750mL capped bottle. no date.

appears a very dark brown. nice off-white head that fades to a thin covering that hangs around as I drink. smell is dominated by the trademark Belgian yeast esters, a touch of alcohol, raisin. taste is all malt. true to style. complex, good balance of sweet and dry. medium body, lower to mid level carbonation.

overall - a very good dubbel that stands up to the Belgian originals.

Poured from 750mL bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: rich, dark amber hue with only a small hint of haze. Effervescence is light, but head poured 2+ fingers of frothy light tan foam with decent retention and a nice lace. Pretty attractive!

Smell: marginally phenolic and alcoholic aroma show up first; perhaps not the best traits to emphasize in the nose. There is a mildly sweet fruitiness in the undertone as well. Not bad, as this is all to-style, but it's not particularly welcoming.

Taste: slightly phenolic dubble-type taste right up front. There is a little bit of dark fruitiness here. Strangely, the phenolic band-aid/old-bubblegum flavor here isn't out of line at all; it's mild enough to be palatable but strong enough to be genuine. An interesting combo.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and a damn big creaminess. Silky and creamy -- love it!

Overall: an interesting dubbel. I prefer it to your over-caramel or over-biscuity dubbels, but the alcoholic and phenolic characters are just a little bit overcharged.

Purchased at DeCiccos in Pelham for $4.99 on sale - summer 2012. Sat in my fridge until the tasting on 12/21/12.
Poured from bottle into crooked stave tulip glass. Poured a see-through maple syrup brown with a finger of off white head reducing down to pencil thin lacing. Looks thin...
Aroma was very metallic at first, but as it warms it has a lot of funk aroma mixed with maple sugar or belgian candi sugar. Taste is nice funk with candi sugar/maple. Some dried fruit - date/figgy/raison but sour. Its a bit too thin and very sour..which would be great if it was supposed to be a sour...
Overall, a nice brew. I actually enjoyed the sour/funk but not very representative of what we all know as a dubbel...Im thinking this is most likley what a dubbel used to taste like centuries ago. Although it pains me to say this, but its a good brew.
