look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Pours a crimson hued brown with a pinky of cream colored head. Above average lacing & average head retention
S: Plums, cinnamon & red hots candy, plus funk once warm
T: Follows the nose, a touch of leafy hops & funk up front. Funk picks up once warm, more cinnamon, a bit of leafy hops & oaky dryness, a bit of green bananas. Finishes dry, oaky with a fruity kiss of plums, persimmons & cinnamon
MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation
Drinks easy, not mind blowing, but enjoyable. If you want mucho funk or hate cinnamon, this is not your beer I'm betting..

3.29/5 rDev -9.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Deep crimson red pour, strange for a dubbel, with a one finger beige head that quickly gave way to a thin beige ring around the beer. Minimal lacing on the glass.
Smell: Raisins, earth tones, figs, strange cherry notes, a spicy scent I can't describe.
Taste: This is where the beer went sideways to me, at least in a style sense. Sweet figs and raisins with coffee tones in the front of the drink with just the lightest kick of hop spice in the middle. The finish is a mix of cherries with an earthy aftertaste that seems to linger. There is no hint of trappist or belgian yeast here. This is the strangest tasting dubbel I have ever tried.
Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation, the carbonation feel seemed to increase as the drink warmed. Still easy drinking and with the alcohol notes hidden so well it would be a dangerous session beer.
Overall: Not by any means a bad beer, just not true to the advertised style. I like the beer and will have again.
