Date on the bottle is 02/21/12
A - Pourd out a opaque light mahogany brew. The off white head died off fast and gathered toward the edges of the glass. Appears nicely carbonated.
S - Big malted toffee notes right in the front, cherries, toasted quality, light chocolate, and a slight bitterness in the background. This ones nose is really smooth and pleasant with no alcohol detected.
T - In the front I get a toffee, cherries, hard candy-ish flavor, plum, and some slight bitterness. This ones flavor is really lighter then what I expected, and the flavors come and go fast with not much aftertaste at all. No alcohol detected, only a warmth in my belly tells me that this beer is not to be messed with.
M - Its dry and well carbonated moving the beer rather nicely over the palate. Has medium to light in the mouth and really goes down easy.
O - For a 8.7% Dubbel this brew drinks really easy and could get dangerous with not a trace of alcohol on it. A rather nice refreshing unique dubbel that comes in unusually dry. A must try for a fan of the style because its unlike any that I have had so far. Cheers!

Picked up a 12 ounce bottle from the local bottle shop (took a try on a 2013... thought it could handle the age well)... not expecting be knocked out but wanting to give another Goose Island a try. Poured into my tulip glass. Nothing tremendous on appearance... unfiltered (that's ok), 1/2 finger of head was gone quickly, interesting mahogany hue. The aroma was awesome... raisins and dark fruit, apples or pears, molasses, and of course, Belgium. Aside from the presence of alcohol in the taste, all of the aromas were strong in the flavor profile. Not a ton of the 'funk', and overall a great flavor balance. Velvety mouthfeel... one of the most enjoyable I have tried for mouthfeel. Overall, this was excellent... great balance to this beer, and a pleasant surprise. As a big IPA and stout guy, before long I might be drawn to more of the Belgian styles... pick one up.
