3.78/5  rDev -1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

330ml bottle poured into tulip 13/7/11

A a slight haze in a deep maroon body with sediment being moved around by lots of bubbles that feed a long lasting cream colored head that leaves little lace

S some spicy plum with lots of brown sugar and some cola, I pick up on the faintest bubble gum and some very bruised banana, very complex nose

T lacking compared to the smell, the same spicy fruity notes I pick up on the nose but its weaker and I'm not tasting everything I could smell

M a little over carbonated as it turns to foam in your mouth, just on the verge of creamy but over the edge on the foamy side

O "good" but I'll have to leave it at that, slightly less bubbles and a flavor to match the nose would set this above many dubbles, but good ain't bad

nothing to be ashamed of but nothing to put it in a class of its own either, try it if its convenient for you

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a leather couch brown with a thin tan head (poured in chalice) that died quickly with no lace. A yeasty, orange smell with some other fruits that are tart and some faint caramel notes. Nutty, bready and full of yeast for a full-bodied puffiness. Has some sweet malt and tart fruit taste, along with hints of spice. Everything is noticeable but mild in a smooth, easy-going body. Not a powerful dubble or anything amazing, just a solid sessionable (to a point) dubbel.

3.78/5  rDev -1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Brown-reddish hazy body with earthy nose.

Convincing taste, broad and smoky in the beginnend, but getting lighter towards the end. Smoke keeps sticking to the palate for a while but does not really contribute too much substance to the aftertaste.

Nice, drinkable and smoke-centred Dubbel with an rather unbalanced finish.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured a soft brown and ruby color with a full finger of frothy head that settled well. Smell was full: of plums, grapes, whisky, and oak notes. Had an earthy core, though altogether a wine-like character - inviting. Taste was dark and highly woody, but also of grapes, a thin but good malt, and a citrus tinge. Had a light finish, softly dry and earthy, and developed a creamy cheese-like aftertaste that was strong with time. Watery mouthfeel, thus easy to drink but not terribly impressive.
