When starting an uprising, two is always better than one. Or so Ive been told. And after you try Dubbel Fisted, youll find out the reason for its namesake. While peering into a glass of the deep amber colored brew youre holding in your drinking hand, youll realize that you probably want one in your open hand too. Rich chocolate, caramel, and plum notes are almost too tempting for words.

ALLOVATE (2992) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 8, 2017
2013 vintage.
Kept this one for a bit. Paid off it seems.
A chalice at cellar temperature. Fiery deepest copper and just shy of bright. Big Belgian head held the length followed by signature lacing. Prominently earthy, umami, charbroiled beef nose; slightly sweet, twinging of the olfactories with a hit of plum, raisin and muscatel. Light spice of booze with the later long whiff. Creamy mouthfeel; quite full and plump - strange for a Dubbel. Oily and viscous finish. Long bitter, savoury fruit mince pie length. Meaty, umami palate with touches of cocoa and roasted carob, dominant raisin and Shiraz grape. Earthy overall. Holds the alcohol well on the palate but the nose cedes a heat. Enjoyable. Actually got engrossed by it. Lovely!!
