Dark red-brown pour with a raisin quality in the smell and a toasted caramel taste, subtle coriander and clove, lots of fruity yeast and a little bit of warming alcohol in the spicy finish.

Great carbonation and mouthfeel--impressive dubbel, especially at this price point! I will definitely buy again.

Bottle purchased at Happy Harry's Grand Forks, South, BB Sep 2012. Poured into a Perfect Pint Glass ~5C

A: Copper, clear with a two finger pale head that laces very nicely.
S: Initially light barnyard, then develops into a pepper / funk sort of pairing. Nice...
T: Hints of chocolate underneath layers of raisins. Some clove / pepper plays well in there along with the dried fruit. A little too light on the flavours though.
M: Good carbonation, coats the mouth well. Finishes with the fruit sticking to the palate.
O: A really nice beer with good "belgian" character... Just more Belgian-ness (is that a word?) is needed to crank this up to great.
