Keg at The Hanging Bat. Pours brown with a thin off-white head. Aromas are banana, dark sugar, raisins. Taste brings more banana sweetness. Couldnít finish the other ingredients. Easy drinking for sure though.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
I find it interesting that this beer isnít at 99%. Itís quite delightful and a perfect example of a well done yet unique dubbel. Belgian style dubbels are a hard category to compete in, with fine Trappist ales as the standard, but this brew holds its own for true dubbel connoisseurs.
Itís nicely sweet with floral overtones and a crisp, dry, noble hop finish. Tastes of caramel, raisin, rose and a hint of biscuit. The pour is also nothing to complain about, with a delicate head and deep red hue which is distinctly impenetrable. Something you look for in a good dubbel. The palate is light yet full with a light buttery texture.
I will certainly buy this again.

Cold can. Pours a dirty dark red / brown, slightly sparkling, small white head doesnít last. Aroma of sour caramel, cherry cola, clay. Body is medium, slightly foamy, lowish carbonation. Taste - very sweet caramel (oversweet), slight coffee overtones, spearmint, metallic, soft cherry finish. Alright.

Can. Hazy dark orange. Aroma is sweetly herbal on a barley candy base. Caramel malts support notes of ginger, perfumey citrus (not truly kaffir though), and breakfast tea. No hint of the ABV, but a bit too sweet to be sessionable, at least for me anyway.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma of smoked malts, amber malts, herbs, molasses, citrus and I can smell subtle lime. Amber appearance with decent lace. Nicely blended flavors amber malts, slight metallic tank notes, hop resin, subtle lime notes, cinnamon and herbs. Overall, this is a nice beer with herb and molasses overtones and subtle lime. Donít get the lemongrass or coriander notes as much though. A- rating.
