A: Ovila is deep copper in color, and pours with an enormous head of a creamy color. The lacing is the most impressive aspect here, with millions of pinhead-sized bubbles racing to the top of this brew, and its head never falls below 1/2" in thickness.
S: The bouquet is vibrant, with great hints of stone fruit, clove, and rum.
T: What a display of balance! Ovila boasts notes of stone fruit, rum, clove, and a touch of chocolate. This brew displays all of the characters of a great Belgian-made dubbel.
M: The full body and chewy texture of this brew is emphasized by its extreme level of carbonation. It displays the awesomely creamy texture only found in the best dubbels.
D: This is a top notch dubbel from one of my favorite breweries in America. It has all of the attributes I look for in this style, and doesn't seem to have a single flaw. Congrats, SN, on another amazing brew, I look forward to the next two offerings in this lineup.
