It’s tempting to write pretty much what the bottle says; turns out to be fairly accurate. The nose is mostly musty dark fruit and a vague whiff of bready yeast. More dark fruits and carmelized sugar in the taste with the usual dubbel funky yeast notes. One thing I really liked was the gorgeous slightly cloudy mahogany color of the beer, very nice with backlighting. Enough carbonation and lack of actually syrupy qualities, give this a descent mouthfeel. Really not a unique offering of the style, but a good one.
