4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Malty, sweet aroma with pleasant dark fruit esters and a light clove spice. Hops aren't apparent on the nose. No diacytyl or DMS. The appearance is a cloudy dark amber with a nice long lasting off-white head. The flavor has a malty, caramel sweetness with a licorice note on the finish. Fruity esters are moderate. The beer is malt forward. The mouthfeel is medium-full with a smooth milkshake like feel. No astringency is noticed. The carbonation is medium high. Overall, a great example of the style. Extremely smooth with a pleasant aroma and taste. A nice after dinner beer.

Pours dark amber from the bottle. Huge, foamy head. Aroma is caramelized sugar, light cherry. Taste is sweet, a bit cloying, complemented by a mild tangy note. Body is light. Overall too sweet and one dimensional. KansaiBeerLvrs (5157) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 11, 2017
Bottle from rakuten served in a tulip. A lovely ruby brown with a long lasting beige head. The aroma is massively fragrant giving off a mouthwatering spicy raisin bread odor.
Full bodied with a round carbonation combined with a sharp finish. The taste is sweet fruity raisins, plums, molasses and some booziness. Good but KBC’s was easier to drink, more sessionable I’d say.

Brown color. Fruity aroma, nice caramel malt tones. Tastes is sweet with some fruity yeast tones, but balanced by a perfect spicy finish. Notes of licorice, caramel, dried fruits, fennel, a bit of clove are evident. Finishes nice and spicy...bit of roast. An incredible dubbel.
