I found this as part of a sampler pack from Goose Island and I brought it home with a fat roast beef hero to watch football today.
I meant to pour this for my wife as I had the Matilda Ale, but I sneaked a good portion as I really like dubbel styles.
The brownish orange ale poured to generous head that reminded me of coffee ice cream in its aroma and appearence. I inhaled a generous helping before tasting the sweetness I was not expecting.
The smooth taste was slightly hindered by the sweetness, which was a helpful pointer on other qualities of the ale. I thought about fruit flavors and how this ale would taste great with a sweet and sour pork.

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.
