look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

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.
