22-ounce bottle pours a sparkling clear ruby -- gorgeous color -- with tan head and lacing that dissipates rapidly. Aroma: dried dark fruits, dark brown sugar, honey, raspberries, chocolate-covered cherries. Flavor: malt-forward with molasses, toffee and agave, along with figs, dates, raisins, prunes, cherries, strawberries, bananas, vanilla beans, black pepper. Mouthfeel: full-bodied, slick.

22 ounce bottle into chalice, no bottle dating. Pours hazy very dark reddish brown color with a small light khaki head with decent retention, that reduces to a small lace cap. Minimal lacing on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big toffee, raisin, prune, banana, toast, molasses, dark bread, candi sugar, clove, pepper, light chocolate, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of big toffee, raisin, prune, banana, toast, dark bread, molasses, candi sugar, clove, pepper, light chocolate, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of toffee, raisin, prune, banana, toast, molasses, dark bread, candi sugar, clove, light chocolate, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of malt and yeast ester flavors; with great robustness and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a moderately creamy and slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent and unique Dubbel style. All around great balance and complexity of malt and yeast flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

Bomber as a gift. Clear deep red body with a tall head. Though nice immediately out of the fridge, this gets amazing as it warms. Aromas of plums, dark cherry, soil, and chocolate waft from the glass. Palate is full, but still on the dryish side. Every thing is clean and direct. It’s delightfully fruity. Nice malty toffee balance with notes of sweet bread and chocolate. Spot on textbook dubbel.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle with a creamy head. Malt dominates the taste with notes of plum, cherry, and banana. It finishes dry.

Sampled on tap at SIB. Pours a cloudy brown/orange with a small off-white lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast, apricots, caramel malts, tangerine and banana. Flavour of Belgian yeast, banana and apricot. Fruits with a dry mouth feel. Nice.
