Draft at source. In Miami. Nose is light medicinal. Almost sharpie. Light fig. Taste is better. Just kind of sweet with some alcohol presence. Missing dried fruits and complexity. Very one dimensional. Dry finish.

On tap @ Abbey Brewing. Pours heavy reddish dark brown, with thick creamy off-white head. Aroma is dark sweet toasted caramel malts, lots of rich figs, leather, oak, hazelnuts. Taste is similar - creamy rich roasty malt, juicy figs and raisins, nice clean bone dry finish. Very light Belgian yeast notes. Well done dubbel, rich and tasty, I enjoyed this.

Frank (4061) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Thereís a ton of fruity yeast character to this one. Itís cloudy dark amber with a long lasting head. Itís got tons of plum, banana and spice in the nose--a real fruitcake of a beer. This is a bit too sweet bit does have a nice toffee malt character and rich, thick texture to show for it. Tasty Belgian. If it was dry, it would be excellent.

EchtBier (2) - Potomac Falls, Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2015 does not count
Served on tap Very dark at the bar so hard to see true color but looks correct to style. Poured with nice lace, creamy light toffee head All the flavored you would expect (raisin, spice etc) but later noticed a taste that couldn't quite discern - maybe a burnt backbone? Right now not my favorite but full disclosure-just recovering from being ill so taste may be off ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
