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.
