Bottle from 2010
A: pours a reddish brown, mahogany hue with a small off white head that slowly fades into a St. Bernardus chalice
S: smells of dark fruits and a hint of alcohol. sweet on the nose overall
T: tastes of dark fruits, slight spice, bready malt, and a slight caramel sweetness. swallow brings a bit of alcohol, spicy yeast flavor and more dark fruits with lingering sweetness but just a touch of bitterness
M: more full than medium in the mouth. carbonation is pretty assertive. it starts off slow and then quickly prickles the palate. slightly drying initially but quickly fades
O: Very good and to style. quite drinkable and well crafted. I haven't delved deeply into the style but this was a very nice introduction.

A - rusty-colored with little to no head and very little lacing. Something must be wrong with my tulip glass, because another reviewer got a whole bunch of head and a lot of lacing!

S - I'm getting yeast and fruit, mostly banana or does yeast always smell like banana? No one else smelled banana.

T - yeast and fruit.

M - Medium and oily. Decent carbonation.

O - Very drinkable. Good Chicago Dubbel.

Appearance is a dark red brown with the tiniest of white head.

The smell is dark malts, sweet and peppery.

The taste is much like the smell sweet and malty with a spicey peppery finish.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low to medium carbonation.

Overall a reasonably good beer, very sweet and malty.
