Bottle at home during a snow storm. This is a nice, malty, straightforward dubbel -- theres a lot of sweet raisin bread flavor, mixed with a faint but pleasant Belgian yeast aroma. More hop bitterness at the end than I expect for the style, but it works pretty well. Good stuff, especially considering how widely available it is.

Pour is a murky brown with a small tan head. Aroma is brown sugar sweetness with some plum. Flavor is brown sugar some dark fruit with some esters from the yeast but there is a nice richness. Not a overly flavorful dubbel but it is going in the right direction. A bit too sweet but the rich dark fruit shines here.

Color is glassy purple brown. Not a ton of head. Aroma is sugarplums and spices. Some nutty brown sugar. The flavor is sugary, with lots of plums and dates. There is a yeast presence but it is very subdued. This is a pretty good, chalky, mild Belgian dubbel.
