3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (330ml). Via trade with mouton_noire. Murky deep chestnut, large creamy tan head with a lovely thick lace. Sharp peppery yeast, sweet malt, bitter and lactic. Taste is a nice sour malt tang, bitter alcohol in the finish, lightly spiced, improves dramatically as it warms. Average body, nicely lively and complex mouthfeel, slightly sour aftertaste, pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of the least impressive Belgianís Iíve had... rated at a 3.7. Not too bad for an average brew. Take the commercial description and wind it down some and you have this one. One of the weaker Belgianís Iíve experienced... Chimay and Unibroue supplies more, but definately true...

Deep copper to ruby in color with a small off-white head.malty/bready/yeasty aroma with mild alcohol notes. Starts sweet and ends sweeter, with a smooth full body. A beer that gets better as it warms up.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a brownish amber color. Aroma is huge of deep fruityness and aged cognac. Has a fruity flavor, with a nutty background and an anisette like element. Alcohol is somewhat surfaced, but pleasant and has a late spicy, roasty toffee like aspect. Nice Dubbel, well done.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark, hazy reddish-amber color. Sweet floral aroma, elements of malt, yeast, dried fruits (dates, cherries). Rich, complex flavors: sweet malts, yeast, fresh fruits (apples, pears), dried fruits (dates, raisins), Nice velvety-soft mouthfeel. This one seemed to offer just a bit more in terms of depth than the typical dubbel...pretty awesome. A five minute walk from my apartment takes me to an amazing bar where I can get these...I look forward to having many more!
