3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This double poured a deep amber colour with a nice, big brown head. Scents include ripe fruit, caramel, cooked veggies and spices. First swig was sweet and creamy with flavours of cinnamon and brown sugar most predominant. An almost oily mouthfeel with very low carbonation, it sits quite sweet on the palate. Flavours of caramel and yeast linger...

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Bottle share at DLD 2013. Pour is deep amber with a quickly disappearing head. Aroma is very much belgian with notes of key lime pie, raspberry, banana, golden raisins, and coriander. Flavor is similar but with more of a spice/vegetable kick at the end. Strange, but good.

Can. Aroma of done sugar candy, citrus. Taste is like a caramel bomb, done lemongrass. This actually could be pretty interesting but not really working.
