Malty Overtones. Would make an excellent dessert beer

Carmel in color, sweet on the nose with a warm maltiness. The flavour is rich, malty, and sweet. This has become a favorite, at least the 2012

Bottle from July 2012 poured into tulip glasses and shared. Beautiful clear chestnut brown color with half finger of slightly off-white head that dissipates and leaves minimal lacing. Nice dried fruit and Belgian candy aroma. Taste is delicious and perfect to the style - raisins, currants, dried apricot, candy, and a slight sharp bitterness to offset the sweet. Mouth feel was dryer than I expected, making the beer seem thin for style, but actually probably makes it more drinkable. Overall, a pretty solid take on the Belgian Dubbel, albeit a bit pricey in this case ($9.50 for 22 oz).
