I poured a capped and corked 750 ml bottle into a chilled chalice.
A: It poured a cloudy mahogany color that when back lit was a bright cherry hue. The head was a light caramel with sticky bubbles that receded leaving a modest lacing.
S: I was first hit with a burst of dark molasses, dark roasted sweet malts, and yeasty dark aromas. There was also a undercurrent of dark spices and a moderate hop profile.
T: True to its aroma it gave an initial burst of sweet dark molasses and dark fruits with an earthy coffee backside. There was a woody and smoky flavor that blended well with a bit of spice and a distinct alcohol bite.
M: It was creamy and full bodied with a sticky richness, balanced carbonation and a sweet dry finish.
D: Nice dubbel with a decent kick, pleasant flavor and reasonably complex profile. I will keep a couple in my stash for tasting in a year or so...this one will improve with age.

Picked this up at a local wine and beer store here in SoCal on a whim. Was not disappointed at all. Was not overpowering but still had a great flavor. Stands up to its description. I tasted some dried fruits along with a little bit of banana bread and I'm a sucker for banana bread. This is definitely something I would pick up again.

On tap at the brewery in San Marcos.
Pours deep amber with a white head that soon reduces but leaves nice patterns of sticky lacing on the glass.
Aroma: intriguing fruity (dark fruit) aroma with a some medium malt base and alcohol esters
Flavor: slightly more yeasty/funky than the aroma, but not challenging to drink. Good sweet/bitter balance.
Feel: near medium body; medium, lightly crisp carbonation.
O: lacks the complexity and well hidden ABV of fine Belgian versions.
Serving type: on-tap
