2.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.33L bottle. Pours a clear brown with a rocky tan head. Really nice, rich, fruity aroma. Initial flavor is sweet belgian candi sugar with some hints of cherry. Middle transitions to a mild, dry bitterness with some burnt sugar and roasted malt flavor. Finishes with warm alcohol and and mild bitterness and cloying sugar in the back of the throat. Mild carbonation with a heavy body and thick mouthfeel. Overall, ok beer. Really nice aromas, and typical heavy, bruin texture without a ton of complexity in the flavor profile.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is deep brick red with a tan head. Aroma is sweet fruits, raisin, plum, brown sugar, sweet malt. Full bodied with refined (i.e. tiny bubbles) carbonation. Flavor lacks a bit of the depth of the aroma but is still once. Plum and raisin, some light sweet ripe fruit, and a bit of alcohol that leads us to the finish. A decent dubbel but I wish the flavor stood up with the aroma.
