3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep brown with a very thick tan head which leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet with biscuit and yeast. Also some nice hovering hints of anise seed. Taste is sweet of caramel and toffee. Licorice and slight metal notes comes through on the finish. Full bodied with lots of carbonation. Starts of feeling a bit chewy but ends up with a nice dryness. Overall a nice dubbel but I’ve certainly had better. I was surprised at how drinkable it was for the slightly higher ABV.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
2014. The cork shot out like a rocket when I removed the cork.
Pours a see through garnet with plenty of foam and lacing.
Candi sugar, dark fruit, with some spice in the smell.
Dark fruit, mostly raisins, candi sugar, cinnamon and a pronounced cardboard flavour; could be past its prime.
Medium body with medium carbonation. The way the cork shot out, I thought it might be over carbonated.
Not terrible at this stage in its bottled life but I have little desire to revisit.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy caramel with a lingering off white head. Nose is brown sugar, bread, and touches of hops, Belgian esters, and alcohol. Flavor is similar to the nose and quite rich with plenty of smoothness. Finish is quick and down the middle. Not as dynamic as some bigger belgians but definitely a good beer.
