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

A - A deep, cloudy brown-red. Medium-sized head that dissipated quickly. Lots of sediment in this one, I thought my glasses might have been dirty.

S - Subtle, sweet.

T - Hard-hitting, the fig/cherry/plum similar to their dubbel mixed with cinnamon, cloves, spices. Initial sweetness gives way to lasting bitterness. Delicious.

M - Fully carbonated, medium- to full-bodied. Typical Belgian.

O - I really enjoyed the Affligem Dubbel and Tripel, and once again they have impressed. Right up there with my favorite Belgian Christmas, the St. Bernardus. Would gladly purchase this beer again, maybe even go out of my way to seek it out.
