UPDATED: APR 5, 2016 Absolutely delicious when served not too cold and after allowing the lively carbonation to ease. Rich, dark dried fruit flavours and a little booze on the nose. Perfectly warming!

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours deep dark opaque brown with an almost soda-like dark tan head - almost looked like a thick coca-cola. Dissipated over a couple minutes leaving minimal lacing. Aroma is sweetened coffee, dark chocolate, hints of caramel and roasted nuts and maybe even a little leather. Taste is dark yet sweet fruits supported by coffee and caramel chocolate undertones. Theres an immediate bitterness that lingers to a black coffee aftertaste. The palate is creamy and a bit viscous but is cut nicely by lively carbonation. It’s a big beer, great for sipping. Only one is needed. I like this and appreciate it as a great beer, but personally don’t love it.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark copper color. Sparkling, quickly disappearing head. Aroma of fresh wood, plums. Taste of malts, caramel, dried fruits (banana). Nice quite fizzy carbonation, which comes up especially in aftertaste. Pretty light body, becomes a bit watery in the end. Easily achievable, easily drinkable, balanced, more than decent dubbel.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazelnut brown color with a beautiful, huge, fluffy head, which maintains a solid coating even after a couple of minutes.
Smells of ripe red apples, a hint of honey, toffee and dusty wood. A subtle earth addition mingles into the profound apple sweetness, evoking apple pith qualities, perfectly complimented by the honey.
Has a higher carbonation with a still enjoyable smooth, soft mouthfeel to it.
Tastes of earth and toffee coated red apples, together with a raisins quality and a hint of bakers chocolate. Produces a leafy dryness, evoking more earth and a mix of honey and caramel sweetness, creating an intriguing balance. Apple pith, plack peppers and cardamom spiced up hops build the finish of this surprisingly hoppy beer, creating a clean, enjoyable ending.
Extremely well put together, creating a great drinking experience full of fruits, honey and a rustic malt character. Its sweetness is far away from dominating the taste, as for its herbal dryness, blending perfectly into the rich, earthen malts.
