First time I had it I made notes later and said I like it I need to try it again. I just did. Pretty awesome. Probably my favorite double
Had it again in December 2016. Did not really care for it so much. Knocked it down from up 4.3 to a 3.7

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2017 Got this one from the 6 pack around Easter. The alcohol is a bit too overwhelming. Not bad overall. Got another one after baseball today, warming up to this one. Giving it a a 0.5 more. toposito (6) - Texas, USA - JUL 1, 2017 does not count
This is perhaps the best Belgian-style strong dark ale produced in Canada. Amazing taste, you won't be disappointed!

Ar: Fig, plum, and Christmas-spiced banana; some peachy sweetness. Ap: Deep amber and cloudy; small off-white head, recedes into a thin cap of foam. T: Bright banana, juicy peach, plums, and treacle; toasty-sweet melanoidins; cloves, black pepper, and cinnamon; medium-low bitterness, a slightly herbal flavor; finish is peach skins, cloves, and apricot. P: Medium body with very high carbonation; finish is dry. O: A very solid beer; great mixture of fruit, malt, and cooked-sugar flavors; nice mouthfeel, very firm and rich without being cloying; delicious! oobawa (1591) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 5, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2017 Big, rich Belgian Strong Ale, complex and ever-changing as it warms. Pours a deep, dark mahogany red-brown with a massive beige head and decent lacing. Nose offers plenty of yeasty esters, bread and clove on top of red apples. Taste is just as diverse, starting with a semisweet hint of dough and clove, then giving up a melange of overripe fruits, apples and bananas and peaches all tinged with the slightest toffee caramel sweetness. Finishes dark and clingy, yet the booze never comes into play. (Probably helps this bottle is at least two years old.) Wasn’t expecting this beer to be as delectable as it is, but, hell, it’s pretty tasty. beer-yum (1836) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 5, 2017
Laid back spicy fruit aroma in a copper pour. Similar spicy fruit body with a hint of banana and bubblegum. Pretty much what you want from a Belgian Dubbel.
