12oz bottle at home - pours deep delicious brown color - low aroma - tastes malty with hints of dark fruit - a little harsh on the pallet in the aftertaste.

Not sure Im in tune with the Belgian dubbel style-ry, as thats one of my favorites, and this bears little resemblance. However, its not bad, whatever it is. Pours a nice dark brown with thin tan head that eventually fades to a ring. Color is very nice, darker than any dubbel Ive seen. Aroma is its weakest area - very flat, with just slight notes of dark fruit and malt sweetness. Nothing bad, just mild. Flavor is much better than the nose, with a medium-light body delivering some nice plums and raisins without ever being dry or astringent. Fairly smooth mouthfeel and decent finish make this okay. Ill try again fresher, since I got this at end of season.

Deep brown/red, like an unfiltered apple cider. Sweet, yeasty, fruity nose...not too overpowering. Thick tan head that disappears with lacing after a few minutes. Spices, fruit, slight bittering hops dominate the taste. Nutmeg, weak cinnamon, banana, cloves. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy with mild carbonation.

MF: soft carbon, medium to full body. Taste: some alcohol, banana, lots of dried fruits, bit earthy, dark chocolate, soft bitterness. Aftertaste: lots of dried fruits, raisins, banana, caramel, soft sweetness, more chocolate.

Bottle pour into tulip pint glass. Aroma is strong dark fruit/apple smell with astringent alcohol like acetone or witch hazel. Appearance is deep red, almost like a sangria, with huge chunks of dark yeast floating about (forgot to withhold last bit in the bottle--doh!), no sparkle, quickly-fading 1/2 finger-width head to ring of off-white. No lacing. Taste is dark fruit moderate sweetness. Palate is medium bodied with sticky, thick texture, lively carbonation (stings a little) and dry finish. Overall, this certainly gets the fruity end of the taste scale but lack of complexity and deficits in aroma, appearance and palate drag it down.
