4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2007 Bottle has no notching on date codes, but best by? date stamp is 04-05-07; maybe 5 years old? Pours cloudy, dark brown. Huge head quickly boils away to nothing. Aroma is toffee and chocolate-covered cherries with slight alcohol. Flavor is yummy caramel chocolate with slight hop bittering at the end to provide great balance. Palate is dry and medium bodied. Great beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark, deep red with a creamy off-white head and good lace. Faint aroma - fresh, dark cherries and sweet malt. Amazing flavour - quite subtle for a dubbel. Fresh dark cherries, cranberry, peppery hops, ends in a tart (but not sour) hoppy finish that warms. Creamy body, thin but milky. This is perhaps the most unassuming dubbel I have tasted, but so pleasant, fresh, and refined as to easily be the best. I wish I had more of these.
