On draft at the IH location. Pour was mahoganey to brown with a nice smooth head, which yielded good lacing. The aroma was dark fruity esters, some caramel, some cocoa, faint breadiness (much less so than their standard abbey dubbel, although this one also pushed close to a BSA). The flavor followed all of the aroma and this ended each sip with a bid of that bready dryness, which is welcomed. Perhaps also a faint showing of hops, moreso than many an Abbey brew. A nice smooth quaffer in the Belgian style.
