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.
