towards the end. The flavor lasted a good amount of time after the swallow with a sweet yeasty flavor and a mild fruity ester that was left to linger on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was somewhere between light and medium in body with a creamy and a tad oily texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall an extremely tasty and very easy to drink Dubbel, and is a brew that hides all notion of somewhat moderate ABV...

Pours a nice dark brown color with a few floaties in it with a good head. Aroma is malty, nutty, toffee, figs, vinous cherry, almonds, toasty. Taste is aggressive malt, nuts, and figs with a background of toffee and toasted almonds. Very good dubbel, very carbonated on the mouthfeel as well for a 6.7% beer, definitely a solid example of the style.
