A: Pours a mahogan/ruby brown color with about a finger of off-white head. Lots of yeast floaties even after a gentle pour.
S: Lots of sweet fruit on the nose - plums, dates, and raisins. Spicy Belgian yeast and some sweet candied sugar as well.
T: Not quite as flavorful as the nose would suggest, but still tasty. The characteristic earthy spice of Belgian yeast is most prominent, with subtle fruity sweetness and hints of nuttiness mixed in. Extremely drinkable at 7% alcohol.
M: Full bodied with subtle carbonation. Dry, spicy finish.
O: A great Dubbel. The nose was the highlight for me, but everything about it is solid. Impressively drinkable for the alcohol content. Definitely something to seek out.

From a bottle into a chalice, at about cellar temperature.
It's head is kind of non-existent, with even an aggressive pour making just a tiny amount of beige fizz which settles to a ring quickly. However, it's got a pretty copper-like reddish brown body in which I can view carbonation bubbles and a lot of nice sediment, which becomes a really thick CLOUD of sediment once I pour out the last of the beer.
To me it smells like caramel, cherries, maple, and ripe apples and bananas.
It also tastes of tart green apples and ripe bananas to an extent. The finish is bready with a bit of dry hoppiness.
The carbonation is expectedly high, and the body feels kinda medium.
Not a mind-blowing Belgian ale, but nevertheless a really solid one. I'm definitely glad I got to try it.
