A nice dense off-white foam of perhaps a finger or so covers a nice chestnut brown ale. My pour included some of the lees from the bottom of the bottle so there was a slight haze.
Aromas of caramel malts, some raisins or dark fruit, and that Belgian yeasty smell. Pretty classic for a dubbel, but with a little bit more fruit.
Flavors are nicely joined on the tongue with caramel malts coming on first and then folding nicely into a complex splash of dark fruit, a slight bitterness, and some of the bready yeast. There is some of that brown sugar on the back end as well. The mouthfeel was a little thin, but still pulls off some creaminess that was a little unexpected.
I enjoyed this brew a bunch! It had notes of a typical dubbel but also has some character of its own. Nice.
