look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Bottle pour at The Belgians Are Coming held in Old Town Newhall in Newhall, CA.

Pours a murky orange-brown with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, brown sugar, caramel, spice, and dark fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with dark fruit and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a solid dark fruit and spice presence in the aroma and flavor.

Serving type: bottle

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

On tap at Arte&Sana cervecería in Málaga, Spain.

Appearance: dark mahogany/brown, bubbly 2 finger white head

Smell: dark fruits, oak, pepper, belgian yeast

Taste: Lots of overripe darkfruits, more specifically cherry an apple that dominate the palate initially. Very sweet, belgian yeast come through after the initial fruit bomb, followed by notes of pepper, coriander, apple, and pear. Finish is sort of medicinal, not in a bad way, but the cherriness really lingers a lot. Finish is dry and sweet, almost like a red wine in a way.

Mouthfeel: not as carbonated as other dubbels but still medium to high, medium bodied.

Overall: Not as good as the big trappist dubbels, but this is unique in its own eay and can hold its own as a belgian i would reccomend. Especially if you like te really overripe fruit and cherry taste.

Serving type: on-tap
