07 Edition. Bottle states flavor will develop over 5 years. Poured into a tulip, this mahoghany liquid has loads of suspended sediment particles. There is a small off-white colored head that doesnt last long, though a collar of it remains around the edge of the glass. Aroma is of bananna, clove, candied sugar, spice, and fruit.
This is a very taste dubbel. A sweet blend of spice, caramel, fruit, toasted malt, vanilla, and a touch of bourbon flavor in the background, though there is no noticeable booze. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel. A very good dubbel. I can't remember having a better American brewed dubbel.

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.
