Tongue coating thick sweetness. Not entirely unpleasant, but so unidimensional that I was tiring of it long before I finished.

750 ml bottle - Whole Foods. Austin, Tx. Pours a dark chestnut brown with a thick, fluffy khaki colored head, thick creamy lacing. Aroma has some whiffs of nuts, alcohol, brandy and ripe raisins. Flavor has some elements of chocolate, cherries, and dates. Just the right amount of carbonation. Alcohol hidden very well. Strong finish. A very drinkable and enjoyable Dubbel.

kumite56 (472) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - OCT 29, 2004
This beer poor a dark ruby color with a nice frothy off white to beige head. Lots of lacing on this clear bodied brew. Aroma is nice with significant fruit in the nose and malt. Flavor is of dried fuit, sliglthy sweet initial flavor and yeast. Not a bad beer. Palare is also nice and substantial.
