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

Poured into an Ommegang chalice from the 750 mL bottle. Love the label design on this one - very classy.

Pours a fairly dark brown with hints of amber. Not opaque; mostly clear with moderate amount of haze. Slightly off-white head bubbles up to about two fingers. Lacing is not very sticky.

Smells of some rich malt, Belgian yeast, mildly spicy, and suggestions of fruits, but very subtle.

Rich malt flavors strike you right away. Some hints of fruits, followed by yeast, mild bitterness, bready finish.

Body and carbonation seem to be on the low side for a Dubbel. Medium bodied.

I was excited about this one - a very cool story. I'm also looking forward to the next two releases. Didn't quite live up to my anticipation, but still a nice venture by Sierra Nevada into the Belgianosphere. (I call first on that word - nothing comes up in a Google search so I may empirically conclude that this word has never been used before. It may never be used again.)
